RUGBY: INTERNATIONALS 2010 Nov 13 http://twitter.com/RuggaChick
The end of year Internationals continue with thrilling rugby action that went down this weekend. All-though Italy looked strong from the start, they struggled to pass the try line! With 6 all at halftime, the Pumas where the 1st to score a try. After a few penalties a piece, a yellow card and a penalty try the Pumas still have 5 wins in a row against the Italians. The Boks might have been the 1st to have points on the score board, but most of the game was dominated by an attacking Welsh side. The boks put up a fight and used their experience to send over two tries, securing a 2nd victory on the road. Ireland were off to the perfect start and on the score board from the 2nd minute. Samoa looked strong and convincing after the break, with a penalty narrowing the scoreline. All in all Ireland had the last say with a comfortable win. England stepped up after last weekends defeat and produced a smashing game of rugby. O’Connor struggled a bit with his kicking duties and all-though Kurtley put up a great individual performance, things just didn’t seem to go right for the Wallabies. England celebrated their 2nd consecutive victory. With both sides fighting terrible weather conditions, penalties separated the two sides for the 1st 20 min. France stepped up the pace, took advantage of the field possession and the scrums, pushed over a few tries and secured the win! Leaving Fiji... Frustrated. The All Blacks were ready for action and Scotland’s defensive line had some serious problems. The only action from Scotland’s side was a penalty, knock-ons and tackles. 7 Tries sealed the deal for the All Blacks.
