    I didn't see anything wrong with either try.

    Thought the PK leading to the second try was questionable because I thought it may have touched an England hand after the black knock on but no complaints really.

    Cracking game so far. AB's under pressure and playing some dumb footy for 35 minutes but showing class in the final 5 minutes as they often do.

    Is it me or is Stuart Barnes just plain ignorant of the laws? So many times he just exspoused a point of view that was either wrong, irrelevant or biased. At one point towards the end of he match, he was suggesting England could steal a line out during a scrum. So annoying, I wish there was an alternative.

    Any thoughts on a section of England supporters singing «*Swing Low*» to drown out the haka?
    Seemed disrespectful to me, but was it really disrespectful?

    I thought many moons ago Mr. Barnes took an L1 course to hone his knowledge - perhaps he needs a refresher?

    Personally, doing anything to disrupt the haka is disrespectful, and therefore not part of rugby.

    I don't think it's really possible to be disrespectful to the haka. Do what you like.

    Yeah, I just fast forward through it. Seen one, seen them all.

    Bunch of white blokes pretending to be a bunch of black blokes ... surprised it hasn't been banned.

    Turns out I was wrong.

    Not a drop of Kiwi blood here so maybe i’m missing something in the heritage, but as I see it the Haka is a challenge and something that gets the AB’s fired up, the English players respected it on pitch and in turn got their own motivation from the fans singing and supporting them. Seems like what sport is all about to me, if they’d booed then that would be unacceptable
