They just can't cross the line.

Both teams look knackered. I suspect there is nothing on display to trouble the AB's.

Try Aussie - game over.

Forward pass on that try - should have gone TMO.

They break the line and offload so well but just can't put it together where it matters.

Aussies are fantastic at the breakdown.

Interesting to see the Aussie scrum on the back foot in the last 2 games, costing them a lot of points. Particularly after they dominated England.

Can't really see anything other than an AB win next week, but I suppose the familiarity between the teams throws a slightly different spin on the game.

Nine News are reporting in Australia that Sam Burgess wants to return to Rugby League. They say Burgess is in "top level negotiations" about a return to his former club, the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

Burgess, who watched his former Rugby League team-mates England beat France 84-4 at the weekend, received widespread criticism during England's poor World Cup performance, having switched codes to join Bath last year.

Seen 150 tickets on for 200 but they generally appear to be coming down.

3rd place tickets for 80

That rumour's been around for a while. Obviously doesn't mean it won't happen but he's consistently denied it. I suppose if they offer him (and Bath) enough money then anything's possible. On the flip side, he doesn't strike me as the sort of bloke who wants to be known as a quitter.

Ireland and Ulster winger Tommy Bowe is facing six months on the sidelines after he underwent surgery to repair the knee injury he sustained during Ireland’s Rugby World Cup quarter-final defeat to Argentina.

Bowe was stretchered off during the first half of Ireland’s 43-20 loss in Cardiff, and it was revealed he had suffered posterior cruciate ligament and meniscal injuries to his right knee.
And now his province have confirmed the 31-year-old will now miss next year’s Six Nations campaign after going under the knife on Monday.

I watched Rugby Tonight, on BT Sport, last night. They had Jonah Lomu on as a guest.
Amidst all the banter, they got him to recreate and talk through his demolition of England in 1995. As he went through each tackle, the level of detail he gave about each tiny movement that he made showed what an amazing amount of skill he had. One example is that he told how, after Will Carling sent him off balance and he was hammering towards Mike Catt. Just before the contact, he watched Catt's body position and moved his own so that he could plant his forward foot deliberately short of his normal stride length to give himself extra power in the contact. It wasn't instinctive, or something he did at every tackle. It was his skill level at being able to work out, at speed, the best way to get through that tackle.
Really opened my eyes and reminded me that he wasn't just a big bloke with the ball, he had skill and speed of thought to match.

I just saw David Denton in the cafe where I live.

He looked very young.

According to my homepage on the fantasy rugby game I was joint 505th in the whole world for the second semi final game day points. Not sure how accurate that is as I am apparently tied with, and in some instances ranked below, people who scored fewer points.

ITV Try of the Tournie poll - any opinions?

vd Merwe for Canada for me. Followed closely by Savea for the sheer strength to plough through them.

Awful second half. Stuck with it out of stubborness more than anything.

Final 3 transfers made in Fantasy League. Hoping I am still top of the pile in a few hours. Watching it in work though. Having to come in early and leave late with a very late lunch so I can watch it all
