Matthew's week 3 review of RWC

Rugby World Cup 2011 Week 3
We will start with a Pool A game,  Tonga vs. Japan, both with no wins but Tonga want to win more which made their win 31-18.  Poor goal kicking by James Arlidge against Tonga, only got one kick in.
20/09/11 Italy takes on Russia. Italy bought heavy fire power to win 53-12. Great statement to give to the Irish.
22/09/11 the Springboks take on Namibia.  It was an easy game for the Springboks, no offence to Namibia but the result shows my point.   Well done for Bryan Habana to score the most tries for South Africa in all time (not in a singe match)
23/09/11 The USA takes on Wallabies.  The USA rest some big players for the Italian game which made no change in the result 68-5.   The Wallabies have some injures.
24/09/11 England takes on Romania in Otago Stadium. The English Wings both score a Hat Trick. The big game between the mighty All Blacks and France, but for France, it did not go so well. At half time the score was 19-3.  The All Blacks won 37-17. Well done Richie for 100 caps.
25/09/11 Manu Samoa takes on Fiji. Samoa lead at half time 12-0.  Samoa got the win 27-7, bad luck Fiji. Ireland takes on the Russians. Ireland with the win 62-12.  At least Russia scored a try, something the Wallabies could not do against Ireland. Scotland vs. Argentina.  It was an important game for both Argentina and Scotland, the runner up of Pool B would pretty much be decided in this game. Scotland was leading at half time 6-3.  Argentina score the only try which was enough to win 13-12.                             


  1. Hi Matthew - I'm enjoying your summaries of the RWC. I haven't really been a rugby fan before but I've learnt lots over the last few weeks. I'm going to show your summaries to my class today (and your prediction for this weekend) and get some feedback from them - maybe some of my boys will try their hand at writing summaries too.
