Watching the draw for the rugby world cup 2019 - what an arse ways way of doing the draw. first the pull the pool that Japan will be in . then the pull the play off places for all the pools.
Edit - ohh, not bad for us Ireland, scotland, japan and two lower tier teams yet to be decided.
That's the best draw we've got in a long time.

would have been a much better game if the lions got a try in those opening few minutes of the 2nd half. they haven't been great since. that and NZ have bullied them around the pitch, giving them no possession.

You really have to play the perfect game to beat this team. Any silly mistakes and they make you pay. Every half chance has to be taken.

Thought Davies and Te'o were excellent. Farrell didn't look match sharp although I'd still have him over Sexton next week. Warburton shouldn't be anywhere near the test team. Would bring Lawes and Itoje in next week as well.
