I think all of New Zealand were supporting Ireland in that game, they showed they're a capable team of doing big things, all the best to Ireland for the rest of the cup!

imo, Ireland and Wales are far too often underestimated.

All Blacks get a good win v France, England handle Romania with ease, Samoa with a lackluster win V Fiji, Ireland get past Russia easily and now Scotland are in a tight match v Argentina. As I speak Scotland have just bombed a try.

And duly lost, really I think its time the rest of us start take argentine rugby a bit more seriously. They always seem to get into the quarter finals.

Pump a bit more money into the game over their, get an argentine side into the Super 15, and they could end up with a team good enough to challenge the best.

Defiantly need to have a team in the Super 15, on another note, it's so frustrating to watch the US not give the ball to Ngwenya more, when you have the fastest player in world rugby on your wing, you've got to use him more.

Yeh we are underestimated for sure, we do have a strong team but with our pre cup games it looked as though we were going to not show up for the WC. Luckily we did
