Lanfranc BS: Rugby World Cup - Press Release (50) RE: BS: Rugby World Cup - Press Release 20 Oct 07


Alas, by my understanding of the Laws, it wasn't, skipy! Viewed from the rear, it was clear that his left foot went into touch a fraction of a second before the ball touched the ground. Ergo, no try. How a ref could have called that convincingly in the days before video referees, God knows...

It was a Northern Hemisphere vs Southern Hemisphere struggle, and the south won with the better team who made less mistakes! One thing this World Cup has proved is that Argentina deserves to be admitted into the ranks of premier Rugby-playing nations and a place will have to be found for them in another of the international competitions.

Once again, Rugby has proved what an over-hyped, over-paid and ultimately boring game the one played with a round ball has degenerated into! The only things Wilkinson and Beckham have in common is that both are injury-prone and, on a good day, both can perform amazing feats with their feet. However, neither of them is worth the ludicrous sums that the Beckham hype is able to command, as LA is discovering to their cost and chagrin.

Roll on 2011!
