Australia v Scotland

WOW

The Wallabies certainly got away with one there. Scotland gave it everything and the Wallabies gave away too many cheap tries, especially from crazy charged-down kicks.

I watched the second half live from about 3am onwards.

I seriously thought we had lost once the scoreline was 32-34.

I don't even know how that penalty was given - that Scotland player must feel so bad for giving away the penalty.

And what about Bernard Foley - Having missed 3 out of 6 kicks from that point (I think, from memory) he had to summon the focus to put that penalty in at around the 79th minute. If he didn't it was game over.

35-34.

Crazy.

And the other crazy thing was that the Scotland fans apparently had been praying for rain - presumably because they play better in that condition. And they got the rain they wanted!! And they actually DID look like they played better in the slippery environment. Wow, some super power they have.

The Wallabies seriously need to improve if they are to have any chance of winning this World Cup.

Scotland can hold their heads up high.
