New Zealand 51, Australia 20 in Auckland (Rugby Champ., Bledisloe Cup)
South Africa 33, Argentina 31 in Salta (Rugby Championship)

Rugby is the game they play in heaven. That is a famous saying. Heaven came down to earth last night as New Zealand put on a performance that would have had the All Mighty standing to join a collective ovation at games end. It was simply amazing. New Zealand swept Australia off the park. It was not that Australia played that poorly, it was New Zealand played the game at a number of notches above what they played last weekend. Breathtaking performance!

South Africa were regarded as lucky to get away with the win in Salta. They had to come back from 16-28 to win this one. Argentina were simply magnificent up front and they played with enterprise, speed and some skill. Their encounter with New Zealand in Napier in two weeks time is shaping up to be a cracker.
