England just defeated Australia, knocking them out of the World Cup tournament. Australia was up 10 to 6 at half time, but apparently England’s fly-half is an excellent kicker (kicking 4 goals (3 pts. each) during the match) and Australia ultimately lost 10 to 12.
What happened to my Wallabies?!?!! My team has been eliminated. How could this happen? Why, Australia? Why? You let England defeat you…you were supposed to win to pay England back for beating you in the 2003 Final.
I now place all my hopes on Argentina. Tomorrow they play Scotland.
Wow. Just wow. This was not expected.
UPDATE: And France has ousted New Zealand. This is historic, people. Historic. New Zealand was one of the favorites in the tournament. So now England and France will meet in the Semi-finals next weekend.
Again, wow. Really really not expected. This Rugby World Cup has taken some very interesting turns.
