He was England’s only shining light in the grim tournament that followed. While they have won 38 and drawn two of their 42 games since the 2011 tournament the fact that so many teams this year, and Ireland in 2013, pushed them so close shows they are not streets ahead of the pack. The mental toughness of those veterans, led by captain Richie McCaw, has been most evident this year as New Zealand won 12 of their 14 games, in some of which where they needed a late burst to put the match away. New Zealand made it in 1982 and then in 2010 but were unable quite to make it out of a group containing Paraguay, Slovakia and Italy. Defeats by New Zealand and South Africa exposed the familiar flaws in the backline but the victory over Australia, on the back of a hugely dominant scrum and the best…

Flyhalf is the only position where the All Blacks are light in their squad, so selectors face a delicate balancing act easing Barrett through the remaining matches. Argentina have endured a turbulent year including lockdowns and a coronavirus-hit build-up to the Tri Nations, where they stunned New Zealand and drew with Australia before going down 38-0 to the All Blacks on Saturday. I have a question, so how can I consult you? He will hope to put more miles in the legs of some of the younger players still finding their feet, including Izack Rodda and fellow lock Lukhan Tui, who can also slot into the back row.

Similarly for Hamilton, if you’re looking to get to NYC on the cheap you may want to fly in on a Tuesday and out on a Thursday – which KAYAK data showed produced the lowest airfare for summer travel to NYC. In between a steady stream of first-half whistles and yellow cards, top-ranked Argentina showed off some of the play that makes them one of the favorites to take home South America’s championship. Sixteen teams will play matches in 10 US cities, and the main event is the championship final in New Jersey at MetLife Stadium. The biggest soccer tournament in the Americas will celebrate its 100th year with a first-ever trip to the United States for what may turn out to be the sporting event of the summer. Headliners this year include Selena Gomez, Paul McCartney, Tim McGraw, and Blink-182. A few minutes later, the five-time Fifa world player…

Matera, who captained Argentina at last year’s World Cup and plays club rugby for top Paris side Stade Francais, apologised for his “barbarisms”. Perth Glory’s teenage wonderkid Daniel Da Silva has made The Guardian’s list of the top 40 youngsters in world football. It will be a sad moment for Umbro, the brand more closely associated with the immortal moments of English football than any other, as Nike prepare to take over kit supply from next month. A senior official at the Argentine Football Federation says the national team decided to cancel its World Cup warmup match with Israel after receiving threats from the Islamic militant group Hamas. The Wallabies – in particular prop James Slipper, who was on the receiving of a brutal hit that was harshly penalised in Perth a fortnight ago – also know full well the damage that Vermeulen can cause. The Western Force star has…

I am delighted to have signed on with the IRFU until at least 2022. Over the past few seasons I’ve enjoyed great days in the green of Ireland and the red of my home province Munster. “Over the past few seasons I’ve enjoyed great days in the green of Ireland and the red of my home province Munster. Ireland’s policy of not selecting overseas-based stars will have contributed to his decision to stay with home province Munster however, and sets him up for next year’s World Cup in Japan. Federal officials have been told that J&J has fallen behind its original production schedule and will not catch up until the end of April, when it was supposed to deliver more than 60 million doses. In a statement, J&J said it believed it would be able to deliver as many doses as promised. Currently, J&J is in the final stage of…

CONS: Steve Hansen, the New Zealand coach always with a twinkle in his eye, might have claimed – mischievously – that the Kiwis are not favourites for this one but really everyone knows they are by miles. Prospects: Scotland are still stinging from their agonising World Cup quarter-final defeat by Australia, who were also narrow 21-15 victors in their last trip to Murrayfield in 2013 and another tight one could be on the cards. His only cover is Peter Horne, who usually plays in the midfield and is also returning to training after hand damage. So rapid has been the team’s descent into mediocrity, they have not scored a try in almost four hours of rugby, having adopted a style of kicking for territory rather than running with ball in hand. The Pro V1 is the No 1 ball in golf and is used by the likes of Ian Poulter…

Hopefully you like Adam Johnson, Jack Colback or Craig Gardner though, because it appears you can’t buy any other players on the Black Cats’ website. Colback and Gardner are reduced to £2 each in the lead-up to Christmas, so grab them while you can. While major North American rivals USA managed to miss out on the finals, Mexico qualified with ease for their 16th World Cup appearance.

Gatland is back in the Wales camp for the start of a 13-Test World Cup countdown after returning to New Zealand last week following the death of his father.

While Cheika never quite reached those heights — his Wallabies teams lost the 2015 World Cup final — he remains the only coach to have won both the European Cup (Leinster in 2009) and Super Rugby (New South Wales Waratahs in 2014). Cheika’s decision to help the Pumas comes as something of a surprise as he had said in May he would feel almost like a “traitor” coaching against one of his former teams. If you’re looking to watch world class soccer this summer, the Copa America promises to be a thrilling tournament, featuring all ten South American national teams. German sportswear manufacturer Adidas seems to have played precisely on this thought in their design of the official uniform that will assist Argentina when competing for the Copa America 2021 and on their way to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The first 2022 World Cup kits will be launched…

The key wins against Australia and France came in contrasting style, evidence of the Pumas’ overall improvement. A narrow defeat by New Zealand and wins over Argentina and Tonga add up to an encouraging autumn series under new coach Vern Cotter. After years of tinkering, manager Philippe Saint-Andre has possibly found a consistent halfback pairing with scrumhalf Sebastien Tillous-Borde and flyhalf Camille Lopez starting all three autumn tests and leading Les Bleus to a victory against Australia. Youthful forward pack inspired by the second-row pairing of brothers Richie and Jonny Gray. Their pack can stand up against the best in the world whom they have rattled with high intensity, aggressive defending. England’s World Cup-winning side of 2003 knew the importance of developing a winning habit and Ireland are doing just that, winning seven on the bounce and showing they can find ways to neutralise teams of the quality of South…
