This week the #RugbyChat on Twitter concentrated on the Rugby World Cup quarter finals. Here are some of the best bits.
Q1 Let’s celebrate the pool stage, what were your favourite moments, players, games, memories? #RugbyChat #RWC2015
There were plenty of good memories from the pool stages.
Q2 #NZLvFRA can history repeat its self? #NZL are dropping the ball but #FRA didn’t turn up last weekend #RugbyChat it’s Carter v Michalak
Most of us couldn’t see France getting the better of New Zealand. But then again could any of us on those other occasions?
Q3 #RSAvWAL the battle of the walking wounded #RSA look improved #WAL who’s available? could it come down to the better coach? #RugbyChat
There was some backing for Wales but clearly the Boks are favourites.
Q4 #IREvARG the pragmatists v the sparkling backs, but it’s opposite to the stereotypes and which philosophy will take it? #RugbyChat
There was a lot of discussion about who would take this one. Plenty of people think we could have an all Southern Hemisphere lineup in the semifinals.
Q5 #AUSvSCO on #RWC2015 form the easiest QF to call, can #SCO be anything more than a speed bump? #RugbyChat
I don’t think anyone expects Scotland to upset the Wallabies.
Q6 We have to talk about it, the inconsistent judiciary. How can Pocock not get cited when Tuilagi gets 2 weeks? #RugbyChat
There was plenty of anger at the process and also solutions.
Along with plenty of jokes.
Q7 #ITMCup semifinals are the big boys #CAN and #AKL going to make it through or can #TAR and #TAS repeat last years final? #RugbyChat
The ITM cup has clearly taken a backseat this year.
Thank you everybody who joined in and it’s always nice to get positive feedback.
