The game was quite OK, the only thing that sucks is that my least favourite team from northern hemisphere (Six Nations only) won. And the decisive (to the final score) six points were conceded while having one player more  :(
It was strange because England had lost their way but losing a player seemed to give them focus and force them to play the way they needed to to win: controlled, patient, mistake-free, territorial rugby; much like they played in the first half.

The intensity was something else though, with both sides playing as if one defensive lapse would settle the match. One reason why the NH teams always do surprisingly well in World Cups; they're more used to playing at that level of intensity.
