Some plus points.

Wales:  About two good players short of competing with 3N sides.
England:  A few hard games on a regular basis and a back coach short of
competing with 3N sides.
Argentina:  Showed they can compete - would have liked to see them play a 3N
side.
Scotland:  Should have played forty minutes out the back before they ran
onto the field.  Showed they can definitely match it.

Yup - Stephen Larkham and George Gregan

Yep, Wayne Smith is an excellent backs coach.

They will soon enough, they are coming ahead in leaps and bounds.

I was impressed with Scotland's pick and drive, shame they had to eventually
pass it out to the backs.
