Namibians end RWC

Game #37 at Leicester City Stadium

Argentina 64 - Namibia 19

Nine tries, many with multiple offloads for Los Pumas. But at the end, it was an offload to Namibian Eugene Jantjies who dived in for the end of match try. Then, the conversion was handed to retiring prop Johnny Redelinghuys whose feeble dribble at the posts brought cheers from the crowd. (See teammates congratulating him in photo.)

Game #38 at Sandy Park

Italy 32- Romania 22

The hoped for three RWC victories eluded the Azzurri, who had to settle for a 2-2 result and third place in the Pool. But they booked a trip to Japan for 2019.

Game #39 at Millennium Stadium

Ireland 24 - France 9

A must and decisive win for the Irish who lost Johnny Sexton to injuries, and also lost two other key players. Ireland finish atop Pool D and will meet Argentina next week. Can France recover from a poor showing to compete with the All Blacks next week?
