Rugby: Samoa stuns Wallabies

Samoa are a world class rugby team and while the Wallabies are either the second  or third best team in world rugby behind the All Blacks but either in front or behind the South Africans, they are the only team to win two world cups ( remember  Samoa has made the 1/4 finals before ) so today's result was not so much astonishing but more inevitable. Australia coached by Kiwi Robbie Deans got arrogant.

" The committed Samoan tackling was also unsettling the Australian ballrunners, with center Seilala Mapusua directing the midfield defense and Tuilagi smashing Mark Gerrard with a perfectly timed hit in the 33rd to shut down a scoring chance.
After turning down the chance for three penalty goals within easy kicking range, Giteau took a shot from 45-meters in the 25th minute and it was waved away."

That is just poor decision making. The Rugby World Cup just  got more interesting.
