Heart-stopping weekend

What an incredible, terrifying, heart-stopping rugby weekend it has been! The Quarter-finals of the RWC2011 have been just how I expected them: maybe not always “spectacular” in its strict meaning but absolutely exciting.

I’m not going to analyse every single game, because, by now you’ll find plenty of articles and blog posts about it. I just want to fix those moments with some eloquent photos….
