Soaked Scotland sock it to Australia
What did you think of Scotland's win over Australia, then? I was impressed. A victory over the number two side in the world.
My favourite tweet read something like: "Skippy, Madge Bishop, Hugh Jackman, the barman in the pub, your boys took a hell of a beating!"
Well done to the Scotland team, it's great to be part of history.
A few things caught my eye in the build-up and then during the game.
The first was the disrespect shown to the Scotland team. Our "little" team was given second-rate status by playing the game midweek and in a far-flung location.
The Scotland team won't say anything, but that will have played a part.

And then there were the conditions. The rain teemed down and, even when playing with the wind in the second half, the Aussies seemed incapable of sticking the ball down the pitch and playing for position with any conviction.
But what about Scotland? That was as good a line-out performance as the wily fox Al Kellock will have been part of in some time, and Ryan Grant at loose-head shored up his side of the scrum to great effect on his first cap.
More than that, there was obvious intent. Very early on the lighter Scottish tried to demonstrate that they weren't going to be out-muscled.
There were rolling mauls, a one-pass hit-up game that sat happily with the conditions, little kicks over the top, and a defensive effort that was better than most we had seen in the Six Nations.
The Aussies must have thought that their continual pounding would produce a score, but it didn't. Scotland kept in the game thanks to their simplicity and technique.
Ross Rennie is a one-man perpetual motion machine.
I like the way Scottish players pushed and shoved the Aussies when things slowed down, and the rucking technique was good, with players making ground supported by others and in a driving position.
I also liked the fact that Andy Robinson didn't substitute his players by rote.
Fans may hate them, but scrums are the most important tool in beating a team. A pack that was going well was kept together for the duration, and when Chris Cusiter was brought on his guile helped attract the penalty for Scotland at the end of the game.
I heard someone near me shout "kick for touch" as the game crept into extra time - but the game has always been there for the taking.
Oh, how good it would be to have this kind of performance in the Six Nations.
Yes, it was a predominantly defensive performance, given the relative tackle statistics (the Scots made about three times as many), but it was a win.
And it was aptly summed up by Al Strokosch accidentally head-butting Joe Ansbro on the final whistle.
Two supposedly easier games now face the Scots. New caps like Tom Brown, Matt Scott and Ryan Grant have invaluable experience in their memory banks.
But Fiji and Samoa will be tough in very probably much hotter and drier conditions.
What's that, Skippy? There's been a terrible accident? You bet there has.
