I hate the All Blacks and they definitely get freebies, but I don't see how this is applicable here. Enjoy Jim Watt (before he dies) and Andy Murray.

Be honest. This is a sporting disgrace for Scotland. Move the date, venue whatever. Solutions are simple in this case but the authorities seem ambivalent. Which is fucking curious.

So, who will win the tournament? I think it will be an England v SA final with SA the winners.

We made sure everything was done to ensure the game went ahead. Every country would do the same.

Whatever the weather, our A game was always going to be required here

So it couldn't possibly happen that for example the AB's had a player sent off in the first minute followed by a couple of crucial injuries?

If they were playing Russia, Georgia or the USA then maybe you'd have a point but Italy are a tier one nation. Same as South Africa are tier one.

And what happened to SA at the last world cup against a tier two team??

Japan are absolutely brilliant, when they were playing us I kept waiting for them to tire or make mistakes but they didnít. They seem to be going the same way tonight but only 7 points up. I wonder would nerves get to them

Everyone is struggling to deal with their pace and how direct they are, they are fantastic to watch. Guess it's NZ for us.

Quarter finals for us again Dan, I suspect we will go out in a blaze of glory and have a cut off NZ but lose by around 10 points

It would have been shit had the game not been played. Not just for the integrity of the tournament, but fuck me what a match we'd have missed out on.

Great game of rugby from both sides but after all the bitching and moaning Iíve heard about it all Iím very happy to see this result and tbh Japan were the better side over the 80 minutes.

In all honesty and zero patronizing.....how good have Japan been. I knew they could play off the cuff rugby and had great spirit etc but their scrummaging, lines of running, accuracy and physicality have amazed me.

They deserved to win vs us and Scotland and getting the Sunwolves into super rugby has done wonders for their consistency. Fair play to them

Breath of fresh air tbh in this tournament. They’ve played great rugby and having a side that’s not one of the old guard breaking through is good for the sport.

They were. Thoroughly deserved it and nobody can point any fingers this way.

Sounds like a great match and we left ourselves with too much to do.

The best team won, and we can have no complaints. Better to go out playing Rugby than watching weather forecasts. Better for Japan going through with a win than a weather assist. I reckon they will take some stopping now.

For us? Some soul searching. From building up some momentum we've had a shite 12 months. From where we were under Vern to where we are now feels like a backwards step. Townsend must have a decent 6Nd or he is done for.

The end of an era for some stalwarts like Laidlaw and Barclay, but some exciting players coming through like George Horne, Sam Skinner and Jamie Ritchie.

Onwards and upwards.

Ritchie was very good today and Scotland are reaping the rewards of creating an academy on the English Riviera to pick up the likes of Sam Skinner

Brilliant though Japan were, they played the way they always play - good running lines, good hands, players in close support - but Scotland didn't seem to have a plan to try and cope with it even though they knew it was coming.

And they didn't seem to have much of a plan in attack either. I can't recall a game at any level where 40 minutes elapses between visits to the opponents 22.

I thought Townsend might be the coach best suited to Scotland's intention to play expansive Rugby but you're right that they've actually gone backwards.

Maybe the advent of the Super 6 will give Scottish rugby a shot in the arm in terms of the player (and coach) development pathway which will pay dividends further up the food chain?

Really good, been great for the tournament. Well, the Sunwolves have been booted out, maybe things will look premature based on this tournaments performance.

Will be an interesting game, but think our forwards will batter them too much and the intensity of the game will get to them at the end, they seemed to struggle a bit with the physicality in the 2nd half, hopefully the Boks will exploit that. But it's a million miles away from the foregone conclusion it may seem on paper. Comprehensively beating Scotland and Ireland is an impressive feat.

it's a poxy draw but I suppose you have to play the best at some point. We haven't been at our best but I do think we were struggling with the humidity.. that has died down thank christ so the lads seem a bit more energised. Sexton fit is absolutely vital but NZ are a beast.. hardest possible draw unfortunately but should be some game that I don't see us winning... ya never know though.

We both lost by 7 points - not that comprehensive. The conditions also did for us with it being in an indoors sweat box with >80% humidity.

The Boks will beat them up physically but their lines of running will cause you problems. Their offloading game is also top notch
