Not really. I couldn't care less who wins. Rugger's not my game at all. I just enjoy watching the Pacific Islanders belt the living snot out of white guys.

But...his arms clearly try to grab the big Fijian as he's bouncing off of him. He's just sent flying with such force that he's got absolutely no chance of holding on. That dude is absolutely massive

The England match was a fairly tedious watch - might not have been if they hadn't dropped the ball 13 times; often in good situations - but fair play to the Tongans for slugging it out and slowing the game down.

On the plus side Manu looked sharp and the back row lads were outstanding.

The Argies will give England a good match but I can't see them winning it. Looks like they had their chance versus France and blew it. All the other groups are on track to meet predictions. Other than England vs France and Wales vs Australia to sort out first and second spot in those groups, it's a matter of getting guys fit and avoiding injuries ahead of the quarter finals and the proper start of the tournament.

France, Argentina and England was the one- I thought the Argies would win in a tight game. I forgot that historically France always go well in the WC although they scrambled over the line

England didn't play well, but showed glimpses. First game though so a pretty standard win after a full on opening 20 from Tonga.

The tournament has gone to form more or less as predicted.

Easily the biggest disappointment in the tournament so far is Scotland. We were abject, the only team to walk away with zero credit after the first matches. I was slightly worried by our body language pre match and that played out. Ireland delivered about as comprehensive a defeat as you will see between tier one nations. Hamish Watson out for the tournament also. He and Sam Skinner will be a big miss.

It can only get better, but I now worry about us v Japan. Some of the old campaigners (Barclay, Wilson, Laidlaw, Seymour) have it all to prove.

Means we might see a bit of George Horne who is a real prospect, but not ready for elite level World Cup matches.

Folau is apparently going to play rugby league for Tonga next month. Knew he'd be back playing something at some point soon, Jesus that's the bottom of the barrel. Representing a small country in a shit sport. No doubt he'll be playing union in Europe within a few years for millions.

Your lot v Japan is pretty much the last fixture isn't it?

I reckon it could be a cracker with (potentially) loads to play for and 2 teams who like a quick game.

Should be a really good spectacle - for the neutral

Converted Try Japan - they are up 16/12.

20 mins left and right now they are smashing us - we can’t live with their pace and directness. The heat a factor, our guys out on their feet.

Massive shock incoming

Chris we were happy with a losing bonus point - we would have needed to go the length of the field to get a draw which is only one point more. We had scrum half’s in the wing, wingers at full back and centre so we would have had no shape. It was the right thing to do! We beat Scotland with a bonus point so we have that in the bag.

Where we lost that game was by kicking the ball long to them and letting them run back at us. They were superb but we played right into their hands.

Throws the group wide open

Both a brilliant and a terrifying result for us. If we didn’t already know zero complacency allowed.

Definitely. We played them away a few years ago, but this will be the biggest game they’ve ever played.

The ‘only’ thing for us, is we’ve already had a shit performance. We know we can’t be complacent.

But yeah, I’m concerned.

What time is the game locally? Reading about how many kgs our players lost and 70% humidity - not Irish weather

HT Australia 8 - 23 Wales

Hooper should have been binned as well. Agreed with the Kerevi call though - what a beast he is btw. Another corker of a game to watch this one.

Brilliant second half from Australia. We looked dead on our feet for a while there, had to dig seriously deep to get the win. Great game of rugby.

It was. Pity about the refereeing though. He had an absolute shocker.

Normally it's nailed on that Poitre and (the other french dude) Garces will make one or two very odd calls during the course of a game but from what I saw - about 2/3 of the match - he got most things right today.

Did you see the Irish game - hard to be neutral when your team is playing but I thought Angus Gardner had a shocker. Very harsh on us in the breakdown and on one scrum in particular

I was looking forward to it already, but even more now.

However, I was hoping for a really open game and I'm a bit doubtful Scotland are going to want to play like that having seen what happened to Ireland.

It's tricky though - do they change to a totally alien game plan - because there's probably quite a lot of danger in trying to do that.

I have no idea where the match is being played? Somewhere chilly I hope for your sake

Having watched England get loads of opportunities (especially v Tonga) and waste them by constantly dropping the ball or stuttering because there was confusion about where the ball was going and who the runner etc would be, the thing that struck me most about Japan was the incredible handling and phase continuity.

Even the forwards were catching the ball off their laces.

And if you have people constantly running on to the ball and who know where the supporting players are coming from it makes the game very simple.

Much, much, much, much, much better from us.

Understandable nervy start, but we've been pretty much perfect since.

27-0 with 20 to go. One try away from the bonus point. The discipline and defence have been great where as last week it was non existent.

Samoan discipline is absolutely horrendous. There are so many poor tackles that they aren't even all being picked up.

2 footed sliding tackle just then

Bonus point

Ireland 'only' 28-0 up after an hr versus Russia. We look skocking, handling errors all over the shop and poor decisions.

We look a shadow of the team that beat Scotland. I'm not sure why the roof has to be closed because the conditions make the ball like a bar of soap
