83-7. I'll take it.
i was really hoping for triple digits as well... pretty happy for japans try though, that was awesome. especially everybody cheering at that point, great to see
i'm not happy at all with the france-canada game of earlier today/yesterday. good effort from canada at the start, didn't look too bad. at the end though, they simply gave up after what i thought were a few strange decisions by the ref at the start of the second half.
Judging by some of the media hysteria, you'd think we've been knocked out already, though it was definitely most dissapointing for us on Saturday night. An over-confident Wallabies outfit coming up against a tough Irish side with something to prove. Credit to them, they were much better on the night and deserved to win. The other disappointment to come out of the result for me personally, aside from another inconsistent, error-riddled and generally lack-lustre Wallaby performance, was that the anticipated Australia vs New Zealand final, is now unlikely to happen. I dare say the Boks aren't too happy about Ireland's win either .
The result of the Ireland vs Italy match next Sunday week now has huge ramifications. Should the Azzuri manage to stage an upset, Ireland may be found wishing they put the USA to the sword in their first match. However if the Pool maintains the status quo, Ireland have put themselves in a magnificent position to make at least the semi-finals. And who says the pool stages aren't interesting!
thankfully for me, I could choose to watch the replay of the Broncos win instead of the Australia v Ireland replay
Friendly reminder to anyone still watching this tournament: New Zealand changes their clocks forward for DST on Sunday morning, so will become UTC+13 instead of UTC+12. Keep your time conversions up to date when figuring out when a match starts in your time.
England Vs. Romania at 6am GMT Saturday on ITV.
A team of first graders would have served as a more effective defensive outfit than the USA team tonight.
nice first half from the all blacks there. france started off with good pressure, but i felt after some 10min nothing of that was left and they were just being overrun. those 3 tries in rather quick succession seem to have demoralized them a lot. could have been a fourth or even a fifth (but i dont want to be greedy), if the all blacks hadn't given them away as easily, but that's just nitpicking in the end. i hope they can keep up the good work in the second half.
Argentina 13-12 Scotland.
Match. Of. The. Tournament.
