Great game by Japan. I have sympathy for Scotland, but they deserved to go out after such a dreadful game against Ireland. Wales were very poor, but did enough to get the BP. Some very tasty Quarters with a lot of back story and rivalry to each one. Looks like a New Zealand - England final on the w...

With only 14 as well.


Samoa have been so disappointing. Given a great opportunity here.

Ireland should be definitely qualified, they just have to hope Scotland beat Japan for the easier draw.

The All Blacks versus Italy and England versus France matches have been cancelled because of Typhoon Hagibis, which now has wind gusts of 315km/h (195mph).

Wales aren't exactly crushing it against Fiji.. at all, all square at the moment. We never do against Fiji really... they are usually such a dangerous side and Fiji always seem to relish playing Wales. Was expecting a potential banana skin here especially as Fiji last game of the WC, nothing to los...

The All Blacks will now knock Italy off their perch at the top of Pool B after winning 71-9 against Namibia, including a late try by TJ Perenara that was probably one of the closest and one of the best I've seen. Should have blown for the final whistle after 4 minutes for the Namibia win! But that ...

Italy have been incredibly stupid. Honestly trying hard to find a more reckless decision than that. Already won the pen, 5 m from the line having just wrestled back momentum. Very lucky they both didn't see red. That's after countless other high tackles they'd done right the way through the game and...

Honestly thought we had blown it.

Australia very very lucky not to have had 2 sent off. Not even yellow for one of the cheapest shots I've seen since the last Australian game.

All I can say is:

Yesssssssssssss!!!!!!

Well, that was a bit of a surprise. Anyway, you know what really pisses me off right now? Italy is at the RWC and not only the state broadcaster fails to show any match: newspapers (even sports newspapers) relegated the Italian victories against Namibia and Canada to a remote corner of the inner pa...

Not even sure Ireland even deserved the losing BP, they were completely out-muscled and out thought by Japan. Very lucky it was only one score in it!

Great showing from them in the second half so far as well.

Italy have thumped Canada 48-7 and England are currently holding the USA scoreless, but not that far ahead. England are up only 19-0 at the beginning of the second half. Really not where I'd expect England to be given Italy, not really considered as competitive as England, were only up 17-0 against...

Big oof for Fiji, suffering their first ever loss to Uruguay 27-30 with the final conversion bouncing off the left post. Uruguay looked like they played a good game so congrats to them. I wonder why it's so hard to translate 7's form into Union. Essentially Fiji should have wonderful backs, and I d...

I don't see why the six nations can't include Georgia. If it were solely a rugby question, you'd be absolutely right. Unfortunately, it isn't. The Six Nations is a private organisation run by Six Nations Rugby Ltd. Organisationally and administratively it has nothing to do with Worl...

Georgia are showing in this second half why they deserve more chances against Tier 1 nations. I'm typing this with about 6-7 minutes left in the match, and Georgia are currently winning the second half 14-7. Now, they did have a dismal opening spell, with Wales 22-0 up after 22 minutes; which is wh...

I think this should be added to the OP. Always a great song as long as we forget the Paloma Faith version.... It says video unavailable but from the song title I do have to ask: is it as shite as I think it will be? I can add a more suitable song to the OP.. No its pretty good. It's the rugby tune....

<Sigh> I wasn't necessarily expecting Scotland to beat Ireland, but I was at least hoping they could show a bit more of a competitive spark. Now I'm not sure we'll even get out of the group so we can enjoy our traditional ceremonial thrashing at the hands of the All Blacks. I think I'll just spend ...

So far so according to general predictions really, Italy plonked Uruguay Namibia and Ireland have handily beaten Scotland, it's up to England to defy the odds and lose to Tonga.. something they're well capable of doing but I worry that this RWC will essentially just go to form. Namibia instead of U...

Was following the Russia Japan match via bbc sport yesterday in work as i was surprised it was not being covered at all on any of the screens. Well done Japan after a bit of a rough start.

Was really impressed by Russia. Japan did enough with a very nervy start, but still looked unconvincing. I think Japan will struggle against Scotland based on that, and on paper Scotland really should come through this group. Can't look past New Zealand for the tournament. However, I wouldn't be sur...

I think it's ridiculous the enormous cash that floats around the PL doesn't make it down the leagues and smaller clubs struggle to make it every season. On this, it absolutely is. Danny Ward was sold by Liverpool to Leicester for a reported 12.5 million. Wrexham had a 10% sell on fee so are due 1.2...
