    2019 Rugby World Cup

    Japan have just gone ahead 16 - 12 against Ireland.

    Japanese side looking real quality.

    And the crowd love it.
    There's too much confusion, I can't get no relief

    Well deserved by the Japanese.

    Ireland poor as well, poor line out, poor in the ruck, too many errors, disappointing in the scrum and braindead in open play.

    Things can only get better

    Group wide open - advantage JAPAN !!
    Hope we get out the group!!

    England slightly lucky against Argentina, who had a red card awarded against them.
    Owen Farrell ducked into a challenge, causing the tackler to catch him a bit high.
    Referee didn't award anything, not even a penalty.
    But the off-field TMO decided a red card against the Argentinian tackler.
    The game was spoiled thanks to it becoming an uneven contest, and England gained a bonus point win.
    England may have won it any way, but the game was spoiled.
    Too much off-field interference. Will football go the same way?

    Some matches cancelled because of a typhoon so they're recorded as 0-0 and carry on... Meaning some teams get an extra weeks rest over their opponents for the quarter finals...

    ...and some teams basically get sent home early denied the chance to qualify for the knockout stages.

    I see Scotland are threatening legal action if their game gets cancelled. I wonder if the men in suits would be so strict with the timing if a scratched game vs Scotland meant Japan being eliminated?

    World rugby confirmed that several of the penalty calls against Ireland v Japan were incorrect calls. Advantage to the home nation in a world cup shocker
    Still should have beaten them.

    Not sure what's happening with Scotland v Japan. If Scotland beat them think we finish top and face south Africa, is it's a draw or Scotland lose we finish second and face New Zealand.
    Not overly confident v either opponent in the knock out stages.

    The northern hopes look like resting on the English and Welsh.
    Englands game v France being cancelled probably welcome by both teams and keeps them fresher for the knockout stages

    Unfair, but those are the rules teams signed up to
