10 tries

Not sure what they were saying on TV but my understanding is both disallowed tries should have stood. 

 

Ref got these wrong. Ball was thrown backwards. Ending up forwards isn't wrong. 

 

Another game being cheated.

Horne's was a good pass but I can see why it was given forwards. Bradbury was tackled when releasing so it didn't appear that his hands went backwards when making the pass. 

 

Hastings was overrunning the pass all the way. He had plenty of time to cool his jets and remove all doubt. However, the pass itself, leaving the hands, appeared to have been released backwards, with only momentum taking it forwards. It doesn't help that it was released on one side of the 22 line and then caught on the other, even though Hastings was reaching behind himself to catch it. 

 

Very nervous for Sunday. I don't think I can watch.

Wales should stick a 20+ point margin win on Fiji here.

 

Annoyingly.

Everyone will be a little worried about the weather. Wales heading towards winning group and playing France but a cancellation at weekend changes that.

I'm being dense here, as I'm not very well today  and not looked at the table. How, sorry?

 

Last I checked, England were 2 points ahead of France with 3 BP's to their 1.

 

Genuinely asking here. Brain's fried.

So if game not played, although contingencies apparently being looked at if need be, both teams get 2 points and England will remain top and likely to play Australia, with Wales v. France.

England/ France play Australia/ Wales in Quarters. Winner plays runner-up.

 

Looking like Wales v France and Australia v England.

 

Assuming Wales and England win remaining matches. Wales have 2 games to play.

Wales making a bit of a meal of it. 

 

2 yellow cards each so far and a penalty try against Wales 'cos the ref's got pi55ed off with their niggling infringements.

"It's going to be atrocious on Saturday'

Simon King

BBC weather presenter and meteorologist

It's bad. It's one of the most powerful typhoons of the year. It's in the western Pacific and a violent typhoon at the minute. Sustained wind speeds of up to 120mph gusting up to 170mph.

It actually strengthened a little bit first thing this morning.

Japan is used to typhoons hitting at this time of year but this one will be quite remarkable because even though it is going to weaken it will still be classed as a very strong typhoon as it makes landfall.

We are expecting that to be around the Tokyo area, probably late evening on Saturday, that will coincide with the England v France match with strong winds and flooding rains.

It's going to be an atrocious day on Saturday and I can't imagine the authorities would want anyone traveling in those conditions.

The typhoon will clear away on Sunday - what happens to the Scotland v Japan game may depend on how much damage and rainfall there was on Saturday."

Find it grimly humorous that it may well happen.

You couldn't make it up.

Playing a tournament during typhoon season, and no contingency for cancelled games.

Sure the SFA aren't organizing it?

As I said to Shaun(whose apologies were much appreciated by the way) to make supporters/teams/anyone, travel in severe conditions, getting on now last minute, is unrealistic & unsafe. It costs too much money for the average punter who's paid thousands to be out there, to travel hundreds of kms & add food & accommodation to that. Those fans now look like being short-changed. But lives are more important obviously.

 

They could play it the next day, maybe two days later, meaning an obvious shorter turn-around. But, the local infrastructure around Japan may be damaged. You can't be expected to travel through floods etc. It's just a game at the end of the day.

 

Japan being given a bye in all but name, may not sit well with Scotland fans. But the wider media, public & most importantly, the IRB, will love it. A PR dream come true.

 

We'll see what they say. But I'm not holding out much hope of a positive solution.

Could only happen to us.

Must be built into our sporting DNA.

Still question what the decision would be if the roles were reversed?

No point wondering and moaning about it. The powers that be will have to sort that with their consciences on Thursday.

 

I suspect they may be slightly eased, if Japan do get a bye, by the millions of dollars of TV & merchandise revenue they'll earn still, by virtue of the Japanese still being in the tournament.

 

A cynic might say.

Well, they can't play in Yokohama for a start, as that's where Scotland v Japan is to be played. Then you're talking hundred of miles relocation possibly...if these are on, I'll be shocked.

If they cancel either of them, surely it'll be England-France because both sides are already through? While moving Japan-Scotland to Monday?

 

This is the kind of comment a 6-year-old would make... but whenever I see the words Typhoon Hagibis, I keep reading it as Typhoon Haggis. 

 

Oh, and apologies to Barack and Jonno.

Decision on Scotland game deferred.

 

But they have cancelled Italy v New Zealand (knocking Italy out) and England v France.

 

So they are prepared to put Japan in Quarters. No games moved. Just cancelled.
