I don;t think you should use any word with 'try' in it around the Scottish at the moment.

I'm hoping the Tongan 21 gets on so the commentators have to say his name.

Ireland were just very good, shut down anything Scotland tried. I think Scotland improved as the game went on but just not accurate enough.

The Sipi Tau looks like it's 23 giant human beings telling you that you're a oval office.

And as they're playing England, they're right.

Hmmm I don't see how the ref saw a grounding there, at last not before he blew his whistle and therefore stopped play.

How in gods name did the ref apparently see grounding on that one? Was it just a "well, surely they got down" or did I seriously miss something on the various TMO replays?

He "saw it on the ground" 5-10 seconds after he blew the whistle.

TMO and ref get that right. The ITV commentary get it all wrong, "He could be in trouble here," and talking about how he dropped so there's mitigating circumstance, "It's on his neck so this might be a problem." Then the ref says, "Across the chest, no foul play for me." And suddenly the ITV commentators are all in agreement.

Other than the try down the wing, England have looked a bit ordinary. Tonga are playing really well and closing down a lot of space quickly. This is a surprisingly good game.

By enforcer, did the commentator mean "penalty machine" when talking about Genge?
