I saw both those guys on the way in, they got to the area early to neck beers in a convenience store parking lot.

Tonga are just showing slight inexperience, they're turning Genge inside out in the scrum, there are penalties there for them.

I think the big concern for them will be the penalties they were giving away at the breakdown.

Genge is good in the loose, nice passing but his scrummaging is pretty poor. Glasgow absolutely bodied him when they played Leicester a few years ago.

A bit boring for the neutral, England couldíve made it a bigger lead and Tonga never really threatened.

At least we got a couple free beers from the stand nearby! This is the last of two games at the venue so Iím not sure they needed to keep any Heinekens around.

Quick power rankings through the first 7 games

1 New Zealand

2 Ireland

3 South Africa

4 England

5 Australia

6 France

7 Argentina

8 Fiji

9 Japan

10 Italy

11†Scotland

12 Tonga

13 Russia

14 Namibia

Quick Thoughts: South Africa played decent enough against the world champs to stay in the top 3. Ireland look like the best (only?) chance for a Northern Hemisphere Finalist. England, France, Italy all looked sketchy while winning. Scotland is putrid.† The Aussies are thanking the Rugby Gods that the game wasn't 60 minutes instead of 80, and that their high tackle wasn't punished.†

Thought England were fine to be honest, they didn't really get out of third gear and won at a canter with a BP.

Ball-handling must improve if they're going to go far, but they're still ahead of the Aussies and the rest.

(I should have say that Ireland look like the best/only shot for a N Hemisphere finalist SO FAR)

They need to reduce the handling and the penalties. Those are things which are not really related to the opposition. If they play that way against top tier opposition they'll get punished for it. This is more specific but I think England have an issue they don't have 2 top tier front rows, especially in the scrum, that could be an issue in a close game after 60 mins.

bessantj

I thought England's handling and penalties problem was mostly down to them not really going through the gears almost as if the game was a training run. They still seem to have difficulty taking their first half performance into the second half and i think that could see them come a cropper in the knock out games.

If anybody is going to matches ó the RWC has changed their policy, you can now bring in outside food to the stadium. Outside drinks still barred.

https://twitter.com/japan2019_eng/s...957734786662400

Bringing food in is pretty normal for baseball/soccer matches in Japan, and will help stem that whole ďrunning out of food at concessions standsĒ issue they had this weekend.
