Pleasing end to the first half. Wales doing some good stuff with the ball and even spoiling some line outs which I don't think they've done since the 70s.

I had a video of that when I was about 6.

I remember it being shit.

A bit difficult to assess Wales' performance on attack really. What can you judge about them given that defense?

Their own defensive line seems solid at least, they're not getting murdered by the pack.

Well Davies kicking could be better but other than that it's been decent enough even with the low quality defence.

Bit harsh on Georgia, when he gave them a pen for Wales collapsing the maul Wales got no YC.

I'm pleased to see the hairdryer works just as well in Georgian.

Also please that there somehow haven't been any injuries, I was expected a bloodbath.

Yep, we apparently decided to do things the hardest possible way this half. Great thinking from Georgia on that last try.

It is a record win for Wales over Georgia and New Zealand beat them 43-10 in the last world cup so not a bad result.

I like monkeys

Just finished watching the Wales-Georgia game and most of the Ireland-Scotland game (couldn't watch live as my son decided to to wait for the world cup to start before he could be born).
Wales looked good to start, but liked like they got sloppy after the first 20 minutes.
I didn't watch my adopted country England's game, but sounded like it went as expected.

No, nothing happened everyone just played on.

Good try by Samoa. Russia are going to suffer from having played Japan four days ago.

Russia are not doing too badly. I think fitness will tell second half because they've already played a game but the Yellow should give them an opportunity to go into half time int he lead.

They may have a bigger opportunity here. These Samoans are nuts.

I mean he shrugged off the first one and the tackler knocked himself out on the second one. Maybe that's Russia's tactic, wait for Samoa to break themselves on the rock that is Artemyev's skull.

Maybe it has something to do with his time in Ireland.

Russia with a 2 man advantage at their 9 is kicking

How can you give a yellow for not wrapping when the reason for not wrapping is the tackler unintentionally rendered himself unconscious.

The wrapping should have occurred, or at least attempted, before unconsciousness. They should just add that to the guidelines.
