Was he bursting to get back inside for a piss or something? Why the gently caress would you kick it out when you are behind and that close to full time?

At that point they couldn't win, so they could only get one extra point from the draw.

... Or he didn't look at the clock.

Great win Japan, and some really smart tactics playing to their strengths.

But wtf to Carrberry just booting it out?

poo poo attitude from the whole team in general. Referee wasn’t kind but nobody in green came close to even wanting to win this game.

Surprised how one sided that game was after Ireland scored their second try. It was about 50 minutes of Japanese offense apart from the desperate Irish attack 5 minutes from the end.

loving hell - well worth finding the one place in Madrid to watch that game. So impressed by the Japanese right now. Also pretty damning for the Irish - all the issues from earlier this year right back on the pitch. Out in the quarters again!

It's wild. Ireland scored on what, the 21st minute? Then not again for the whole game.

If Ireland remain 2nd, they face the All Blacks in the quarters, and they'd probably be in a bit of a point-proving mood, I imagine.

Is this being broadcast somewhere in Germany? I'm having to use a VPN to get ITV, but it's sometimes pretty unreliable.

Japan were class, Ireland not scoring in an hour of rugby is shocking from them.
Boks are scoring when they want to here, I think the ref didn't want to card that Namibian guy he kniws what way this is going.

Depends what happens with Scotland and Ireland games against Russia and Samoa but Ireland should be safe even if Scotland beat Japan.

I saw Namibia play Australia in 2003 WC. Didn't plan on going, but my dad assured me Namibia were not too bad. Perhaps on the level of a Springbok B side. Trusting his superior rugby knowledge I bought tickets and went along, only to spend 80 minutes watching Namibia kick-off, Aus casually stroll down to score under the posts, convert, reset. Not sure there was a contested ball all game, in the air or the ruck. 140 odd to nil I seem to remember.

At least there hasn't been anything like that this time around. Actually I have been suprised at the standard played by some of the lower ranked teams. Seems to be a quality and fitness you didn't often see from these 10-15 years ago.

Also my dad is a bastard sometimes, and thought it was funny as hell.

Thinking back, this might have been the game I remember watching in high school where they said the opponent scrum pack was on roller skates
