Australia took a quick throw in from pretty much their own try line and buggered it up. That should tell you something.
I don't think Fiji are going to maintain this tempo though.

One of the commentators said it at half time, Australia are getting pulled into playing Fijis game.

Well gently caress. I called it at 60 minutes when Fiji started collapsing and I was ten minutes off

Sure would be nice if we had someone who could kick conversions. Still, Fiji's usual second half capitulation is in full swing now so shouldn't matter.

Nicely worked try there. Australia a bit better when they are not panicking. Weird that.

I miss watching a Fijian bulldoze some private school dickhead on the way to the try line.

I think Fiji win that if Yato and Mata stay on the pitch. Hope Hodge gets cited

Fairly standard Aus v Fiji game in the end. Entertaining first 50ish minutes as Fiji run fast and hit hard while Australia first try to throw the ball around at super speed then forget entirely how to play rugby, followed by 30 mins of Fiji being knackered and infringing as Aus keep ball in hand and march in tries.

Next up is France/Argentina yeah? I want to say the argies should have it, but considering both them and france are teams who play either superbly or like a sackful of rear end in a top hat and nothing in between, I wouldn't put my house on it.

Hugets 'kick pass' to Medard was very French

The France play has been very French so far, but not quite francing it yet. Lots of passes and offloads that come with a shrug, and a general fired up attitude towards moving forward while a relaxed attitude in how to do so.

The scrum reffing seems a bit weird so far. Argentina are getting an early shove on pretty regularly.

Just watching Jaguares getting pumped by super rugby sides certainly makes video analysis on Argentina much easier.

Jaguares were really good this year, its just they're a good Super rugby side which is not the same as a good test side.
