Watching Japan gently caress up the SA scrum is great.

Japan, beating the saffa scrum. Offloading like bastards, running every goddamn line. Bloody hell

I am going to enjoy the All Blacks v Japan final however.

If all Japan's forward passes were called up they'd be looking a little less impressive.

Got to admire how Japan take territory with phase play rather than just booting up the field.

De Klerk is going to pick up a yellow at some point for persistent infringement, or would if Barnes did offsides

If they’re always offside your passes have to be forward and if the passes are always forward you have to be offside

House rules for this game is that Dr Klerk is allowed to be offside and Japan are allowed to throw every third pass forward.

SA need to slow poo poo down when they get possession. These no look flick passes off the turnover are a liability and are playing into Japans game.

Saffer forwards are monsters on defence, every time they make a tackle they're pushing Japan back a metre or two it feels like

IT CAN'T BE BARGAINED WITH.
IT CAN'T BE REASONED WITH.
IT DOESN'T FEEL PITY, OR REMORSE, OR FEAR.
AND IT ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT STOP, EVER, UNTIL YOU ADMIT YOU'RE WRONG ABOUT WARHAMMER


Clapping Larry

If I was Japanese I'd be really happy if the first half ended 5-3 to South Africa.

SA are never going to concede lots of tries against Japan, so the closer the score is and the less time left on the game the more chance for some crazy silky smooth Japanese break that just puts them over the line.

Japan are getting belted behind the advantage line every single play. They're doing well to still be in this

If he'd passed half a second earlier instead of holding on then panicking that would have been a try.

It's not a great outcome. The possession and territory alone should have won them 9 points by now.

Some really cynical play from South Africa today

Edit: is it legal to obstruct a kick challenge like that?
