Still feel that Japan will put a few tries away in the second half. Unexpectedly good effort by Russia so far though, if they can go in with a half-time lead that's an impressive effort.

Watching w out sound. What's the ruling there? Looked like he managed a bit of downward pressure on grounding. Not enough control on the way down?

Looks like he lost control just before grounding. Tough call because the ball never lost contact with his hand.

No faking to make the defense rush up. He had been twitching and head faking a little bit

It's against the laws for a scrumhalf to fake pass from the base of a ruck or the back of a scrum

The Russians are just shagged. Heads dropped, and not from the opposition dominating but the pace of the game. Ireland and Scotland should be getting 70+ points on them, and be heading to fifty against Japan if they play as loose as this.
