What was Nigel saying to the Russian halfback then? Something about not dummying?

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

Russian Fullback looks like the Cowboy Cop from every 80s/90s action comedy ever but has he ever played a good game tonight.

Yep, heís been really good.

So has Matsushima! Iíve really liked the Japanese hooker as well, heís been getting through a power of work

Well it was no Battle of Tsushima, Russia played well and I think the Japanese will be a little unhappy.

I was talking about the failed intercept. That's supposed to be an instant card.

I thought it was only for a deliberate knock-down? Like if you seem to have made an attempt at intercept itís not a foul. I could easily be wrong.

Radio New Zealand reporting ABís - Italy, England - France and Japan - Scotland as all very likely to be cancelled.

Hopefully this isnít the case. It doesnít appear change the finishing order in Pools B & C but it really robs us of an exciting clash in Pool A.

arent the two games that were cancelled essentially dead rubbers anyway? The Scotland - Japan game is going ahead, this is the one that has the most on the line.

Nice try Samoa. Looked like a sick neck roll in the lead up and the Samoan jumper in the line-our looked like he was interfered with too.

I canít argue with that as a red. It didnít look malicious but in terms of what cards have been handed out this tournament, it had to be red for consistency.

Nice touch by the Samoan players to give Aki a pat, they clearly saw it wasnít a malicious thing.
