Townsend's so non-committal on the team that it'd be better to just have him say Scotland are loving awful, even to just give them some motivation to prove them wrong.

Other than the try down the wing, England have looked a bit ordinary. Tonga are playing really well and closing down a lot of space quickly. This is a surprisingly good game.

Tonga are just showing slight inexperience, they're turning Genge inside out in the scrum, there are penalties there for them.

Genge is good in the loose, nice passing but his scrummaging is pretty poor. Glasgow absolutely bodied him when they played Leicester a few years ago.

After crushing Scotland last year, has the sleeping giant of rugby started to awaken?

Find out tomorrow as the USA Eagles take on England. In the build up, Eddie Jones described the Eagles as 15 Donald Trumps which if accurate means that despite all the odds and intelligence, the USA will somehow win.

The Eagles have gone for experienced players such as Blaine Scully and youth in 19 year old David Ainuu, the second youngest front row player in RWC history. Backed by the power and scoring acumen of Joe Taufete'e at hooker and the ever dependable AJ MacGinty at 10, the Eagles have a shot at delivering FREEDOM (from the RWC quarter finals) to the relatively second string but strong side put out by England.

USA Eagles

1. David Ainuu
2. Joe Taufete'e
3. Titi Lamositele
4. Ben Landry
5. Nick Civetta
6.Tony Lamborn
7. John Quill
8. Cam Dolan
9. Shaun Davies
10. AJ MacGinty
11. Martin Iosefo
12. Paul Lasike
13. Marcel Brache
14. Blaine Scully (captain)
15. Will Hooley

England

1. Joe Marler
2. Luke Cowan-Dickie
3. Dan Cole
4. Joe Launchbury
5. George Kruis
6. Tom Curry
7. Lewis Ludlam
8. Billy Vunipola
9. Willi Heinz
10. George Ford
11. Joe Cokanasiga
12. Piers Francis
13. Jonathan Joseph
14. Ruaridh McConnochie
15. Elliot Daly

Yeah, probably a yellow card, definitely a penalty but unlikely to ever be a red unless it was cumulative warnings.

Just popping in to say Sir Clive's thermonuclear take on Hodge getting a three week ban of a shoulder charge to the head of a player is yet another reason he should never be on tv again.

Also Polledri looks excellent, even against a weak Canadian side. Italy are, sadly, just a better team without Parisse anymore.

Absolutely right, former players and coaches that frankly, haven't got a clue about the seriousness of concussion and CTE need to just sit back and shut the gently caress up. The whole "back in my day" and "game's gone soft" parade of wankers need to look at guys like John Shaw, who had a cut-out moment in an interview with John Beattie due to concussion or the stream of players retiring at 26, 27, 28 from concussion symptoms.

I like how to strengthen his argument he's quoted a recent tweet by Faimaono-Sapolu - a guy who 8 years ago compared the scheduling of rugby matches to the holocaust.

Faimaono-Sapolu is a low-key anti-semite and straight up transphobe. The guy is a turbocunt. He very recently liked a post on twitter about how the jews run South Africa and sanctioned apartheid to get the diamonds.

That's only the 5th Try Laidlaw has scored for Scotland, 75 caps , 710 points but just 5 tries. It's a remarkable record really.

Two of those are against Samoa.

In short, Greeg needs to play Samoa more often.

Mitigating circumstances can certainly be brought up by the ref to lower a sanction, for example if a player ducks or slips at the moment of a tackle and they get hit in the head, the ref may deem it to just be a penalty instead of yellow card worthy and so on. There's a little wiggle room but with head contact they're more likely to stick to the letter of the law.

Kick passes have been around for a while but they're really effective against poorer opposition so they're happening a lot this year.
