Nice I forgot I had tickets to Wales vs Tonga. Supposed to be a typhoon then so Iím wondering if I can make the train over.

I also need to find someone to go with I suppose lol

Is it written in crayon because Wales aren't playing Tonga, unless you now something about the knock out stages we don't?

I'm equally amazed Rupert Henry St. John Barker Moon ended up playing for Wales instead of England

He was a swap for Dewi Morris.

Huw Jones, most Welsh name ever. Born in and plays for Scotland.

You're welcome.

Tonga, Georgia, same thing both end in an A

Could be worse, could have mistaken them for Fiji and said they all look alike.

England, well O2 I doubt the RFU had much to do with this, have done it again!

France doing some classic Francing at the start of the second half.

Not thrilled about the offside line seemingly disappearing though. Argentina can feel hard done by.

He just seems caught between two minds at every ruck, and ends up making that just-sub-optimal decision. It doesn't help that the midfield outside him have been playing like simpletons, and I'm not sure there's any forward/backrow movement for him to work with (or he's not calling for it.)

His kicking has been muck since his first two kicks and I don't think the boks have won anything in the air. Now the Abs have righted themselves it's really clear just how out of options the SA attack is.
