    It was a shit tackle. He was standing upright trying to hug a big unit running flat out at him. He didn't lead with an elbow to the throat, it was forearm to chest and came up to his throat when he went flying backwards. Any way you look at it, it was a shit tackle.

    It may have been a shit tackle, but if you carry the ball with your forearm or elbow raised like some NRL thug, you risk a sanction if it goes wrong.

    Sooo.
    With this fairly typical weather event developing, with some people known to be killed already and 8 million told to evacuate, I wonder if this may be abandoned altogether.

    Thoughts for the local people.

    Sweaties can't live with Japan's pace, power and precision.

    Here, but lost. Am I lost if i know i'm here?
    Scotland called out Japan like a bully and got thrashed.

    I'm now even more cautious of them, as a Boks fan, and suspect they were sand bagging just a little bit in that earlier warm up game.

    Bravo the Blossoms. What a game.

    Absolutely pulsating game of rugby today between Japan and Scotland :clap

    Japan were on FIRE and then Scotland came back into it and all credit to them.

    Great game :thumb

    p.s. very good example of a tackle in the game where the ball carrier went (very) low and the tackler connected with the head throgh no fault of his own. Happy to say common sense prevailed and nobody got their marching orders.

    Given the Taff is far from the perpendicular I’d say contact was made a bit earlier. Ball carry is fine.

    I dont think the Scott's did themselves any favors with the winging and chucking around scurrilous slurs and suggestions.
    Just seemed to piss everybody else off.

    Good on ya Brave Blossoms.

    Some musings

    Going to be very interesting Japan v the Bocks indeed. Good fitness test.

    Not sure with the Poms v Wallabies. Think the Poms may prevail.

    Wales v France. ?? France?

    Ireland v Kiwi's. They kicked arse last 2 times...... hope the boys step up this time. Not sure there will be a threepeet.

    What do you guys recon. Put it up there.
