      Think he was involved in Glasgow the time Matawalu bit Dunners too?

      No, thanks
      He bit Clohessey and Townsend tried to make it a racial issue, same as the Poison Dwarf (Shane Williams) did to Marcus a few years prior.

        At least 46 players will be relieved, no longer competing for the worst team in the tournament, which Canada would have won handily.

          Fine clear blue skys in Yokohama reported so hopefully the storm has passed and the Japan Scotland game can go ahead

            USA v Tonga and Wales v Uruguay going ahead.

            Assessment still ongoing in relation to Japan v Scotland.

If it gives ahead i fancy Scotland to win, but the Japanese could get 4 tries and a losing bonus point, that’s my favored outcome

                  blow me over with a feather.....Japan Scotland goes ahead. Delighted. Would have left a bad taste if Japan went through without playing game. Hope they do it now, 4-1 win for Scotland

                      Yes, and Pedro posted 4 tries and a losing bonus for Japan was his favoured outcome, but thank you for explaining the point I was making.

                        Japan were very shaky v Russia in 1st half. Pressure might be big factor and Scotland are a stubborn bunch when they put their minds to it. If they give Japan nothing early on might well be Scotland's day.

                          It won't be a 4-0 win either way anyway.

                          I expect Scotland to win. The Russian and Samoan games have showed that Japan's base level is lower imho. It will be very hard to stop them getting nothing out of it, and some of reffing so far has been incredibly suspect.

                          Ideal scenario is 4-1 Scotland. Japan through, but we go top and the two faced jocks piss off home early.

                            Very tough to call Japan vs Scotland. Both under pressure, not much between them in terms of capability, Japan arguably with a bit more momentum.

                            If the Japanese manage to drive the pace of the game I can't see the Scots coping well. Their defence is suspect.

                                Scotland have a chance to make a poor effort look decent enough to return home with heads held reasonably high- I think that’s a massive opportunity to save face. Japan, on the other hand, with everything in their favour can only lose face. I think Scotland will win, hopefully not by enough to qualify, and not too little to deny Japan first place. 4-1, 4-0 is what I’m hoping for.
