    The performance of the Brave Blossoms - Japan - has been incredible.

    I am so glad they beat Scotland after the threats of multi million dollar lawsuits from those pillocks at the top of Scottish rugby if the game was cancelled because of the typhoon. For them to place a rugby game as being more important than the lives of millions of people was sickening.

    It was reported that a number of the Japanese volunteers who made the playing of the Japan v Scotland game possible turned up to do their duty, even though their homes had been destroyed / damaged by the typhoon.

    Scotland might be considered a little unlucky if they had gone out with their match being cancelled. However, as they both faced exactly the same teams before then it could hardly have been seen as unfair.

    I agree that it does seem in rather poor taste to have threatened to litigate in the circumstances.

    Scotland has turned into one of the worst countries in "Europe" and I say that as someone who loves the place.

    With 2 intercept tries (touchdowns) England comfortably beat Australia 40-16. They will meet New Zealand in one semi-final who clinically destroyed Ireland, 46-14.

    Wales squeaked by France 20-19 and will meet the winner of South Africa v Japan, on now

    Setting up the BBQ (pork belly, ribs, mussels) at the farm getting ready for THE GAME.
    All Blacks of New Zealand v the Wilted (here’s hoping anyway) Roses of Mother England.

    I never thought I'd be posting on this thread, but I just came across this and had to share it.
