I also didn't approve, but it is clear that deliberate fouls are being aggressively penalized.

FTFY and have a yellow card :p

I think it's great, that they are taking a much harsher look...that aspects of the game, just so long it doesn't affect the flow of the game.

Not sure how the rules work in a situation like that, though. Surely you can't just hang around behind the opponent's lines and wait for it to be open play and then run into their lines?

After watching Georgia and Tonga game, I fancy Namibia's chances of winning their first world cup match...

Go Jacques Burger & co....... The only other Afrikaans speaking span in the world beker...

It will be good to see the lowest ranked team in the World Cup making a dent. Playing for third place in their pool.

Glad Canada were able to get some points. Hirayama and Van der Merwe have been playing very well tonight.

Well done Ireland, lekker win, tough games ahead. I'm proud that Canada played 80 minutes. Ireland made some handling errors which they have to work on.

Brave show by Canada. Not a shabby game at all.

Quick shower, then 2-min brush-up on Japanese.

Almost time for the big game! It's such a shame that Alberts isn't playing.
