Posted in: Japan rejoices after Rugby World Cup over Scotland See in context

A great win with some amazing play. I missed seeing most of the Ireland Japan game and was told Japan had been playing brilliant rugby in that, which I found a little unbelievable after their first match with Russia, but the performance last night was a real class act.

This footage of one try is amazing!

Fantastic game. Incredibly tense at the end. Well deserved win by Japan.

Its only right to err on side of caution and cancel the Brave Blossoms v Scotland match. 

I disagree. I think if the game can go ahead it should

Must be the calm before the storm here - it's barely even raining, and that just started.

Where's "here"? Been raining fairly heavily for a few hours out this way... Tachikawa.

A very simple and easy matter has been made so difficult with a brainless decision.

No decision has been made yet.

Regarding the Japan team and the game on Sunday.

That is rather mean-spirited, I think.

I totally feel for the Italians who were unable to retire from the game after playing what could have been a career highlight. I hope the Scotland Japan game goes ahead and I’ll feel sorry for Scotland if it doesn’t. But pre-empting the decision with threats of legal action is not displaying good sportsmanship and if the game goes ahead as planned their threats actually dampen the mood anyway. Yeah it sucks that the game might be cancelled and it hasn’t been organized in a way for the game to be postponed but they’re trying to influence the organizer’s decision and that’s dangerous not just because of this typhoon.

semperfi - yep I agree. Just if it continues, as the head of the team he has an influence on the overall image. Long term behavior like this is really poor. I agree with World Rugby on this. Right now focus on what matters and that’s getting past this storm. Worry about the aftermath later.

I hope the game can go ahead and I’m sympathetic to them but these threats of legal action at this time kind of turn me off Scotland.

I'd be filthy if i were an Italian/Scottish supporter. 

Agreed. Although they’re not likely to go all the way, having the chance to go as far as they can removed like this really sucks.

And making the decision on Sunday about the Japan game serves only one purpose, the qualification of Japan. That game can be postponed now. Till Monday. 

The game won’t be postponed. It’ll be held or cancelled. If it’s cancelled Japan goes through. Completely unfair for Scotland.

Which store shelves is the writer talking about, never new zealand or French butter here in Japan for the general consumer.

It is imported but not avaikabke to the general public.

Our local SEIYU has New Zealand butter.

Hey but the first paragraph of the other article about this same topic complains this deal would onlywin back benefits lost from TPP so that’s bad. Now this one says no it won’t. Liberals need to get the narrative straight.

No it doesn't. It ONLY mentions it would win back benefits lost from the TPP when Trump pulled out. It doesn't say ONLY win back benefits lost. Two completely different statements with two completely different meanings. This article talks about the things from the TPP that are not being reinstated but doesn't say that nothing is. Conservatives need to learn how to read.

Posted in: Italy pair banned for tip-tackle at Rugby World Cup See in context

From another article -

When referee Barnes first saw it on the big screen, he turned to assistant referee Romain Poite and said "that's bad, isn't it?," to which Poite nodded in response.

"It's which one," Barnes then said, indicating only one player could be disciplined for the action.

"[Number] one has got his left leg in the air and then dropped him head first. Blue [Italy] one is the worst offender of those two. He's lifted him, 17 has started it. One has continued the action more and then dropped him on his head. 

"This is a clear and easy decision. This is a red card."

Barnes then sent off Lovotti but not Quaglio.

When I saw the replay of the tackle I immediately wondered why only one was red carded. Apparently one of the touch judges was asked by the ref which player had to go and was told both of them, but the ref said he could only red card one of them. A three match ban seems too lenient for it IMO.

Posted in: Joseph praises never-say-die Japan after last-gasp bonus-point win See in context

Please explain. - Rugby Newbie

can’t remember if the final Japan try was converted or not but at that point, Japan 31 (33?) and Samoa 19, should Samoa have turned it over and run away with a converted try they would have finished on 26... a loss by less than 7 is a bonus point. Unlikely considering the location of the play at the time but not impossible.

Makes me hope Japan crash out just to take that smug look off his face.

Sad huh? Still I really want Japan to make it through to the last eight this time. The Japanese team has nothing of the arrogance that he is showing. Pride not arrogance is what people love about the game.

Scotland need a bonus point win agains Russia and then beat Japan by 7 points and the “International 15” will again miss out on the knockout stage.

If Japan holds Scotland to a close margin in a low scoring game, it’ll go to Japan. Whatever happens, it’s gonna be a thriller. Also, Scotland isn’t much better for the number of foreign players.

Believe me, I wasn't joking. If Gen Mattis was still there, I'd be a little more assured, but with the current band of sycophants.....

again I agree.

You have no idea how that works, do you? One person, even the POTUS cannot launch nuclear missiles on his own with the push of a button.

Refer to the post above and you’ll see that it is clearly understood. It’s all about context.

I don't think they need a bonus point. It is Scotland that needs bonus points.

Scotland has two games left, Russia and Japan. A bonus point win against Russia is likely, and a win against Japan is not unlikely. They get both and they’ll be on 14 points, equal with Japan. They get a bonus point win against Japan they’ll be 1 point ahead. Japan is not safely through and they need to win to go through or If Scotland gets a bonus point win then Japan could go through with 2 bonus points (loss by less than 7 and scoring four tries) but that’s a high scoring game. Best scenario is a win of course.

if Japan goes into that game with the same attitude then they’ve already lost.

I’m glad they won and got the bonus point. That was a must. Still without a bonus point at a minimum against Scotland next weekend we could be heading for the same situation as 2015. The performance tonight wasn’t the same standard as their performance against Ireland. They do need to step up against Scotland.

Liberals complain about money he makes and then 2 mins later mock him for losing money. Which one is it?

Both. When he makes money the means are questionable at best which is why his tax returns should be handed over, and criminal at worst which is why his tax returns should be handed over. When he loses money it just shows how everything the republicans love about him is based on lies. But your complaining about liberals complaining about his money when you’ve been complaining about democrats making or losing money show utter hypocrisy.
