Posted in: Trump abruptly ends briefing after contentious exchanges See in context

First let me be clear I despise trump for the 1000s of lies, stupidity, ignorance etc etc etc....

I mostly agree with you comments. I heard something about his lies, though, which I often think about.

The lies of Trump - spontaneous, impulsive, self serving

The lies of the political establishment - planned, manipulative, ideological, totalitarian

Pick your lies.

The libs (media, government, liberals in general) flip flop more than freshly caught fish. If you actually keep your receipts you'll realise this. They've been behind from the word go and change constantly for one reason and one reason only - they hate Trump.

Beer & politics should never mix. Unless the politicians are drinking beer - then they might make better decisions. Even better if it's Japanese beer... because it's wonderful.

Posted in: New Zealand beatable, insists England coach Jones See in context

With Eddie Jones as head coach and John Mitchell as defensive coach I’m sure a win over this English team would be extra special.

Good point! The ABs (and probably all of New Zealand) will hate losing to Mitchell!!

Posted in: New Zealand beatable, insists England coach Jones See in context

Go the All Blacks, England are just trying to win a world cup, the All Blacks are trying to win their Third World Cup In A row

I think it's more than this. A reason the All Blacks are so successful is that there is an expectation that they win every game... therefore they approach every game with a genuine desire to win. World cup or no world cup. Last time England won the world cup they toured NZ the following year and lost 3 from 3. It was as if once the cup was in the bag they didn't care.

You mentioned Eddie Jones... don't forget he and his team managed to knock NZ out of the 2003 world cup!

Posted in: Everyone is watching us now, says proud Japan coach Joseph See in context

I think Japan was completely over matched in this particular match and I think the All Blacks vs. South Africa may end up being the best match of the whole World Cup.

One step at a time! Both teams have to win once more before they play again. England will be tough for the ABs & Wales won't be easy for the Boks. Anything can happen.

Posted in: Everyone is watching us now, says proud Japan coach Joseph See in context

"Everyone is watching us now..."

@smithinjapan - I think what Joseph is referring to is that now the rugby world is paying attention to Japan. Japan are now a real force, and hopefully this will continue with better opportunities.

As far as people actually now watching the tournament... well that's different and I tend to agree with you. Let's face it, Japan doing so well made the tournament interesting. Not just for Japan but for everyone with an interest in rugby. Now that they're out, it's back to the traditional powerhouse nations. Unless you're from one of those nations you probably aren't that fussed anymore...

@Ganbare Japan! - They know that Japan is only 1 of 2 unbeaten teams. They know Japan beat them last time.

Maybe I'm missing something. Japan, ABs, England, Wales, France - all unbeaten.

The idea is that Japan doing well in this sport will generate interest in young sportspersons.

Yip - agreed. Japan has very good athletes... and tough ones as well. The current rugby wave of success will hopefully encourage some of them to take up the sport. One or two more wins in this tournament would certainly help!!

Posted in: O'Shea rues 'horrible' end to Italy's World Cup campaign See in context

@Pukey2 - I've heard there are contingency plans for the knock out stages. So that begs the question, why can't there be the same plans for pool games that are also essentially knock out opportunities. Eg NZ v Italy - while unlikely that Italy would come close... mathematically there was still a chance to get through.

Posted in: O'Shea rues 'horrible' end to Italy's World Cup campaign See in context

It's an utter disaster. If NZ needed they points they would have found a way to play the game. I'm certain of it. I feel so disappointed for the Italians.

Posted in: Scotland want flexibility for Japan match See in context

It's essential for the game to be played one way or another. Even if it's in a random indoor stadium with no crowd. No game would ruin the tournament and ensure Japan is remembered as the team that didn't earn their place in the last 8.

The Pumas cant be under rated, narrowly losing to France and a good win over Tonga. Two teams with different strengths.

Posted in: All Blacks score 9 tries in 63-0 romp over Canada See in context

Canada should not really be in this contest. Rugby is a minor league sport in Canada and I doubt even one in 500 Canadians know or care about this game or the Rugby World cup at all.

Canada qualified fair and square. Rugby might not be popular but they've had success and have even made the quarter-final stages once before.

Posted in: All Blacks score 9 tries in 63-0 romp over Canada See in context

Unfortunately this is why rugby will never go anywhere as a true international sport. The NZ coach is upset because they didn't win 200-0?

Nobody said that. However, the All Blacks have extremely high standards & dropped the ball when they shouldn't have. It's pretty normal to be frustrated at that.

Posted in: All Blacks score 9 tries in 63-0 romp over Canada See in context

Here's an idea, why don't the top 4 teams in the world automatically qualify for the quarter finals. Then the remaining 16 battle it out in the pool stage to make up the other 4 quarter finalists. This would avoid these ridiculous games where the (now) rank 22 country plays the all blacks.

Because then we would never have seen Japan beat South Africa and Ireland.
