    Idk. They looked pretty sloppy in that first game with SA. Both teams did. My money is on Japan

    Uruguay having a day out. Hope they can hold on, much as I like Fiji.

    I think Fiji were $1.01 with the bookies.

    I really like watching the lower ranked nations at RWC. So far Georgia, and Russia have also delivered without winning.

    Can't believe Hodge got 3 weeks. Didn't even think it was a penalty. If that's the standard then I agree with all those questioning how Kieran Read escaped a citing. That was deliberate and off-the-ball.

    I could be wrong, but didn't the refs on field check the Hodge tackle when it happened and said it was ok? If that's the case, how can he be reprimanded for it after the the on field refs gave the all clear? It doesn't seem very professional undermining the refs that they hand picked for the world cup

    Sure did. But players can be cited if the officials miss an incident. Though nowdays, when incidents are reviewed from multiple camera angles by three on field and a TMO it seems insulting to impose such a heavy sanction.

    Hodge was wrong footed and put off balance by the Fijian player stepping inside and dropping slightly. Bloody ridiculous. If that's the bench mark, those 2 Samoans can expect life.

    BTW. Marcel is 50-1 for first try and you can bet each way. Get on

    What about that USA red card last night! As long as they are going to be consistent with the sanctions, it's all good.

    I've put a couple bucks (literally) on Russia, Namibia and Canada winning their next ones

    so the fijian player was at fault for wrong footing hodge and put him off balance?
    ha ha

    hodge screamed across and smashed his shoulder into the fijian, it's hodges responsibility to tackle properly, not the fijians.
    if players want to run at great speed into opposing players, they must do it legally or be punished.
    fine lines and all that, but that was the case with folau crashing into players in the air.
    do it correct and it's great, fuck up and get banned.

    the USA bloke got a deserved red card

    Thanks for explaining all that. But I didn't see anyone blaming the Fijian player. That would be as ridiculous as expecting Hodge to stand idly by and wave him through to the goal line.

    In these incidents those things are considered in mitigation. And apparently 3 top level referees and a TMO also took those into consideration. But I'm glad it gave you a laugh.
