    Only 2 teams in each group can go through to the quarter finals.
    In Group A its very hard to call who will qualify between England,Wales and Australia.
    I hope the 3 Lions make it and with home advantage at Twickenham they should just do it.

    18th Sep

    England 35-11 Fiji

    England start the Rugby world cup with a win at Twickenham against a brave Fiji but it was a poor display.

    It wasn't until the last 10 mins that we could relax when those 2 tries went over.

    we will have to play much better than that against Wales and Australia if we want to progress out of Pool A.

    I don;t tink most people understand how massive that win for Japan is. The ripples of this win will reverberate throughout Japanese society in a way you could never imagine. To put into perspective after the war , Japan as a country and as a people were on their knees .Totally demoralized and beaten due to the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Those events brought an end to the war because it was evident to the people and leadership of that country that they were deemed as a sub human life form that didn't fall under the international laws of war . How did Japan become such a super power again by the 80's ? Well what played a major part in the building up of the self esteem of the people of that country was the mafia run circus called Pro Wrestling. Japanese people on an almost national level ,were glued to their radio's for what they believed to be legitimate fights where Japanese wrestlers were defeating foreign counter parts in the ring. Of course these fights were fixed ,but they didn't know that at the time and it culminated in the growth of pride across the country. Little did they know that some of their biggest heroes were not even Japanese ,but Korean.
    This Rugby win however is not fake ,it is 100% legitimate and it's a sport of power ,speed and guile. They beat one of the best teams out there and it will have a ripple effect without question.

    SUNDAY 20TH SEPTEMBER 2015
    POOL A
    Wales 54-9 Uruguay

    POOL B
    Samoa 25-16 USA

    POOL C
    New Zealand 26-16 Argentina


    Argentina gave the holders New Zealand a real scare at Wembley stadium in front of a record
    crowd of 82,000 and lead at half time but the All Blacks recovered in the 2nd half and went on to win.

    WEDNESDAY 23RD SEPTEMBER 2015
    POOL A
    Australia 28-13 Fiji

    POOL B
    Scotland 45-10 Japan


    Australia begin with a win but again were made to work hard by Fiji while Japan couldn't repeat
    the heroics against South Africa and ran out of steam against the Scottish who capitalized on a tired looking opposition.

    Re: 2015 Rugby World Cup

    Really enjoyable World Cup so far, I was at Twickenham for the France Italy game last weekend, great atmosphere all day with what must have been about 70,000 French people in the stadium. Watched the Japan game on the big screen outside beforehand, you'd swear France had just won the World Cup with the celebrations when Japan scored at the end, a truly great sporting moment that even people that know nothing about rugby couldn't help but be absorbed in.

    All going well for Ireland so far as well, all down to the France game as to whether we play the All Blacks or Argentina. I watched the Argentina game yesterday and they looked very impressive so they're not going to be pushovers even if we do top the group.

    Hard to know who to call favourites so far, New Zealand looking good though Argentina gave them a good test so I don't think they're unbeatable. England will have to be in contention being at home and th French always perform at the World Cup. Not sure about Ireland, we have arguably our best ever team but don't think we're quite good enough to compete with the very best for 80 minutes

    Edit: Great video here pretty much mirrors what it was like outside Twickenham when Japan scored, thousands of people genuinely delighted for a result that meant absolutely nothing to them personally, what these events are all about!
