Looks like the typhoon is going to lead to many cancellations. Tables stay as they are and Scotland goes home.

Probably fair enough.

Freeze the groups as they are.

Move onto knockout stages.

I'm just glad the NZ Italy game has been cancelled, as clearly the AB's were planning on throwing that game to knock SA out of the competition so they don't have to meet them again in the final.

Joe Cocknasinga should have been sent home despite the fact he's lived here since he was 2 and his dad was in the British Army.

All their cousins are in Auckland, but they’d make more money playing rugby in Europe, I doubt it’s a better life though. They’re used to seeing the sun on a daily basis.

I'd agree with that.

It's a travesty. Or, it was.

Yes, in Auckland. I take it you haven’t been there. It’s a subtropical climate, not a sub Arctic climate like Northern England.

Tell him he knows nothing about rugby because the Scotch have never beaten the All Blacks so shut the fuck up. Unless he’s brought you a special single malt whiskey to sip on, then sip frequently, let him blather on, but don’t bother listening.
