    Sheridan out of world cup

    From the BBC.

    Bollocks, tbh.

    Stevens a quality replacement, but we will lose a little in the scrum.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Georgia looking good here, hope they can maintain the physicality for 80 minutes - some bloody big boys in that pack.

    Pretty average match, I had originally tipped Scotland as a side to really look out for at the WC but they really struggled to break down a solid but hardly dominant Georgian side; given their efforts tonight plus their narrow win over Romania I doubt England and Argentina are shaking in their boots.

    Scotland are a very paradoxical team; hard to beat but find it equally hard to win. Very good at the break down, strong line out, competitive but slightly lightweight scrum but no cutting edge at all.

    Struggle to cross the whitewash even more than we do.

    Fancy them v the Argies tho, just quietly.

    Scotland look the weakest of the traditionally strong sides.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Encouraging start for England ruined by a powdefpuff scrum in their own 22. Saved from conceding by a stray foot in touch.

    England fortunate to be in such a **** group. Look complete ****house. Georgia are awful, missed 3 pens, made numerous handling areas and keep losing their own line-out but they have been the better side thus far. Scary to think that England and Scotland will likely progress from here and that England should get to the semis at least.

    I think "should" puts it strongly. We've a decent chance against the French, but it wouldn't be a massive surprise if they turned us over.

    Stevens being schooled up front tho. Not a massive surprise given he plays all his rugby on the tight head side for Sarries now.

    Poor first half, much much better in the second half.

    This

    With a half decent kicker, Georgia shouldve been leading after about 60 minutes and it was really only the superior fitness of the English that comes from being full-time pros that made the difference

    Some of the show-boating from the English backs was absolutely cringeworthy and it seems obvious that very few players are putting up their hand to do the hard yards

    Jonners has a huge amount of work to do
