    Samoa-Fiji took a long time to get going this afternoon - opportunities kept being extinguished by handling errors. But I really enjoyed the last 20 minutes or so.

    Yeh the final quarter of the match was good to watch but until that point the match was a bit of a let-down truth be told. Pleased to see Samoa get the victory but I don't hold much hope for them getting close to South Africa next week.

    I didn;t watch the game at all - but from the Wales game I just remember that Samoa has 1 or 2 players who let them down.

    Would be great to see an Islands team competing at the RWC.

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

    Handling errors seem to be a common theme for the Pacific Island teams this world cup. I dont know why. Do they play touch as children for skills development or do they play tackle from a very young age?

    I know Sevens is more popular.

    At work, so not able to watch tonight's game. How are Wales looking? They're not racking up quite as big a score as I'd expected.

    Edit: Oh, they're piling on the points now.

    Samoa playing like their very lives are on the line - never seen such passion on the field before.

    Not liking the refeering though. Breaking up the play for a lot of vague infringements, but not stamping down on the continual needle at ruck time.

    Probably even stevens now after the ref missed a blatant knock on in the build up to the Samoan try. Samoa looking much better in the 2nd half.

    Smit. Deliberate knock on. Way to throw away that man advantage, Yarps.
