    Japan have been brave, but this could get very ugly now. 58-3 with 20 minutes to go.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Had a bit of a chuckle at Matt Dunning partially selling a dummy there towards the end. A solid win first up though, i thought Gregan, Sharpe & Elsom were our standouts. Good to see Barnes get his debut over and done with in the first match, so if he is called upon later on against one of the stronger teams he's (hopefully) not overawed.

    Edit: A big FFS at the scrums during this game though, was sooooooo frustrating. I honestly don't think there was 1 scrum that didn't get reset at least once.

    Better to take the time and get it sorted I reckon. Too much potential for disaster if you don't.

    Yeah i'd agree, but it doesn't make it any less frustrating.

    Thought Japan played really well in the first 30 minutes. I can't beleive they fell away that much. Barnes looks good, hopefully he never goes back to league.

    Indeed, I think I find it less frustrating because I've played a fair bit in the front row and know how important the scrum is.

    The bit that probably frustrates me the most though is when in my eyes the scrum seems fine (i.e hasn't collapsed ) and the ref stops it. It all stems from me not understanding all the rules i spose...

    Yeah, really ****s me when the ball is at the #8's feet and about to be passed out the backline and the ref blows his whistle because the front rows have collapsed. Some discretion needs to be applied in that situation.

    Canada have had a good dart at it, but Wales' superior fitness has been telling. Thomas & Jones coming off the bench really turned the game tho.

    Canada were all over Wales in the first half, but I always had a sneak feeling that they were just gonna run out of steam half way through the 2nd half, dislike the Welsh as much as anyone tbh, Canada made a good account for themselves.

    Awesome first half. Our defence has been outstanding, and the backline is really clicking well in attack. Barnes & Mortlock have been fantastic, and if Mortlock isn't the best centre in the world atm i'll eat my hat. Breaks the line soooo often, and is awesome in defence. Good to see he got back at Thomas for his cheap shot on Barnes.
