    Who needs Larkham when you got Berrick Barnes. Best league recuit ever.

    Surprisingly tight first half. Well, ish; it's 22-5 & I'd expect Oz to pull away from the Fijian second-string after the break.

    Really not happy about this idea of teams sticking out their "B" teams against the best teams in the group (like Fiji & Scotland are doing today) to target games down the line, I have to say.

    hmmmmm, shocking first 30 minutes from Australia really. Sure they scored a try, but everything else they did was a mess. Lacked structure, Gregan was dire with shocking delivery to Barnes, and the rolling maul setup just wasn't working. That last 10 minutes was better but i don't think Connolly will be at all happy, especially letting in the try in the dying moments of the half.

    Hopefully their 2nd 40 is a vast improvement.

    I thought Australia played really well. Their Forwards have dramatically improved since last year. I think the real challenge for the Australians will be against South Africa/All Blacks if they make it that far. Canada will just be a formality.

    Great effort from Japan so far. Leading yer Canadians by 5-0 after half-an-hour. Good value for it too; 'twas a lovely try from their 14. Went thru the Canadian 5/8th's tackle & then stood up his opposite number and beat him on the outside.

    Conditions not really going to suit the Australians, with their superior backline. Let's see how well their tight forwards can contribute to a game, probably the weakest part of their side.

    Nice to see Adam Ashley-Cooper getting some game time, really rate him.

    ffs white is a dire ref, he's so ****ing pedantic and overbearing.

    Yeah, definetly rate AA-Cooper as well, hope he gets the wing job ahead of Mitchell next week.

    Drew Mitchell is woeful, had one good season when he burst onto the Test scene and has really fallen away since then. Played better this year, but still not enough to get into the side ahead of Mark Gerrard. I know Gerrard is injured ATM, which is a shame, but I couldn't understand the selectors picking Mitchell infront of him when both were available.

    Freir and Baxter both crossing the white line for their first Test tries, good to see.

    Can't beleive Hux is playing 10, should've just played Sharpe there, best set of Hands for a forward in the game imo.

    Well Larkham's injured isn't he? You can't play Berrick Barnes every game, not with your first choice flyhalf missing a fair chunk of the tournament. I suppose Matt Giteau was the other option, but he doesn't fare too well at first five.
