A questionable red card, only on the basis it wasn’t as remotely as dangerous as the French yellow last night. No sign of consistency yet…

And a sneaky classy droppy to end the half, 17-7 with some decent rugby played by Uruguay, some upset this would be, just has nil consequence in this group though

Rough yellow card that...Italian headbutts his shoulder more than anything...really hope it doesn't get upgraded

Would've been interesting logistically speaking, as the Rugby Europe Championship (the comp for non-6 Nations teams) doubles as qualifying for the WC.

Assuming they didn't get the arse from the 6N Italia would have to double up.

I think they'd get a play-off against the 2nd or 3rd in the Europe Six Nations, but I think it'd start the conversation about kicking them out of the 6N

The yellow card for the Uruguay skipper was even worse

Good game but it was a shame how much Uruguay fell away in the second half

Yeah that's the binning I meant, both Italian yellows were justified, the Uruguayan wasn't. Barely met level of a penalty imo.

I've just gone back and rewatched it. It's really bad and would be more discussed had this happened in a more consequential game

Molehill would be fuming if he were watching. Namibia might be stronger if they took advantage of their whole population.

Also, hoping this doesn't go same way as the Aus game in 2003:

There has been a couple of 'decent' showings as well, albeit, then followed by not so decent showings:

They did however finish 17th at RWC 2019, by virtue of a....uh....call it a Draw....

South Africa have picked 15 forwards in their 22 for tomorrow. France appear to have 15 backs on the field right now.
