Think Scotland are just hanging in there. It's all they need to do.

No leadership from England and Wilkinson's killing us. If he can't place kick anymore, what's is his use? He's pointless. Literally so thus far.

Considering Parkes had to come in after a few minutes for an injury he hasn't really put a foot wrong.

Suprised he is the no 1 fly half over Flood TBH the vast majority of the Englans's decent stuff over the last 18 months has been done with Flood and Youngs.

Shocking effort.

Stevens being taken apart by Murray up front. That's what happens when you play a bloke at loosehead who plays all his rugby at tighthead now. So we call up a #8 for our injured first choice loosehead. Obviously.

Is there any good reason why Youngs doesn't just take the ball straight out of the scrum?

He keeps mucking around by leaving it in and then we loose the ball.

What an absolute shower of ****. Bring back the stocks and line these ****ing idiots up in a public square so we can all have a go at these total numpties.

Scotland need a lot to go in their favor here. The only way they can certainly go through is winning with 4 tries in the second half and England not getting a bonus point.

If they let England within 7 they probably won't go through.
If they beat England by 8-20 they probably won't go through unless Argentina either dies against Georgia or gets the 4 try bonus point.

Will be heartbreaking for them not to go through if they win tonight.

If they win by 8+ then Scotland will be level on points with England, which means they go above on head to head.

It's if the two teams plus Argentina are level that I'm not entirely sure on. If it goes on head-to-heads and also includes points difference (within the head-to-head games) then England would lose out on that.

It goes to point difference if all 3 are on level points after Argie only get the 4 for the win.

Considering how few tries Georgia have let in that is probably the most likely result from that match.

Wait is it just points difference in the head to head games!?!

Oh joy now we're relying on Scotland's traditionally hilarious lack of clinical finishing to stay in the World Cup.

It's like watching a car crash in slow motion.

FFS, Wilkinson finally nails one and the comms talk like he's cured cancer.
