  • Wales vs Fiji score, review, stats

    Fiji 38Wales 34 There’s been a lot of wanging on about this being the best game of the world cup so far. I guess for a sevens style of free-flowing fluctuating game yes. But what this game really nailed once and for all is how naive Wales has become, trying to out-fiji...

    England 36Tonga 20 For the first 30 minutes of this test it looked like Tonga’s fairy tale might go all the way, but in the end England just had too much nous. The forwards in white were able to strangle the game when needed forcing the Tongans to make mistakes that Sackey...

  • Wallabies vs Fiji RWC’07 player ratings

    To be honest, Saturday’s was the kind of scrappy effort that left me uninspired when it comes to writing player ratings. So instead, I’ve shamelessly ripped off the anonymous ones syndicated by AAP and stuck on my own thoughts in green. Feel free to take a shot or defend them if they’re...

    Australia vs Fiji RWC ’07; score, review, stats

    Wallabies 55 Fiji (B) 12 At no stage today did the Wallabies get into top gear, in fact there were plenty of periods of play where the game just turned scrappy. Nevertheless, the pleasing aspect to take out of this game was that Australia still managed to run in 7 tries, whereas...
