Aki has been a liability all tournament. Better irish players at home.

Aki isn't even Irish. Residency rule is a joke.

🙁 sure it was Stockdales fault Samoa got a yellow card, imagine leading with your head and dipping too low. Driscoll would never do that. Chube

Yip. It should only be a limited option for Tier 2 and below.

Frankly, the RWC is a joke.

Stockdale should have been red carded for that leading with the head.. absolute disgrace and for the record BoD is one bigoted Warren Gatland..

A lot of the challenge now is who goes lowest, imagine a real problem for 2nd rows against shorter players. Go too high defensively and either you go backwards and/or get carded

Real sympathy for Ali btw, yes a red card but with a loose ball it all happened so quickly. He does have a tendency to go too high with physicality in his arms

First Japanese lineout the thrower was standing on the touchline. Should he not be behind it?

Stop yer whinging BM. This is class stuff from Japan. They are playing a brand of rugby we can only dream of. Whatever the outcome for Ireland I hope Japan give the miserable scots another lesson in the second half.

The only positive thing you can about Ireland is that it was better than the previous game and that they coped with losing Aki against a team you'd expect to beat comfortably if you lost even 2 players to red cards.

Japan are the perfect antidote to the Irish/Scottish kick kick kick borefest.
