The Japanese have defeated my dear Rugby-mad country at its own game, have they? Wonderful news!

There are going to be a lot of upset gamblers here in NZ Angry

The TAB (official betting organisation) is offering $1,000,000 if you can pick all the results of RWC correctly

I wonder home many live bets are left now Undecided

Apparently 48,000 had entered, ONE person had picked Japan to beat South Africa Shocked

For some reason he picked Uruguay to beat Wales Undecided TAB's $1,000,000 is safe now Sad

Presumably for the same reason he picked Japan to win - going for underdogs all the way.


All Blacks looked a bit pushed by Argentina for a fair bit of the match this afternoon.

From the little I saw of that one, I had the feeling that the Kiwis had another gear or two that they could have gone up......But they weren't as impressive, as I thought they might have been.

The AB's certainly weren't at their best..... I was a bit concerned at the end of the first half...

Japan were brilliant Smiley

Still in shock Shocked

I've never seen one team dominate another so completely and still lose. Well done to Wales for hanging in there. As much as it pains me to say so, if Wales had been able to put a full strength team out the game could have been completely different and the win margin significantly bigger.

Not sure about that, Nosher Undecided (I didn't see all of the game, anyway.)
I imagine, that a 'neutral' wouldn't have thought of the game as 'a classic' until the last few minutes...which WAS exciting, because it could have easily gone either way.

Being a Welsh supporter, I still can't believe they actually won! Talk about resilience in the face of adversity. The English team must be completely shell shocked.

Indeed. Wow! What a great result for Wales! English fans must feel gutted (been there). And Scotland won too! OK. Its was 'only' against the U.S.A.  But the way we Scots have been playing these days we never know what to expect (and never underestimate our transatlantic cousins).

Where's 'Greta Pig' these days? He like the rugby. Anyone else missing him? Or, is he back .... in another disguise ...... ? I think it might be ....

Africa may take a terrible revenge on Japan one day. There's a thriving shogi federation in Ghana, believe it or not. Wouldn't it be a dream if they sent a team to the far east some day and defeated the samurai of the chessboard too?

Yep, awesome display by the Wallabies. Definitely deserved their win. Cracking game with Scotland against Samoa, just a shame that Samoa didn't get the win after their wonderful attacking play. Also would have meant Japan going through, which would have been good for the game overall.
