    Didn't think of that, actually would be 5.

    Funnily, all round one matches yielded 5 points. Pool tables
    Ire v Aus being the only ones to share the spoils.

    Anybody know what the New Zealanders were singing as they clapped Hong Kong women off the pitch?

    From results against common opponents it would appear that New Zealand, England and France are all headed for the semis.

    Unless Ireland pull off a huge upset the fourth team for the semis comes down to the USA or Canada.

    Unfortunately my WiFi has died for the day so I can't catch the Canada vs. Wales high lights but Canada needed a fourth try bonus point. Did Wales step up their game?

    As I figure it Canada need to beat or tie New Zealand to advance or: If they stay within 7 and the US doesn't they may have the tie breaker.

    So, the question may be can the US beat, tie or stay within 7 of England.

    The US have three strengths: Blitz defense, big running forwards and strength in the deep three. But each of these has a downside. The blitz leaves a big hole behind the line that England have the skill to attack. The US forwards don't take the ball at speed and will be met mano a mano by the England blitz. The US deep three have size and speed but rely on fending off smaller players rather than evasion. They are big targets and don't off load in contact so they won't get the penetration they've been enjoying.

    A real US weakness that both Spain and Italy exposed is their scrum. They could be in real trouble there.

    Another weakness is their ball skills in traffic. Against Italy they turned the ball over constantly until they clamped down and just took the ball to ground on contact. They continued that plan against Spain. They'll need more than slow ball from rucks to get tries against England.

    I did get to see some of the France vs. Australia match.

    France stayed out of every tackle so had a Maginot line with numbers up on every Oz breakdown. However they never tried the Italian tactic of challenging the non-ruck offside line.
    So, is the mono-ruck law in effect for the WRWC?

    It could be possible that they are so used to referees asking them to stand behind the last man's foot in every tackle that they are not quite capable of exploiting the no-off-sides at the tackle.

    We see this day in and day out referees waving the players on side at a tackle.
