Aki while shown great ability has always shown he can be a serious liability.

State of the rte commentary. Wanted red for Samoan hit on Stockdale, saying there's no mitigation when Stockdale clearly fell into the tackle. Then they want only yellow for Aki and start inventing the Samoan falling into the tackle despite the fact it was clearly Ali's hit that flattened him.

If Stockdale is a few inches smaller the first is a red but the Aki call was right.

Very unfortunate though you can see how it happened.

This is going to be another stutter to the finish line!

If you get 8 tries do you get 2  bonus points?

On the new high tackles, could you not fabricate a yellow/red card by just taking the hit and running into a players shoulder?

Only get the one for the 4.

I can see Sexton coming off although I think he should play at least another 10-15 minutes.

Will Ireland top the group if the game tomorrow (looking more likely now) is cancelled?
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

No. Japan will also be on 16 and will win the h2h

I can see why itís given but the Samoan player has a slightly unnatural body shape as if heís about to try a sidestep and is lower than expected and Aki steps rather than runs into the tackle. I donít see it being much worse than the Lamb one

It's one of those tackles that is open to interpretation. However to me Aki didn't do enough to go down low. The speed they were going at each other didn't help but you still need to be aiming low in the tackle.

I think Scotland should get to play the game even if it is behind closed doors in another part of the country. World Rugby should have considered this when they awarded Japan the WC.

That being said, Scotland signed off on the tournament rules. That is a legal agreement. If Scotland are given the chance to play the  game it is going to piss Italy off.

The whole thing is a sham.

Look at the two tackles. The Samoan lad was bent over 90 degrees or more. Barely possible to do anything more to avoid contact with the head. Aki didn't.

Both decisions correct.
