FFS. Took ages to come to a bleedin obvious decision re Kalamfoni.
Watson on his knees, tackled with a wrapped arm on the chest. Nowt wrong... other that he's an an islander so presumed guilty

Actually I think Williams is having great game.

I completely agree actually.
Just that one frustrated me as it took the TMO Soooooooo long. Just somehow doubt it would have had so many rechecks if it had been Kieran Reed.

Need to pull our finger out to get the try bonus point.

Could be important if we beat France but lose to Argentina.

Would have been red if he'd playing for Leicester...

Said was injured in the commentary. Was warming up on pitch pre-match apparently.

Generally agree ref had a good game, though I think he missed several Tonga obstructions in the first half. Perhaps that tactic is not considered illegal in NZ....
Also agree on England sloppiness. I'm not sure what Lawes brings to the table since he stopped late tackling fly halves. Kruis and Itoje, who I thought was the best forward on the pitch, seem a far more balanced combination. Bit worried about May - was it a hamstring injury?
