I wish Japan well - but Scotland are an attacking team like Japan. Unlike SA they won't attempt to bring the hammer to the contact area, which was part of where SA got it so wrong. The Japanese style (with all their Kiwis and Ono at 10 ( who is actually a Kiwi as well) has not actually hanged much under Jones - they are a bit more accurate and a bit fitter, but the fast-paced style has been present really since rugby went professional in Japan. And that style is perfect for Scotland. I can Scotland winning this game quite comfortably. Japan will go on to beat the USA and against Samoa it will depend on whether they pick their strongest players or not. A full strength Samoa will be too strong for Japan.

rush can be bought in most hunting/trapping stores. Anywhere where you would purchase cyanide for pest control. It's kind of important to have access to it.

actually Australia have walked away from the deal already and founding country NZ are set to leave if recalcitrant dairy countries like Canada, Japan and the US seek to continue their inefficient, protection rackets.

Such a festering wound for Japan.... the only way Japan will ever live down the crippling shame of their heinous past is to confront it with honesty, admit their culpability and make full reparations.

people forget the culpability of the Police here too. Police should never pursue criminals at high speed when that action can endanger the lives of innocent bystanders. Had the police taken the car's licence number and discontinued the pursuit it is likely that student would still be alive today. The police are not able to control the actions of drunks (or whomever) fleeing at high speed, but they can regulate their own unsafe practices.
Likely this will not even be considered an issue in this revenge-justice society.

this is a s disaster for the world's premier rugby competition. It has been continually diluted with ever increasing numbers of weak team - now 2 more easy beats. It's getting to the point where we'll only watch the NZ/ SA games and the finals series. Who needs to see a Japanese team being thrashed 100 points by Canterbury for goodness sake!

How utterly appalling to the Japanese consumer who continues to suffer at the hands of japan's archaic and anti competitive market protection. Nz could supply butter to counter all of this shortage. Roll on the TPP!

It took shrewd guidance by NZ's best government in a generation to bring this huge money-maker to NZ. Amazing that the partisan and naïve in godzone argued against having the movies made here...

Of those 3 storage mediums there is actually a correct answer: CDs. The cycles of discreet sound they use are far greater than a human ear can discern and so provide the best listening experience for the majority of music listeners. Whilst it is true that the analogue technology of vinyl provides a truer representation of the music, the equipment needed to realise that representation AND the fragile state of the medium (always degrading) make it a choice really only extreme, high-end listeners. Mp3s are a con - they provide a fraction of the actual recorded sound and our brains just fill in the rest.
Several posters above mentioned a number of better mediums (if less readily available)

well done NZ. Massive respect for this NZ government - easily our best leaders in 3 decades
