Do these commentators not realise that Hurrell is playing with the number 4 on his back on the right side?

Could be a long night for Scotland. Good early defence but still can't hold them out.

Gutted to see Shayne Hayne reffing a game. He's always been a ref who likes the sound of his own whistle.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Sorry, another boring observation but the fans behind those sticks look miles away from the action.

Super human effort for the try by Matty. Sad to see the Tongan go off injured.

Danny Addy has shown some nice footwork so far which has made the Tonga defence look pretty ordinary at times.

There is a speedway track around Derwent Park.The Town End terrace is a fair distance from the pitch,,the Derwent End behind the Tonga goal is a grass bank

Perhaps your right Chris but they haven't cracked yet! They seem to be playing their own game, unlike Ireland.

This ref is a moron. Blowing his whistle too often and shouting too much. What the hell is wrong with him?

Yep, could be an upset on the table. I think Tonga will score once or twice before the half time break and the second half will be a one-sided affair. Who knows though
