France have a chance tonight given they will have a big crowd getting behind them.  If they can get the crowd involved while the match is tight they can win.  Samoa are big and physical but they are not same class as Kiwis.

 

England will have too much for both these opponents so not worried about either of them.

 

However, from a selfish point of I want Samoa to win so I can see them again at HJ in QF.  But from another perspective I think England v Samoa will be a better/closer match(than France without a home crowd) and given it is on BBC with an evening ko I would like that to be a competitive match to showcase RL to a potentially new audience.  I think Samoa will be a better TV spectacle to help produce more impressive viewing figures.

Having bought tickets for the Warrington quarter final on Saturday - HJ 50 still worked - I would love to see a match between Samoa and Fiji. However for the sake of the game in France, I hope they put up a good performance tonight.

How wonderful it is to see an all-too-rare properly marked out field in the World Cup!  I sure wish you Brits would get your act together in that department like the French, Aussies and Kiwis.

I am not sure that France are going to win but I expect to see France making up some distance with Samoa from the previous World Cups as described above.

'Pfeeeeep' went the monoglot southern hemisphere referee's 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.

France need to throw it around and go to the edges because they won't make metres through the middle. It's going to be a tough 1st half for France whilst they're playing against the wind.

Amazing that Samoa are allowed to drive the man back, when France are told to get off before they even complete the tackle.

I really want Samoa to win to set up a Samoa v Fiji clash at Warrington, but I don't want France to be a disappointment to their fans yet again.

 

Another on-report, seems that Southern Hemisphere refs are as cowardly as ours.

Pitfully weak refereeing so far.

Late, off the ball hits, targeting the 7 - he should be protected from this.

That's got to be a red card, surely?
