Let's have a little game - how many points are the All Blacks going to score tomorrow against Tonga? My guess = 74

Well they will struggle to get 50 at this point, 34-3 with 10mins left.

Yep, 41-10 is never a bad score but was expecting the ABs to start with a bit more of a flourish. Didn't get to watch the game but from the BBC live text the second half seemed pretty disappointing after the first. Job done though I suppose.

i'm not holding my breath.

perhaps web streaming video coverage?
Look at sports.yahoo.com for streaming video info........NBC's networks are supposed to be showing some of the World Cup matches, but I am not sure which matches and when. I'm sure they'll have some of the later rounds.

An amazing effort from the smaller rugby nations, Romania almost upsetting Scotland, Nambia going decent against Fiji and Japan giving France a fright for 70 mins. Awesome cup so far. England beating Argentina in a great game to finish the night

Todays results:

Scotland 34 Romania 24
Fiji 49 Nambia 25
France 47 Japan 21
England 13 Argentina 9

I've only very recently discovered Rugby (watched different games of the 2011 Six Nations Championship and loved it) and am now very curious to see the World Cup games. A wonderful sport, really .

How unlucky Wales were against the world champions South Africa they lost by 1 point but they were the better team and deserved to win, so unlucky well played Wales.

^^^ Yep, Wales are my second team (I lived there for a few years, so I saw how much more their rugby team means to them than our, generally better team means to us) so I was gutted to see them be so close yet so far (again - they've lost so many games against top opposition by <5 points in recent years). Great game though, best I've seen of the tournament so far. Good for the game I suppose to see the bigger teams not so far putting 60+ points against the smaller ones as often used to be the case.

I think its great a lot of the lesser teams are performing very well, no thrashings so far, its good for rugby and makes for an interesting tournament.
