World Cup round-up

If Ireland are to still be in the World Cup after tomorrow’s game against Argentina they must win by 8 points and score at least 4 tries against a Puma side that has yet to concede a single try in this campaign. Meanwhile England will face the favoured Australians in their quarter-final game after holding their nerve to go past Tonga 36-20. Wales, though, are gone. They trailed Fiji 25-10 at half-time and, despite a thrilling second-half come-back, the Fijian’s deservedly held on to win 38-34 in a great overall game. And, currently lying second in their table, tonight Scotland take on Italy kick-off at 8.00pm. Live commentary here Half-time Scotland 12 – 10 Italy. But Italy have the only try so far. Full-time Scotland 18 – 16 Italy. Scotland go through by surviving on penalties.
