I said when we played [Japan] that the score [41-7] wasn’t a true reflection of the game
and if you listen to the recording I said that if we manage to get through to the quarterfinals I was pretty sure that we might play Japan?
I always thought Japan was a realistic contender for getting through to the quarterfinals and if they beat Scotland now they can end the top of the pool,
and if we manage to beat Italy then it is a realistic option that we’d be playing Japan ? or a scary option!
