Match Commentary

82'Thank you and goodnight from ESPNscrum Towers.
81'Rob Bartlett's verdict from the stadium: "A wonderful advert for world rugby. With 10 minutes to go in effectively a dead rubber, both Japan and USA were playing as if it was the final. The second half began as frantic as the first -- how apt it was Goromaru, Japan's leading light in England, who kicked the 2000th point of the tournament. Amanaki Mafi continued his impressive showing on the world stage with a superb pick-up try from the driving maul, before Eric Fry's yellow card invited further Brave Blossoms' pressure on their try line. However, following Samu Manoa's seismic hit on Japan fly-half Kosei Ono, the Eagles kicked into life as Chris Wyles superbly finished a fine move for the side with 14 men. Goromaru, of course, had the final say with another cleanly struck penalty as the 2019 hosts left England with a third victory and, finally, a World Cup scalp over America. "
