Early score update from BBC website says Tonga 5-0 up

Hopefully someone actually watching the game can keep us up to date

I have a narrow victory to Japan on SG chin

Japanese handling is awesome. Some beautiful little inter passing moves. I think this could end up quite a high scoring and one of the most entertaining games of the tournament.

Japan with a very well worked try from a bit of sloppy handling from Tonga. 12-10

Japan try 12-10

Annoying that the commentator keeps saying "passes to Leitch, the New Zealander" or the Australian

Japan the only team to have not been ahead at any point in any of their games in RWC so far, apparently.

Some superb rucking work there from Japan to earn a penalty in front of the posts. only problem now is who's going to kick it

Nobody scores tries like the Japanese do. Its lots of fun I only wish they were better at the basics. Funny they dont seem to register much in sevens you would have thought it would suit them.

Just noticed how small the Japanese number 8 is. He makes Shane Williams look like Lomu

no no no.

it was a sporting appraisal.

Their scrum half is the smallest bloke in the tournament, but by god he's fast.

Everyone in the repairs room watching just went HHmmmmmmm seeing a double movement on that last 'try'
