19:28 – Some cagey play from both Japan and France, but nobody has made the breakthrough in terms of a try. Seven points is the gap, 14 minutes left in the game.
19:20 – Japan piling on the pressure to the French, who don’t seem to know what has hit them. This match looks like it’s going to have a very close finish.
19:11 – 30 minutes to go in the France v Japan match, and it’s game on. Another breakaway try from the Japanese have closed the gap to 7, Japan 18 – 25 France.
Some choking on the croissants this morning, but in the end normal service resumed. Shame. But what a cracking game to peel open the eyelids to.
