I am, but watching them all on replay rather than live, apart from the England games.

Aus Fiji was great for the first 60 or so minutes, NZ SA also very entertaining throughout. Not seen the France game yet as I had the score ruined for me so might just go for the extended highlights.

Enjoying the Tonga game. First time I've watched a game of rugby in ages!

At least if it was cancelled Scotland could’ve pretended they might have had a chance of winning!

That was a brilliant game. Glad it went ahead. By far the game of the tournament.

All the quarters are looking tasty fixtures.

It'll hopefully be a great weekend of rugby next weekend.

England vs Australia should be a cracker and that Wales/France match could be a classic if France show up.

England played really well and after the first 10 minutes I could never have predicted that scoreline given Australia had 90% possession.

Looking forward to the Ireland match next.

England were good (lost the all at breakdown too much like) but the aussie decision making was odd

TMOs don't seem to be able to spot forward balls in these quarter finals.

They've been on about adding more nations in for a while - Georgia for one. I don't see why not, just more rugby at the end of the day. Or invite a random international team to take part every year.

Hoping England can pull off an upset tomorrow, but New Zealand are just another class. I have a sneaky feeling Wales will beat South Africa though.

My prediction at the start was a Wales-NZ final.
