New Zealand team holds the record for the highest Rugby mega event score. Rugby Championship scores refresh automatically without The Rugby World Cup has exploded over the boiling moment officials appeared to look the other way when a Wallabies star knocked out a rival.
Japan - a country thrown into chaos by Typhoon Hagibis just 24 hours ago - complete the perfect Pool A aet to go through to the last eight as winners. The Brave Blossoms are living right up to their name here with some heroic defending.
They are absolutely deserving of their place in the quarter final.
Scotland win a scrum five metres from the line. Just when it needed something special. Scotland starting to tire. Japan know that was a huge moment.
Japan have stifled the Scots fightback and are back in possession with a structure that looks like they will get over the line. Players involved in a rammy in the Japan half. They need to understand they have 10 minutes to get the objective in their minds and not allow Japan the chance to break up their momentum.
This is NOT what they need. But Scotland have the momentum.
The hosts are within sight. Is there enough time to pull off the miraculous? Two more tries basically. Plenty of time. But they have to keep the back door shut.
It really is a barnstormer. Suddenly Scotland are just seven points away from their hosts. Finn Russell again showing his ability as he did the legwork to feed George Horne and in turn allow Jonny Gray to offload to sub Fagerson.
He drags the ball over the line and Laidlaw as always adds the extras. Pipe up lads! Scotland supporters have been given renewed belief thanks to that Nel score.
Listen closely enough through the Japanese hysteria and you can just make out the sound of bagpipes in the stands. Rallying the troops for a monumental push in the final 25 minutes. Nel gives Scots hope Hope?
Laidlaw converts as per. First time Scotland got into the Japan 22 since the eighth minute.
Can there possibly be another twist in this sensational encounter? It comes after Harris is robbed of the ball near halfway allowing the fleet-footed Fukuoka to run home for a second try. They have to overturn a point deficit and win by eight points without conceding any more tries.
No small matter.
