Georgia made very heavy weather of their game against Portugal in Tbilisi. Portugal played a very effective defensive game against a side that struggled to dominate.
Romania ran out comfortable winners against Spain. Some comments..
’Haven't seen the entire match, just the second half, but as a summary:
-for the first time we [Romania] managed to mix our game up; 3/4 played surprisingly well despite we scored 4 tries using the maul
-our scrum was a bit shaky, but after 20 minutes or so the Spanish were lifted up
-obviously the Spain's hammering over Russia wasn't a fluke, they are way better then last year
-few spectators I don't know how many ‘

Germany lead Russia 22-15 with 22 minutes to go and suddenly the flood gates opened. Russia’s fitness was superior in those last 15 minutes and Germany simply collapsed. Those who saw the game say this was a much better display by Germany excluding that last quarter.
