Quote of the day: "The Duke of Cambridge is an avid (Wales) supporter and it was good to see him in the changing room after the Fiji game. He is going to support Wales and hopefully if he can influence his brother Harry to put on a Welsh shirt, that will be great to see as well." - Wales coach Robin McBryde hopes Prince Harry will switch allegiance and back Warren Gatland's men now that England cannot make the quarter-finals.

Tweet of the day: "Looking forward to ending #RWC2015 off with a bang tomorrow! #CANvROM #REDNATION #Can" - @RugbyCanada look forward to their Leicester showdown against Romania on Tuesday.

Moan of the day: " This #Lancaster witch hunt is absurd. #Eng lost because #Aus had better rugby players. End of. It was nobody's fault #RugbyWorldCup" - ‏@DavidGregJones.

Stat of the day: Japan's 26-5 victory over Samoa in Milton Keynes was watched by 25million people in the Land of the Rising Sun, a new World Cup record for the country.
