Hooker Andrew Hore believes the All Blacks can sort out the scrummaging flaws exposed by Tonga in the second half at Eden Park last Friday night. The Tongans put the heat on in the second spell of the All Blacks' 41-10 Rugby World Cup-opening victory, deliberately opting for a scrum from a 71st minute attacking free kick and Chiefs prop Sona Taumalolo scored as a result. It was pretty tough [out there],'' Hore admitted in Hamilton yesterday. But I think we'll close the gap up a little bit with our loosehead probably, but hope- fully we can sort that out this week.'' Former All Black prop Richard Loe called for a lot of hard work to be put in on the All Blacks scrum in a newspaper column yesterday, saying it had not been good enough against Tonga. But Hore said it would be disappointing if they didn't have some- thing to work on in the first week of the World Cup. Something we've prided ourselves on in the past is our scrum and hopefully we can get it back to the level it has been,'' he said. Meanwhile the All Black squad's third hooker Corey Flynn, who got only seven minutes off the bench against Tonga, remains hopeful of more game time this Friday night at Waikato Stadium against Japan but felt the Japanese performance in scoring 21 points against France on Saturday night might count against him. It was pretty good, pretty heated actu- ally. [Japan] threw everything into it and that's what the World Cup's about,'' Flynn said of Japan's 47-21 loss to the tournament fourth seeds after John Kirwan's team got to within four points in the second half to force France into an extra gear in the final 10 minutes. No 8 Victor Vito said the Japan per- formance was indicative of how the so- called minnows of the World Cup lifted themselves against higher seeded teams on such a big stage and the All Blacks' 145-17 win over Japan at the 1995 World Cup was consigned to history. The game hasn't just stopped at 95 and the results aren't the same. Everyone's now learning a lot of the time off the same sorts of coaches and getting the same game plans so it's getting tougher and tougher and it's our job to keep ahead really. The game's gone global and players are popping up from everywhere.'' Hore said a classic example was the presence of former All Blacks aerial skills and kicking coach Mick Byrne in the Japan camp as their forwards coach. The rugby game's truly gone global.'' Switched on Kiwis come out for cup Nearly every household in New Zealand tuned in to the first game of the Rugby World Cup, making it the biggest broadcast in our history. A total audience of 1.9 million watched the All Blacks versus Tonga match at some point during the game, a TVNZ spokeswoman said. Some of these people may have been sports-haters who only watched for a few minutes, but an average of 1.6 million watched the entire game. An audience of just over 1 million watched on TV1, 443,000 on Sky Sport 1, and a further 178,000 on Maori TV. This number does not include the delayed broadcasts on TV3 and other mediums. I would think that this might represent one of the highest rates of viewership for a major event in the host country anywhere,'' Rugby New Zealand 2011 chief executive Martin Snedden said. More than 1 million watched the opening ceremony on Friday. The previous accumulative record was the 2000 boxing bout between David Tua and Lennox Lewis, which drew 1.8 million people, the spokeswoman said. The 1981 royal wedding between Prince Charles and Princess Diana had similar viewing numbers. Until now, the All Blacks had not featured in the top 10 list.
