HA!

HA!!

I like this guy, he has a sense of humor.


Pool A: Australia & England
Pool B: South Africa & Scotland
Pool C: NZ & Argentina
Pool D: France & Ireland

QF1: South Africa v England = England
QF2: NZ v Ireland = NZ
QF3: France v Argentina = France
QF4: Australia v Scotland = Australia

SF1: NZ v England = NZ
SF2: France v Australia = France

Final: NZ V France = NZ

I think Pool B will be interesting. Samoa, Japan and the USA all have a chance to be take that second spot. Expect some good games between these countries.
Possible USA QF? maybe.

The South African v England will likely be a good game too, though low scoring.


That's my prediction. All pretty safe bets IMO. The All Blacks have been on form since the last world cup, we have a solid chance of retaining it.
If we don't make the QF tables will be flipped.

Yeah but they have a history of choking. How many WC's have they won, one?

Great teams though and always highly respected.

As an Aussie I have no hesitation of expressing my respect for my fellow Anzacs.

Fuck off bitch! When it comes to rugby it's not ANZAC, it's NZ and Australia.
Don't be trying to claim our victories like you did at the last Olympics with that "Australasian medal count" shit you guys pulled because we had more medals than you. Tongue

Twice. Both times we were the host.

Once when we weren't the hosts we were likely to win (Rampaging Jonah) but come the final half the team came down sick the night before.

Once there was a young ref who killed us in the semis with blatant biased reffing.

Once there was a fiery French team that threw us off our game plan and we couldn't cope.

I wouldn't say the all blacks choked. knockout tourney's are always hard to win, no team has 100% win record, and away games are always difficult and sometimes there are factors other than the skill of the team.

RE: Rugby World Cup 2015
Jassus, no one likes SA Sad Mind you we've sent probably our weakest team in years, saddled them with a bunch of crap about politics, the press has already crucified them, they've lost all except one of their preparation games and basically the coach is gonna be fired unless he wins the World cup. Not exactly ideal preparation.

Dodgy I'll watch the matches but I don't hold out much hope. The headline in the paper the other day was something along the lines of "Most prepared team has rarely won the world cup"... so like, are we playing a long game? Giving ourselves an edge by our shambolic preparation? Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck Rolleyes

NZ have made an artform of peaking form and then wilting before major competition. This year will be no different.

I don't know, I think they're dead certain for the semis and almost certain for the final. Unless some team has a really good day the Kiwis will always be hard to beat.

NZ's latest peak has lasted about 10 years.

Done

btw, do you have any opinion on the current RFU President, Jon Dance?
