Just hope Japan’s momentum isn’t allowed to fizzle out. They’ve been a breath of fresh air, be great if a way can be found to incorporate them into tier one rugby more often than every four years at the World Cup.

Wales don't stand a chance unless they get their act together, the world cup has come 12 months too late for them. England won't be embarrassed, but will make 2 mistakes early on and never quite chase the win down.


NZ will batter SA in the final, like they did in their first game. 


No one has looked as sharp or clinical as NZ. Shame really, I hate the Haka and how long it goes on for now, I've seen shorter west end plays. :unsure:

She got New Zealand, South Africa, Wales. I got Australia and Scotland. It was not a good draw.


But at least I didn't shit on my slim chances by elbowing her in the face, like Vahaamahina.
