    Nice work!

    It's a pity NZ aren't playing France - I think the AB's might have struggled with that...

    I agree arg. v fra. is going to be a great match. France may appear strong, but I think their solid result was due more to the ozzies having an off day rather than the strength and organization of les bleus.

    The pomms are going to beat the ozzies and france is going to struggle to eek out a win or they will lose big. It's going to be interesting to see the battle for fourth play out for the next 3 weeks. The pomms really only need one big win from here out and its their's, but the french are playing lesser opponents which seems to ensure a loss. :deal

    Anywho, gracias for the thread Wildy. Hopefully I will get back with further prognostications before the weekend.:freaky

    Wales go 0 for 2 versus Argentina and Samoa. That's going to cost Howley his job and with the ABs and Aussies to come, it ain't going to get easier.

    Huge result for Samoa:clap I've got to disagree with Wildman, I think Wales over Aussie. Samoa beat Aussie's last year and they have only gotten better. Wales vs AIG AB's...now that is a different story:lol3

    Wow i did not see this one coming. However, I do agree with chich that the welsh will beat the ozzies.

    Speaking of the ozzies they will lose tomorrow by about 15 points. The meat eaters will easily handle the scots and the real Meat Eaters (cause if you've been to Arg you know that's all that goes on there) will lose narrowly to Les Bleus.

    The US is going to play Tonga fairly close as well, possibly eek out a victory.

    Merde! Eng. 14:20 Aus.

    Piss-poor attitude shown for most of the match by a lazy England team; only Care seemed to be up for it. Illustrated by the change bringing on Launchbury and Vunipola who simply wanted to show what they could do and raised the pace for England. We're missing Corbisiero, Hartley, Lawes, Croft and Morgan up front and Foden too but you can't rely on always having your best guys fit.

    That is a shocker!! I may have to watch that game when it gets posted. I haven't kept up with Eng injuries, but if you basically have a B side out there not a bad result except for RWC positioning.

    You would think that with Fra up 24-13 against Arg at half time I would be predicting a big win, but I still stand by my prediction of les bleus winning a close one.

    On a bright note the irish had a good one today and Italy held the ABs to less that 50.:clap

    Love to know when England will start winning (the big games that is) and stop 're-building'.

    Looks like Quade Cooper is headed to Loig...as much as a douche nozzle as he is still a loss for Rugby and the ARU. Im worried about Beale and JOC not wanting to stick around with Deans at the helm. I also think we are going to see Wales play the ABs pretty close, backs against the wall.

    Not yet. Good day for the southern hemisphere. Except the Argies.

    To be fair, the Aussies looked awful, and the Jaapies were lucky.
    As for Scotland...

    Not to change the subject, but how will the placement for the next RWC be handled. I understand that 1-4 at the head of the pools, but are 5-8 placed in reverse order so Fra and Eng will be in the same pool? Just curious if anyone knows for sure. If I have understood correctly these rankings for the top 12 teams will be used to set up the pools for the next RWC on Dec. 3rd with final two in each pool to be added later.

    Was pleased with our play against Romania. Was surprised to see Argentina get manshamed by Ireland. Shocked that Hansen does not have Hore booked back to NZ after his disgraceful act, 6 week ban minimum.
