    place your bets here fellas. we might need somewhere to chat about the competition too.

    have the ab's got the mental toughness and stamina? i'm not putting the house on it. between england, ireland, wales, a bolter like south africa and maybe 1 or 2 upsets it going to be a nail biter i reckon.

    can reido and the troops git 'er done? i'd love to think so. but when you've been on top of the pile this long there's only one way to go.

    AB's v Poms final.

    Competition will be stiffer this time compared to 2015 but I'm backing the boys to pull off the win :D Our biggest threat is injury especially to Richie or Bodie or (heaven forbid) both of em. Lots of folks pickin SA will win on Saturday...not the end if they do, but I'm pickin they won't :nono

    caught the ab/sa contest on a big screen in a pub up here in tokyo last night. great first up contest by both sides. there were only a couple of [justin marshall] micro moments the difference i reckon.

    who else can beat the south africans so we dont have to do it twice?

    Great game alright. At least the yarpies have the same less than challenging pool games as us to prepare for the sudden death matches. I'm not underestimating the Poms to pull out some big games, SA may have to beat them before they get another chance at us. Awesome tournament so far.
