Hmmmm says the 'Aussie' lol
I'll take that with a pinch of salt.
I will do my usual and root for the underdog unless It's my own nation or an adopted nation.

Is that cool?

Nah. I was into football(soccer). We can't even make it to the WC though. We suck at that sport.

Wilkinson turned the majestic tackle game of rugby into an AFL/Gaelic football kicking game.

Previous Tournament Winners: (Finalist)

2011 - New Zealand (France)
2007 - South Africa (England)
2003 - England (Australia)
1999 - Australia (France)
1995 - South Africa (New Zealand)
1991 - Australia (England)
1987 - New Zealand (France)

That's 2 wins for New Zealand, South Africa, Australia, and only 1 for England. Strange that France, Australia, New Zealand, and England have all reached 3 finals, but France have not won it once.

Rugby's my fav sport where you can get sent off for talking back to the ref - (football please note).

I think Wales may surprise. The problem that New Zealand has is that they are favourites. Will they be able to cope with this level of expectation? They may be too overconfident.

Here are the highlights of the first match where England beat Fiji

www.rugbyworldcup.com...

My prediction for the Pool stages for the quarter finals is...

Pool A = England and Wales (sorry Australia) - this is the toughest Pool
Pool B = South Africa and Samoa (sorry Scotland)
Pool C = New Zealand and Argentina
Pool D = Ireland and Italy (sorry France)

Very exciting game, japan put in so much effort, they really deserved that win.

As for the springboks, they're on a bit of a losing streak so perhaps they won't win the WC.

The Japan win against SA was more than just a good game or unexpected result.... it was amazing.
The emotion, tension... atmosphere. It was incredible and moving and exhilarating.
It showed the power of the human spirit and teamwork and not giving up and taking the easy way out.

The crowd and players let out a collective "cry" at the end... it was beautiful.

It was up with with some of the best sporting moments IMHO.

Amazing.
