    For mine:

    Pool B
    W Australia
    RU Wales

    Pool C
    W New Zealand

    V

    W Pool C New Zealand
    V
    RU Pool D Ireland WINNER


    W Pool A England
    V
    RU Pool B Wales WINNER

    W Pool D France WINNER
    V
    RU Pool C Italy


    Semi Finals

    W QF1 Australia - 10 WINNER
    W QF2 Ireland - 3

    W QF3 Wales - 21
    W QF4 France - 45 WINNER


    Final
    W SF1 Australia - 22 WINNER
    W SF2 France - 10

    South Africa to implode. England to be surprisingly good. Samoa to play extraordinarily.

    All Blacks to choke (as per tradition) but this time against Ireland at the QF stage. Graham Henry retires from all forms of coaching and any involvement in the game of Rugby immediately. This game will be hailed as one of the greatest ever by any team in the RWC excepting the finals wins by Australia in 91 and 99.

    France to put cricket scores against most opposition except for the Wallabies. Best games to be seen in the Pool stages ( South Africa imploding etc etc against England and Samoa).

    At the QF stage, Wales to get one over the old enemy, England, in a very entertaining yet spiteful match but peak to early and lose v the Frogges in the Semis.

    At the semi final stage, Ireland to lose out to the Wallabies in a dour affair played in atrocious weather conditions. One try scored for the Wallabies by Giteau in a moment of shear rugby genius. He will step 4 seperate players and score under the posts.

    Sounds good to me!
    I don't think that both South Africa and England will make the QFs but I'm not convinced yet which it will be to fold to Samoa.
    At this stage if pushed I would go for England not making it.

    Chook you actually have no idea mate, you are obviously so emerged in your little anti South Africa campaign that you do not realise that they are one of the most respected and strongest rugby sides in the world. Are you honestly saying that South Africa will loose to more than one of those nations in Pool A? The Boks demolished England earlier this year and defeated Samoa with a 2nd side. Wake up and realise that the Boks have every chance at taking out the RWC this year.

    Certainly won't be taking that post a face value.

    I think you'll find that England sent over their 'C' team....not even the die-hard opponents (or supporters) of English rugby would do them the honour of calling them a 'B' team (is that where SA got the idea from for their 3N away matches?!). Therefore, the results in that tour have no bearing on what may happen at the RWC.

    Other than that, some good comments & analysis by Chook.....although I don't agree with ITALY getting through in place of SCOTLAND as hopefully Scottish rugby has already hit rock-bottom and will now start the climb back to international competitiveness!!!!

    Wow - is that a pig flying past the window?!

    Shaun, emmersed, not emerged, lose, not loose. Otherwise very, very good.

    Let's hope that pruc will emerge with the same level of competence after emmersing himself in his studies, and not continue to lose himself in a loose world of spelling mediocracy.

    Yours pedantically,

    Fulvio

    Oh yeah, and chook's full of it.

    I actually wouldn't mind us coming second in the Pools, then we get to the other side of the draw from NZ and if we do end up playing them in the Final then two other Finalists will have had a crack already and we will have had our wake up from losing to assumably Wales.
    Stay tuned for what I said earlier though, I have an inkling that EITHER England OR South Africa will have a very tough time of getting out of the Pools.

    Chook nice cover up; but you are often very anti Springboks so it is basically impossible to tell. Coach have you ever heard of the saying "the pot calling the kettle black?"

    Damn I hate computers you can never tell if someone is being sarcastic, now im confused to as if Fulvio is taking the micky out of me

    Now that one is easy to work out - if the posters name is "Fulvio Sammut" then you are having the mickey taken out of you, which I believe can be enjoyable at times...
