NZ 13+ over Aussie in the final. Going to be the most dominant WC win in the history of the competition.

South Africa vs Australia final methinks, just cos it always seems to go wrong for the All Blacks.....

really have no clue what the Northern Hemisphere sides and Argentina are capable of this time round, all i really know about is Australia, NZ and South Africa, shocking on my part

long gone are the days of me as a 3 year old practising kicking for goal with Andrew Mehrtans, Michael Lynagh, Rob Andrews and Joel Stransky..

Opening Ceremony was pretty cool - thought saw it in fits and starts cause of trying to get my kids to bed.

First hit out by the ABs was pretty average but actually quite pleased with the result - '07 we thrashed everyone who came near in the pool and we know how that ended up. Need to keep our feet on the ground.

Japan having a fair crack against France. I think they have a pretty young squad with them to?

Wales vs South Africa...another top game!!

really enjoying this!

Early on i think i was disappointed with all the big teams, but after watching quite a few matches, they're all basically making basic errors so can't be as critical as i thought

getting sick of the AB's getting bagged about not dominating Tonga more.

evey1 selling Tonga short. Tonga played awesome and I cant see too many tier 2 teams playing with this kinda fire and fury despite being on the losing side. I'd rate this Tongan side better than the same side at the last WC where they beat Samoa and took the saffa's to wire in the quarters.

tonga should not be underestimated. AB's did well to put in some big hits of their own, but tonga played with the kind of passion and organisation that isnt prevalent in the pacific island cup.

tonga is a far better team than every1 realises. playing the AB's was not a good indicator to the world of how much better they are at this WC than @the pacificCup

i predict that tonga'll dismantle the French and move onto the quarters. isatolo maka has done something amazing with this team where they've kept their brutal savagery but also instilled a stickability to the game plan. good on them.

i hope these tongans arent better than manuSamoa but I have my doubts

DC's been ruled out of the Japan game. Slade will start, with Cowan coming onto the bench and Weepu providing first five cover.

What a game tonight. Ireland matching it with Australia.

South Africa VS Australia quarter final? Winner to take on NZ in semi? Hard road to the final for Southern Hemisphere teams.

did anyone else at the back of their minds think Ireland would actually beat Australia? i knew they would take it to them...but i thought Australia would have just held on....oh well my favourite rugby player is in the Irish team Smile

I'd picked Ireland in SuperBru but didn't really believe - even at halftime I thought it would only take 1 try from Aus to break the Irish resistance and they'd run away with it - but of course it never happened...

But really the defining moment was when Genia was carried back 10+ metres from a scrum like a wriggling tackle bag...

I am gutted that the Wallabies lost. Was really hoping for an all Southern Hemisphere final, ideally ABs V Wallabies. We're likely to have this final series now

NZL V ARG
SAF V AUS

IRE V WAL
ENG V FRA

One side of the fixtures is a lot stronger.

I don't reckon. Think Wales will win the quarter final, then either France or England will beat Wales.

All Blacks V France final. NZ to get redemption from '99 and '07.

All Blacks: Israel Dagg, Cory Jane, Conrad Smith, Ma'a Nonu, Richard Kahui, Dan Carter, Piri Weepu, Adam Thomson,Richie McCaw (capt), Jerome Kaino, Sam Whitelock, Brad Thorn, Owen Franks, Keven Mealamu, Tony Woodock. Reserves: Andrew Hore, Ben Franks, Ali Williams, Anthony Boric, Andy Ellis, Colin Slade, Sonny Bill Williams.

Good squad. Not sure why we have 2 locks in the reserves. Would’ve gone Boric to get game time and had Vito in there.
Mil’s has been ripped off. Just hope that Dagg is a good custodian and doesn’t screw up under pressure. That’s one thing I like about Mils, he hardly ever makes an error. Dagg has been known to over reach his abilities and I hope it doesn’t backfire. Still prefer Mil’s in the tight games.
Wow Cowan out completely. Suppose he’s a victim of Piri being able to cover 1st5.
Tight 5 are the best we have.
Vito missing from the loose trio but still a good mix. Thompson needs the game time.
Like the backline. That would be our best for the tournament.

Hey all, I'm new here so obviously didn't get to say this before hand... I tipped Wales v NZ final 2 weeks before the RWC started. SA beating Wales by 1pt doesn't give much chance of this happening now, or can it??

Anyone tipping SA under the line against Namibia tonight? I think it was set at around 59.5pts or something? Also looking at the Wallabies to struggle again against the USA and only win by 21-28pts or so, any support on that one also?
