RWCs are knock out tournaments and as such get played a bit differently - psychology comes in - it is not - not a Super 14 contest. Even if many finals are decided by drop kicks due to their tight nature.

Anything can, and will happen. I think it will be one of SA, NZ and France and maybe Australia - because Australia knows how to win but their scrum is dodgy. I don't think England can do it at all unless they scrummage off the park and get some good decisions and a lot of luck and cannot be serious contenders like the aforementioned.

This time in 2003 there was a lot of whining about how England couldn't score tries which was utter crap - between 2000 and 2003 it was all England were doing. Now they are crap at scoring tries.

I never realised he was an army bod.....


He doesn't play any more, injury took care of that, and has moved into our village, he is obviously doing well as he paid £2.2 millions for his house!!


I think he is an investment banker now.

Well as we all know the Rugby World Cup starts this week, so I've put together a wee spreadsheet for us all to follow it.

The matches are being shown in Australia on Channel 10, the match times on the spreadsheet are Victorian times, so residents of other states may have to make adjustments.

We will probably record most of the matches and watch them first thing the following morning, as so many start during the wee hours.

Enjoy!

Buzzy
Excellent. Thanks

Dublin 1991 - ABs favourites. Look what happened.
Jo'burg 1995 - ABs were by far and away the outright favourites. Lomu was this great sensation. Look what happened.
London 1999 - ABs were cruising against France, absolutely destroying them. Look what happened. This is one if the best games of rugby I've ever seen btw.
Sydney 2003 - ABs again favourites. Look what happened. They handed England the WC that's what happened.

On the big day the ABs choke. The history is there for all to see.

Chokers.
What r u talking about? Sydney 2003 ? England's 2nd team would have beaten anybody. England were favourites by a mile.

ABs were favourites in their semi against the Wally-bies and they blew it.
Could the Poms have beaten the ABs in the final?
