Yay! Can't wait. Enjoyed watching the Bledisloe Cup last weekend.

Think Australia has a lot to do to be ready. Only names I heard were James O'Connor, Quade Cooper and HigginBOTTOM who should start each match but doesn't come on til later. Every one else surplus!

I personally have always supported the All Blacks (was in love with Zinzan Brooke as a teenager) so I'm happy! My 2nd team is Wales......ho hum. Since Graham Henry left and went home we've been getting more and more ordinary.........

NZ should win, but then they "should" have done many times before. England will make the semis. Aussies will be the unpredictable team nobody wants to face.

I would like to think England will do it again but it has to be New Zealand, I just cant see anyone touching them to be honest.

England were a totally unfit team last week against Wales clinging on grimly at the whistle, it will be a Southern Hemishere win and NZ will be in the final at least. Trouble is I won't be there to see it live.

Should be patriotic and say Wales, but in all honesty I think Oz will take it. Sorry guys, but as much as I love watching the Blacks, they'll probably bottle it as usual.

Maybe Robbie Deans is coaching the Wallabies to play like twats so he can lull everyone into a false sense, or maybe he's still firmly in the All Black camp. Either way they'll be lucky to make the semis.
I'll be supporting England, New Zealand & South Africa in that order with Australia firmly last preference just below the cheese eating surrender monkeys

Clearly none of you know a thing about Rugby.

Canada the mightiest nation on earth crushed the USA on the weekend.

I am backing a new order at the top of the RFU World.

Go Canada Go.

Then I'm going to wake up have my coffee and cheer on England.

New Zealend won't choke in their own backyard surely?

Ahahahahahaha. Canada have a handful of handy players, but they've got a bummer of a group, poor dears. Against France, Japan, NZ and Tonga I fear it will be a bit of a rout. They've beaten the Tongans twice before in the world cup ('87 and '03), but only managed a draw against Japan in the last tournament.

My heart says England, but my head says it'll be a southern hemisphere win. Sensible money will go on the boks.
