Hmmm, I do think England are not playing their best. But I also think other teams are not playing their best either. I'm going for an England win, but it may come down to another lucky kick from Johnny (if he's fit)

I would love England to do it. I reckon NZ will cack it again. The saffies might do it if they give their first team some match fitness.

I hope England grind out another win.

It won't be pretty but it will pee Aus & NZ off royally.

Can't say I'm a big follower of the game but I'm looking forward to it.

Johnny Wilkinson knocking in another drop goal to win would be the icing on the cake. Any team with a half decent pack will smash the wallabies.

It's going to be the usual suspects down to the last four ain't it....

Oz, NZ, SA and England....heart says England, but don't think we've got the depth and fitness...and after them, don't care who scrapes it together.

Think Argentina and France might put up a bit of a fuss and make things interesting though as outsiders not to be over looked.

Good like to see the US not do shit though, then at least it'll get some more tv coverage over here

OH is a Wales supporter. I'd like England to win, but like many think the northern hemisphere has had its day. I'd also like Japan to do well, but NOT the Americans- they already think they are the best at everything. Are they bringing cheerleaders along?

Along with the usual retorts along the lines of 10 man rugby which did not apply then...although, England has sort of reverted back to it since...a few blokes being the exception...

New Zealand for me.

14-9 Australia - S Africa last night.

Remember, the World Cup is a knockout tournament.

And I can't see S.A. doing well on peformances like that.

Although last WC they lost 3 out of 4 tri-nations games before the tournament and still won the WC... with a little help from France & England.
