Well done to Georgia and hopefully they have highlighted areas to work on for England. I reckon the Saffies will mash Aus in the quarters and the All Blacks will then choke. My prediction of the Eye Gougers winning is still on.

When I come in from outside work to do a number two I often hum the French anthem...

Saffers to throw their game against Somoa?

NZ vs France next weekend will be very interesting as the two teams are evenly matched in this competition, yet the Kiwis, whose arrogance in this world cup is astounding, think they have the game in the bag.

France surely a bogey team for NZ? France beat them in key games in 2007 and 1999.

Interesting.....

Aye. we're going up to the Moutere Inn up the road to watch and stay over. Not sure how I feel about that TBH after being in the Italy V Russia crowd tonight. They just ain't nice are they & I don't mean the Italians or Russians.

I think France will rest a few key players for this one, they will be looking at the draw and quite happily finish second.

Could you elaborate about what happened in the crowd?

Kiwi's i find normally to be really nice people, but come Rugby time something happens and they transform into obnoxious one eyed idiots.

That's a beautiful part of the world around there, enjoy.

Yep I agree, except this time it's only a pool match, so I think NZ will walk it, as there is no pressure.
