Oops...bit tired there... It's a matchup we haven't seen so much as the old Australian ones!

So any mid week news on injuries and the like?

And what are the thoughts about the quarter match ups?

Ireland v Wales, don't care, just nice to see a home nation make it through for sure and they've both played pretty well.

Aus v SF...well the Bok have to have it, Aus lost to Ireland and the Russians put 3 tries past them, which says a lot really...

NZ v Argentina, well no pressure on the Pumas which has to help them and if they play their A game, they've a good chance of beating the chokers, who can easily do a France on the kiwi's, who have to have a fair bit of home pressure on their side to not be shit.

England v France, well both have played pretty shit rugby, but I still can't see England losing to France when it counts and of all the nations still in it, it would suck the most to lose to them wouldn't it really.

As the kick offs are 1am and 3:30am for me....not sure yet if I'll get up to watch them live, so I'll be avoiding this thread for a bit, just in case

Come on England!

And go on, Wales too
