You never know - I reckon New Zealand haven't had much of a taste for 'knock-out' rugby lately.

Question is - would they dare have an attack of the collywobbles in front of their own supporters? After all, Dan Carter is out

Is the expectation level of the kiwi public so high they will blow it under the pressure?

To everyone who said England: "WRONG!"
To everyone who said Ireland (including me): "WRONG!"

Heigh ho. Well, at least we've won 6 golf Majors in the last few years.

Well you can't acuse the ref of bias - he was pinging the French in the second half - and in the end it was still the handling.

Flood flicked at least 2 balls nowhere in particular after breaking the line...

It was a great game but the score-line is a bit flattering for England as they were never really in it. England's usually solid defence was not there in the 1st half. France's 2 tries were soft but England had to work hard for theirs.

Wales were awesome.

Well - you never know... only when all the matches have been played will we find out. Think its unlikely (myself) that there'll be any other winner than New Zealand.

I just noticed in the last few World Cups that they lost matches when they were expected to win

Dare I just say that the performance of the English team was disappointingly rubbish?

Though France did play quite well.
