Yeah, there's a lycee near our work so I sometimes bump into French people, back in the day my first placement out of uni was at a company in eastern France - I loved it. No rugby played up there though.

Confident Wales can beat them?

I reckon we can beat France but years of disappointing welsh games does make me not want to show too much confidence.

New Zealand - not sure- perhaps but I think we lack the depth. I think the welsh team are showing really excellent form and are keeping disciplined, which considering their youth is quite remarkable.

I am really looking forward to being there - already a welsh person in hamilton who I dont know has offered to take us to Auckland, we are meeting up wiht the Auckland welsh male voice choir and then another welsh person offered to take us back to Hamilton on Sunday to go and watch the Australia game - amazing. None of this was wiht any prompting and we said we had booked the bus but they seem very keen.

Oh dear - the welsh really do travel well!

I did actually put $100 on a 7 to 1 for wales to win today though. then got a $100 free bet so I guess I can keep it for some other great betting experience if we dont win.

What to do if we get through though - I cant believe I didnt book to go to this world cup - I have been to most of the last 2 but am going back to wales for christmas and thought we wouldnt get through!

I'm hoping for a NZ vs Wales final - for the good of the game.

But my allegiance has to be with the Wallabies now that England are out.

And if NZ kick out the Wallabies? You're lucky you don't have Kiwi in-laws - even Mrs Buzzy has started supporting Australia because of the Kiwis poor attitude towards the other teams and their supporters.

I have to support Wales, as OH is Welsh, though I will not be allowed in the same room when the game is on, as he gets too tense and excitable. If they win, I'll be able to watch the replay. He records it so he can watch it again and see the parts he missed due to shouting at the box!!!
