I don't think England can win it, but they are definitely a team rises to the big occasion.

Good luck to 'em.

If anyone doesn't know / didn't realise, the RWC is on Aus WIN television for free! I'm impressed.

They are even screening the England / Argentina game.

We'll be watching Italy mate.


Under starters orders.

Mr BEVS predicts Tonga to score first but NZ to win by at least 20 to 25 points.

NZ have everything that is top ranking. Tonga have a lot of decent players all round the world so the actual time together spent as a team is very limited.

We've spent time in Tonga. Lovely people.

Yup, just the Western Civilisation Battlers Spec TV here (LCD, 2D, Less than 6ft wide, 2 Speakers, Sanyo).

We have considered getting Fox but we decided the spend the money on Gin instead.

I think it depends where we Aussies live. I believe it's currently being shown on GEM in Vic, SA and WA.

I guess the NRL is of more interest around these parts.

I'll start taking an interest when the excitement machine that is England take the field
