I have a funny feeling England is going to turn the Aussies over ....on balance the English pack looks bigger and more mobile and for once the Aussie's have the old men up front ...24-10 to England

Its a good brand of whacky....

Watched the game this morning (found its airing live of espn360 here in the USA).....:curse::curse::curse::curse::curse::curse ::curse:

England had a great chance in the first half to post some points, but looked disorganised close to the line.After that:curse::curse:

They picked out Gleeson as a weak defender and they were right Price and Garderner were working overtime in the first half to plug the gaps left by him....take Price out and put in McGuire and your in big trouble as the lad carn't tackle a fish dinner let alone an Aussie

Maybe next time

I honestly still think we can beat them but its obvious that we will still only be able to win the odd match here and there - that being said I'd rather beat them in the final then a pool match

,so did i before the tournament started,but they seem light years ahead of us still.The annoying thing was we never showed any bollocks when we were getting stuffed,i copped shitloads down the pub from the Aussies,i have to say i felt ashamed of our team!!The world cup looks maybe a step too far for the likes of Wellens,Senior,Gleeson and Pryce.Cant really see how we can turn it around without the aid of drugs !!

If we get to the final we will have played 2 tough games against the Kiwis hopefully winning a confidence boosting semi final - In contrast the Aussies will have had 2 walk over games and will assume they just have to turn up to win.

The humilation of the last game will have the boys up for it adnd hopefully they can get to half time within cooey instead of switching off - then who knows

I Know what u mean as my in laws(who I am going to the final with) are both Aussies and now reckon the Kiwis will raut us as well - God I'd love to shock them in the final

Wonder If God has a sense of humour - if he did an England Victory over the Aussies in the last minute would be heaven sent
