So who will win the World Cup ?

New Zealand for me
Not exactly a risky pick there 64, .......but perhaps they're not looking as invincible as in previous years.

On their day Aus, SA, England, Ireland and Wales (France ??) can beat anyone (although Wales never beat the All Blacks) but it's still hard to see past NZ.

Head says NZ, but heart says England

Residency rule. If a player lives in a country for three years they are eligible to declare for that nation once they haven’t represented the country of their birth, it’s to change to 5 years next year. Most teams have 2/3 players like this in their squad. South Africa are probably the only country with none.

Ireland looked very impressive against Scotland.

England v Tonga has been a good, hard-fought contest so far.

Very impressive from the Irish Harry, missed all but the last ten minutes as we were out doing our weekly grocery shop

England coasting it now. 18-3

Yes England now well on top. Not quite got their passing and ball-handling right when they use their backs, otherwise the gap would be even bigger.

Great win for Ireland today. I belive the last year, where we’ve been below par, all our focus has been on peaking for these few weeks.
I still think England are the team to beat if they can keep Vunipola and Tualagi fit.
