new zealand can always choke and 24 years must be pressing hard on them but if mccaw and carter stay fit then cant see anyone beating them but who knows. if they fail then i feel its between us and the aussi's which would be interesting as we beat them with style last autumn alas youngs and ashton aren't looking as good and there are too many utility players in the squad in my mind to win. but who knows johnson will be able to talk them through every step and that experience is valuable.

Dunno where I said/showed I knew about Rugby. I just said England seem to step it up at the WC's which is actually the case for the last 2. If you're going to troll I beg you please learn how too first or you're just going to be wasting your own time with poor troll attempts. And I am a Beckham's bum boy. But if we carried on talking about my true love then it would be off topic. Maybe we can have this chat in message and I can tell you all about his firm body and him being aesthetic and all :P

Would obv like to see England win it, but don't think it will happen despite playing quite well as of late. Unfortunately All Blacks on home soil and playing very well in recent games. Australia will be a force as well since it's nearly home soil as well and playing well recently. I'd say we're probably the long shot/most likely to upset NZ or Australia. *fingers crossed*

Just watched the Japan/France match... Scoreline looks like France dominated, but there was a long spell that they could have been down to a good Japan side. Was an absolutely crazy match for some time there. Maybe not the best rugby, but was enjoyable to watch nonetheless.

France are always good to watch because you never know if they are going to be superb or terrible. As with today, they can be both in a single match.

Japan looked good today If they had an easier group they looked like they could of got through to the quatar finals, just a shame they ran out of steam towards the end

halftime in england/argentina game... they've been putting some serious pressure on us and we've given away far too many penalties. We are better than this :/ Luckily, we've demolished some argentinian players so that should help if anything -_-

England rlly should have played better there against argentina.

btw, is there something wrong with the kickers or something? Both Dan Carter, Wilkinson and Patterson seem to have trouble kicking the ball through the poles ...

This all-black strip reminds me of the curse of the grey away kit of England FC.

It's a cool strip, but going all black in NZ is asking for a jinx. P much proved a jinx with how we performed. I mean, even our numbers couldn't stay on the strip! XD

should just stick with the home strip. I will be watching as much as I can and still maintaining some level of balance between sleep/work/sport games both on TV and playing IRL.

apparently the kicking problem is something to do with the pitch because it is brand new

Eh, maybe... still, some of the kicks were just not that great imo. If it was pitch, that's unfortunate.

However that last interception was awesome!
