About time we win it, and on home soil.

I'm going to be in Wellington around that time, It's going to be crazy!

Honestly, I can't wait and the whole country will just go mad into party mode.

Personally, I hope to see about 5 games and head down to the waterfront (Party Central) for the atmosphere.

Feel bad for the people in Christchurch who are still suffering and will miss out on all the fun. They were supposed to host a few QFs and were the premier destination in the South Island but their city is in ruins now and we won't get to see their newly renovated 50,000 seater stadium in action. But the new indoor stadium in Dunedin looks sexy!

I really hope the All Blacks win it.

Students from Christchurch uni came to my uni after the EQ's, I really feel sorry for them. Now they have to miss out on the WC, It must be tough for them. It would have pumped a fair bit into their econamy.

Running rugby is the way to go. This tournament, the emphasis will finally be on scoring tries instead of the kick and tackle borefest of past tournaments. Australia and New Zealand are the ones playing beautiful attacking rugby, South Africa haven't chosen that path. France will do well, and Argentina too- the rest need to start scoring some tries. The Heineken Cup final was promising, I must say.

Group A: I'm happy France are in our group, because they're our bogey team. New Zealand to top the group, France coming second. Tonga and France will fight for third place, and I doubt Canada will win a game.

Group B: There's usually a group of death in the World Cup, and in this edition it's this group. Argentina will top and England will come second, because they usually start the World Cups slowly. Scotland will need to perform a miracle to make it out of the group, but they are capable of doing that. Actually, a very competitive group- that is, until we get to the minnows Romania and Georgia who won't get anywhere near the other three, one would think.

Group C: Australia to win this one, Ireland to come second. Italy could actually be able to upset Ireland, it's not far off the cards at all. USA vs Russia will actually be a spectacle; the Yanks vs the Soviets- Putin is rumoured to come to New Zealand for this game.

Group D: South Africa to win this one, Wales to come second. Though Fiji ensured Wales didn't progress to the knockout stage in 2007, and could very well repeat that. Samoa aren't bad either, but Namibia will be the bunny.

Quarterfinals:

Australia vs Wales
Argentina vs France
South Africa vs Ireland
New Zealand vs England

Semifinals:

Australia vs France
South Africa vs New Zealand

Final:

New Zealand vs Australia

New Zealand to win. :coffee:

You better hope we get knocked out before the semi's.

If we get that far it's in the bag.

Prepare for Sean O'Brian and Jamie Heaslip to walk over the all blacks!

Who?? Shocked

There are two back row players that are beasts but extremely skillful beasts.

Heaslip has great pace for a big man and a surperb off-loading game.

O'Brian just can't be stopped from making the gain line.

Then flash it out to BOD and try! Very Happy
