Rugby World Cup !

Started by Zabuti, September 07, 2011, 08:18:57 AM

Let's start with the pronostics !

Which team are you cheering ? Who do you think will win ?

IMHO, I believe that the qualifying round will see as winners :

Group A : New Zealand & France
Group B : England & Argentina
Group C : Ireland & Australia
Group D : South Africa & Samoa

I'm for South Africa and France ! (would be a marvelous final !)

Excellent, a proper world cup. I feel some fantasy sweepstakes coming up, just for bragging rights, infact I've even worked out how to do it...

My winners of the groups;

A: New Zealand & France (depends if the good French team turns up or the team that can't play rugby)
B: England & Argentina
C: Ireland & Australia, although Italy might come out of nowhere...
D: South Africa & Wales (I hope!)

I'd love to see a New Zealand and Wales final, doubt it will happen. An England - New Zealand final would be good.

Although I'm Argentinian, I can see the trophy going to....Australia. Yep, I said it.

ArcherII

Opening match!

New Zealand 41 - Tonga 10

I would guess neither team was exactly happy about it.

Zabuti

was following that from work... looked epic !

ArcherII

First Sat game could have been a huge upset for the Scottish team, yet grabbed a win at the end vs Rumania. 34-24.
Waiting all night for ARG-ENG clash!

ArcherII

Ok...England 13 - Argentina 9. What a battle, we must find our kicker rapidly.

Well there is actually 20 teams.

Ever heard of the 'world series' in which a total of ONE country competes!

ArcherII

Wales came real short of defeating the Sprinboks. 17-16 for South Africa.
Only if that drop-goal....

After this first day of games, I'm a bit sceptical on my 2 favorite teams (French and Boks)...

Dammit, I'm sure they'll awake ! (they'd better do ;-) )

Only if the referee was not a biased useless waste of space and all that.

That Hook ball was totally legal and the refing was absolutely terrible, many legal Welsh stuff was disallowed and just as much illegal SA stuff was allowed.

+1  ;D

ArcherII

mmm, I haven't noticed that. Maybe because I'm an outsider? Which hook ball are you talking about? I certainly missed that. What most impressed me was the ability of Heinrich Brussouw to steal the ball off the rucks, he's a beast.

Hook kicked a penalty which from one angle looked questionable but from basically every other camera in the stadium looked as though it sailed through the bars. 

ArcherII

Oh yeah! You're right! It was definitely in if you ask me. But I would accept that it was very very close to the post extension.

Zabuti

Wonderful French game today =)
