    Fiji will shock the world and beat the English. Then their media will jump all over them and they'll miss the finals altogether. Hears it here first.

    Yeah I'm a little torn over this mornings game...

    I want Fiji to win... But I also want England and Wales to advance out of the pool so Australia can suffer the embarrassment of not even getting out of pool play... :lol:

    All you need to worry about is France. NZ/RWC/France is always an interesting combo :)

    Aussies biggest problem isn't Wales or England, it is discipline. If we can keep 15 players on the field we have a chance. We keep giving away penalties and collecting cards we are no hope.

    Georgia look like they have this. Been comfortably the better side.

    Will be interested to see how the U.S. and Canada have come along since 2011. They always seem like they're getting that liiiiitle bit better each cup.

    Georgia play like a NZ provincial team... Really combative at the breakdown.

    That Canadian front row is the three most Canadian looking men that ever Canadianed. They looked like they each killed a grizzly bear before a breakfast of pancakes before apologising profusely.

    Canada not exactly covering themselves in glory here. Ireland look like they're on a training run.

    I could end up being embarrassed next week vs Romania but you are unlikely to see a capitulation by an Irish side to a minnow this time around. Joe Schmidt is probably the best coach in the world. He wouldn't allow the kind of stupidity the Boks engaged in today.

    Surely that's a stitch up to drum interest when the next WC is played in Japan?

    Hahah, I got home just before 7:00am, figured I would watch this drubbing lol...WOW...how..what did I just watch???

    I know alot of people on here rip into Union, but the game is literally light years ahead of ours on the international stage.
