    We get one of the match ups we've been waiting for.

    NZ v France in a QF.

    Haha!! squeaky bum time for us kiwis... :lol:

    To be fair we SHOULD beat them... And beat them well...

    But in these knockout games when the pressure mounts we can be tipped over if the French pick up momentum.

    I can imagine the media, ABs will be mentally scarred, ABs will have the previous final knock at at the back of their minds, and all the other cliches they use.

    I think the ABS will win easy.

    South Africa v Wales

    NZ v France

    Ireland v Argentina

    Wallabies v Scotland


    If everything goes as expected the semis should be:

    South Africa v NZ

    Australia v Ireland

    Although Argentina beating Ireland wouldn't surprise.

    We should do, I would have been more worried about Ireland, Schmidt has them humming, hope their injuries aren't too bad (The Argies can't match them unless they're weakened - Wales beating RSA would be less of a surprise imo, and a joyous thing). If NZ can't win, I'd love to see Ireland get there, imagine the party! :lol:

    So the French players have apparently revolted against the coach....

    As an All Black supporter that just sends a shiver down your spine...

    If it was anyone else in world rugby the confidence levels would rise... But with this mob against the All Blacks... They actually thrive on being a shambles...

    Even though they cause us so much pain... You just can't help but love those crazy bastards...

    :lol:

    Bit of a rough blow for the Aussies... Pocock and Folau out of the quaterfinal.

    Should still have enough firepower to beat the scots... But not ideal for them that's for sure.

    If it was tougher opposition they'd play no doubt, shouldn't bite us in the arse

    I hope that's not the case... Your playing with fire resting your best forward and best back in a knockout game.

    I think they will still be too strong... But it's going to be imperative that they lead well early and keep distance between them for the entire game.

    If Scotland can stay within striking distance deep in to the game they will gain confidence and it becomes more of a 50/50 proposition.

    And you don't want it decided by a dodgy refs decision.

    Sexton out:(:(:(

    We're now down 5 first choicers, all key players. Absolute disaster for Ireland. If there's a God up there he doesn't like us at World Cups.

    Heading over in the morning still for my sins.:)

    Well that proves the Blacks have just been cruising in the group stages.

    Or maybe the French were just awful..bit of both I think

    Australia might have some issues with this Argentinian mob next week.....best attacking rugby I've seen in years.

    Pathetic, pathetic effort from Ireland.....just inexcusable really. Argentina were good, but even with the players missing Ireland should have been easily the better side and didn't show up

    Scotland look good with the ball in hand. Australia need to play possession footy.
