Rugby World Cup

Any Rugby fans following the world cup?

England had a strong win over Tonga. Bigger margin than I predicted.

Ireland and Scotland. What happened there? Whilst I did pick Ireland I had them to win by a margin of 5.

Wales will be a strong win by 34 points I think.

Interested what you folk think. Cheers

Hi John.
England playing USA coverage starts now, 11 am USA have beaten Scotland recently, so not to be under estimated, England need to at thire best.

Ireland are a contender for W/C underestimate them, would be a mistake, would put them ahead of Wales on that score.

Scotlands form is a little to erratic, they may have trouble qualifying.

As for predictions on scores.

England to win. I'm holding my breath.

Hello Dave I just scrapped in with Wales beating the Aussies. I had Wales to win by 11.
Japan whilst no longer a mino I was surprised they pulled of the win.

Scotland to win x 13 points over Samoa.

Bit hard for us down under picking some of the less known teams out of Europe etc but soon I expect we may get a clearer view going forward.

Aussie and South Africa won't be happy with our chaps so semis and final yet to be determined as to likely contenders to play.

Hi John
Going true to form at the moment, although Japan are motoring. I never forecast, sods law say if I predict a team to win,they loose by that sore.

I've heard the expression "blowing a team away" but this ridiculous.

Hi Dave. Team picks I am having a good run at present and ahead of the good lady whom is not best pleased. LOL Have picked every win bar two so far but some of my margins have been well off.
Disappointing about cancelling some games but I have to accept the Japs know best.

Just concerned how that decision will impact on the results? I hear they had an earthquake as well as the storm. Not a good mix at any time.

Been away for 4 days with grandkids and their mother who is in need of R & R after a lot of illness. Cheated thou as we stayed in sister in-laws cottage which was pleasant. LOL.

Tomorrow WOF for car and Van plus Registration for van and away next weekend for a few weeks. How long unsure as we have a few things that we are committed too and will be weather dependent.
Cheers for now and take care. I presume you are backing the All Blacks for a win. LOL

Hi John
To tell you the truth wife not well, only managed 11 nights this year. I'm catching my Rugby up on the TV highlights.
If they can find the stadiums for rest of the tournament. Looks Like England will face Australia, in the knockout stag, Which is the better game for us than playing Wales So England to beat Australia 30 --20 then Wales. We have a real chance this time.

As for backing the All Blacks-------------------------- might edge my bet.

My motor due for its MOT last month, van due for services week next Tuesday.

Have a look at my thread Mole Sank. Our crew went around patting ourselves on the back. Have a look.
