Question for you all, For New Zealanders in particular. WQho do you think the second best in the world? Who do you thbk is most likely to cause a WC upset?
I don't think so this time. Australia and South Africa are starting to fall behind. Argentina might be able to pull of an upset. I also disagree with fcukernaut, I think either France or Ireland on their day can give New Zealand a scare right now. Even in the second test NZ v France, if France had gotten one or two more tests under their belt and had a fit michalak, it might've been a different game. A few opportunities to score and narrow the margin were missed by the French, and come World Cup, I think we can trust them to hit hard. The only other emerging nation I see right now is Wales, and i believe the semi final teams are going to go something like NZ, France/Ireland, Ireland/France, Wales this time around.
