    Its been over 8 hours since the last question was aswered, and no-one seems keen, so I will ask one to get the ball rolling again



    Excluding Finals and 3rd/4th play-offs, how many knock-out play-off matches have there been in all RWCs prior to 2015?

    1987-2011 = 7 world cups

    All of them had 4 quarter finals and 2 semi finals so 7 x 6 = 42.

    But, i remember 1999 was different. That world cup didn't have the usual 4 group structure, it had 5. All winners went through to the QF and all the runner-ups plus the best third position (Argentina, that's why i remember) had to face each other before that. So that would mean 3 additional games.

    Answer: 45

    Correct. It was a trick question... Those three matches were called "Quarter Final Playoffs"

    I just knew a Pumas fan wouldn't be fooled

    Your turn

    Thank you.

    Prior to 2015 (not sure about 2015 to be honest), all the referees officiating the opening game shared a common "ritual". What was that ritual?

    Kirwan? Don't know really, seems like the best guess.

    Sorry for the delay, I've not been online much this week. You're correct. I thought this would be pretty easy for our northern posters (although we do appear to lack Yorkshiremen), although maybe I forget how far above the average age of a poster I am!

    Cross Green is a nice, traditional club ground, but it's a reflection of how far that the World Cup has come in 24 years that it was used. Based on my visit there 6 or seven years ago, 5,000 would have been a tight fit, although maybe temporary facilities increased the capacity. The home of my own club (Redruth RFC funnily enough) hosted the All Blacks back in 1993 and packed 17,000 in. The capacity is well below that these days as surfaces have been allowed to decline and barriers have been removed.

    Michael Jones?

    I'm pretty confident that is right so here's my question: who is the youngest ever World Cup try scorer?

    What do Argentina's first matches in the '99, '03 and '07 have in common?
    (This one is fairly easy, but I'm going offline for a few days so won't be able to check answers.)
    Edit: just noticed there are a few possible answers, so let's exclude answers involving players (such as: xxxx participated in all three games)

    Oops, d'oh!
