France vs New Zealand opener looks tasty.

Ireland vs Scotland at end could be for last quarters place or who is top.

Can definitely wait to top that group and lose to a well rested French/NZ side and watch SA reach the semis.

Blatant trolling aside, I think we will do well from that pool. Two fairly weak games you'd imagine before facing off with South Africa in what will definitely be a pretty bruising game might be difficult, but I wouldn't massively fear it. Don't think a Quarter Final exit will be quite as embarrassing this time around with NZ and France waiting.

See I'm in two minds about England's games. If we win against Argentina and Japan then we should have some easier games which means we can rest key players before the knockout stage. On the other hand it might mean they are a little undercooked if they've had a bit of time off and so relatively easier games, especially knowing this England side.

With the way we are currently playing we could be out after two games!. I fancy the All Blacks for the RWC next time. the Springboks have got a very tough draw all the way through and England’s if they get through isn’t the easiest. If we play NZ in the semis next time we’ll get whipped.

Has someone already bought tickets? Is it possible to buy good places the match day or it's better to buy in advance (and how early in advance)? Any other advice about visiting RWC matches,if someone has ever visited RWCs, would be appreciated pls

Chile beat Canada which means that if they can beat the loser of the USA v Uruguay game they will be in the RWC for the first time

With our population size (nearly 322 million) we shouldn't be losing to Chile (less than 20 million) in any sport. USA 15s rugby is really bad. :(

Honestly America should go all out and try and bring over O’Shea, look what he has done for the Italian youth setup.

Reality is America traditional setup isn’t really designed for sports like rugby.

High School to College to Professional, with drafts just doesn’t really work. A lot of the teams that succeed tend to have a core of players that are really familiar with each other.

It’s going to be a long journey I just feel for america and Canada to succeed they need to have a real clear out of the old guard at the top of the sport.
