    It'll be on BBC, how much they show live is another thing, should be on their webstream so you shouldn't miss much then.

    Australia even

    I dunno ,looks like a great team on paper but not alot of recent 7's experience.

    I think England proved in the US that great defence can win tournaments...... so if you look at the Aussie players chosen you notice they all have great defence plus alot of guys that are hard to tackle............... oh...and the master....GITEAU.

    Its gonna come down to England,Australia,NZ,SA and Fiji..... any of these can win it..... i have no idea.

    I've got my ticket, I will be watching all 4 quarter finals, cant wait :D
  7. Fiji for sure. New Zealand isn't on a very good run of form. England could win but Fiji I think is more determined.

    wales were unlucky - they played ok when they had the ball - id be shocked if they didnt reach the qf.

    Wales weren't unlucky. They only had a couple of opportunities, and they took them. they were just outplayed.
  10. fiji look very strong but real silly and they mucked around alot..if they continue with that attitude of 'playing around' teams gonna knock em outta the tournament all together...

    when they did play to they strengths they seemed unstoppable...

    new zealand look alright but the team doesnt look as balanced...they have more solid stronger players than any real speedsters barring soseni anesi..

    im still thinkin either england or fiji to win this thing

    The only game they've shown is a bit of the Wales NZ match......... this sux

    its all swimming heats

    btw Anesi looked pretty ****..... i thought he'd be alot better.
  12. kaftka

    kaftka Guest

    He looked like he was trying to play a 15's game most of the time. He will get better soon enough though.

    Aye chiro, you're right. Goldilocks looks like the only guy with any pace aside from Anesi....
  13. The TRUTH

    The TRUTH Guest

    Yeah evey time i see goldilocks play he's awesome..

    do you guys get all the 7's games

    Half time in Australias first match 31-0 against Sri Lanka

    Tuqiri's putting the stamp on a few of these Lankans
  15. The TRUTH

    The TRUTH Guest

    Australia won there first game 73-0..... the Sri Lankans were scared to even run the ball at them once they got hit a few times.

    Its hard to tell how good they are yet........ i think they might not have enough pace for England........ all our players are pretty big..... but they have good defence.

    Should be a good game tonight against England.

    well they're just getting used to the field and just settling...thats how they always do it..when they make it to the semi's or the final, they'll have the same attitude..more of a relaxed attitude...until sum1 see's a gap..

    hey we created the "only one touch" game
