The main event of the big oval ball game starts this weekend in France.



Canada needs a result over Wales to have a chance at qualifying for the knockout stages and equalling there best ever performance. Won't be easy as the Welsh players are fully professional while only some of the Canadian contingent is.

Canada is expected to beat Fiji and Japan and to take and absolute mauling from the Wallabies.

The groups are as follows while the 8 expected quarter finalists are in bold letters.

Pool A

England
South Africa

Samoa
USA
Tonga

Pool B

Australia
Wales

Fiji
Canada
Japan

Pool C

New Zealand
Scotland

Italy
Romania
Portugal

Pool D

France
Ireland

Argentina
Georgia
Namibia

Scotland and Wales are the 2 teams who seemingly could be beaten out for a quarter final spot but that will require some great results for the other Group A and C teams.

New Zealand, France, Australia and South Africa are the favorites.
England and Ireland make up the second tier while everyone else is behind

Anyone else care about this?


If you are an English fan, Jonny Wilkinson stepped on a untrimmed blade of grass yesterday and hurt is ankle and is out for the opener vs the US with his status going forward to be deterimined next week.

Now that I have Setanta I'm going to watching. Been awhile since I played, but have some buddies that played pro down under so it's kept me sort of in the loop

I thought rugby was for the soccer players that had no skill but still wanted to fit on a team environment?

Soccer is a gentleman's game played and watched by hooligans.

Rugby is a hooligan's game played and watched by gentleman.

Those who rip into Rugby are the lads who couldn't play the game, period.

England will have a tough go repeating, long shot at best. New Zealand will take it all..

Argentina currently demolishing France (if it's live), France very lucky the score is only 17-9, as they've only been in the Argentinian end 3 times. Going to be a cracking world cup, that's for sure.
