Ireland whilst they won should be ashamed - that was a pathetic game the score shouldve been MUCH higher they really need to up their game for the French & Argentinian matches.

Mikey - l did think that myself about Nambia - l also then began to question my geography wondering if it was actually in Africa after all!

Roll on the finals!!!
Hopefully it'll give the All Blacks a test, Australia would be a good opposition (the Saffa's, France, England or Ireland just too easy )

That would be a good final. The world's number one and two teams.

The All-blacks were pretty amazing. Italy were just completely outclassed.

Quoting mikeyBoab

That would be a good final. The world's number one and two teams.

That's great to hear about the display, looking forward to the All Black V's Scotland at Murryfield - should be a good game & great atmosphere to boot.

Atmosphere - yes.

Game? I don't think anyone's expecting too much of Scotland against the all blacks. The all blacks are favourites to win and deservedly so. Maybe they just had a very good opening match but they were amazing from start to finish.

Well, I must say, having watched the Italy - Romania game last night I feel a lot better about Scotland's chances. Romania were, well, pretty rubbish and the Italians didn't seem to be able to bring them under control.

Looks like Scotland just might make it into second place in the group!

Oh yeah and we beat France in the football last night!

So... England v South Africa, with Vickery and Burger both banned for this game.

Any predictions on the winner?

I daren't say Summer! It's much too close to call. England are without Wilkinson and Barkley - not good.

I'm expecting a South Africa win but a close one.

a close one!!! SA 36 Eng 0 it was pathetic game - taking candy from babies!!! Only poor old Jason Robinson had any class & then his ham string went, poor bugger. Humiliating.

ireland better give a better show tomorrow against Georgia.

Yeah, Robinson was the only good player in the team, the rest were kinda clueless!

I was expecting this game to be close like you said, Mikey, but England were just sitting there waiting for the Boks to run at them. South Africa were pretty solid (give or take a few lapses), and Montgomery was love! It was just... amazing that England couldn't even manage any points, even Samoa and Japan showed more grit and passion (and didn't have a big fat zero in the scoreline).
