Was great to see Ireland beat Australia last night, another cracking game coming up soon is Wales Samoa, should be a great game with Samoa's flair.

Wales pull out the win with a lapse in defence from Samoa, great game, sets Wales up as one of the more dangerous teams.

England playing shocking against Georgia, 1 min in the oppositions 22, Georgia with 75% territory at the half, England 17-10.

Scored a couple of decent tries later on though. Better than last week but work to be done before we play the top teams.

I got a scare from my beloved Boks against Wales, but they've certainly picked up their act against Fiji. But being realistic, unfortunately this lot aren't as good as their 2007 team

Australia's loss to Ireland certainly shakes up the tournament a little, ie: a NZ v Aus final as most predicted.

Hmmm Aus first would have to get past SA in the quarters, which after the performance against Fiji I think would be a fairly hard ask, but the question is how will Australia rebound.

not just that, but New Zealand will have to lose a pool game in order for them to potentially meet Australia in the final. As for Aus vs Sth Africa, neither Australia nor South Africa seem to have much consistency this year; they'll do poorly against one team and then brilliantly against another.

I hope Scotland beat England and I think they have a good chance of doing so and winning the group.

Hmmm Scotland have been scrappy against Romania and Georgia, I would back them to possibly beat England but I think that would be a long shot, but I don't see them beating Argentina.

Still cant believe Ireland showed up to beat Austrailia. Even the Aussies on their wost day i would have expected them to destroy Ireland with the pre cup games we had.
