As the cup gets closer, teams are have started to name their world cup squads, All Blacks release theirs tomorrow at 2pm local time. Should be good watching countries that you wouldn't usually see play out of the world cup.

I think the only real question is, will the all blacks choke this time? If they do, then we could have any number of possible winners.

Im off to the bledisloe cup game in Brisbane this weekend, should be a ripper of a contest! Will also give us a really good indication of where each team is at.

^^ Yep, it's NZ's cup to lose really, but then again they are always favourites and it ends up meaning little. England look undercooked but it didn't seem to do us much harm last time. Haven't seen Aus/SA play recently. Good to see the major games shown at a decent-ish hour for us given the time difference

If we don't win the world cup this time round then we'll never win it again, that being said, if Australia click, then they're more than capable of winning it.

Could very well happen, I only see the winner coming from one of the three Tri Nations teams.

New Zealand V Australia just about to start, don't think it the final outcome with have too much effect, maybe a confidence boost to whoever but that's it.

So the stage is set, with Australia having the Tri Nations, and Super 15 trophies in their keeping comming into the world cup.

Of course beating New Zealand in New Zealand, is a different thing entirey, when was the last time the kiwis lost a home game?

I love watching the pacific island nations play, usually very exciting.

Whoever has won the Tri Nations have never won the world cup in the same year, heres hoping it Aussie don't break the streak.

You'd think that the All Blacks have no chance of winning the world cup if you listen to the people overhere, so much negativity over a loss in which we will learn and gain more than a win.
