Well thank goodness we’re not in the pool of death, or we may be dead.
Three games down, and all pretty scratchy. One against a mid-level country, and two against minnows. And they all scored tries against us, and we never looked dominant.
Credit to Georgia for playing so well. I do love how the World Cup inspires the less ranked countries to put in their best performances.
Tonga could push us quite hard next weekend.
The pools are looking interesting.
Pool A – Australia probably to top and Wales may come second unless England beat them. The two bonus points for England should see them through if they do.
Pool B – South Africa should still top followed by Scotland
Pool C -All Blacks and probably Argentina
Pool D – France followed by Ireland
So quarter-finals may be:
- South Africa vs Wales
- NZ vs Ireland
- France vs Argentina
- Australia vs Scotland
Possible semis are:
- South Africa vs NZ
- France vs Australia
Not even going to predict the final!
