    Be a fair old scrap for second between Scotland and Argentina. The sweaties have had some good results against the Pumas of late.

    Pretty sure England should win it.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    When do England ever play as well as they should? Scotland have it sewn up.

    World Cups. Four semis, three finals and a win plays one semi.

    Pretty sure they didn't play as they should in 2007. Well above and beyond.

    This one's looking like a pretty favourable draw for England.
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    2. Scotland
    3.Georgia
    4. Romania
    5. England - Following point deduction for playing an ineligble player (due to admin cover-ups and false Grandmas it will be discovered one quarter of the England team is in fact not English)

    Arguably Argentina's best player, Juan Martin Hernandez not named in the Pumas' WC squad due to injury:

    Thats rather disappointing given how impressively he performed in the 2007 tournament.

    Thats bad news for the Argies, Hernanadez is a fantastic player.

    Odds of them causing an upset just diminished significantly.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    England squad announced

    From the BBC.

    Forwards: (17)

    Props: Dan Cole (Leicester, Age 24, 17 caps), Alex Corbisiero (London Irish, 22, 6), Andrew Sheridan (Sale, 31, 38), Matt Stevens (Saracens, 28, 34), David Wilson (Bath, 26, 18).

    Hookers: Dylan Hartley (Northampton, 25, 29), Lee Mears (Bath, 32, 37), Steve Thompson (Wasps, 33, 67).

    Locks: Louis Deacon (Leicester, 30, 24), Courtney Lawes (Northampton, 22, 9), Tom Palmer (Stade Francais, 32, 27), Simon Shaw (unattached, 37, 67).

    Back row: Tom Croft (Leicester, 25, 25), Nick Easter (Harlequins, 33, 44), James Haskell (Ricoh Black Rams, 26, 36), Lewis Moody (Bath, 33, 67), Tom Wood (Northampton, 24, 7).

    Backs: (13)

    Full-backs/wings: Delon Armitage (London Irish, 27, 20), Ben Foden (Northampton, 26, 16), Chris Ashton (Northampton, 24, 12), Mark Cueto (Sale, 31, 52).

    Centres: Matt Banahan (Bath, 24, 13), Shontayne Hape (London Irish, 30, 12), Mike Tindall (Gloucester, 32, 71), Manu Tuilagi (Leicester, 20, 1).

    Fly-halves: Toby Flood (Leicester, 26, 41), Jonny Wilkinson (Toulon, 32, 86).

    Scrum-halves: Joe Simpson (Wasps, 23, 0), Richard Wigglesworth (Saracens, 28, 7), Ben Youngs (Leicester, 21, 12).

    ---

    No Flutey is the big news, I suppose.

    Few areas of concern for me. 3 scrum-halves is one too many when Foden's more than capable of covering 9 & 4 specialist locks similarly, when Croft and even Wood could be used there in extremis.

    Centres & fly-halves the big areas of concern for me. Only two specialist tens and no specialist insides is a strange call. I presume it means Hape will play 12, but really if a bloke who can't pass off his left hand and who has no kicking game at all is the answer we're clearly asking the wrong question.
