    Bright-eyed freedom stands before ye,
    Hear ye not her call?

    Apart from Namibia - it looks like a wonderful pool

    Wales will lose to either Fiji, Samoa or both. In fact, I'm so confident of this, I think I'll bet on it.

    Choice of the groups by quite a way for my pound. Whilst SA should win it there are three teams with a proper shout at second.

    Absolute agreement with Heef too, the Taffs have an awful record against the pacific islands in world cups. Lost to Western Samoa (as was) in 1991 & Manu Samoa in 1999 and obviously yer Fijians last time round. Think one of them a great shout at knocking them over again.

    Samoa coming off arguably their best ever result too, second string Wobblies or not.

    Based on your domestic rugby tipping form I'll back Wales to top the group then.

    In all seriousness, certainly the pool with the most interest. As I've mentioned already I'd love for one of the Islands to make it past the group stage and in Samoa and Fiji, and a vulnerable Welsh side to face, they're certainly a chance.

    Probably the best group

    Hopefully Samoa can get something out of there game against Wales and knock them out!

    What is it with people butchering the SA national anthem? There was this in 2009: Stoned man sings National Anthem - YouTube

    Now at the release of their squad yesterday, there was this: Ard Matthews (Just Jinjer) Screws up South Africa National Anthem - YouTube

    Tried to get through the main bits of this game this evening, the Namibian flyhalf Kotze looked very impressive and composed - think he equalled the record for most dropkicks in a WC match behind De Beer in 1999. Also not a bad outing for the Fijian wing Goneva, with four tries to his name - throws those people betting on tournament top try scorer into a bit of a dilemna.

    Wales putting up a decent effort in the 1st half especially after conceding the try so early. Pretty attritional stuff from both sides but still quite absorbing.

    Thought the floodgates might open after they went behind so early on, but the Leekists have really fronted up to Johnny Bok.

    Definitely still in this.
