    I've got Scotland to beat Samoa given its in Newcastle/England. If it were not in the UK then Samoa by miles.

    Should be the match of the first round. Samoa love their big hits and I understand these Scots have some ticker.
    1) Ross is Boss.
    2) See point 1.

    Leading the charge against nuances being used in posts.

    Overrated XI M Bracewell, Burns, Rahane, Don Voges, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul

    Samoa are wildly overrated, they rarely play the top teams, always get beaten comfortably when they do and aren't even the best islander team.
    What if all the switches get stuck on 'destroy'?

    South Africa will rise and fall with their 1st 5. I think they should go Lambie to start, Pollard was looking green to end the four nations.

    I really rate Pollard - I reckon he is a potential WC trump card. South Africa is the team I fear most.

    All the Islander teams are ****. Scotland are poor but Samoa much worse.

    Nah Samoa have poached 12 NZers while Scotland have only poached 2 or 3. Samoa are decent.

    Few have gone the other way to be fair, but nah. If Pisi brothers are our best players you are ordinary.

    Tim Nanai Williams (SBW's cousin) and Kahn Fotuali'i are better than the Pisi bros. Both TNW and KF (especially the latter) must have got close to being All Blacks but never did but were eligible for Samoa as well due to parent/grandparent rule.

    He has a young head on young shoulders. Lambie has had more rugby. Pollard is the most talented 1st 5 in the world but this is not his time.

    I am a Northampton Saints fan, KF is very average player nowadays. Slow ball and runs up blind alleys.

    Oh god, the relating everything back to NZ has now entered this sub forum as well.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    That's a shame - he was very good when playing for the Crusaders (often put Andy Ellis on the bench)
