    Most fun part of this will be deciding who finished third out of Tonga and Georgia.

    Go Namibia! Do they have any Burgers playing, or are they restricted to cricket?

    Don't think Tonga could put one over Argentina? I doubt it, but who knows what sort of Argentina team turns up.

    Tonga are ahead of Samoa, Japan and Italy in the rankings which doesn't mean much I know but sport is a funny thing sometimes.

    Oh yes. Jacques Burger of Saracens was a good shout for player of the season in the Premiership this year. Their best player by miles
    What if all the switches get stuck on 'destroy'?

    Can the ABs rack up more than the 142 that Australia did against the Namibians in '03?

    No. Rugby has improved globally in the last 7-8 years.

    2) See point 1.

    Georgia will qualify, best starting front row in the group. Possibly the tournament.

    That is a big call to say they will beat Argentina. I'm pleased that the All Blacks will face some challenges in pool play though.

    I reckon the 6 Nations should be changed to 8 (2 pools of 4). Georgia are already as good as Scotland and Italy.

    Messy game, too many penalties and handling errors.

    Tough game, that. Argentina's defence was superb, forced a lot of turnovers. Pretty scrappy by the All Blacks though, two dropped balls with an open run to the tryline probably symptomatic of having not played for about a month.
