    Wales because of the wife
    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.

    Fiji, Tonga, Samoa (I hope the refereeing improves for them though)

    I also have a soft spot for Georgia and Japan - really passionate about rugby and I really like Argentina.

    As a NZer the teams I respect (fear) the most are France and South Africa, so if the ABs can't win the whole thing they'd be fine.

    France may peak for this tournament. Terrifying team to play.
