    Don't the top 3 in each group automatically qualify? Don't see how anyone would benefit from for eaxmple, France playing Germany and Spain to qualify?
    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!

    Used to happen in the early days of qualifying.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1999_R..._qualification

    'Scotland XV' put 80+ on Spain and Portugal, the scots not willing to award caps for doing so.

    Think the 90s experience might have soured the powers that be against top sides qualifying for good, which is a shame as the gap is much smaller than it was 20 years ago.

    Anyway, it was boosted to 8 automatic qualifiers in 2003, and then 12 after 2007 (which stopped Ireland and Wales having to qualify, coincedentally...)

    Oh dear

    Frenchman Jerome Garces has been appointed as referee for Saturday's Rugby World Cup final between South Africa and England in Yokohama.Kick-off is scheduled for 11:00 (SA time).
    Garces will be assisted by compatriot Romain Poite and New Zealand's Ben O'Keeffe, with another Kiwi, Ben Skeen, the television match official (TMO).

    But on a brighter note, all players in Bok squad fit including Kolbe at this point. Who knows what might happen in those dreaded cricket warm up games...

    I read a piece after the England/NZ semi-final where the author was complaining that having a northern hemisphere referee disadvantaged the All Blacks due to different interpretations of some of the rules. The author then went on to say that a southern hemisphere referee would have disadvantaged England for the same reason. He then concluded that these matches should have a neutral referee who didn't originate from northern or southern hemisphere. At this point he lost me, unless he was suggesting that the referee should have come from an equatorial country.

    I would quite happily take just about any other ref besides the french ones... Barnes would have been a good choice, let the french ref the inconsequential 3rd/4th place.

    i do enjoy our adoption of japan as one of our own because of their play style. no wonder south africa want to leave for the north.

    i'd be happy to swap and take the japanese yen but south africa are our truest rival, are a great occassion to play with the games historically being close and also they're useful for getting work against ****ing big ****s. argentinian forwards have lost some of their ****ery and australia don't really do tight 5s, they subsist off of loose forwards like non-crusaders nz super rugby teams do.
