    South Africa to dominate this group. Should be a good clash between Samoa and Tonga though, with the outside chance that either of those Pacific Island teams could cause an upset over England.

    Prob Samoa if it was to happen. Tonga seem to be heading constantly down hill unfortunately. Beaten by Japan last night.

    Come on, we're bad, but there's no way we won't make the quarters at the least.

    Yeah, no chance of Samoa or Tonga causing at upset over England . You will probably make the semis easily enough but will need a vast improvement from what we've seen since the last WC to get further than that.

    Depends where we finish. I think if we finished second here we play the winners of pool A which is likely to be Oz. If we manage to turn the yarpies over tho we're actually a chance for the final as we'll probably have quarters of Wales then France in the semi.

    Aus might not be too hard though

    Yeah but we're currently tragically afflicted by our "****eness" issues that've been plaguing us since 2003.

    All I can say is ''Bye! Bye England!'' I'd be surprised if they made it through this group. It's probably the hardest group in the competition. SA will definitely go through and maybe Samoa.

    Let's not go over the top here. We're poor, but we will qualify. Fiji & Samoa have never beaten us ever & aren't that likely to start now.

    Yeah I agree with BB here. England are crapola but they are still much better than either of the Pacific Island teams in this pool. If they don't qualify then we can safely assume that hell will freeze over.

    Did you see how bad we were in the Six Nations BB? Your blind optimism is endearing but let's have some good ol' Blighty pessimism and say we're a fair chance of getting dumped out in a shock result.

    I hope not of course, but I never rule anything out.

    Careful Kenny
    England are really bad at the moment.. Wouldn't be surprised if Samoa beat them. I hope they don't but wouldnt be surprised if they did.
