    Haha, we've clearly got the easiest group.

    Will be a shame to see one of France, Argentina, Ireland go out in the group stage

    We should go through without any hiccups, all of our games will be won by at least 50 points.

    Can only see Italy coming within 30 points of the All Blacks.

    Can't see any of them doing it myself. Even with the weaker sides that we will field during the group stages, we will still be too strong.

    A weak pool doesn't help us at all. It never has.

    IIRC I think Romania is the only side New Zealand hasn't put up a half century - to a century up against, mind you that was in the 70's IIRC.

    (I could be wrong because I read that the best part of ten years ago)

    And shouldn't we give Richie McCaw the option to declare at anytime against Portugal, because I have a feeling they will do the Portugese what the AB's did to Japan in 1995 and Australia to Nambia last time around.

    The year was 1981 and Andy Dalton lead the All Blacks out infront of 30,000 screaming fans in Bucharest. The game was tight at halftime and nothing could seperate the teams, but in the end the All Blacks pulled away to win 14-6 in the only encounter they have ever had with Romania.

    Knew that would be the one. Why I was thinking of the 70's I don't know.

    I agree with Ohtani, this isn't going to help the ABs, never has. Its going to be carnage, and then I wonder, just wonder how they will front up in the finals.

    Italy are actually a live chance of the quarters here. Still take the sweaties tho.

    Didn't do us any harm in 1987 (Italy 70-6, Fiji 74-13, Argentina 46-25).
