    highly unlikely tho, mores the pity...

    Ireland on their way out here one feels. 24-15 down when they need to win by 8 and score another two tries.

    Sorry for the Irish, but they just haven't turned up at all this tournament. Giving EO'S a 4-year contract just before the WC seems a tad hasty in retrospect.

    Congrats to Argentina tho, announced themselves a genuine world force last autumn with wins at Twickers & the Stadio Flaminio and have backed it up since. They'll start as favourites in the quarters v the sweaties.

    Awesome work from Argentina, they really deserve their quarter-final place. If only they had a solid domestic structure and more exposure to international rugby, they would be right up there in the best five teams in the world. Shame, but hopefully their performances at this tournament will provoke some action.

    Argentina played really beautiful rugby. I was impressed by their defence, numbers to the breakdown, rolling mauls and link play. Hernandez is a class player. I hate the up and under, but that was the best take I've ever seen. Ireland played their best game of the tournament, but their forwards were swamped and O'Gara sucks. O'Driscoll was a dick when he scored that try.

    Argentina deserve to win the World Cup to be honest. They have Scotland in the QF and I'm sure they'll pass them with no problem. Then it should be South Africa. SA haven't played all that great the passed few games so you never know Argentina might win that one. Well I'm rooting for a All Black v Argentina Final anyway!

    Wouldn't rule it out tbh. Argentina probably will beat Scotland, and SA will beat Figi. Stranger things would have happened should Argentina beat SA.

    No. Because you're Irish you just can't see he's a dick.

    He also might well be the most overrated player on the planet.

    What did he do? I must've missed something.

    & Gavin Henson, surely?

    Nah, the first bit of my post was just for the sake of it tbh. Fancied fishing for a reaction. Stand by the overrated bit, though.

    Not sure about Henson myself. Reckon someone who is now best known as Gavin Henson - Charlotte Church's other half has a reasonable claim at not being that overrated anymore. Unless you were talking about hiom being a dick...

    Always thought of him as more of a lady's naughty bit rather than a bloke's tbh.

    But no, meant overrated. Or he was.
