    France will dominate. I'd love for the Pumas to get up and defeat Ireland.

    Not without a fly half. They were shocking at Twickenham after Skrela went off.

    I'd rather see Ireland and Argentina go through personally.

    I can't see France dropping a game to either Ireland or Argentina in the group stages of this World Cup, especially if they play most of their 1st XV.

    This is such an awful draw. France, Ireland, & Argentina are all ranked above Scotland, Wales & ourselves and yet one's going home before the quarters.

    I'll actually take France (boo, hiss) & Ireland despite Argentina beating Ireland 2-0 in the series over these last two weekends. Rather like ourselves it was very much a second or third choice Ireland.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    True though, but aren't Argentina are tough mob at home and I don't think many teams like going there.

    Playing Argentina in Buenis Aries (sp) is like playing the Bulls at Loftus Versfield, one of the toughest asks in rugby.
