    I don't think they'll make the semi's actually, not that I've looked at who they are likely to play in the quarters, but it's just a hunch.

    Yeah its abit of a worry that we only put on 6 points in the first half against an understrength Welsh team when we dominated posession - and that was better then the first week.

    Cliffy will be one of our best though, hes in great form.

    If Wilkinson falls over himself by then, it will be a walk in the park. If his fit England by 2 points.

    have to laugh at the Aussie media talking up Australia after the "destroyed" Fiji 49-0 on the weekend.

    Didnt our Juniors just put 60 on them the week before.

    Especially as only about 4 of that starting Fijian line-up are expected to be in the first XV come World Cup time...

    Get your money on now then fellas. You can get 11/2 on Samoa qualifying above us.

    The thing is, as well as Samoa did in 2003, we still won by 13 points. I don't wanna come off as the token rabid Pom, but there's no way I can see Samoa beating us. They concede too many penalties at beakdowns so we'll kick the game out til they have to play catch up Rugby.

    Aust looking real good against the Saffies leading 16-10 at the break. Vickerman and Gregan playing superbly. Burger is also getting very involved, though he did "accidentally" poke gits in the eye.
