    Doubtful. Ireland will be lucky to get to the semi's.

    Ireland desperately need to beat France and Argentina in their pool games. If they can do that, then maybe they can win the World Cup. But they may very well miss the quarters.

    Argentina aren't a bad side, but Ireland should be able to defeat them fairly easily.

    I don't know about that. Argentina were strong on their last European tour.

    Yes, but Ireland are arguably the best Northern Hemisphere side at the moment.

    I don't think Ireland can claim that. France have the wood over them.

    Well that's a really hard thing to judge, because France are a hot and cold, when they're hot none of the other northern hemisphere teams can touch them but when there not they can get beaten by scotland . While Ireland are more concistent.
    Quotes from The US Office:

    Dwight Schrute: In the wild, there is no health care. In the wild, health care is, "Ow, I hurt my leg. I can't run. A lion eats me and I'm dead." Well, I'm not dead. I'm the lion, you're dead.


    Michael Scott: [trying to motivate an employee for the basketball game] You'll be like the dwarf that follows the wizard to the end of the earth in... uh... Lord of the Rings!
    Dwight Schrute: Gimli.
    Michael Scott: ...NERD. That's why you're not on the team.

    Yes Stephen we have a good back row, as do South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, France and England . And no our scrum could not be described as "needing a little work" it is apalling, but I agree that we have a very good lineout, and IMO the best centre combination in the world.
