Lomu takes it all in his considerable stride as he moves into round 2, but Matt Burke polls a creditable 5 votes (all Aussies, hmmm...) & Jonny Wilkinson makes certain of pommie presence in the next round with a comfortable win.

The All-Blacks flying wing who ran in an impressive 7 tries in 2003 takes on arguably the world's best current full-back who ran in 5 tries in a single game in the same tournament & the man whose first ever dropped goal took Oz to the final in 1999 takes on the flying potato himself Keith Wood, who once ran in 4 tries of his own v the US in 1999.

"Even when England lost 5-0 in 2006-07 I don't remember them folding like this. This is as bad as I have seen from an England side."

The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

Well, in Battle 6 Bernie Larkham strikes a blow for injury-prone, scrum-cap-wearing backs everywhere with a 6-4 win, but Battle 5 is tied up at 5-5 so I get the casting vote!! As much as I think Latham is the better player, I have to go with Howlett as he's done more in world cup games. Latham hasn't really ever been a first-choice in a world cup so far.

The All-Blacks main point-scoring weapon from 95 & 99 (but not, controversially, from 2003) takes on the man who, more than anyone, was the face of the rainbow nation in their home triumph in 1995 & another Saffie winner from the same year and one of the finest scrum-halves of any era takes on the pride of the Scots and the all-time leading points scoring in world cup history.
