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.

"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

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.
