    More than one Contepomi in the Argentine squad I'm afraid. You need to specify which one.

    Oh, & all you Mitchell-backers might want a rethink too. From the Beeb:

    Australia: Chris Latham; Adam Ashley-Cooper, Stirling Mortlock, Matt Giteau, Lote Tuqiri; Berrick Barnes, George Gregan; Wycliff Palu, George Smith, Rocky Elsom, Dan Vickerman, Nathan Sharpe, Guy Shepherdson, Stephen Moore, Matt Dunning.
    Replacements: Adam Freier, Al Baxter, Hugh McMeniman, Stphen Hoiles, Phil Waugh, Julian Huxley, Drew Mitchell.

    Replacements: Mealamu, Tialata, Jack, Masoe , Leonard, Evans, Toeava.
    I'd suggest the same thing for those who are selecting Drew Mitchell, he's unlikely to be in the starting XV.

    EDIT: Doh, probably should have read a bit further down

    As I pointed out with Jamee's prediction there are two Contepomis (twin brothers, as it goes) in the Argentine squad. You have to specify which one.

    Quarter Final update, part 1:

    Australia 10 England 12
    First try: Tuqiri
    Tries: 1


    Vimes: 8 (Tuqiri - 5, 2 tries - 3)
    Brumby: 6 (England by 5 - 5, 3 tries - 1)
    Jamee: 6 (England by 1 - 5, 3 tries - 1)
    Stefano: 5 (Tuqiri - 5)
    Pup Clarke: 1 (3 tries - 1)
    Matteh: 1 (3 tries - 1)
    altoz: 1 (3 tries - 1)

    New Zealand 18 France 20
    First Try: McAlister
    Tries: 4


    Clapo: 10 (France by 6 - 5, 4 tries - 5)
    Perm: 5 (4 tries - 5)
    Somerset: 5 (4 tries - 5)
    Jason: 3 (5 tries - 3)
    PhoenixFire: 3 (5 tries - 3)
    Vimes: 3 (5 tries - 3)
    headhunter: 3 (5 tries - 3)
    Matteh: 1 (6 tries - 1)
    ohtani: 1 (6 tries - 1)
    Stefano: 1 (6 tries - 1)
    The Bunny: 1 (6 tries - 1)
    altoz: 1 (6 tries - 1)


    No score unless otherwise stated. Two upsets mean low-scoring affairs tip-wise, but the big winners are Vimesy with 11 points for the day & Clapo whose inspired pick of the French to win nets him 10 from the second QF after drawing a blank in the first.

    1) The Bunny 123
    2) Somerset 110
    3) Brumby 104
    4) Matteh 103
    5) Perm 98
    6) ohtani 97
    =7) Pup Clarke 96
    =7) PhoenixFire 96
    9) Stefano 95
    10) Clapo 88
    11) Jason 80
    12) Jamee 79
    13) altoz 70
    14) Vimes 68
    15) headhunter 54
