    I know it's hard to believe, but the Cricket World Cup did finally end up finishing.

    This one was Rugby, you know, with the funny shape balls?

    Why is everyone treating me like an idiot? All I said was that I didn't think that South Africa were the best team in the World Cup. Whether they were not is everyone's opinion. I just think that there were teams who played better. They won the World Cup with my opinion of them not being the best team, but they won. Congratulations to them.

    Can't use the 'oh i'm blonde' excuse and have people thinking you're Stephen Hawking.

    Australia played poorly against England, NZ got owned by France, England were hammered by SA. France are too on/off. SA absolutely hammered England and even when England stepped up in the final they still had enough.

    Because you've been known to make silly statements in the past. South Africa were better than England, who really only performed well in two, maybe three games.

    It's OK Piper... South Africa weren' t the best side at the World Cup and didn't play great rugby. Argentina played the best rugby, IMO, and NZ, Australia and France would've all won if they'd been on SA's side of the draw.

    Really can't agree there. It was effective, but it was as ugly as anything came up with, save for their efforts in the bronze match. & It's obviously easier to be brave in that than the final.

    Feels much like '99 now for me, NZ the best team but got taken out by a French team who couldn't repeat the dose, leaving the draw open for the team with the best defence to take the crown.

    I admit that England played crap in the pool stages, but when it really mattered they played well. I think that South Africa only ever went through a few 'gears'. They weren't the side that we had seen earlier in the year.
