Do the Crusaders win literally every year. Seems incredibly boring, no wonder people have stopped watching.
As well as that Scotland is in the Ireland & SA pool, so only 2 of the 5 best teams in the world can make the semis.Further confirmation that the draw for the World Cup is horribly imbalanced. England and Australia (or alternatively, Wales & Argentina) are likely to make semi finals whilst two of France, Ireland, NZ and SA won't.
I see Eddie Jones was making a **** of himself again. Absolutely delighted that he's no longer part of the England set up, just nothing likeable about him at all.
Who controls the timing of the draw?
IRB I'd guess?
It's none of these, it's purely the sorting hat in consultation with Gandalf in the library with the candlestick.They call themselves World Rugby now
The other daft thing is that more rankings points are given to World Cup games over normal ones. England should be well ahead of Scotland in the rankings by the time the tournament finishes.As well as that Scotland is in the Ireland & SA pool, so only 2 of the 5 best teams in the world can make the semis.
