Pool D - Argentina, France, Georgia, Ireland, Namibia

Ireland to finish ahead of France.... That way the French will avoid ABs in the Quarter Finals.

I liked watching Spencer play, but never saw enough of Tony Brown. Was he similar to Mehrtens?
Great defender was Tony Brown, a decent play maker yet nothing as great as Spencer or Mehrts in that department, better kicking than Spencer in my opinion.

I remember in this one match years and years ago, Hurricanes vs, Highlanders and Brown nailed Lomu, while Lomu was still quite fit mind you.

By himself, a little first five just crumpling the big man. Brilliant

Best pool IMO for competition anyway. Argentina France and Ireland could all impress I think and Georgia is hardly the worst side in the world.

I think the England/Yarps/Samoa pool is the best one actually. Can see the Samoans tipping the poms over actually

Easily the tightest pool, without a shadow of a doubt. Mind you, Georgia are one of the worst teams in the tournament.

They impressed me once years back and I don't think I've ever forgot it, the tight five only though mind you. No idea of their current state but.

And I wouldn't count the Samoans out of it but I would go with the bigger teams for that pool, yet the 3 teams in this pool have all got something going for them. Should be interesting to see how the match goes.

Ireland for me.

In the six nations Ireland would have beat France if it wasn't for the poor defending at the end i.e missed tackles, in the world cup Ireland will have a bigger and better squad and really if we beat France, that should guarantee 1st place.

The players are there, there's a good mixture between youth and experience, I mean players like O'Driscoll, Trimble, O'gara, Darcy and Paul O'conell, we could easily get to the semi's.

France, Ireland and Argentina... Very tough to predict. I would say that France win the group: they play at home, so they have an advantage. Ireland and Argentina? I would pick the Pumas.

I hope they drug Test all the French Players randomly and thoroughly, because after Bernard Laport's comments of accusing the ABs I feel its a smoke screen to cover something illegal the Frenchies may themselves have been up to...I hope they get tested by neutral drug testers fairly thoroughly.

Georgia to be the bolters from this group for mine.

I can't wait to hear the band strike up their national anthem. "Georgia....Geooorgiiiaa....I've got Georgia on my miiind"

Brings a tear to the eye every time

Well here we go, less than 12 hours out from the opening match (France vs Argentina). I'm picking France to pick up a few late tries and win easily enough in the end after a tight first half. Should be an interesting match worth watching!

Quite excited about the opening game, although I'll be getting up at 6am and watching the opening ceremony. Like Somerset, I'm predicting a French victory, although I'd absolutely love to see Argentina get up and win.
