    Minnows

    Unfortunate for Scotland & Afghanistan as it would have been awesome if it was 16 nations tournament. Especially Afghanistan in Asian conditions. How much boost it would have been for the sport if they played...

    Anyways which of the 4 teams do u guys think can make a difference? Why?

    Ireland. Other 3 aren't good enough I feel.

    Afghanistan could've made a difference had they peaked earlier....
    5-0

    Don't see any of those teams challenging any of the top nations but Ireland do have Joyce now so they are a team to look out for. They were unlucky not to get Hamish Marshall as well. That would have been interesting to see.

    Could a mod please add none of the above to the poll please?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    I went with Kenya. I don't really see them making a difference as such, but the other three are worse.

    Reckon Kenya is a far poorer side than the Dutch and Irish these days.

    Should be an irrelevant option in there IMHO.
    1) Ross is Boss.
    2) See point 1.

    Yeah Kenya are massively over-rated these days. There's about five lots of daylight between Ireland and Kenya.

    This seems to suggest that you are right. I must confess that I had no idea about Kenya's recent results. My perception of them being an okay side (for a minnow) has probably got to do with their performance in 2003.
