Group A's tasty - all the other groups are boringly predictable; top two from C & D with Scotland edging out Samoa in B.

If it goes as previous. It will be Winner A v Runner up B, Winner B v Runner up A and so on................

I don't think so - there are some rogue rankings this time. England v Wales is going to be some occasion.

It sure will be, hopefully the Aussies will be put to the sword by both. Wishfull thinking on my part...

I'm just glad we've ducked Samoa - nasty set of bastards !!

Wales get two home games (Cardiff) in a deal done with the RFU which got England the RWC. That being the case will it then be Wales V England in Cardiff ?

Time for a new thread methinks.
This is well removed from the autumn internationals.
 
RWC 2015 Pool Draw

Pool A
Play Off Winner
Oceania 1
Wales
England
Australia
That could go any one of three ways and might be one of those pools it's better to be runner up in.

Pool B
Americas 2
Asia 1
Scotland
Samoa
South Africa
You have to fancy SA but if Scotland pull out all the stops they could finish second.

Pool C
Africa 1
Europe 1
Tonga
Argentina
New Zealand
Hard to call between Tonga and Argentina to be runner up.

Pool D
Europe 2
Americas 1
Italy
Ireland
France
Looks the most evenly matched, probably France 1 Ireland 2 but will be interesting!
 
Group A: Difficult group, not easy to pick a 1 and 2

Group B: Saffers will go through and hopefully by the RWC we will be a lot better and give Samoa and good go for 2nd.

Group 3: NZ and the Argies to go through

Group 4: Depends on what France team turn up and I think the Italians could throw a spanner in someones works
