    So - we've had the first couple of games, and so far it's business as usual as the "big-boys" thrash the "minows" (Well, apert from Scotland, as whilst they won, it was hardly a 'blue-wash' was it...)

    The real work for the MiW (Men in White) starts next week when they face South Africa. And we already have injury worries with Dawson, Grewcock, Bracken, Gomersall & Hill, and we all know how dirty the SA lot play.

    So, after the opening matches, who do you think will win the World Cup?

    Vote - NOW!

    No idea who is better than who, but I found out over the weekend that some of the games will be on my satellite system, so maybe I'll check out a game or two and see what the fuss is about. ;)

    For our USAnians out there, key dates (i.e. when your lot are playing) are:

    Oct 15 Fiji V USA K.O: 17.00
    Oct 20 Scotland v USA K.O: 19:30
    Oct 27 Japan v USA K.O: 19.30
    Oct 31 France v USA K.O: 19.30

    I'm guessing the match on the 20th could cause a ruckus on the forum.... ;)

    But I'll be cheering for you Yanks on the 31st! :thumb:

    Although I be a welsh man, it would appear that england have a stronger team,
    althogh the "All Blacks" are a good team....

    Imposable you say? I say nothing is imposable! You all are most likely too young to remember the 1984 Winter Olympics where they said that it was imposable for the US to beat the USSR for the gold in ice hockey... ;)

    I know it's probably a lost cause to root for the US here, but I gotta root for the home team! :rock:

    If any one thinks the US will win they are delusional :D. England all the way however New Zeland are very good.
