    We appreciate that! Since I wasn't aware we even had a rugby team, I have to ask a very ignorant noobie question: Do we stand a chance against France, or do they not give up as easily in sports as they do elsewhere?

    :D

    /ducking to avoid the responses

    Well, then you'll have to get them for us! I don't care if the U.S. wins the Cup...as long as France doesn't.

    :D

    Nah - calm down. It's only the pool games at the moment. Top two teams from each pool will enter the knockouts:

    http://www.rugbyworldcup.com/RugbyWorldCup/EN/Tournament/Matches/

    USA still have another three matches to rack up the points. If you scroll down the page on that link above, you'll see the format of the knock outs to come. The following link shows the standings in the pools at the moment:

    It's not all bad though, at least you managed to get a bonus point for loosing by less than 7 points.
