Its nonsense. Normal service would be England topping the group especially at home.. And i am not saying that because i am biased. England are a WC team- we have won one and got to 3 finals. This isnt AI time or 6nations time. This is the WC we are talking about

So are australia , they've won 2 and been to three finals . And thats not what i'm saying . I said unless Australia decide to screw us over which wasnt meant in the literal sense , more like a poor game in the group stages , they lose but turn up the heat in the QF and beat us AGAIN like what happened in 2011. The Aussies would never lose on purpose , no team would do that but sometimes the other team is just on it .

As for GunGerms , i never said we dont fear Ireland , i said the chances of us facing ireland are small. They require us to come second in our group which is something i dont see happening since our biggest threat is Scotland and Samoa no offence to them . Besides the only reason we have a better record against Australia than we do Ireland is because we play them more and they visit the Republic more times than is healthy Very Happy We've ony lost 4 times to Ireland since 2000 , 10 tests, with 8 of those held in Ireland . Our record in Australia is much worse i think

loads of teams lose on purpose if it means they get an easier next tie- its happened in plenty of sports before. dont assume anything.

but i do agree with you. Its very unlikley this situation would happen in union. However i did assume that is what you meant

Rugby is a strange game.

england will not fear Aus at all, we will fear Wales more, Wales will fear Aus more than they will fear Eng. Eng will fear SA more than we would probally fear NZ!!

Eng wouldn't fear France, NZ would possibly fear France more than any other team!


match ups and rugby. Its all a bit random.

I'm not convinced it will take a poor game from them - just being beaten by England. Which given that England are at home and Aus have lost 4 of the last 5 against them isn't unlikely. And if you want to look at world cup form I'd point out that Aus haven't beaten England in the world cup since the game went pro nearly 20 years ago and that England have knocked Aus out of 3 of the last 5 tournaments.

And - despite their repeated failure to close out a game against them Wales are more than good enough to beat Aus as well. If anything surprises me it's how much Wales are being overlooked. Gatland did a superb job with the players' conditioning for the '11 world cup, and if he does the same again this time they could be very very good this time round.

In all honesty I can't call who will make it out of that group nor in what order.

Right thing to do, Hammer. I stayed away from here through the new year until now and I'll be gone again until the WC when the 6N is over.

I've overfed on the European thing and have indigestion now Wink

I apologies for missing last week (new 'puter software).

Ireland will (if they don't lose) bounce straight back to 4th.

BUT look at the 6Ns (B) games.

Georgia and Romania will continue to close in on Italy so long as they don't lose to Portugal.

I always argued that there should be promotion into and out of the 6Ns (or better still, a multi-divisional NH 4Ns) based on end-of season rankings

New OP.

That's one tough weekend coming from Ireland, Portnoy!!

Play France on Saturday and Scotland on Sunday?

I think people are working Schmidt too hard here!  There is only so much video playbacks he can handle in a week.

BTW, I don't think we can get back to third at the weekend no matter how well we play, can we?  I may be figuring all wrong but it doesn't seem so.

After checking that Ireland aren't playing three or four times this week, there's a new OP.

Ireland and France can gain places in the greasy pole and Georgia could supplant Italy in the Euro top 6.

How are the 6Ns administered for promoting / relegating teams?

A glass ceiling, I suspect.

You're quietly confident your blokes can win in Cardiff though, fly?
Think I'd rather see the gap widen than Wales overtake us without winning against us these last few years.
If they do manage to upset Ireland... then more incentive for us the pull our socks up later in the year.

Scotland are .52 ahead of Japan. They can lose a maximum of .435. So they will be no worse than 10th

This is silly. The ref called off a match between Japan and HK because of rain. The result is deemed a draw, and so Japan drop two places in the rankings.

What's crazy - or at least intrestin' - is that guys can't seem to see risks involved in a 'rain' storm in Hong Kong. Yeah, we get tons of rain here in Northern Europe and play in it all winter but it's kind of a different beast to heavy rain in the tropics, as an Aussie should know. That rain can come with some pretty lethal lightening strikes.

Water, lightening and players ain't a good mix. I can understand that game being called off.

There's no need at all for such a match to count at all towards the rankings. There would be howls of protest from any top teams who suffered that way, so it's disappointing that there are no calls to review the rules just because it was lowly Japan who got a raw deal.

And looking at blood colours in the event of head knocks - I wonder if they'll compare and contrast like in the Saffer/Blecks game.

If Ireland beat Wales they could overtake the boks at no2.
If Australia have a big win they could stroll into no.2.

Ireland are now ranked #2 in the world taking over South Africa, not sure of how an SA win will affect that.

It's conjested.

Wayne Barnes is refereeing. I fancy an Australia win. With Barnes anything can happen.
Barnes was excellent. He probably had the best performance of the weekend after Argentina.

Got to agree with your summary of Barnes.

Poite made mistakes that set the Argies on their way.
But they deserved it (just).

Yawn. Barnes is the worst ref in world rugby by a long shot. Absolutely dire.

World Rugby obviously disagree given that he's frequently given top fixtures. Most sane fans disagree with you too.

Luckily he's pencilled in for your quarter-final clash with NZ so you can see him at close-quarters again (and maybe change your mind) OK

Thats debateable. World rugby axed him after an Ireland v Wales 6 nations game from the list of elite referees in the past and they also sent him to New Zealand to referee a number of NPC games to give him the opportunity to repair the damage he created after the '07 France v NZ debacle. Its pretty obvious they dont think that much of him.

The quarter final referees have not been announced yet. I have watched him very closely over the last 10 years in approx 14 Ireland games and I can confirm categorically he is the worst referee I can remember in rugby union.
