A difficult one because some of the more obscure nations' (Pacific Island, Japan, Namibia??) could have had players there in 2007. Teams that are there now might not have been permitted at the 2007 tournament either.

Besides Rory Best for Ireland, the only one who could have been around in 2007 is Rob Kearney? Possibly beast for SA as he seems to have been around forever now.

Thompson for Japan = correct.

Mikey is correct - there’s a few of the smaller rugby nations with players from 2007. Canada, Namibia, Georgia and USA have players on the list.

However, Italy have 3 more from 2007 too. And Scotland have one too!

Wonder how many players from 2007 are coaches at this year's cup. Andy Farrell with Ireland. Steve Borthwick with England, and Mike Catt with Italy come to mind from the England 2007 squad.

If Georgia are on the list then I'm going to take a wild guess, Gorgodze.

Yes - Barclay is the Scot on the list.

One of the Georgian players is fairly famous from memory.

Georgia are the only team to have played in four World Cups so far. Uruguay make their 4th this time around. The skipper of the 99 Uruguay team has a son in the 2015 and 2019 squads,  but the dad only played in one WC I believe, being their coach in 2003.

Was going to go to town to Oracle for this as yes, Gorgodze (great player by the way) did indeed retire from international rugby in 2017 but he does seem to be named in the Gerogian Team on the official rugby world cup site.

I'm sure there's been some form of clerical errror here!

I saw there was a guessing game going on and tried to scroll up so I could guess without spoiling the answer.

I miscounted the years, I knew Parisse had been around the longest but thought it was 4, not 5. 5 is one hell of a stint.

Hard to call. On one hand it is highly offensive on the other it's paying homage to Japanese history.

It would be the same if the WC was being held in Scotland and visiting teams did ads with them all in kilts running about the hills and glens. I'm sure many here would be appaulled at the portryal, but yet when you look  at things we sell like Porridge oats, whisky and shortbread, we're perfectly happy for this stereotype to be used when its working in our favour.

Anyway, I'm jsut laughing at the fact that Owen Farrell is wearing armoured shoulder pads - Shoulder Boi!

France v New Zealand 1999 is still one of my favourite matches of all time. The trouble is, I expect France to play like that every time I watch them!

Missed that one Luckless

France vs NZ 99 was indeed a smacker of a game. It was the absolute greatest example of showing you how a team can want it more than another.

Its really odd how the mentality of a team can ebb and flow form game to game (and even during a game). I'm not a Psychologist or the like, but I do find this kind of thing interesting.

A team can be a bit flat but then one player makes a massive tackle on someone and it seems to lift the collective spirits of the team. Then someone else in that team make a good break and this gets your team pumped again and before you know it you are all brimming with confidence and playing like posessed demons.

Teams can be like little hives of collectiveness

It's worth a watch - Jonny Wilkinson tries to explain how momentum can change like that, when they're discussing that match, as it happens.

I won't spoil it by saying what the number one try is!

So you think the game might be postponed?

No-one is predicting that so far but we'll have to keep an eye on it. Main gripe in Japan is that it's a three-day weekend, with a holiday on Monday, and we could be washed out.

What part of Japan are you in? Any recommendations for things, to do, see, eat in and near Osaka and Kobe?

Tokyo here. I'm not as familiar with Osaka and Kobe but Shinsaibashi in Osaka is a treasure trove of good food and booze, while Kitashinchi has a wide variety of nighlife.

If anyone comes through Tokyo, drop me a message, and I'll see if I can hook up.
