Better get plenty of Ambulances ready tomorrow for when we smash the yanks in the Rugby World cup. They cant hide underneath a crash helmet or an armchair for padding. The big English pack will smash them all over the park. Id be surprised if England put out a near full side your looking at 60 plus points.

pretty boring so far . all results gone as expected 100% . Predicted this months ago and except for the wales australia game which aus will probably win every game is predictable until the quarter finals though by the time this post appears could be the next world cup

Rugby can never be boring, IMO. Get passed the results and watch the technicalities of the game. Everyone looks for a giant killer just as everyone looks for a knockout in fight sports... there's much more to it if you know the sport. Not sure Uruguay beating Fiji was predicted....?

Yes. The no. 2 ranked team didn't look the part. Let's hope Wales puts on a better show.

Dragons, you could probably say the same for any World Championship in any sport, but would you think it boring if Uruguay were destroying the Boks
A lot of the lesser teams will be happy to be taking part, being part of the spectacle a World Championship is supposed to be. They can learn a lot by playing better sides.

If only they had consulted you before the start aye .
Or better still just didnt bother at all and handed the trophy to the Kiwis .
Honestly dude , sport is about sport , you know playing the game, and of course the money that generates .
Many of those players in lesser teams , its probably the only time in their lives they will be on a world stage .
Win or lose , its their day in the spotlight , playing against better teams , learning from better teams .
What on earth is wrong with that . If you personally dont like it , then do not watch, untill the cream rises to the top ..

Obviously not know to much about rugby. I love the game but unlike soccer the small teams can win a one off game but could never get even to the semi finals never mind winning it . I am not saying teams like uruguay or georgia should not be there but that the gap between the top 10 and the rest is so massive to make the results 99% foregone conclusion .
I like watching games where either team could win.
Italy will never win the six nations and argentina will never win the rugby championship . These are not new teams but have been trying for years . Japan is a bit different and has been on the up for a few years but still only win with foreign players.
It is not just rugby , it is all sport where the money talks . Premier league , can predict what teams will be in the top 6 mostly .
Man city
arsenal
chelsea
man u
liverpool
spurs
the odd one may change now and then but that is the boring fact of the premier league

Never got into rugby.

Couldn't get my head around that one of the fundamental tactics of the game was to stop play by kicking the ball off the pitch. :shock:

Its the quickest way to gain yardage if your attacking , and the easiest way to relieve pressure if your defending .
And well done to Wales on their victory over the Wannabies . :lol: :lol:

"That is the sound of the All Blacks beginning to accelerate." Classic line from one of the announcers.
