Not yet. Good day for the southern hemisphere. Except the Argies.

To be fair, the Aussies looked awful, and the Jaapies were lucky.
As for Scotland...

Not to change the subject, but how will the placement for the next RWC be handled. I understand that 1-4 at the head of the pools, but are 5-8 placed in reverse order so Fra and Eng will be in the same pool? Just curious if anyone knows for sure. If I have understood correctly these rankings for the top 12 teams will be used to set up the pools for the next RWC on Dec. 3rd with final two in each pool to be added later.

Was pleased with our play against Romania. Was surprised to see Argentina get manshamed by Ireland. Shocked that Hansen does not have Hore booked back to NZ after his disgraceful act, 6 week ban minimum.

My understanding is that the rankings dictate seeding but teams will be drawn from each seeding 'pool'. So, as it currently stands, NZ, SA, Aus and France will each have a pool, Eng, Ire, Wal & Sam will each be drawn into one of the pools then Arg, Ita, Ton & Sco. I'm guessing that Tonga and Samoa will be kept apart. Don't know if Argentina will automatically draw France.

Oh, and fuck the IRB/6N citing committee. Only a five week ban (to include the Highlander's' pre-season matches) for the GBH perpetrated by Hore is a joke.

Not really.
As far as I can see, the AIG AB's have yet to fire on all cylinders for longer than 40 minutes (the first half against Wales).
They are not playing to potential.

He should lose his AB jersey.

It was telling that when the ABs went down to 14 players they seemed to step up half a gear and still seemed to have a lot more in reserve.

They have always lacked a plan B when Carter is on the field.
Whereas Cruden is not quite as skillful, he seems to adapt better to changes.

Thanks for the info wildman, I got confused if they handled it like the NCAA tourney or not, but now that I read closer your draw description is right on. So just to prove I'm thankful I am going to predict an ABs blowout of eng so that it will be close or possibly and eng. win.

However, because i need to make at least one prediction that seems to be correct so I am picking aus over wal by about 15. I hope it will be the inverse, but wales is too depleted and without a chef.

And regarding the pools, wildman you are right - I don't think I will be able to recognize an RWC unless fra and arg are in the same pool.
