Probably a SA vs ABs final?

I think the AB's could be in the final but there are a couple of others I won't write off yet. I think Ireland are number 1 atm, and NZ 2, Ireland are a pretty good team at the moment!

Now I'm all calmed down , watching the pre qualifying F1 race in Singapore.

My sister lives in Brissy and us formula 1 mad, we go halves in Kayo as I can watch all my sports and the banter I love.

Nothing is certain in a RWC.
I think i is more likely a NH team vs. ABs but who knows.

Exactly. I was almost certain SA had it in the bag last night at one stage. There are a lot of strong teams this time. I have the feeling it will be someone else aa much as I want it to be NZ, as captain Kieran Reid us retiring after the WC.

Yeah England are looking pretty strong. If their key players (Tuilagi and Billy Vunipola) stay injury free they will be tough to beat.

SA certainly looked more polished. ABs always dangerous, but they didn't look as professional and slick as they did when Dan Carter, Richie Mckaw etc were playing and they were in their prime. SA, could have won that, they just continually did box kicks, gaining ground, but giving away possession. This WC is wide open! Some absolute cracking games coming up! Wales vs Australia will be good.

Except Beauden Barrett. He was man of the match and deserved it.

Looking forward to my two games today, especially Ireland and Scotland.

We went to a number of games when the RWC was in Brisbane.
The Scottish fans were delightful,kilts,doc martins and gorgeous accents.
The Irish fantastic as well.
I've always found them to be great since.

The English fans,obnoxious and unpleasant.

Pre-kids DH and I went to an AB v Wales match.  It was absolutely fantastic and the Welsh fans were great.  There was singing and banter and it was just great - esp when the music was a bit of Tom Jones playing !!

Obviously being a Kiwi - I would love the ABs to go all the way but I also loved the Aus v Fiji game the other day - damn, how fast can those Fijian players run ?  They were so amazing.

I think Ireland is the number one team in the world at the moment - so maybe they will reach the finals.

The Fijians were brilliant. Am I dreaming to hope that Tonga slaughter England today!

The Irish are number 1 currently. I'm also hoping for the AB's but Ireland are my number 2 in the cup and I'm hoping they go far.!

Ireland peaked last year, seem to be struggling in 2019. Be good to see them do well.

Make them hurt like they do to everyone else.

Hmmm if Ireland are supposed to be number 1, I think the ABs will roll them base son their performance against Scotland.

Would love to see Tonga beat England!

DH and I have just decide that we are going to the 2023 RWC in France.   It’ll be the 200th anniversary of the game so a landmark event

We’ve got 4 years to save!

Oohh Tonga I liked that!

Yes,  I would like them to win as well!
