Re: Official Rugby World CUp (and the lead up tests) Thread
Didn't Italy recently beat Wales? And they've come close against a few more big names. I wouldn't write them off completely, although Scotland also seem to be much improved from last year this time.
We start with a tough match against Samoa and we'll do well to come away injury free. Because next up is England - one of three huge games we'll have to win if we want the cup. Hope Brian "The Chiropractor" Lima doesn't do too much damage to our midfield in his 4th World Cup.
I also feel that Argentina could perhaps pull off a surprise victory in their group and maybe even pip Ireland to the quarters. Possible, but not very likely.
