Re: Official Rugby World CUp (and the lead up tests) Thread
Can you believe it's almost Tri-Nations time again?
This one is going to be great: a few AB's retired, some new faces in the Bok squad, Aussies with arguably the best coach in the world. Anything can happen.
Wouldn't read too much into the current tests though. The northern hemisphere teams on tour are seriously below par. Wales copped a beating last week against the Boks and this weekend it could (and probably will) get worse. The Irish hung in for a while against the AB's, but you can't stop the inevitable. But I really fear for the depleted England side about to play them - could see a big, big score.
