I am smiling all the way. I am rooting for SA and japan tomorrow, of course more for the boks, just sad to be facing japan, would have liked to have faced them in the semi's.Ireland loses here they drop to 5th place, the Springboks go to 4th place. Australia is now, currently, ranked below Japan at 7th. Yes, Japan is #6 in the world.
Mm, I don't know hey. I think I'd rather go against the French. Wales have had the wood over us recently.I am smiling all the way. I am rooting for SA and japan tomorrow, of course more for the boks, just sad to be facing japan, would have liked to have faced them in the semi's.
SA is likely to win and the french is likely to win their clash, Would have liked to have faced wales, better odds.
I don’t know about the moral in the French camp, since their captain and coach clashed, they don’t look to have their mindset in the right place. However, they have revolted at the 2011 and at the 2015 RWC, and in 2011 their revolt made them a better team.Mm, I don't know hey. I think I'd rather go against the French.

Dont really agree, Ireland never really pitched up to play. Australia have been piss poor of late.All we can hope now (assuming we make the final) is that England and NZ knock seven shades of sh*t out of each other and the winner limps into the final to face us. Those were two of the more commanding and domineering performances you're likely to see in knockout rugby.
I think it's worse than that. They timed it so that they would beat Japan and win the group. Play us in the quarters and Wales in the semi final and then take on the all blacks to determine the number one team.That is what I mean, they were riding the glory wave of being number 1, and did not really play. They thought it would be a given that they will win.
