New Zealand for me. England will get to the semi finals.

NZ have had a turbulent couple of years, and they often stutter in world cups.

I voted England but can see any of South Africa, Australia and Wales winning it as well.

What makes you think South Africa? I left them out because I don’t think they have a sniff.

They were the only team to beat NZ in last years rugby championship.
Wales are the form team aren't they? Still voted New Zealand.
I've gone for Wales.

I liked that one, assuming the audience can't spell of course.

After watching the first round of the Rugby Championship at the weekend, Australia should be nowhere near this list.
Good result for England beating Wales in a World Cup warm up match.

Good result for England today I had a nice little acca up with the rugby Australia at +13 South Africa -5 and I had England at -2 although you could have got them at +4 today with Man City and Celtic from yesterday. World Cup is anyone’s but I think South Africa are looking strong again they beat the Argies easy last night in their own back yard. 

Scotland have the easiest group 


Pool A: Ireland. Scotland. Japan. Russia. Samoa.

Pool B: New Zealand. South Africa. Italy. Namibia. Canada.

Pool C: England. France. Argentina. USA. Tonga.

Pool D: Australia. Wales. Georgia. Fiji. Uruguay.

I think quarter finalists will be Ireland,Scotland,NZ,SA,Australia,Wales and  probably England and France but Argentina will have a big say in England’s group 

Never read to much in to world cup warm ups.
It’s England v Wales again this Saturday the result will be a win for wales in Cardiff 

Think the ' boks are looking a tidy outfit, but,  at 7/1, not worth a punt for me. 

Australia drifting to 14/1, indicates they're not too strong,  but look at the Ashes. They have more of a winning mentality than us. Certainly worth a tenner

Hero,  you gonna amend the poll to include SA  or can't it be done retrospectively?

It only allowed me to have five options. At the time it was a toss up between SA and the Aussie. 

I don’t think I can edit it now.

Non of the Southern Hemisphere teams looked good in the Championship, I don’t think any of them were taking it seriously.

Even the officiating was off the mark.

Every team (and officials) I’ve seen seen to be resting players, and trying out different tactics.

I’d have put England from yesterday up against all of them and been confident of the win but that’s not how the World Cup is going to go down.
