Starts next Friday with the hosts Japan v Russia.

Huge games on Sat morning:
Argentina v France at 8.15
All Blacks v South Africa in later 10.45

Ireland play Scotland on Sunday morning.

Predictions:
Winner -  All Blacks
How will Ireland do  -  1/4 finals again losing to South Africa 
Surprise package -  I think Wales will get to the 1/2 finals

Would Wales getting to the semis be a surprise? They are fifth favourites and are more than capable of beating Australia or England.

Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Agree, It was the best I could come up with! 
I don’t think we’ll see any major upsets like Japan beating the Saffa’s last time.

Nobody saw it coming then either, which is why it was such a genuine shock!

Our group is the best but we have the worst possible 1/4 opponents. The 2 teams most likely to win it.

The other half is very open. Any of the 5 big teams could make the 1/2 finals.

Hard to see beyond the QFs. But at least we can see that this time. Recently we could look beyond the QF, especially if we topped the group, but this is a good focus.

Bit of a joke when you can predict the 8 quarter finalists now  

Ireland 
Scotland
NZ
S Africa
Australia
Wales
England
France 

Only possibility is Argentina beating France maybe.

cant wait for the world cup and it felt like an age since we started our cycle in the 2016 Six Nations and it been a very successful time for the team winning a grand slam, beating the all blacks twice and wins in Austrialia (Series win) and South Africa (1 win and narrow series loss) along with some successful AI wins against these nations and more. We havent hit the lights out in 2019 but seem to be improving just at the right time hopefully. I hate playing Scotland and think next weekends game is going to be tough and we have to be at our best. Always tough playing the hosts Japan who will be fired up and will be going into our game expectantly after hammering Russia in the opener. Russia should be no challenge for us but Samoa will have it challenges. Terrible to think if we do lose our first 2 games than the next 2 will mean sweet FA and be a sad end to Joes reign hopefully it wont come to that and we will be through to the QFs after the first 2 games. If we do make it to the QFs than its really a rock and a hard place situation when we will have to play one of South Africa (who are great form atm and could easily go all the way) or the All blacks (who are the all blacks and nothing needs to be siad), very very slim chance we could play Italy in the QFs but its doubtful. If the 2018 Ireland show up than this campaign could be very intersting and the country could go on a standstill. TIme will tell 

Think England and Wales are in good form and could go far, The Aussies and French are pretty hot and cold but they can improve fast at world cups and Scotland will be a challenge. Argentina have improved a lot and are known for impressing at world cups been torns in our side and getting to the semi finals

QFs
England  (Top Pool D) vs Australia (Runner up Pool C)
South Africa (top Pool B) vs Ireland (Runner up pool A Cry have a feeling Scotland will beat us)
Wales (Top Pool C) vs Argentina (Runner up pool D)
Scotland (Top Pool A) vs New Zealand (Runner up Pool B)

Semis 
England vs South Africa
Wales vs New Zealand

Final- South Africa vs New Zealand with South Africa winning 

please god im wrong and ireland make it to the final

Argentina/Scotland double next weekend  is around 8/1.

It’s not to appease anybody! That’s our flag in rugby, it’s hardly the end of the world. If you want a UI you will have to get used to not having a tricolour.
