Rhe final dews have been announcws and will be as follows:-
Pool A: Australia, England, Wales, Oceana 1, Play-off winner
Pool B: South Africa, Samoa, Scotland, Asia 1, Americas 2
Pool C: New Zealand, Argentina, Tonga, Europe 1, Africa 1
Pool D: France, Ireland, Italy, Americas 1, Europe 2
This really is a very difficult pool and probably th most competitive - with Australia having to battle it out with England and Wales in that pool. Wales was poor in the recent tests - but is likely to improve sunstantially. Although Austyralia beat the POMS in the recent test - its likely to be a problem for Australia in the RWC,
Not a very difficult pool - the strongest opposition will come from Samoa. I cannot see how the Springboks will have another bugger-up against Scotland like they managed in the most recent test. We have never lost a test against Samoa in the WC - so there is real hope for us to advance to the next pjase with relative ease.
New Zealand also have a relatively easy pool to contest with the only real opposition to come from Argentina. Should be a walk-in-the park for the All Blacks
Relatively easy to predict but the qualifiers will probably be France and ireland. Cannot see an upset in this pool.
The quarterfinals could be difficult for SA - since their opponent can come from either of Australia, England or Wales
