    Default [RWC]. Who will win the RWC 2015?

    Only 5 teams have ever made it to the final.


    (must do some'th about that flag!)

    &


    Add to them and who have made it to the semi final.

    Or perhaps, like myself you feel it's time for some new blood in the ranks of World Champions ;

    Given these rankings it seems likely to be NZ or Ire, however, these rankings are ridiculous. Does the NZ herald always go for the cheap laugh?

    how right you are, teach me to base my post on a French newspaper article.

    At the same time, I strongly feel Ireland stand a better chance of reaching the quarter finals, than Scotland does, just now (with 2 games played). Forgive me mr. burns for saying so.

    Ricardowensleydale,
    the rankings change after each game : http://www.worldrugby.org/rankings

    that Wales are currently second, doesn't mean their squad are capable of going all the way to the final.

    I fancy we'll finish second in the group. Currently top with two bonus point wins.

    What's your math for us finishing third?

    Realism?
    South Africa will beat Scotland.
    Samoa are more than capable of doing so too.

    Simple.

    RS Africa have the best overall win rate in Rugby World Cup history: the Springboks have won 25 of 29 matches (86.2 per cent). Vern Cotter is resting some players, which suggests he is targeting the Samoan game instead of this week-end's match. "Faint heart never won a fair Cup."
