Only 5 teams have ever made it to the final.
:nz:
:aus:
:rsa: (must do some'th about that flag!)
:eng:
&
:france:

Add to them :wales: and :arg: 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 ; :ireland:

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?

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.:redface:

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."

Over half of us were plain wrong, in spite of the fact NZ are clearly head and shoulders above the rest of the squads present.

Well done New Zealand. Looking forward to 2019 already.

Just a shame it's in Japan. I hope they do a better job than their ill-fated 7s attempt.

Somehow I just don't see the NH jumping in a plane to be there? Crowds will be down. But Japan will not want to be embarrassed so undoubtedly their govt will make sure the funding is there to ensure success. Perhaps even pay for rent-a-crowd?
But I could be wrong...perhaps some of you NH lot could indicate if Japan is genuinely a place you'd want to go to see a RWC and be looking to attend?

They didn't make a good start by canning the plans for the National Stadium. The final will be played at the 50,000 seat stadium in Yokohama
