world cup 2007 (rugby)

England doesn't look too strong this time and my rugby heart has always wear black, so I would bet for the kiwis. As France is the hosting nation I won't be bother looking at a final or semifinal New Zealand-France. I still remember that glorious match in the 1999 world cup semifinals.

Methods of Inquiry

<t>No, Y made a lame try, a fallacy because his statement implied that Dhimmitude is equal to pay taxes and obey law.
