This weekend we had some Autumn trials. It is interesting to see the success of the 'emerging' teams like Argentina and Italy while Ireland seem to be peaking. Some of the players are now playing their best rugby. Unlike soccer, there is one rugby team representing the whole of the island. Anyone care to predict for 2007?

Historically the kiwis always go into the world cup as favourites. Then the other teams crank things up a gear and they fall apart. However Graham Henry is a really good coach so maybe this time.

QuoteOriginally posted by: QuaternionHistorically the kiwis always go into the world cup as favourites.

They are favourites, they also have 2 teams, each one could probably win from any other team. QuoteDespite such successes, Henry has attracted some controversy for his rotation policy, although most of this has receded as Henry has won nineteen out of the last twenty test matches

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.
