I read the list multiple times too. I guess I just couldn't focus on it because it was right under the header. I'm prone to doing that now and again.

I think that's the channel we watched a rebroadast of the Tonga game on, so hopefully I'll remember to check it out. We did have fun watching, despite not knowing the rules

oh yeah, i hear you. i've looked at the list so many times over the past few months i basically have it memorised so i knew they were in pool a, so i knew where to look in the post. i do it all the time!

ah, yeah. my mom watched the opening ceremonies with me () on that channel. luckily i'm pretty familiar with the rules being a rugby league fan. rugby's not as awesome but it's still fun!

I and most of the rugby fan world would strongly disagree with this!

My picks for the midweek and weekend action in the Cup:

Tonga vs Canada
New Zealand vs Japan (though I doubt we'll repeat our famous 1995 thrashing of them, 145-17!)
France vs Canada

Scotland vs Georgia
Argentina vs Romania
England vs Georgia
(Though I wouldn't write the Georgians off. They gave England a right fucking scare in 2003. If the Scots have a bad day, Georgia may upset them.)

Russia vs USA (though Russia almost beat the US earlier this year!)
Australia vs Ireland (but you'd damn well hope the Irish can beat them)

Samoa vs Namibia
South Africa vs Fiji
Wales vs Samoa

When I'm in New Zealand and look back across the Tasman, the Australian political scene looks like absolute hysterical madness.

When I'm in Australia and look back across the Tasman, New Zealand's attitude towards the All Blacks in the World Cup looks like absolute hysterical madness.

I love how in the space of a week, the country's gone from "WE CANNOT LOOSE!!!!!!111!1" to "WE'VE LOST TEH CUP ALREDEY!!!11 SPECTAR OV 2007!!!!1!@11!"

Oh well, I think I'd rather a country that is irrational about a sporting team rather than a country that is irrational about things that actually affect the planet and people's lives long-term.
