The All Blacks seems unbeatable this year, but don't discount the French on home soil.

I'll be gunning for Wales, and of course any of the many outsiders of the tournament (Portugal) and hoping to see a strong showing from the Pacific Island nations.

Can't wait for this. I first started watching rugby in the last World Cup and while I haven't been following it quite as religiously it's a beautiful game indeed.

I was rooting for England last time round but I don't know who I'll be pulling for this year...Japan definitely, but I doubt we'll do much!

Oh yes, and All Blacks to win.

Cheers jacobus I love them.

Is Johnny Wilkinson playing I hope not I can't stand him and his get-90 degrees-angle-to-the-ground-so-my-ass- pokes-out-massive penalty kick. He sunk us.

And the All Blacks aren't unbeatable we bet them not long ago.

However I'm shattered I won't get to see any more Wendell Sailor line runs.. that's why I loved the first one.

Beautiful game? No. Better than League? Yes. Pales in comparison to AFL? Dear god yes. A bunch of blokes running five metres and then falling on top of each other? Yes.

Still don't mind it though

Ireland to hopefully win....honestly I still think we are the best team in the Northern Hemisphere on our day...though France seem to be more consistent and more options.

The All-Blacks are amazing, they are the greatest, it's not even necessary to start this competition, they are so strong

I'll be in Ireland from about the 12th on so hopefully they make it and I can soak up the atmosphere for at least two games. I miss being there for games
