Ja, our teams are usually very rusty after a bye week in Super Rugby.

The only good thing about this is that Rassie have more time to prepare for the QF. He has a tough job because he doesn’t know who to prepare for yet. Could be Scotland, Ireland or Japan.

Will be nice to get the Irish.

I agree with the Italy captain. Had NZ needed the points, world rugby would have bent over and played the game for them.

I dont agree. Rugby is only a sport and not worth risking peoples life. Both matches wont have made difference who qualify for the quaters.

I’m not saying play in the storm oom. World rugby should have had a plan b. This didn’t just pop up out of nowhere. And the matches impacted by this weather most certainly have a say in which teams qualify, ask Scotland.

No one is saying that lives should be risked. World Rugby are getting rightly pilloried for having ten years to prepare for this tournament and not having any contingency plans other than cancelling one of the few games of the pools of consequence.

This is a huge blackmark on the sport and tournament.

If I were not afraid of stereotyping, I'd say World Rugby must be run by the French! Lapasset's heritage may be?

But for sure, there should be a few stadium in other parts of Japan ready to accommodate games, be it behind closed doors?

And why can't they postpone the games by one or two days?

Any of you South Africans know of any countrymen who bought tickets for QF2 thinking you'd win the group and want to swap for QF4 with an Irish man who thought we'd win our group? :roll:

I can write filofaxes and post haka and a lot of history kak.

All that matter is my prediction for WC 2019.

The two teams that play on 21 September 2019 in pool B will meet in the final again. The loser on the 21st will win the WC.

Here. First.

One match away.

not going to happen, game over. Cricket and rugby rooted from England, look like they are going to be WC champs in both sports.
