A winner other than New Zealand would be great. We don't want kiwi dominance doing to the world cup what it's done to super rugby and the rugby championship.

I am surprised Wales is so unpopular. What did Wales do out of interest? Is it a nation of pikeys? What's the story?

They'd be the worst RWC winners since...well...2007. Lost in the pools and faced Japan in the QF. At least Eng, NZ, and Wales would go through unbeaten and have to grind it out against traditional heavyweights.
I've got to agree with this.

I see some non kiwis are tipping the ABs to win the whole thing. Ballsy call, I need some of that insight, who do you guys think might win in a soccer match between Germany and San Marino?


Thinking about who might win, I get the 'not this French outfit' comments but I can't help feel that it would be typically French for the worst French team of the last 40 years to win the whole damn thing.... and then go out in the group stage in 4 years with the best team in a generation and favourites tag in a home WC.

South Africa
France
Wales
Japan

England


NZ

The same team winning three times in a row really isn't a good look for world rugby, especially if it is also the only country where rugby is already the number 1 sport. Helping the kiwis win in 2011 doesn't look like such a good idea now.

Next time in France though, I have the feeling it will finally happen.
Too much talent coming from young ages now and coupled with the outstanding current talents like penaud and Dupont, they will take some beating in 2023, barring some unfortunate injuries of course.

Also coming back to the "they deserve it", you can argue we got stolen at least 1 RWC win, especially in 1995 and 2011 (basing on the final only cause otherwise, no complain about NZ win).
Sorry mate, Joubert wasn't allowed to take that 65th minute penalty kick for you.

Wales, mostly to see a new RWC winner.
But as a rugby fan, quite clearly NZ.
I never cease to be amazed by the way they play.

Nope. It is down to about 6- 10 posters on here. In the real world and pre the existence of PR the vast majority would be cheering for Wales.

If it isn't to be NZ, then Wales.

It would blow Welsh minds - not to mention blowing up the bored - if Wales was to break a 66-year hoodoo in a WC final v NZ. That would almost be worth an AB defeat to witness. :lol:

The fact you can't see you are the worst is what makes you the worst. Your worst trolls are treated as normals on the Welsh thread while everybody else's trolls are pilloried on theirs. You tolerate abhorrent behaviour and have anointed an arch troll henry as your leader. When I am a mod I will start with the Welsh and rest after that

The Welsh have some really top trolls. I'd rank them as follows

C69 ( number 1 troll on the bored)
Plato
Henry ( His Refry persona was brilliant)

They came to me not the other way around. I initially said no as I am involved in a number of important charities but then they offered me, well I will keep that to myself but needless to say I will be fair but strive for a bored defined by justice and cross cultural multi specificity
I for 1 welcome you as a mod and look forward to a different type of PR

Does any of that work? Because it seems like the usual suspects saying the usual stuff. Winnie says something, Derwyn responds which ropes in Mullett, then korbyn_dallas arrives and does his usual fart in a lift routine before disappearing into the night and it is all down hill from there. I'm not sure me complaining to an anonymous thirty something is really going to do anything, it hasn't so far.
