Predictions for Saturdays Games and an Apology

Predictions for Saturdays Games and an Apology

Post by Tim Oneil » Wed, 25 Aug 1999 04:00:00


First for the apology.  Upon further review, and much stick from my wife
(a neutral Kiwi) and my Welsh friends, I have decided to apolgize for
calling some of you Welsh supporters 'arrogant'.  I must have forgot
what week it was, I was planning on using the word 'arrogant' to
describe the English supports, after we humble them this Saturday:-).
That done, I might finally get some peace from my friends and a meal
from my wife.  On to the predictions for this coming Saturday.  In no
particular order:  Ireland 26 Argentina 18 (my ancestors would curse me
if I went against Ireland); NZ 27 Australia 21 (my Kiwi wife would never
feed me again if I dared to go against NZ); Canada 31 England 23 (I just
had to pick Canada and besides the English will have been lulled into a
false sense of confidence after that US game); Wales 42 France 10 (I
have to pick Wales by a large margin to make it up to my Welsh friends,
luckily I have no French friends); Scotland 47 Romania 9 (Its pretty
obvious I have no Romanian friends and besides my Grandmother was born
in the Firth of Forth); Uruguay 20 Spain 13 (I will never pick a Spanish
team to win anything after they stole our fish off the Atlantic coast a
few years back, not that I would mind sharing a fish with a Spaniard,
but its the principle of the thing, they didn't say 'please'); Fiji 21
Italy 21 (I've never had a Fijian nor an Italian steal my fish, so I
thought it appropriate to predict a tie, and I figured by not playing
favorites they would be less likely to try to pull the cod from under my
eyes). So there you have it, my predictions for the upcoming rugby
matches.  No doubt the logic behind my predictions has astounded you all
(its certainly astounded me).  Make sure to look for me when I make my
RWC predictions (did I tell you about my Namibian Grandfather and my
best friend from Japan, oh, and my pet fish from Tonga).  So long, and
thanks for letting me keep the fish!

I like this, someone admitting his predictions are not to do with
rugby but more to do with friendship. Very out of the ordinary too, as
most predictions are meant to wind others up.

I hope your strategy is as effective for you as theirs is for the
other type of predictor, Tim!

All the best

John Williams.
