Hmmm .... we all remember 74-0 against England during the early part of last
year.  Roughly 18 months before WC99?  How relevant could it possibly be?
Maybe we should just wait and see how the tri-nations go (this year's
tri-nations) and then the preliminary parts of WC99 before we loudly
proclaim anyone a "breeze"in the world cup.  All I am willing to predict now
is that whoever wins WC99, it will definately NOT be a breeze.

I think we might as well hand the trophy over to Japan right now.

Here we go. A RSRU first! A Welshman defending the English. That side was
second string. Australia are a good team but against the full England team
they would not come close to that result .Last summer's tours were an insult
to the SH teams and should never have taken place but I think Wales and
England proved against  SA in the Autumn that the margin is far closer than
that! Anyone who thinks otherwise will have a big shock in the RWC.

Put it this way......if Australia make the final and score more
points they will win the final.
But NZ will be the danger this year, followed by Sth Africa then
a country mile to Australia ................then..........nothing worth mentioning

Mentioning three possible teams for the winners of WC99 and not mentioning
the Blacks?  Dangerous in my opinion.  What are you guys trying to do?  Lull
us into complancency?

Ah ... finally!  The Blacks enter the circle of possible WC99 winners.  I
like, but above the Boks?  I would at this stage only be prepared to say: "
Boks, Blacks, Wallabies, England" in no praticular order.

aussie? despite their wins over the All Blacks last year, i would still rank
the AB's above them. Here are my world rankings. Results dont mean everything

1. Springboks (only because of last years wins)
2. All Blacks
3. Aussie (still think nz is better.....but i admit im biased)
4. Poms
(daylight)
5 Scotland
6. France
7. Wales

Looks good Bobs, but I would rate Wales above France.  This would however
just be my rankings at the moment and not a WC99 ranking.

We'll get a better perspetive once England have played Oz in June. They're
sending out a strong team, ratehr than 3rds.

You seem to have been listening to too many one eyed and dimwit Antipodean
and South African sports commentators (eg Channel Nine's Ian Chappel and co
on Cricket and the NZ and SA bunglers on rugby) that you're starting to
think with the wrong head.

Firstly teams that score more point always in any match somehow seem to walk
away with a win - dont ask us how this happens but it does ?

Secondly don't right off the NH teams and the especially All Black's after
they have been through a "slump" - this is when they are most dangerous and
always come back with a vengeance. They were written off before the last RWC
and unluckily lost at the final hurdle after showing some brilliant new play
that has set the standard for the last three years. I think we're in for
some surprises from them ! Also last year's five losses could have easily
been five victories as the games could have all gone either way and I feel
sorry for Taine Randell and John Hart as the public there has seemed to not
see it this way so it is not as bad as it seems.

This RWC has a lot of contenders and I feel will be decided by those teams
who emerge with confidence at the end of the Group pools. I feel that there
are so many contenders that it is pointless being arrogant about your team
purely based on National pride as you will also possibly end up making a
fool out of yourself as did the English at the hands of Wales at Wembley
this year and NZ in the last RWC final when both thought they already had
the trophy in the cabinet and pitching up to the match was all that was
required.

It will be exciting with so many teams that could take the trophy. Its gonna
be the best one yet.
