Hmm didn't know that, have the teams been posted yet? Could explain Ireland being the clear faves. Although I didn't think Ireland had a full team either.
yeah martin johnson has been worried about all the injuries hes got right now trying to rush back for the rwc, i think wales and scotland and ireland have great chances to be semi finalists this year and england will at least make the quarters. itll be a good european world cup imo, but inevitably a NZ-AUS final, and i think SA will have a bad WC and probably get knocked out in the quarters and may lose to wales in the pool stages
