France no chance of an upset then?
Not a chance in hell. They've looked aweful in every single game. They got beaten by Tonga, beat a wilting England team and barely got by a 14 man Wales team and looked aweful in doing so. No Welsh bias here either in that statement, we lost, for a few reasons. Warburton getting sent off (whether justified or not, that's a whole other debate) wasn't the whole story, for some reason Hook, Jones and Halfpenny all missed their kicks when normally at least 2-3 would of gone over. Maybe it was the pressure, the rain or what, I don't know, but the missed kicks are on Wales. I do however, have no doubt we'd of got 1-2 more tries minimum
had Warburton been there, we'd of challenged more in the scrum and lineout, had more possession and with ball in hand we were far more aggressive and dangerous which is hard to swallow. But hey ho, that's how the game goes. Always controversy in the World Cup.
France certainly have the potential to play fantastic, but they haven't shown even 25% of that in the World Cup, and even on full form will struggle to best NZ right now.
New Zealand however, have looked practically unstoppable in every single match.
If NZ lose this World Cup and France get it... I just don't even...
we can't catch a break Kry, oh well all blacks keep the trophy in the south. Now piss off robbie deans you kiwi seed that was placed as our coach
Can't wait for the game Friday, should be a cracker.
...No Warburton for this game either, he's been suspended for 3 weeks. Wales have to have Adam Jones back to help in the scrum. Unless Faletau, Lydiate and Ryan Jones can shut Pocock down, it's going to be a nightmare for Wales at the breakdown.
