I will be watching on universal sports' website unless they air some of the matches on live tv here. I made my picks the way I saw them in the pool vbookie threads here:

But to me pools A (NZ and France), C (Australia and Ireland), and D (S. Africa and Wales) seem like two horse races with the battles for 3rd place being the most interesting thing about those 3 pools. Of course you can't say that for pool B with England, Scotland and Argentina all capable of making the quarterfinals. That will definitely be the most exciting pool to watch play out. How is anyone going to stop New Zealand after they advance to the quarterfinals on their home turf? I thnk they beat Scotland, S. Africa and Australia to win it all.

well i could very easily see france beating NZ again in the pools to get them KO'd early in a bad QF match again, but australia have go this

NBC are nationally televising 3 matches of the world cup in free HD. Starting with this one Sunday at 2pm (won't lie to you, likely to get ugly for the US but I'm watchin anyway)

The other two matches they will air are New Zealand vs Canada (an equal blowout) and the best of all the Final. If you are lucky enough to live in Canada, you can see those NBC matches plus a far greater selection on TSN.

Anyway, the whole tourney kicks off in 6 hours if anybody wants to watch Kiwi's vs Tongans.

Wathching France vs Japan now. Japan have been doing far FAR better than anyone would of thought. The last penalty and try from France has kinda stopped their hopes for a win, but Japan have done themselves proud today. They played really really well.

Did you see how well Romania did against Scotland? Probably scared the bookies how level they were with only 10 minutes to go. This one's good too but the next one is what I'm stayin up for.

New Zealand vs Australia

Wales vs France

Aus vs Wales final! Not predicting that game until I see the semi final form of both teams.

Agreed, cooper to 12 and barnes to 10 will seal us a win, but if slade is 10 for the ABs we also win, wales will run over france as I belive france are no south africa who wales should have beat

That and they struggled with Japan and lost to Tonga, and England started coming back strong at the end of the game against them. France were a team to fear 6 months ago....what happened?

Not that they can't beat us, if they find form again it'll be a very tough match.

ABs looked... well...I dunno, not like the ABs at all. They're really missing Carter...

I've yet to watch Aus vs Boks, but if Aus are even on 75% form I think they'll quite handily take New Zealand judging on how they were playing today. Like you said on twitter, hope Aus vs Wales final because we sent home the team that beat you in the pool stages, and you did the same for us.

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 08:53 AM.
