Have a funny feeling the Springboks might surprise the All Blacks (and everyone) with an upset win.

Wouldnt be that much of a surprise tbh. Boks drew with the AB in welly a couple of months ago and are peaking up nicely. They're my co favs (alongside AB) followed by England then Ireland who didnt impress me much in Aug - poms did (pre rwc friendlies are different though). Wallabies, the welsh, argies and french an outside chance for a sf spot then who knows.

Unfortunately, the forecast is for rain on Saturday afternoon, which will ruin one of the most anticipated pool games as a spectacle. Lots of high kicks to test the fullbacks. The timing of this World Cup is almost as bad as the 2020 Olympics. It should have been held out of typhoon season, from around Oct 11-Nov 23.
