    Edit: O my! Could we have semi-finals more perfect? Pitting the Gauls against their Welsh brothers in one match, and the Antipodean neighbours on the other!! its almost as if it were orchestrated! A beautiful line-up if any, to make the spectator's blood boil with anticipation!! Im practicing the haka and the Marseillaise for this one, fellas ;)

    15/10

    Wales - France


    16/10

    Australia - New Zealand



    Old post:

    This is gonna be fun! Most of my favourites have entered the quarter finals... And the matches are great! Pitting Welsh against Celts.. the age-old arch-rivals, the French vs English... and all the Antipodeans amongst themselves

    What are your faves? I always support Ireland, but I'm big on the All Blacks taking it this year... Living in South America I have a soft spot for Argentina too.. and I just love the French, but it seems french politics is gonna get in their way again this year... c'est tres Francais!

    BTW sorry to all my Canadian friends on here... I would have been happy for you too had Canada gone through ;)



    The upcoming Quarter Finals:



    8/10:

    Ireland - Wales

    England - France

    9/10

    South Africa - Australia

    New Zealand - Argentina

    Boks v Wallabies is going to be a brutal match! I'm giving the edge to South Africa in that one.

    For the others - I'm going for Ireland to come out over Wales and just for how it would set up the semi - I'm thinking England over France.

    I think Argentina has played well and will give NZ a run for the money, but the scales do tip to NZ in that match.

    On to more 2AM lineups next week-end...icon_wink.gif

    Ireland and All Blacks are my teams! and I always root for the U.S. even tho we don't have as dominate a team as other countries.

    I hope the New Zealand team goes all the way, only so I can watch Sonny Bill Williams day after day. Damn that's one hot man.

    Shame about Ireland tonight :-( But they did handly very poorly in the last quarter. Couldn't break that defense line at all and Wales just kept kicking the ball all the way back up the field. So sad.

    Yeah, I know, was rooting for them too! (and the ABs of course. :-) )

    BUT..... they just lacked driving power through the Welsh defense and there were a few too many fumbles there in the last quarter. That and the blind corner. :-(

    Boks and AUS tomorrow is gonna be exciting. And unless it's a game-changing upset, ABs should sail through. icon_cool.gif

    The Ireland v Wales was the best match of the Cup - but with the wrong outcome icon_sad.gif

    Watched it at the local with 3 Welsh supporters and about 2 dozen Irishmen - the atmosphere was brilliant and the pints were going down REAL easy.

    Our friend kept sending pics/texts from the match in NZ very jealous he and his partner are there for the whole Cup.

    Boks and Wallabies tonight...that is going to be the match to watch!

    Phew! We cleared with a nice margin in the end, but that was a mess - what in the world were the ABs doing until the last 15 mins? If we continue playing like this, World Cup is very much on the line. The commentators are trying to make it sound better than it is, but seriously, we were crap for most of the game! If it wasn't for the penalties from Weepu, it was just a game of holding the ball.

    you also have to give Argentina some credit for defending well, at least they put up a good fight in the first half.
