    Common, where are the Wallabbies, Kiwi's, English, Wales, French, Irish, Argentine's and Springbok supporters???:happywave:

    Jerome,
    (btw - USA played good this RWC - their defence was much better than previous RWC - i was impressed with them)

    I was thinking...:think:rather than having everyone predict his score on this thread, and I am sure there are hundreds, if not thousands -of members interested and competitive with the final stages of this RWC (in NZealand)
    Why don't you fix us a litle grid on "life outside hunting" on AH with the teams in their curent positions and let the members have a go at score predictions / wins?:praying:
    It is going to get really-really hot from this weekend onwards with the below 8 teams in the quarter finals.:flame:

    Quarter final (QF) play-offs for this weekend as follows:
    QF 1.....Sat 8 Oct - Ireland vs Wales
    QF 2.....Sat 8 Oct - England vs France
    QF 3.....Sun 9 Oct - Springboks (RSA) vs Wallabies (AUS)
    QF 4.....Sun 9 Oct - Kiwi's (NZ) vs Argentina

    Weekend after that semi finals
    QF 1 winner vs QF 2 winner.....Sat 15 Oct
    QF 3 winner vs QF 4 winner.....Sun 16 Oct

    Weekend after that - :second:Final:first:

    Anyone seconding my proposal???:wink:

    Although I very much like rugby, I don't get many opportunities to watch it and so cannot give an informed opinion as to the chances of the teams. But I am going to with Ireland vs. New Zealand in the finals, with the All Blacks winning it all!!

    Would love it to be a SA vs NZ final but it cant happen should be a Epic semifinal between the two teams though, I predict a England vs NZ final, I do hope Ireland make it though.

    Would like to see the Springbok's win, but, have heard, not seen, New Zealand has a strong team. Let's go Bok's.

    When the next Boks game is played in the RWC find a pub with some South Africans watching and you'll see lively.

    Yeah Docman, like i said - my predictions was from my head.
    If i went with my heart i would have loved it to be England vs Ireland and Bokke vs Kiwi's in the Semis, and Bokke vs Ireland final....but that is dreaming i guess.

    Can we come out yet....?:small:

    I tell ya'all...i am in mourning since yesterday.:pout:
    I am done predicting rugby scores - i have more 'hits' with hunting.

    We (bokke) controlled every facet of the game for the entire game, i am still in shock that we did not score at least 2 tries which were 'givens'. I will not use the referee as an excuse - Wallabies made use of every single opportunity and deserve to win, but oh brother :redhot:- there were some refereeing in that game which I saw last when i played rugby in primary school - no really. :headscratch:

    Well done to the Wallabies! :thumb:
    Good luck with the game Saturday vs Kiwi's.:nailbiter:
