I only watch it when Australia are playing, otherwise its just a stupid game with 45 or something people running into each other. But hey im a Melbournian, AFL is our only religion. So anyone here watch all the matches.. and if so, are you sick of bruce McAvaney yet?

I watch as many games as I can, but due to the time difference the weekend games are really the only ones I can catch

I have watched quite a few RWC matches,but some of them I have to admit are a bit boring,it will improve heaps when the semi-finals/finals start to be played .Then you will start to see the best teams playing each other,which make for much tighter games and closer scorelines.As for Bruce McAvaney I think he one of the most knowelgeable commentators going around, his knowledge of all sports is unbelievable.Go the Wallabies!!!!

The French, and in particular Michalak were terrific. They are scaring me actually - everyone seems to think its a forgeone conclusion that England will be in the final but France represent a very tough test in the Semis and one that England could easily be defeated in. France will fear nobody.

I don't think France will pose much of a threat. England are way too powerful at the moment. It will be England and New Zealand in the final and England will become the first Northern hemisphere team to win the world cup as much as I hate to admit it. Despite this I will be supporting New Zealand in the final.

Cheers - Marius

I managed to be in Townsville last Thursday night and took the opportunity at the last minute to go to the Japan v Fuji game at the Dairy Farmers Stadium. The atmosphere was fantastic with the Townsville crowd "adopting" Japan as the "home" team. Unfortunately Fiji played their best game so far and managed to win.

Hopefully I might get to go to one of the games left to play in Brisbane.

As for England winning well yeah they probably will win but Western Samoa are giving them a scare at the moment.

Samoa were terrific. England were dire. It'll hopefully give them a wake up call. They got out of gaol today.
