Pool A looks the most competitive. Ireland for sure, and I'd pick Scotland. However Samoa can win and even Japan proved they can fight. Holy :censored: Japan v Samoa is gonna be such a bullyfest
NZ and SA will win Pool B
Argentina and ?England? will win Pool C
Wales and Australia will win Pool D

Although Australia beat New Zealand, NZ was sloppy with Barrett getting a red card. It's almost good NZ lost so then they'll pack more punch in the world cup

South Africa showed they are #2 and can compete with AB

Good Scottish win over France
It was smart for Wales to sit Liam Williams during to the upcoming world cup

Even though Wales is ranked #1, New Zealand is clearly the #1 team. NZ isn't so strong this year, but they're incredibly fast and I like the move to shift Beauden Barret to fullback over fly half

I'm surprised England smashed Ireland so hard. Even though Eddie Jones was promoted to coach, Ireland is supposed to be a tactically sound team. Then again, England was absent from the 2015 RWC and Ireland showed up so

France vs Argentina was 5x more exciting than any NFL game I've seen this year. I'm sad Argentina didnt win though, super close /: I pray it doesnt keep them out of the cup

im sad Ireland beat Scotland. Even though Fiji didn't win, that was a fantastic performance against a 1st tier nation.

Also Namibia did very well against Italy. Italy isn't a superior team, but Namibia is a West African nation

Good job to Namibia for keeping it an even contest against New Zealand for 35 minutes.
Pool A is going to come down to Japan v Scotland in the final game

The typhoon news is nonsense. Italy has no real chance at beating New Zealand, so nobody cares about that match. However Scotland vs Japan is huge. Cancelling that match would be outrageous
