RWC: 8 DAYS TO GO ... All Blacks, Boks and the French emerging as only contenders

8 DAYS TO GO ... do you know where you'll be for the opening game?

The pre-comp game playing is both dying down (it's getting serious folks) and building up (it was already serious folks). In the meantime, read about French women loving rugby, maybe it's the hair and how the Wallabies have lost already

Team news: England have Martin Corry recovering from injury and are concentrating totally on the Boks and Woodward backs his old team/sport. Wales are still, keeping it together ... Canada's their first game and it will all be revealed then (midnight, Monday 10th Sep).

To keep ya hand in with the other teams read all about: Namibia, Romania, Georgia We have two more telling us who'll win the comp: James Dalton ("New Zealand versus South Africa / South Africa to win 24 - 15"), Rod Kafer ("France versus South Africa or Australia. / Score: "It will be pretty close, in the 20s for both teams"."). Of course there's betting galore

And so - the only 3 teams in it, who will the All Blacks meet in the Final. France have a bit of a NZ hoodoo while the Boks seem to be doing all the right things ... hmmm. Mind you the Boks have Samoa eyeing them for a tough game

Add finally, the All Blacks said tara to NZ and promise blood and 100% with all the talking on the field. Key is Mr D Carter and he's saying all the right things. Oh, and whilst I'd like to see Jonah involved I'm relieved that it's not on the field.
