A starters chance

spot on. Like 7 others.
NZ SA AUS ARG
ENG FRA IRE WALWales and Argentina probably least likely to get up 3 weeks in a row ... but you just need some luck (like a red card) on your 'off' day to get through.
Betfair odds below. I think SA are underpriced given their game plan lends itself to big games where the ref swallows their whistle.

Gee you'd have to say everyone on that table could kill our chances in a knockout game. But are we now even more likely to lose at home than overseas?

Despite all the gloom, we should have won or tied that game at the weekend. Cody gets 1 (2?) throws on the 5 m line that we butcher. Be slightly more clinical and that game is ours, get a driving maul moving and boomfa

FIFY.
Still ( somehow ) ranked ahead of the Leek eaters.

Certainty won't be favourites. With a better coach, we'd be dark horses. With Foster I think QFs at best.
Foster will try to feather credentials in his bid to be the worst ever AB coach by leading us to a group stage exit

Shit no. Consecutive losses to Aus and SA donâ€™t compare with what has transpired lately.

Yeah I guess 2 from 6 with losses to Boks, Ireland, Ireland and Argentina is better than 0 from 5 against Boks and Australia.
