    The only positive (if you can take one) is that the English and French have traditionally hated each other. Not sure it will help in this instance.

    Hopefully our lazy players don't whack ball carriers late, high or without using their arms.

    Not just one, but three French refs, the Rugby god's really either despise Australia, or England (or both of us)

    Having seen those officials, I'd say God be with you, but even he'll be forsaking this one.

    And to make matters worse, we've got Ben Skeen too.

    Haha, that combination is actually quite funny in a sadistic way. Genuinely feels like they're trying to fuck with us. I wouldn't be surprised if this was WR trying to give Cheika an aneurysm.

    Nahhhhhhhhh, I reckon Garces and Skeen will be shitting themselves not to have a repeat of the first round and will try to 'correct the record' by compensating in our direction.

    Otherwise, they'll probably need a bodyguard escort out of the ground to ensure Chieka doesn't have his own Jack Ruby moment.

    WR giving Skeen a chance to redeem himself by recommending a red for an Owen Farrell shoulder charge.

    My prediction is that if cards are handed out in numbers, the Wallabies will receive most of them. Not because of the officials, but because of dumb play that the Wallabies are more likely to participate in.

    The Kerevi crashball might be reffed out of the gameplan. Merdi.

    Whilst the refs are scary we could have had Jaco:

    However think we know how the refs will be as we have had all of them in pool games, and the breakdown will continue to be a mess.

    Whats the latest on Vunipola?

    That hadn't escaped me, he'll probably find something from when we played England last November "check check, ah I've got potential foul play from November last year, penalty England"

    "Jerome, have you ever been to France before? I hear it's very beautiful."
    "Skeeny, I am a Frenchman. Of course I have been to France."
    "Happy to go with your onfield decision, Jerome."

    "Check, check Jerome. It's Skeeny here."
    "OK, I will red card the number 7 for Australia."

    "Jerome, do you know the weather forecast for later tonight? I think I've forgotten my umbrella."
    "I agree. Penalty try for England."

    "Jerome, I've got some extended footage to show you of 2 girls with 1 cup."
    "OK, 2 reds and 1 yellow for Australia."

    "Jerome, I have a confession to make. I never learned how to switch the monitors on up here so I've been guessing and making it up all these years."

    "Yes, yes, Skeeny, yes I can hear you and yes I have been to France."

    Those refs/TMO. Far out. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. Oh wait, yes I do. I’ll be at this game and it’s def taken a bit of my fizz away!

    Time for another #ScrumStraightJoe-esque campaign?

    We might win the game but get players banned for the semis and final.

    This is HILARIOUS! As if our tournament could get any worse. I'm actually laughing out loud at absurdity of it.
