Since September 2010 I’ve been telling you that I think the final will be between the Wallabies and All Blacks.
Yes, I’ve raised issues with the way the Wallabies played in 2010 and so far in 2011 but my opinion hasn’t changed.
What do you think? Would you like to check your opinion by seeing what affect pool game results have on the finals and who might get through? To help you we’ve developed an online tool that gives you the opportunity to select winners of each of the pool games and then see which team ends up playing which in the finals.
Here’s how to use it:
work through each of the pool games and select which team will win or if there will be a draw;
then assign bonus points for each team for each game — 1 each for 4 tries or more and 1 for the losing team if their score is 7 points or less than the winner (these bonus points are important as they could be crucial for deciding who finishes where in the pool);
at the end of each pool you’ll see who ends up in positions 1 and 2 and therefore who plays whom in the quarter-finals;
then decide who you think will win the quarter-finals and semi-finals.
Let us know who you think will make the final.
