The purpose of this thread is for everyone to make five big predictions for the next five years, up to 2020. You make five bold predictions about what think could happen and we'll discuss the probability and see what comes true when it does.

Here's my five:

1. Australia will win the Bledisloe Cup in 2016

2. Argentina will beat the All Blacks before the next World Cup

3. Argentina will win the Rugby Championship & Super Rugby

4. Georgia will beat one the Six Nations

5. The All Blacks streak at Eden Park will be broken (probably by Australia)

2. Argentina will win the next world cup.

3. Wales will win at least three 6 nations titles(if Gatland stays).

4. Japan will make the 2019 quarter finals.

5. England will go through at least one 6 nations campaign with 0 wins to their name.

- With Cheika, this is a real possibility.

2. Argentina will beat the All Blacks before the next World Cup
- Very likely, by around 2017.

3. Argentina will win the Rugby Championship & Super Rugby
- See 2.

4. Georgia will beat one the Six Nations
- If they play Scotland, England and Italy once a year, it is possible. Need exposure to higher tier teams more regularly for this to happen.

5. The All Blacks streak at Eden Park will be broken (probably by Australia)
- This one I don't see happening.

If I can add to 5 - No SA team will win Super Rugby for the next 5 years.

Why is everyone banking on Argentina being so good at super rugby? Is their team basically the whole Argentina Test team?

Yep - there is a argentina super rugby team thread down the bottom of the front forum page .

I think they are waiting on the waterboy to sign up and its the full squad.

Might as well wear the WC jerseys to save on uniform bills. Happy days. I hope they win and in 2 years time its 2 teams.

1 Argentina to win the SA super rugby conference in 2016.

2 Two Argentinian teams in Super by 2020 - Beunos Aires and Mendoza.

3 Brumbies to beat the Tahs for Aus Super conference in 2016.

4 Wallabies to clean sweep the English team in 2016. England rebuilding similar to before 2003 RWC.

5 If Wallabies win 2015 RWC, Larkham to replace Cheika as coach by 2017, otherwise Cheika to stay on until after 2019 RWC.
