Please be Wales and Italy
Then you got us, Argentina, Wales, Ireland who can beat anyone on their day.
Awesome state for World Rugby, too bad Aussie rugby isn't this strong.
Yep win the group and play Arg or Jap in the qtrs. Most teams that have won a word cup have had favorable draws in the qtrs. SA in 07 and 19 and Aus in 99 all had dream runs in the qtrs and semis. Even in 15 we had as simple a run as possible to the finalYea 9/10 we beat Wales, not overly worried about them. More worried about Fiji belting the shit out of us
Just about the best possible pool we could have got
Would disagree. Wales and Ireland have both shown they're in decline with no obvious young guys to replace their aging teams.
Ireland struggled this year without Sexton and/or Stander.
Wales have been v poor (losing to Scotland at home) again their aging stars have no obvious replacements.
However 2.5 years for that to all change.
