I drew Italy in the sweep at work - Well that's 2 quid wasted!!
I've never known such an open tournament with no real home advantage for any of the big boys and nobody particularly on fire - Japan will be boosted by home advantage from being mediocre to probably quite good.
New Zealand, Australia, Wales, England, South Africa, France and Ireland all stand a great chance of winning.
Argentina, Italy, Scotland, Fiji and Tonga will all be fighting to make it past the pool stages.
Russia, Namibia, Uruguay and Georgia will all be happy with points on the board.
Mostly earlyish kick offs - Anyone recommend a suitable breakfast ale? Or perhaps a marmalade martini!!
