With no Cowboys game this weekend and as several BTBers were interested in last week’s AFL final thought I might see if anyone would like to pick the winners for this weekend’s Rugby World Cup Quarter-finals.
England vs. France
Ireland vs. Wales
South Africa vs. Australia
Argentina vs. New Zealand
I have England over France (no surprise there) in a very close game
Ireland will deal with Wales pretty easily
Australia ought to prevail over South Africa in what looks like a great game
And although it is great to see the inclusion of one of the non-traditional powers of the game at this stage a win for the Pumas on All Black soil would represent one of the greatest upsets ever , so I’ll stick with New Zealand.
Going forward to next week’s Semi-finals
Ireland over England (yes I am picking against my boys)
New Zealand over Australia, with the All Blacks beating the Irish in the final.
