From: Hobart, Tasmania, Australia
The smart money is on the All Blacks but they haven't performed well in recent World Cups (well...they were poisoned the day before the final at a function catered by a South African company in 1995 but that's about South Africa's usual speed. Eye-gouging, raking, professional-fouling pack of cheats they are and they always have been).
It will be interesting to see how the likes of Wales, Ireland, England, France and Argentina go. Surely Australia can't win another World Cup? Surely...
Go Wallabies! Hopefully we bash up Japan tonight. "That's for the Thai-Burma railway!", I bellowed at the telly when we belted them 3-1 in the Football World Cup. "And Changi. And the Battle of Savo Island..."
Edit: (Whoops. This bit was supposed to go at the end of a post in the music thread. Oh well. ) Speaking of enjoying the footy, Corey Enright getting his shorts ripped completely off and running around in his undies last week was great. I love a good sporting "dacking" and this was a beauty...
The same thing happened to my Dad playing Rugby League in the late 50s and the damage to the shorts and jockstrap was such that his team-mates had to form a circle around him which then shuffled off the field like a Roman military manoeuvre to protect the modesty of any watching ladies.
