    I watched the England game, for me it was ok....

    Im NOT really a fan but I do like Union over league (even though I live in St Helens!!!!)

    I will watch other games as and when I have time.

    Nice to see another Liverpool fan

    So the Boks are currently playing Samoa and they lead 17-6 at half time.

    But there is a bigger game being played tonight, England vs Wales. That will be a humdinger of note!

    England v Wales this ones to difficult to call so the best I can do is leave you with a Welsh rugby joke enjoy.


    Warren Gatland and Stuart Lancaster are both killed when a lightning bolt hits the Millennium Stadium.

    In heaven, they are greeted by God and Lancaster is taken to his new home, a lovely English country cottage with statues of English rugby greats and angels singing Jerusalem and Swing Low, Sweet Chariot.

    He was delighted until he suddenly heard some even more beautiful singing coming from the top of the hill. He listened closer and could hear Bread of Heaven and Hen Wlad fy Nhadau.

    He looked up to see a great palace with statues of Barry John and Gareth Edwards and a party in the garden had Brains SA flowing freely as the crowd watched Scott Gibbs scoring his try against England in 1999. Lancaster went to the Lord and said: “I don’t want to appear ungrateful - but why does Warren get the huge mansion?”

    God said: “You’ve got it all wrong! That’s not Warren’s place - it’s mine.”

    A close game but England played poorly.

    If they bring there "A" game against the Aussies and win, then we could be looking at points difference to see who goes through to the quarters.

    Jamie must be over the moon with that result though.

    Great to see Wales beat England. The All Blacks have had a relatively easy run into this world cup which is not necessarily a good thing. Would be nothing better to see than an All Black - Welsh final in my opinion. Going by pool results, there is every chance that may happen.

    If the Boks beat Scotland, they'll finish top of the log. If the Aussies beat Wales & England, then Wales will finish runners-up in the group and then meet the Boks in the quarter-finals.

    I think Wales will win the group and play the runners up from the South African group which I have a funny feeling it will be Scotland.
