Rugby Worldcup Champions
9 Oct 07
I'm waiting forward for the match between South Africa and Argentina. I think whoever wins this game will win the World Cup. France and England haven't played a very good rugby (not to mention that France should not be in the semifinal, considering they were pushed there by the referee...) so I think the title's going South this year.

The Springbooks are definately in top-form and I suspect this may be the year that they pull it off. On the other hand, England have seen the return of their star kicker and point-scorer, Johny Wilkinson and that could make the difference. England are not known for playing beautiful rugby but the "give it to the man who can kick" formula certainly works and in the World Cup, that is certainly the most important thing.

As I told a friend of mine a few days ago when he said that Argentina plays a kinda primitive rugby, if they score points, it doesn't matter how they play. Johnny Wilkinson could be in a good shape, but he may as well not be. And let me point out that Percy Montgomery had a pretty good game against Argentina too. I think it's gonna be a tight game.

Wilkinson could be the difference in the final and England have to make sure he has the space to do what he does best. South Africa are better as an All-Round team and will be very dangerous in attack. In terms of who has the psychological advantage, it should be with South Africa - they did win the last encounter by a big margin. They are also working very hard to keep themselves focused. Things are definately going to be fun on the pitch.
