..............and I would like to say the BOKS but I think Del is right about it being a France - NZ final. Of these two teams, I don't care what the score is or who wins.....as long as it is NZ.

Difficult if not impossible to predict any of this on form cos it's a cup competition without the benefit of that second or third test to pull off a rescue. All or nothing, of course, means surprises and manner or margin of victory means little unless it's marred by injuries or supensions.

That said, you can't really see that many top-end surprises other than Argentina catching France on a nervy opening evening when every Frenchman expects miracles or England beating South Africa a week today. If either happen, of course, it'll just make the rest of the competion that much more interesting!

As far as the unlikely winners are concerned, it's simply wide open and I can only hope that we'll see some new nation making its mark on what ITV who have the broadcasting rights in the UK are quite rightly calling the best team game in the world!

Good luck to you all - can't wait to see how it all unfolds!

Pete

Argentina's Ignacio Corleto scored the first try of the World Cup

France (9) 12

Pens: Skrela (4)

Argentina (17) 17

Tries: Corleto

Pens: F Contepomi (4)

Argentina rocked tournament hosts France with a sensational 17-12 victory in the opening match of the 2007 Rugby World Cup in Paris.

The inspired Pumas outplayed an error-ridden and nervous-looking France and took control with a first-half try from full-back Ignacio Corleto.

Centre Felipe Contepomi chipped in with 12 points to leave the 80,000-strong Stade de France crowd stunned.

France could only muster four penalties from struggling fly-half David Skrela.

The French became only the second home side in the six-event history of the World Cup to lose their opening game. England lost to New Zealand in 1991.

My wife had trouble diferentiating between rugby union and league in the early days. she eventually decided a big part of union comprised of 1 bloke trying to push two blokes up three blokes backsides. Carn the Wallabies (but if I was investing money it would be on the all blacks defeating the Boks)
