england won the WC in 2003 now look at them, they might loose it italy, this shows how much changes over time. i could show u a load of stats to show u how good england are. stats dont been a thing on the pitch.
so they were great in 97 thats 8yrs ago they had a great team. but the team at preasent isnt as good no 2 ways about it.
fiji will play a big part in the WC, but they will bottle it like always.
Well would you look at that.
France beat Ireland afterall. 26-19
Anyone see the game? Im taking a wild guess and saying that France's foward pack were fantastic.

I want to update info about Southern Hemisphere Rugby concerning the Lions tour and Super 12 competition. It seems to have disappeared.
you can delete this, I found it i must be going insane... search function didnt pick it up though.
u cant play 15's like 7's fiji, samoa and tonga have proved that.
the point im trying to make, that u keep missing is that fiji arent no1 at 7's. u cant argue with that new zealand are no1, its as simple as that. fiji have a good team yes, but they have had better ones.
Does anybody go Free-running or parkour as its also known?
Well managing a football team isn't easy.
When it comes to small sided football games I think the phrase "a chain is only as good as the weakest link" is applicable. What I mean is your least fit and least skillful player is as good as your team gets.
Im not sure how big your pitch is but if its relatively small with a semi circle area which only the keeper can enter and the goals are small you could benefit from playing a Zone defence which essentially means when your attack breaks down your whole team retreats to a position to defend within your half limiting them shooting from distance. IE dont let your striker close down their defenders who are knocking the ball about in their own half, it's a waste of energy.
This is an easy concept as it means less communication is needed as everyone knows where to go and when to go there. Also this will slow the game down to a pace I feel benefits a slightly less fit team as Man-to-Man involves following the runs of your opponents whereas a Zone means you only pick up men as they enter your vacinity.
This tactic will be less effective on large pitches with large goals and with goal areas where everyone can enter.
You can play 15s with the same intensity as 7s, thats why most guys go in to play 7s. Thats why guys like Mat Rogers and Wendell Sailor were instructed to play 7s before 15's, to gain rugby intensity.
I never said Niew Zulund werent #1 at 7s. I never said Fiji were #1 what im saying is that at 7s level they are one of the most dominant countries and most consistent.
ok i understand what your saying. but how can u dominate without winning anything?
Look at how strong The AB's have been over the years. How many RWC have they won? one. How many opportunities have they had over the years, heaps. Its referred to as cholking. Same goes with the Waratahs at S12 level. The ABS have been at the top of World Rugby for years except for maybe the times during the 60's and 70's when the Springbok were unstopable. Still they cant get their act together, came bottom of the table 3N this year and lost out in crucial games in RWC rounds the last three times, id like to see someone say that they arent a dominant force.
well dear, im talking about the SH obviously, lol.
