    I'm so looking forward to this. We can go a long way and I'd be disappointed if we didn't.

    All Blacks have looked average in the 'tri nations' so far.

    I'm not sure they're the force they were, in as much as they're beatable by a few teams.... not us yet though! On their day they're still amazing and obviously still favourites.

    I don't follow the odds but Wales must surely be as good a bet as anyone for second favourites.

    Wales with 14 straight wins are one of the favorites and rightly so. NZ are the team to beat like always with England a big threat but Wales can give a good account of themselves against either of them on the day....Looking forward to watching all the games i can manage.....

    Falatau ruled out with a broken collarbone a few days ago.

    The guy has struggled with impact injuries for some time. Probably the one position we have no depth. Morriarty sees himself as a 6 and navidi is a utility player. Faletau is our one genuine 8.
    Gutted for him, and a worry of us.
    Can't wait to get started.

    Now this world cup I am looking forward to.

    Just hoped Wales haven't peaked to early.

    Shame it's on Sky but I should be able to get a feed.

    Those are fairly even stats considering when I was growing up we always got hammered by England!

    Extract from The Telegraph in 2011:

    ‘It was in 1991, also in the first match of the championship and with a World Cup similarly looming, that England ended the most humiliating and frustrating run in their rugby history, finally winning in Wales for the first time in 28 years......’

    Warm up games on sky, but the real stuff is on ITV. Not as good as if covered by the beeb, but comentators are getting better.
    Adverts are a pain.
    Can't get used to listening to the anthems then disappearing for a break.
