Thread: Rugby World Cup 2019

  1. #1

    Default Rugby World Cup 2019

    Starts in Tokyo today, 20th September.

    I've been following the build-up closely, particularly Eddie Jones's England squad. I had residents' tickets and saw both of England's warm-up matches at Twickenham against Wales and against Ireland. England won convincingly in both, despite Wales being in-form and who took the World Number One ranking shortly after, and Ireland, who occupy the current world #1 ranking, and were beaten by a record margin.

    Tables below:



    Confident England can deliver this time, even though there is youth and experimentation to some degree in Jones's team, and put to bed some of their demons from 2015, particularly against their nemesis then and now; Wales.

And now we have to use it.

    And that's Why I'm Voting Leave.

    France 23 - 21 Argentina

    Audacious drop goal from the French with 8 minutes to go gave them the lead, then Argentina miss a long-range penalty in the dying seconds.

    Wonderfully tense match.
