It will be decided if Scotland v Japan will go ahead on Sunday morning.

Welsh team for Uruguay announced - we might have forwards playing in the backs at the end smiling smiley.

There's almost perfect symmetry with the Japan v Scotland forecasts, a nation divided, sounds familiar...

Down to the q/finals now, next week-end. The WP (Win Points) increases to 1.5 per match. If a game goes to extra time the final score after it, is what will count.

No more benefitting from 'default picks' allowed.

It's all kicking off for the semi's this week and looking tasty. Can't wait. smiling smiley

"All four nations competing in the Rugby World Cup semi finals held press conferences this morning as they prepare for this weekend's games.

England coach Eddie Jones used his media event to accuse someone of filming his team's training sessions from a nearby apartment block. He also accused some New Zealand journalists of being "fans with keyboards"."

I'm confidently predicting a NZ-SA final (which is the best guarantee of an all-UK final you can get).

Great win for England and makes you wonder what SA might do to try and beat them.

3 WP's per match and the usual.

Or you could go for two draws. It worked before I seem to remember!

Final two fixtures, starting tomorrow.

Friday 9.00 am

New Zealand v Wales

Saturday 9.00 am

England v South Africa

The bronze match is only worth 2 not 3, as I stated previously. The Final is worth 3 points.

I didn't think draws counted in the knock-out stages, so the only other strategy I could think of was to hopefully pick the highest or lowest prediction to the result to give myself a chance of getting the medal and bonus points...

It is actually ok but a highly unlikely scenario. You did almost as well as you possibly could have this morning though..

Just trying to keep you honest Red. Now do I go for an unpopular (an unlikely let's face it) SA win to try and pip you for the silver medal?

Have I got you thinking tactically now...? Have I...?
