Ok, I know it's very late in the tournament to be starting a thread like this, but better late than never! The quarter-finals were quite strange. My predictions before they start was Ireland and England would win, and I couldn't decide between the Aussies and the South Africans. It was quite obvious NZ would beat Argentina. Looking back, Wales were unlucky to lose to SA in the group stages, but Ireland did beat the Aussies and they were both looking very good in the group stages. And what can we say about France. They surprise us almost every world cup! England have been mediocre this tournament, and Johnny Wilkinson's kicking hasn't been great, so he blames it on the ball, lol. Wales will definitely beat France in the semis. And that Aussie SA game was strange. SA dominated almost everything, except turn-overs. They had something like 70% territory, and Australia had to make nearly 3 times as many tackles! Terrific game, even though it was low-scoring. It looks like a Wales - NZ final. Perhaps the All Blacks will finally win it, and on home soil too.
