Why cant ya?? I am pretty sure most the squads are building up there side for the WC now, and don't think any of the top countries squads will differ too much from what they are now.

I would love to see Fiji or Samoa cause a few upsets over the Nrthn Hemisphere sides and gain a place in the 1/4 finals, was stoked when the Fijians made it thru after the upset over Wales. Had huge hopes befor the cup on Samoa to upset the Poms, was gutted when this didnt happen.

But no team in the world is going to want to face an All Blacks side in their own backyard at the next World Cup with all their best players having returned home to play a part. Denying New Zealand again at the World Cup might be about to get even harder still.

Well to do that they would have to beat England in pool play which is definitely a possibility but then they would meat the French in the 1/4 Final. If they were to lose to Eng they got no chance of making the semi, because they would meet the mighty ABs in the 1/4
