With just over 5 hours to go until the hotly anticipated start of the Rugby World Cup 2015 we thought we would put our heads above the scrum and give our world cup predictions.
Ok, so we are not past rugby professionals (sorry Bradley!) but we are avid fans and supporters of the odd shaped ball game. For my part, I grew up between two rugby mad brothers, had a dad who spent most of my childhood chairing my brothers' local rugby club and a mum who working in publishing at the RFU name drops regularly! Bradley has earnt his rugby stripes playing rugby in South Africa which means our house is a divided one when the two teams meet!
Our predictions, which are very much influenced by Bradley's superior knowledge of the game, are as follows:
South Africa v Australia
New Zealand v Ireland
Argentina v France
England v USA
France v England
South Africa v New Zealand
New Zealand v England
New Zealand will be triumphant (although the heart wants England of course!)
Let us know your thoughts ….
