RUGBY WORLD CUP SEMI FINAL PREVIEW
We down to 4 teams and they are evenly matched teams. The 2 Northern hemisphere giants lock horns on Saturday. Both sides form has improved drastically as the tournie has gone on. France were shocked by the Argies but have bounced back. England were awful against the Boks but came up massive last week. Have both timed there run to perfection? France at home has to be favorites. England will use there big pack. England will look to strangle the French much like what they did to ausies. France will be stronger in the scrums then the ausies. It is close to call, I would luv to see England in the final, the atmosphere the fans provide is second to none, but I think the French will win but by very few points.
The argies have been a revelation. They play to there game plan. They kick a lot of ball away but they want to play in the opponents half. They have Contepomi who is lethal with the boot as well as Hernanadez who can drop kick from anywhere. They a complete team and cannot be underestimated. Have they reached there peak? Is the semi one game to many for them? They have injury concerns with 3 top players doubtful. If they don’t play they will be in big kak. The boks have never lost to them but that goes out of the window as it is a semi. We will find it easier to play against them then the Fijians. They play a more structured pattern and you know what to expect. The boks have no excuses and should win this one. Percy needs to me more accurate with the boot. Can’t afford to miss too many kicks at goal! The boks should win by 10!
LETS HOPE THE POWER DON’T GO OUT ON SUNDAY EVENING!
