    Any interest or predictions? Host nation get off to a win in a group that also includes Ireland and Scotland with only two to go through. NZ vs South Africa tonight which could be the final later in the tournament. England favoured by many and Wales recent world number 1s may have peaked too soon. Australia always there or there abouts. Hard tournament to pick.

    Not overly fussed about it, its finished by lunchtime over here which doesn't help, is it even on the telly? only seen Englands match sofar.

    Would like to see Japan go far, really surprised a few teams 4 years ago, and with the home advantage, could cause an upset.

    Absolutely gripped. Though longer term I’m hoping for Watson full back and Daly/Nowell on the wing...

    Ed, its a bit of a snore fest so far. Once we get to the quarters it should start to get interesting. Here in NZ the rights to screen were one by the local telco provider and so you can only view it by having the latest smart tv or casting it from another device. This means fibre broadband at least so large parts of rural NZ which is the rugby heartland cant even watch it unless their local has bought a commercial package.

    England deservedly beat the AB's, surely they can go on and win it.

    A great weekend of sport so far. Just need Villa to pull off a miracle.
