About pool B, it will be even more interesting for we italians the next month's Nations Cup, with Emerging Italy and four possible Italy's opponents in RWC: Namibia, Uruguay, Spain and Russia. A probative exam to test our chances against the two weakest teams of the pool. Emerging Italy will match just Namibia and Uruguay (and Argentina XV), anyway. Spain and Russia are in the same pool of the Emerging so are not going to play with them

Interesting indeed especially considering Namibia won in 2016 vs Emerging Italy.

Don't be so arrogant. You won by 1 point vs Namibia in 2015 :) They weren't lucky enough to have Burger on the pitch for the duration of the match.

You want to return on this? Did you watch the match?

Also i can remember that Canada was winning the match until last minute. I think Namibia wasnt as lucky as Romania. )

Of course I watch it, I have rarely seen such a dominance and lack of ideas in the same match.

I never claimed Canada was weakest team of the tournament so I don't understand from where this comparison.

Yes. Georgia dominated, won and qualified for next tournament. Now calm down.

I'll say this about the draw, I think this world cup is really going to be the determining factor with regards to expansion in the coming years. The ideal scenario is for the T2's to knock off at least 3 of the T1's in the pools stage. Japan are obviously going to target the QF's, they may even be bold enough to target finishing top of Pool A. Tonga and Romania are in with a chance of toppling Scotland if they aren't performing well. Samoa and USA I think have to target one of France or Argentina. I don't know how much pro MLR will help the USA given it's only going to be 2 years old. England I think are going to be a step too far at this stage. Fiji will obviously see Wales as winnable, Georgia have to also aim for Wales too IMO even if they have to play them with only 4 days rest. Really only Namibia/Kenya/Zimbabwe and the Repechage winner will be genuinely making up the numbers. These I feel are the key games for T2's in 2019 assuming qualifying goes as expected:

Japan v Ireland
Japan v Scotland
Tonga v Scotland
Romania v Scotland
USA v Argentina/France
Samoa v Argentina/France
Fiji v Wales
Georgia v Wales

We'll know more by the end of the year where these teams stand but IMO these are the games the T2's have to target.

So both Oaks and Lelos must prepare and show their real ability on the field.

Namibia and Uruguay(repechage) are weakest teams BECAUSE they have NEVER won ANY RWC match. Thats why.
Uruguay has beaten Georgia in 2003 though.

You are still restless about a game from 2015. You repeating same points that you have before. Take a deep breath and move on.

Probably I mentioned it a second time after very long period of time so calling it "restless" is simply silly. Yet, you didn't explained when I looked nervous.

I am not sure that any of the above mentioned teams will appear in pool "B" thru repechage. I expect there absolutely different team, and not from Asia, Europe or Americas.

I originally replied to you by talking about rugby. Not sure why you keep talking about you and your feelings. What does it have to do with rugby? Like I said move on.

You seem to have troubles understanding what are you reading. You said me to calm down while I was talking about rugby. I mentioned kindly to point me where I was nervous and since than you keep making remarks about how I feel while repeating things I said. Your behavior suggest echolalia, I kindly suggest to see a neurologist.

You have talked about stalking, alarms, your feelings, yourself, and now you are playing doctor on a rugby forum. You really need to take your own advice about neurologist.

Sorry, but this is not the time for the yearly Antim-brawl. Let's start this in February 2018. :D
How to grow rugby worldwide?
Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

You are wrong, Uruguay at least won 1 match in '99 against Spain. And saying that they are the weakest because they haven´t won any match in a RWC... It is not fair.

I agree , Uruguay hasn't been given enough credit they are a fairly good side. Also Uruguay have defeated Namibia in a test match back in Montevideo, 22 September 2000 when Namibia toured South America.
