Postby dwpeate » Fri, 15 Jun 2018, 13:13

Just for fun!

If this FIFA world cup was replaced with the national rugby union teams of each country, who is your winner?

For me the teams progressing from pools are:
A:
Uruguay
Russia

B:
Spain
Portugal

C:
Australia
France

D:
Argentina
Croatia

E:
Brazil
Switzerland

F:
Germany
South Korea

G:
England
Belgium

H:
Japan
Colombia

R16

Uruguay v Portugal
Australia v Croatia (god knows what the score would be)
Brazil v South Korea
England v Colombia (again...)
Russia v Spain
Argentina v France
Germany v Switzerland
Japan v Belgium

QF
Uruguay v Australia
Brazil v England
Spain v Argentina
Germany v Japan

SF
Australia v England
Argentina v Japan

BF
England v Japan

Final
Australia v Argentina

That being said, what is Australia's best FIFA world cup finish?

England would beat Australia, they have currently won 5 times in a row against them and knocked them out of multiple World Cups.

Nice idea.
Germany in the quarter finals, we might not even make it this far in soccer :lol:
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.
