• Japan make the quarter finals
• At least 3 T1 nations failing to make the quarter finals (we know one will happen in Pool C at least)
• At least one T1 nation having to qualify for 2023
• At least 3 genuine upsets. The games I think this could happen in are JAP v IRE, USA v ENG, ITA v RSA, GEO v WAL, FIJ v AUS, TON v FRA, USA v ARG
• Average margin of victory to reduce again
• Crowd average of around 42,000 and 85% of all tickets sold.
• Anyone other than New Zealand winning


1. Correct
2. 2 out of 3
3. Incorrect
4. We got 2 genuine upsets, one I predicted, and the other no-one saw coming.
5. Correct
6. My maths was incorrect on this from the start.
7. Correct.

Who are you calling T1? Scotland Italy and Argentina all missed the QFs. So by my reckoning you did even better than you thought!

You also missed Japan beating Scotland. Or maybe you don't count that as a genuine upset. If you are counting Uruguay beating Fiji that makes 3 for you.
