It’s the final round of pool matches this weekend, and there are a few potential banana skins for teams that ought to qualify.
That said, I’m not predicting any upsets, and I think England, Wales and Ireland will all come through their respective challenges. I don’t think I’m underestimating Scotland, who always find an extra gear to play England (doesn’t everyone?), but this England side should have enough in the armoury.
Before the tournament, I would have picked Fiji to beat Wales, but the Welsh have come through two brutal encounters exceptionally well, and Fiji disappointed in their match with Samoa.
Here are my picks for the weekend – what do you think?
Australia v Russia: Australia by 73
France v Tonga: France by 29
England v Scotland: England by 13
Argentina v Georgia: Argentina by 23
New Zealand v Canada: New Zealand by 49
Wales v Fiji: Wales by 13
Ireland v Italy: Ireland by 18
