The Rugby World Cup 2015 Pools drawn and IRB awards given

True that pacific teams were not always the most consistent in the past...
So given that, I guess you re right. The odds may be better in pool B than D. Truth is, I don't see Canada or the USA getting to the third place in neither right now. But let's hope!
Also true regarding the schizophrenic french. Nevertheless, in 2011, Samoa was a serious threat VS Wales and RSA even if not lucky with the results. I m already looking forward to watching Samoa-RSA in 2015! Someone should warn seismic scientist...

Sure, but still fun to discuss!
I think the best possible pool is the french's last RWC. A fight VS NZ in pool is a good preparation! And you don't see them again before the final!

I understand you're predicting/hoping, so no point really "disagreeing". Still I think Samoa's current form is pretty impressive. America having a good shot...currently a game between those two would be a pure massacre imo. Last game of Samoa saw them scoring twice against a really solid french defense. With a bit more luck, discipline, and a kicker, Samoa could have won this match. Pains me to admit it, but they were stronger than a pretty good french team this day. I hope Samoa will still improve cause if they do, they will be a solid challenger in 2015.
But for the sake of competition, I 'd be glad to see the USA improve too!

Andrew Hore cited for off the ball stiffarm on Bradley Davies

Haha, sure wales isn't in good shape. As for the incident, the amount of comments here speaks for itself.

France vs Samoa Highlights - November 2012

What a game! Looked a bit like France-England 15 years ago :-) Only now its France that keeps calm and slots penalties while the opponent scores tries but get nervous and tired. Almost had a dozen heart attacks! Such offensive power from Samoa required a huge defense from the french. Good thing for Samoa the game is not more than 80 minutes though. Maybe the french should have pushed back a bit earlier.
With a real kicker (in game kick was really good, but no drop attempt and 0/2 penalties) this samoan team would quickly climb up the rankings.

Obviously malicious, straight red. Claim for damages in court. All this punching and cheap shot thing has to stop once and for all. Especially for a player of the best team, during a simple test match against a loosing weaker opponent.
Rugby is about power, fairness and self-control.
No matter if there is an obstructive running. Why push in the back or even avoid contact (which is most of the time more efficient) when you can take a swing at the neck?
Disgusting.

Wales score bizarre try with thirteen man lineout against the All Blacks

Sad to see this once promising welsh team now stuck in...well I just don't know what.
Still, this try shows a good spirit imo. Game was over but they still throw everything at it.

Shortlist for IRPA Try of the Year 2012 announced

I like Malzieu's even if I must agree the italian defense was poor. But this also happens thanks to Picamoles (which is definitely a great great n8) he attracts every italian to him then passes. The italian have to refocus on Malzieu who s at full speed, straight ahead.
Given that, they're all 4 pretty individual tries. And THE individual try of the year is Nyanga's Vs argentina imo.
Back to Malzieu, I don't remember him doing much more than this try during last 6nations.

France vs Argentina Highlights - November 2012

Huge first half indeed. In the second half, both teams looked a bit stunned by what they had done in the first. Good to see the french can do very good without some of their elders (Rougerie, Harinordoquy, and of course Dussautoir).
That's promising!
Nyanga's try was spectacular, if I may say "Lomu' style". But my favorite is the second one, lovely kick by Fritz.
