It's good the smaller countries get to play competitive game with each other.
But it's hard to get excited watching Australia flog them. France, that used to be half competitive got beat by about 50 last night. How will the even smaller league countries go? It's like watching Lennox Lewis take on my grandmother.
NZ and the poms might have a bit of a lash, but I'll be amazed if Australia doesn't win. And even in England, about 95%, maybe more, of the population wouldn't even know a "World Cup" was taking place.
Good effort anyway trying to stir up interest gettingthere.
