Can someone please help!
Wales have drawn New Zealand in the world cup, does that mean if they lose they are out instantly or is it the same sysytem as footall and they still have a chance of stayin in because of a box system thingy

    League or Union. I assume its Union for now, I seem to remember they have group stages first. Maybe Wales will beat the Kiwis anyway, have you no faith <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    It is the top 2 that go thru in each pool, however, unlike the last world cup which had 5 pools to suit the 'Home Nations' and France, it's pretty much kill or be killed. Wales' organisation was very good financially for their own home union and Englands, but sucked something chronic for the Irish and the Scottish.

    Oz have returned it to the tradional set up of previous World Cups, but are still so money orientated that you guys from the Northern Hemisphere are going to fry...and I mean fry! It'll be during our Summer here which averages 35 degrees celsius but the bloody humility is hell on earth!

    The Kiwis are lucky because they've acclimatised already...but God help you lot when you come 'Down Under'! Kiwis and Ozzies will meet in the Semi's with the Frogs and Poms on the other side...

    Get ready for the 'Thunder Down Under' October 2003!
