Another close game for me, but Fiji to edge it.  Too strong for Ireland

Ireland to win a tight game.

I will be there at least. :)

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

Fiji with too much pace, power and skill out wide.

Just read that Simon Grix has pulled out as he needs surgery. Disappointing that.

Think Fiji may run away with it in the end.

Not able to get to Cardiff so this is my first game of the world cup...  really looking forward it but have no idea about there relative strengths except to say that I think I be looking for a Fiji win for no rational reason....

 

Also looking forward to having a hotpot pie.. not had one for a while since moving across to Yorkshire... well I hope they do hotpot pie's or something close...

They do a rather excellent cottage pie for £2. Meat and potato pies are very good as well, and they do peas as well! Not that that's the only reason I'm a frequent visitor to Spotland for both sports!

Fiji looked a very powerful outfit on Saturday albeit against a weakened Rochgale Hornets side. I can't see beyond them at the moment.

Looking forward to this.  In the willbuts stand.  The Irish will need that famous team spirit and a lot of team work as Fiji look stronger on paper. Hoping for a close hard fought game 22-20 and don't mind for which team that would be.

Fiji look a really dangerous side to me. Ireland amazed me at the last World Cup - I will never forget that night in Parra - but surely Fiji will be too big and strong. Should be an amazing occasion.

Hoping for an Irish victory, but fear Fiji will run away with it in the second half. I hope the Irish prove me wrong.

Was that the Ireland v Tonga match? Really enjoyed that one.
