RUGBY WORLD CUP: Sunday 2 October

Argentina 25, Georgia 6 in Palmerston North (World Cup, Pool B)
New Zealand 79, Canada 15 in Wellington (World Cup, Pool A)
Wales 66, Fiji 0 in Hamilton (World Cup, Pool D)
Ireland 36, Italy 6 in Dunedin (World Cup, Pool C)

I saw Argentina defeat Georgia Sunday. On that performance I can’t see them holding the All Blacks. But then the whole basis of the All Blacks has changed with the injury to Dan Carter.

New Zealand put in a very good performance against the Canadians. Full credit to the North Americans. They have been one of the form teams of the tier 2 nations.

Wales overwhelmed Fiji and Ireland showed they are going to be a force to reckon with at the quarter-finals stage.

After the weekend’s results the quarter finalist are now known

Ireland v Wales in Wellington (World Cup Quarter-final 1)
England v France in Auckland (World Cup Quarter-final 2)

South Africa v Australia in Wellington (World Cup Quarter-final 3)
New Zealand v Argentina in Auckland (World Cup Quarter-final 4)
