i've decided to set up a rugby world cup competition, which is part fantasy league, part prediction game. here's the basic rules.

team pool lists are at RWC 2003 pools

2003 rugby world cup fantasy league rules

Pick 4 teams(one from each pool) to form your ?fantasy team?, no more than 2 from each pool[ED note: this will be lessened if there is alot of intrest]

Each game your team(s) plays in earns your points, depending on how they do.

POOL PLAY SCORING

Event Score

Win 3 points

Loss -2 points

Draw 1 point

Points for X points scored

Points Against X points conceded

KNOCKOUT ROUND SCORING

Event Score

Win 6 points

Loss -4 points

Draw 2 point

Points for X points scored x2

Points Against X points conceded x2

please post your teams in this thread :)

Im taking Japan and the three south pacific island nations: Samoa, Fiji, and Tonga

here's the REAL ruling:

in the rulesheet in the origional post, it states the following:

Pick 4 teams(one from each pool) to form your ?fantasy team?, no more than 2 from each pool[ED note: this will be lessened if there is alot of intrest]

therefore TheSharkSays' roster is invalid. TheSharkSays must pick from Argentina and Nambia, the 2 unclaimed teams from group a.  you must also pick from japan and Fiji for your group B pick. Somoa And Tonga are in your roster. this is all :)

If anyone is interested my Aussie sports community runs tipping comps (I think you guys call 'em "Prediction Leagues") at a website called www.oztips.com.  

If you wanna play against a few rugby fans (and those who prefer league and Australian Football) then register and join comp 26514, password "wallaby."

Sorry about the ad, but just letting you know... especially with only 24 hours to the first game!

Hmmm,

Well Argentine, France, England and New Zealand would be my picks.

For the record my personal prediction for the World cup,

semis:

NZ beat Australia and England beat France

Final

In a rousing match England hold out to win by 3 points or less!

Ps is it fair that the originator of the contest gets to choose the two best teams before anyone else gets a chance??

i only chose 2 good teams in my pick of 4, add that to the fact that i only decided to do the thing with 2 days to go before the start, and i didnt know what else to do. georgia and italia go to saintsfan.

Ireland, England, New Zealand, and ?(not sure).

The Irish eat dirt for supper along with their potatoes so they're tough & mean (I'm Irish).

Well the English, see above but no potatoes.

The team from New Zealand is castoffs from Austrialia and they're from England

So there you have it - the toughest of the world. (IMO) :;):
