Ok – let’s eliminate absurdites and look at the more realistic scenarios for the Six Nation Teams:
1. In Pool D – Barring losing to Fiji by
62 39 points or more Wales are through the Group of Death in second behind South Africa.
2. In Pool B – Scotland need to beat England by 8 points and restrict England to less than 4 tries to get through in second. If they do Argentina win the group, providing they secure a bonus point win v Georgia. An English bonus point gets them through on top if Scotland don’t score four tries. If Scotland do and England get a bonus point and Argentina score four tries…..I give up.
3. In Pool C an Irish win gets them through on top. Any type of loss sees them out. A draw would put Ireland through
in second place as winners. (All that assumes a bonus point win for Australia v Russia).
4. At least a bonus point for France v Tonga sees them through in second place.
Wales v Ireland, France v England, New Zealand v Argentina, South Africa v Australia….hmmmm tasty or what???
