Rugby World Cup 2015 Predictions
Among 20 different nations competition at this year’s Rugby World Cup, New Zealand aka All Blacks are set to be the hot favorites for winning the World Cup. Australia and England can put a stop to this and take away the coveted prize as well. England will have home advantage and will look repeat the heroics of 2003.
You can also bet on South Africans as they will try to bully everyone and push aside the competition. Their robust and physical game style is something that stifles almost every opposition. What would be interesting is that Ireland will be competing within England and you can expect some amazing banters and sledges. For now we can predict is that they will go out in the quarters, again.
