We are well overdue a decent performance at a RWC, the post 2003 legacy (including the 2007 final) haven't really been the stuff of dreams!
Overuse of the word ‘unbelievable’ - “When a man eats his own head, I will hold me hands up and say: ‘THAT is unbelievable’.” Guy Martin, Full time truck mechanic, part time motorcycle racer, occasional TV star. 2011.
The issue as with 2015 is that we are again in the pool where there are 3 teams that expect the progress to the knockout stage. As long as we win our matches it is no issue, but unlike the other pools we are not "guaranteed" to progress. Nor is France or Argentina of course, so they also will be feeling unfortunate.
