    - Make sure you have your log in details to hand. If you donít have an account you will need to create one in order to apply for tickets

    - In this phase you are applying for the tickets and matches you wish to purchase. No payment will be taken at this time

    - The deadline for submitting an application is 18:00 BST on September 29, 2014

    - During October we will review all matches and any that are oversubscribed will be balloted to ensure fair ticket allocation

    While the Kiwis will start as favourites, they are too prone to choking to put any money on them, but being realistic as things stand today can only really see SA or England running them close but still best part of a year before kick off so still time for Scotland to mould themselves into a winning team......

    Undeniably so, but what must be considered that in all those "chokes" the All Blacks did not have the best coach in the tournament e.g. Bob Dwyer (Wallabies) 1991, in 1995 Suzy got them but in the other losses they had shite coaches...now they arguably have the best on the planet. Place your bets on anybody else at your risk.

    I don't believe the ticket problems will be as bad a s expected other than for the final stages. Despite the number of registred players the game (sadly) is no where near as well supported as it could be.
    Apart from the Six Nations games and a few top sides like Nothampton, Leicester and maybe Bath/Gloucester, there just is not the following in this country. Even Saracens who have great fiancial backing and sponsorship have a ground capacity of just 10,000.

    It's a real pity because some of the second and third tier sides are great to watch and they will just end up getting trounced by the big boys.
    I hope I am proved wrong because a successful RWC in England would give the game some real impetus and generate funding for the expansion of a game that I feel is a great sporting spectacle.

    The Wobblies v Barbarians match in Nov has already sold 50,000 tickets..

    ^^I applied for 3 tickets for Scotland - USA at Elland Road which has a nearly 40,000 capacity thinking that would be a guarantee of tickets and even that has been over subscribed, deadline for applications was 29 September and now I have to wait to see if I get lucky in a ballot should know by 27 this month according to last email.

    I blame the Americans. They will watch anything.

    USA v SCotland will probably be an entertaining match and a good chance for the Eagles to take a scalp.

    Looking at the pools now, it's boggling that NZ have only the Argies and the Saffas only have Manu Samoa, while we are all in the pool of death together.
    Surely when they drew this they must have had some thoughts that it wasn't right, nor good for the comp.

    The IRB system awards points for the quality of the opposition if you manage to win a game. The chances of tier 1 nations playing recognised tests against the minnows means they will only ever be top of tier 2 or 3.
    Form comes and goes with every tour and every set of autumn games so setting the seeding so far out was bound to be a bad idea. In the end it may actually be about right, by accident rather than design.

    When the draw was done Samoa were somehow ranked 8th in the world and Scotland and Wales outside the top 8 and Scotland got fukin lucky with the draw being in the third lot out the hat and getting Samoa.

    Then it's probably all our fault, letting Samoa beat us and then US beating Wales half a dozen times in 2 years.

    I would think so. One of the best matches I went to in the 2011 was the Wallabies versus Italy. The game was entertaining, and although the Wallabies were always going to win the crowd were right behind the Italians and really lifted them. I was sitting among Aussies who were miffed at what they thought was disloyalty. They honestly thought we would be cheering for them.

    On the other hand the England Scotland game was a bloody bore, except for the English fans who were worth the price of admission alone.

    The draw is based on world rankings, and the Saffas will know they have been in a game with Manu Samoa...who is playing the Saffas next?

    Oh FFS you know shit about the game. The 1991 ABs were not anywhere near it. They were a sad old bunch and it would not have mattered if they had God coaching them.

    Didn't have the best coach. Pfffft! That's the best excuse i've ever heard!

    You are a troll of the highest order Bruce.What a cock.

    Go on...pop off to the Soccer thread. Be a good boy now.....

    Incoming to Google...and then further incoming to see who they actually were...Alex Wylie and John Hart who spent as much time snubbing each other as coaching.
