In the Six Nations, France beat Italy 29 - 24.

The WC results are as follows:

Fr v ABs 27-13
Fr v UR 27-12

Can you spot the difference? So, are the ABs on a par with Uruguay? The results would support this viewpoint!

Italy beat Uruguay 38-17. Italy currently leads Pool A. Yet, Rugby Pass supporters rate the ABs 94% to beat Italy.

The ABs did beat Nambia by more points than Italy managed, but the ABs gave away 13 penalties (one red card) and allowed the Nambia team into our 22 m, eight times.

The ABs also had lost 13 turnovers.

The Press was told the ABs scrum was better against Nambia, yet the Abs only won 83% of the scrums.

The ABs also missed ten tackles. Also the ABs allowed 2 line-breaks.

Do these statistics support such high confidence in an AB win? Will a stronger opposition exploit the ABs weaknesses or succumb to our razzle-dazzle!

As to the Razzle Dazzle, Italy have scored more tries than the ABs in the last 5 games, so they may have some Razzle Dazzle as well.

Yet like the 94% of the Rugby Pass folk, I am certain of an AB victory, sort of!
