Layout | Feltron Report 2011-2011

Nicholas Felton has released his annual Feltron report. This report covers both 2010 and 2011, as the 2010 Feltron report was a chronicle of the life of Nicholas’ father. As usual the report is expertly crafted and presented. The focus is specifically on the locations he visited over the two year period.

Layout | Rugby World Cup Semifinals

The four semifinalists for the Rugby World Cup have been decided, and I got all the hard to pick games wrong. The French decided to finally play some rugby, Wales played the best rugby I have seen them put together and Australia somehow beat South Africa despite having no ball or territory.

I am feeling very nervous for the semifinal between New Zealand and Australia with New Zealand now down to their third and fourth choice pivots, though admittedly the third choice 10, Aaron Cruden, probably played better when he came on than Slade had been playing. Still, with Weepu stepping up to the plate to direct the game and do the kicking, we should still be alright. Australia have their own worries with the form of Cooper and the fitness of Beale. As usual though the game will be decided up front. I pick the New Zealand pack to front up well against Australia, giving the backs just enough to shade Australia and win.

For the other semifinal, I am picking Wales to continue their march to their first World Cup Final, although you can never write off the French.

Layout | Rugby World Cup Quarter Finals

I have been very busy at work, hence the lack of posts of late. However, I am now through that and back online. The Rugby World Cup is now entering the exciting knock out phase. New Zealand, even without Dan Carter, should be too good for Argentina, but the other three Quarter Finals are all hard to pick. I think that England should be too good for a French team that did not deserve to qualify, Ireland will be too strong for an impressive Wales and South Africa will squeeze the life out of Australia.

Now that the second week of action is complete for the Rugby World Cup, I thought that I would update my two score sheets and repost, one a calendar, the other an atlas. Click on the images below to get full resolution PDFs.
