I think I've seen at least part of every game so far... but that's because I live where it's all happening!
USA did pretty well today against Ireland. Clever is a very likeable guy and their centre who scored the intercept try was one of their best on the day, so he deserved it.

Yeah they look competitive, I haven't looked at their draw but there so many games on TV can't believe there like 20 teams in the World cup, I think its the 3rd largest competitive sport for a team sport just outside of basketball and soccer.

Well... there are 20 teams but only a handful that are really any good...

USA play Russia, Australia and Italy now that they've played Ireland.

The teams that should progress to the quarter-finals are South Africa, Wales or Samoa (could be close), Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, France, England and Argentina (unless Scotland can beat them).
The likes of Romania, Georgia, Namibia, Japan, USA, Russia, Canada don't really have a chance.
Fiji, Tonga, Scotland, Italy can all put up a fight and could sneak through, but while the 'minnows' have put up competitive showings so far, the 'top' teams should all easily go through. When teams are happy to lose by 20 or something you know there's a pretty big gulf...

Be interesting Australia Vs USA this Friday, I think since Australia lost recently there are going to be pumped to have a big game.
