Or do they?

Because we're manly men with manly men brain damage.

You've got to get past Fiji first.  Be a (slightly) tougher row to how than Uruguay.

RE: Rugby World Cup 2019
@The Valkyrie  The term of "Rugby World Cup" is funny because the name of this tournament doesn't indicate it is a "Rugby Union" (15 players) tournament.
There are many games called "Rugby" and "Rugby Union" is one of many variants of this game.
There are Rugby Sevens (Seven players , variant of rugby union) , Rugby league sevens (Seven players , variant of rugby league) , Rugby league nines (Nine players , variant of rugby league) , Rugby Tens (Ten players , variant of rugby union) , Rugby League (13 players) etc...

I know, right?  I've been playing rugby off and on for four decades.  Loved to be lectured on stuff that's second nature to me.

I used to be in a social team but had to stop playing when I broke a finger.

Doesn’t sound like much but consider my job...

Oh, and league isn’t real rugby and 7s and other variants are hobby sports.

NZ are ALWAYS the favourites. There's a fair chance that NZ and Ireland will face off in the quarter finals.  Not sure I could bear to watch that one.
