The former hooker born in Tasmania, might not have the wisdom of Chinese proverb, however, is one of the best rugby analysist money can buy. After all, his mother was a Japanese not Chinese, so maybe that is where he got his work ethic from and continuesly being a student of the game.
Eddie reckons that the Poms won’t win the World Cup in NZ. Yes, not that the majority rugby fans & gurus will disagree with. He reckons the Poms don’t have a good enough halfback combination. Is this the start of the first ‘shots’ fired at the old enemy?
He reckons the All Blacks should win it if they don’t over complicate things for themselves. I agree.
He reckons the Aussies have exciting youngsters. Couldn’t disagree.
He says that the Springboks won’t be happy where they at currently, after 4 years of planning – fairdinkum.
The problem I see, that Eddie might not recognise or maybe just want to keep quiet about is:
England might not be the best team, however, will have a very good pack of forwards. They still could bring in Sir Johnny and that could change things. I believe that the Poms has the psycological advantage over the Wallabies in World Cups. Except for losing the 1991 final against the magical Wallabies, they have beaten the Wallabies in 1995, 2003 and 2007!
