Wallabies 2011 World Cup Draw

Bill - in the bag

Bill - in the bag

Forget the Euro tour stuff up, the RWC 2011 is as good as in the bag. According the draw below, if everything goes to ceding, then we avoid both the All Blacks and South Africa until the final. Our quarter final likely against Wales (ah well) and then the Argies or Frogs in the semi’s.

To me there doesn’t really seem a group of death, although the Fijians in group D could always trip someone up, and the Tongans could have the French on the wrong day.

Pool A: New Zealand, France, Tonga, Americas 1, Asia 1
Pool B: Argentina, England, Scotland, Europe 1, play-off winner
Pool C: Australia, Ireland, Italy, Europe 2, Americas 2
Pool D: South Africa, Wales, Fiji, Oceania 1, Africa 1
Quarter-final 1: Pool B winner v Pool A runner-up
Quarter-final 2: Pool C winner v Pool D runner-up
Quarter-final 3: Pool A winner v Pool B runner-up
Quarter-final 4: Pool D winner v Pool C runner-up
Semi-final 1: quarter-final 1 winner v Quarter-final 2 winner
Semi-final 2: quarter-final 3 winner v quarter-final 4 winner
Final: semi-final 1 winner v semi-final 2 winner
