    Fiji for the mens. South Africa are also very good at 7s, as is NZ but the other two are better.

    I've no idea about womans rugby other hearing and forgetting quickly who won the 6 nations that year.

    We all make mistakes.

    I think the biggest shock was England beating S. Africa im the semis after the way they were playing. Fiji just wasn't themselves.

    My loyalties are torn when England play the ABs
    (but secretly I wanted England to win)

    Fiji were disappointing - I normally root for them
    very entertaining.

    Did you see any of the women's games?
    Some really good players and some big knocks.

    Fiji were great until the semis, as were SA, just looked like they wanted third place more. Guess when you're Olympic champions third at the world cup doesn't matter so much. Did you see the NZ vs France game? 6 minutes against 6 and France still bottled it, they had a lot to prove in the semis and did it excellently, England looked a bit nervous in the final, maybe doesn't have an impact but I don't get why they come out wearing tracksuit tops, it wasn't exactly cold in San Fran.

    I only saw the 15/16th place playoff, PNG looked pretty decent for one of the worse teams there.
