    I'll get the ball rolling.

    Who will win? I can only see New Zealand as being the stand out. If someone (probably the French, English or South Africans) happen to beat them then it's anyone's.

    Who will be the beaten finalist? This is very tough to pick but because of home advantage I can see England squeaking into a final. Anywhere else in the world and they'd not be a chance.

    Which three players will dominate the tournament? Keiran Read, Mike Brown, Ben Smith

    Will Ireland beat France? Yes, but it should be close. We are better than them but it's a one off game so anything can happen. They have great players but are not a great team.

    Where will Ireland finish? Semi-final. I think we can win a semi against England or Australia but would have them at favourites. Not by much though.

    Which minnow will perform the best? That's a tough one. If you can call Fiji a minnow, everyone is tipping them to do well. I reckon Scotland might even cause an upset at some stage. They're by no means a minnow but they might take a big scalp.

    Which Irish player will announce themself to the rest of the world? So many. In the rest of the worlds media, it's really only Sexton, O'Connell and possibly O'Brien that they know too much about. Henshaw and Henderson are the obvious candidates. I reckon McGrath will impress too.

    Which Munster player will perform best? If Earls can get a start, he could be great. O'Mahony will announce himself to the rest of the World. We know how good he is. Also Donnacha Ryan could have a huge tournament if he can get game time.

          I can foresee a lot of damage to my liver if I watch all the games Nige takes charge of.

          Also, clearly put together by a Leinster supporter. Three fingers for Sexton missing a shot at goal? :p
          Tis but a scratch.

                Ireland to crush them Kiwis in the Twix Cup Finale long after seeing off France. Roman Poite to outshine all-comers. Robbie Henshaw will come to light and clearly by a long distance Conor Murray will be player of the tournament. Unflappable. Best of the minnows? It has to be Fiji

                  "I don't believe in fairytales," O'Connell once told me, "even though it feels like I've been lucky enough to live through a few. However it ends, I'll feel lucky."

                      NONU!!! How could I forget him. I think he's probably in the best form of any player in the world at the minute. Along with Ben Smith and Aaron Smith (never mind Milner-Skudder)
