Who thinks we won't get out of our group? I don't think we're in much danger of losing to Italy, Russia or USA.

I know the country is F^cked, but rugby hasn't quite gone down the tubes yet.
Ok I know DK has to get over his lovefest with Buckley, Hayes and Mod in particular with Wallace squared in attendance.
But even so, only Italy would come even close to an upset and Australia talk a good game, but really what have they done in the last 10 years.
