We have a winner. \o/ Although only just.

silsbee329 7 - 8 lakester (France vs New Zealand)

Sorrow to Bethbetter, France were AMAZING today and totally nearly won a world cup and should have won a world cup, but they did not win a world cup, and probably New Zealand deserve it a little bit so yes.

Congratulations, lakester!:):):):):):):) ::DANCES YOU VERY::

If you all let me have addresses I will attempt to do posting in at least a slightly timely fashion. \o/

If you could see my face, it is the face of someone that is FINE. Whatever.
jekesta 18 - 21 ruthi (Wales vs Australia)

It's not like I wanted sweets anyway.

ruthi you win a very very few sweets for beating my team and making them sad. Well done. (Seriously, though, if you tell me if you hate anything or are allergic to anything, I will pick you out appropriate sweets, and if you pm me your address, or comment it to me if you can't be bothered with messaging, the first post on my journal is private, or email it to me if you don't trust livejournal security, jekesta at livejournal dotcom. lakester and silsbee329, you two could both do this as well actually, please, since you are both guaranteed sweets of some amount or other.)

And the final is still on Sunday and it's still the same people and then the world cup will be OVER.

Rugby's RUBBISH.
jekesta 8 - 9 silsbee329 (Wales vs France)

I repeat. RUBBISH. The referee was HALF FRENCH, I am not even lying. And he sent our captain off after twenty minutes over a tackle, which wasn't a great tackle, but it wasn't evil, and then we had 14 men and they were AMAZING and France were terrible and didn't even score a try against 14 men and now they're in a final and I'm not, and I'm so sad and we just needed two points and we didn't convert our try and we didn't get our penalties and we didn't even try for a drop goal and now Wales aren't world champions and it doesn't even make SENSE.

Tomorrow:
Sunday, 16 Oct, 9 am: ruthi vs lakester (Australia vs New Zealand)

The winner of that match will play France in a final, and PRESUMABLY BEAT THEM, because . . . because. And the loser will play Wales for third place, in the saddest match of a world cup, but with a very few sweets at stake.

Hello! I was away, but there was rugby, and some of it was Quite Good.

Quarter Finals:
whatho 10 - 22 jekesta (Ireland vs Wales)
[insanejournal.com profile] yonmei 12 - 19 silsbee329 (England vs France)

gralyn 9 - 11 ruthi (South Africa vs Australia)
lakester 33 - 10 lolabobs (New Zealand vs Argentina)

No sweets for: whatho, [insanejournal.com profile] yonmei, gralyn, or lolabobs. Sorry.

I want Wales to be world champions more than ANYTHING.

Semi-finals:
Saturday, 15 Oct, 9 am: jekesta vs silsbee329 (Wales vs France)
Sunday, 16 Oct, 9 am: ruthi vs lakester (Australia vs New Zealand)

I would wish you all good luck, but I wouldn't mean it. Shame on you all if you steal glory from Wales.

(The last four teams are red, blue, yellow and black, which are the colours of croquet. I hope they cancel rugby and decide it by croquet instead. Although if they did it would be Wales and Australia vs France and New Zealand and I don't want to share sweets triumph with Australia.)

Today:
1.00 - lolabobs 25 - 7 morganmuffle (Argentina vs Georgia)
3.30 - lakester 79 - 15 cynjen (New Zealand vs Canada)
6.00 - jekesta 66 - 0 fastfoodjunkie (Wales vs Fiji)
8.30 - whatho 36 - 6 meedja (Ireland vs Italy)

THAT'S IT! That's the end of the group stages, so if you're not in a quarter final you are not in the world cup any more and will not get any sweets.

Quarter Finals:
1. whatho vs jekesta (Ireland vs Wales)
2. [insanejournal.com profile] yonmei vs silsbee329 (England vs France)

3. gralyn vs ruthi (South Africa vs Australia)
4. lakester vs lolabobs (New Zealand vs Argentina)

They're so neatly organised into north vs south. And the two hemispheres won't meet until the final. This is basically TERRIFIC NEWS for the north. It's all we need from a world cup, just to have to play half the world.

Everyone in the top four there has a great chance of getting to the final. They're really hard matches to call, England and France are both crap, and Wales and Ireland are both super.

CLEARLY everyone in the bottom half (except Argentina, sorry Lola, sorry Argentina) has a great chance of not just getting to the final, but also winning it. Whatever.

They're being played next weekend, the first two on Saturday, the others on Sunday. None of you care. But it'll be awesome.

Today:
3.30 - ruthi 68 - 22 sabethea (Australia vs Russia)
6.00 - silsbee32914 -19 girlofprey (France vs Tonga)
8.30 - [insanejournal.com profile] yonmei 16 - 12 alicamel (England vs Scotland)
Oh my god, France. Oh my god, England. They're both through (and playing each other) even though France lost, and fell apart, and England are England. I think Australia are through too, although it's still not sure if they'll be top or second in their group. Scotland still could be, but they will need Argentina to lose badly tomorrow.

Tomorrow:
1.00 - lolabobs vs morganmuffle (Argentina vs Georgia)
3.30 - lakester vs cynjen (New Zealand vs Canada)
6.00 - jekesta vs fastfoodjunkie (Wales vs Fiji)
8.30 - whatho vs meedja (Ireland vs Italy)
Fiji beat Wales last time round. But probably we just won't let that happen again. Ireland need to beat Italy, I think. Even though they've already beaten Australia, which you'd think would be enough. Still, they probably will.

And that is the end of the group stages. So tomorrow we will know quarter final places \o/

Today:
gralyn 13 - 5 matildabj (S.Africa vs Samoa)

Okay. That score line does not do that match justice, and I get really cross when people say that about snooker, because actually usually John Higgins does so 'deserve' to be five frames ahead, (it's not like he doesn't give EVERY CHANCE POSSIBLE TO HIS OPPONENT) but South Africa DO NOT DESERVE to win that match by 8 points, they didn't really deserve to win it at all, I have no idea how Samoa didn't score ALL THEIR TRIES, they tried so hard to score them all, and they were so lovely, and S.Africa were stumbling because they were pretending to be dressed as England which is ALWAYS FOOLISH. Samoa losing means that Wales don't have to be as spectacular against Fiji and that's all very well, but SAMOA YOU WERE SUPER.

Tomorrow:
3.30 - ruthi vs sabethea (Australia vs Russia)
6.00 - silsbee329 vs girlofprey (France vs Tonga)
8.30 - [insanejournal.com profile] yonmei vs alicamel (England vs Scotland)

I hate tomorrow.
