This is tediously long. Wish they would just get on with it.

Wales in a group with Australia and Fiji, for the third consecutive World Cup. The last time we weren’t in a group with Fiji was 2003!

No real group of death there, Pool B is possibly the closest in terms of a shock where either Ireland or South Africa don't go through. I would expect the to 2 seeded teams to go through in all 4 pools.

I'd take Argentina over Japan any day (unless I misread something...)

Australia are definitely 'beatable', except that historically they have a much better record of peaking in time for the RWC than Wales!

Sorry I agree, I should have said with the exception of pool 4.

if this pool took place tomorrow, I'd back Fiji and Aus to both finish above us
Pivac will be long gone come world cup time though , so I expect us to get through and could even top the group
 
Either  France or  England will win it imo

Quick question, what would Pivac have to do in the 6N for him to get the 2 year extension?

In my opinion beat Scotland, Italy and one of Ireland, France or England as a minimum.

I think we also need to see a pattern of play developing, improvements in our set piece, defence and attack.

Just about everything really!!!
