SATUR­DAY

Midweek Sport - - TV GUIDE -

YOU’RE go­ing to need an espresso ma­chine and an un­der­stand­ing mis­sus be­cause this is an early one.

It takes, stamina, com­mit­ment and a bloody good alarm clock to get up this early and watch three rugby matches in a row.

Here’s what’s go­ing to hap­pen… Ar­gentina will beat Ro­ma­nia and South Africa will crush Fiji and the Aussies will spank Ire­land. That’s why this tour­na­ment will never grip like the footie one – there’s hardly ever an up­set.

You could clean up at the book­ies, but don’t go blam­ing me if Fiji, Ro­ma­nia and Ire­land win. Why the hell would you take bet­ting ad­vice from a TV critic any­way?
