Other teams support

Post by Columbo » Thu Oct 31, 2019 10:27 am

This is a bit of a silly season topic, but interested to see if I'm a weird outlier - after Ireland what international sides do you cheer on?

The reason I ask is that I recently said in a whatsapp group that I was cheering on England against NZ, and would also support them against either Wales or SA. Which seemed controversial...

Leaving aside tier 2 nations (I'll always support Fiji, Tonga, Samoa etc against a Tier 1 side) here is my hierarchy:

1. Ireland
2. Italy
3. France
4. Scotland
5. Argentina
6. Australia
7. England
8. South Africa
9. New Zealand
10. Wales

And in fairness I should really include Japan after this WC - they'd go in high, in fact potentially into 2...

I think I'd prefer to think of it like like electrons in an atom. The electrons in the inner orbits can sometimes move from one orbit to another, dependent upon how well they're doing. Success is bad but none can reach the treacherous belt from which Scotland can Wales can never escape

1. Ireland
2. Italy (god love them), France (for a decade of ineptness)
3. Argentina (should be higher based on performances only), England (probably going to be relegated next week)
4. Australia, South Africa
5.
6.
7.
8. New Zealand
