Hart and Mains talk Rugby World Cup
Added: Mon 01 Oct 2007
Twenty teams started, eight teams remain, five from the southern hemisphere, and three from the northern hemisphere.
But will this be the first Rugby World Cup ever with no northern teams in the final four?
Of those eight teams left, the All Blacks are now clear favourites. But we have been favourites before, and not won.
Just ask all black coaches Laurie Mains and John Hart.
Campbell Live did, and the pair agreed that whilst they do feel a few jitters, it will be a New Zealand - South Africa final, and we'll win it by six to eight points.
And looking into the nearer future, both men believe New Zealand, Australia, Argentina and South Africa will make up the final four.
