Good evening voters and commentors.

Australia are not going to win the Rugby Union world Cup!!!!!!!!!!

Another team in union are going to win the World Cup.

South Africa won the world cup 4 years ago so they might win this year but I think New Zealand will win since they have the home croud advantage.

Thankyou for being my opponent Dragonite 5!!!!!!!

Thankyou very much Yoshi33 for inviting me to particapate in this debate.
First of all, I would like to describe the recent form of the South African team.
South Africa were thrashed 40 to 7 by New Zealeand and lost 36 - 26 to Australia.
With the inclusion of Quade Cooper, Will Genia, Scott Higginbotham, Digby Ioane and the 2 Faingaii brothers, the Wallabies have become a world class side.
They should fair out well against New Zealand and will definately flog South Africa.
Thankyou!

Go The Wallabies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dude, we have plenty to be proud of. How many epic Lord of the Rings trilogies were filmed in YOUR country?

Proud New Zealander is any oxymoron :)

As a proud New Zealander, I can assure you it's called the Rugby World Cup, not the Rugby Union World Cup. And yes, we are going to win!

Reasons for voting decision: Both side had poor sentence structure, grammar, or spelling, though Pro managed to rebut Con's case somewhat effectively (if one considers the nature of a one-round debate).

Reasons for voting decision: Con was foolish to make this debate one round. There are obvious and massive flaws in pro's argument, but con could not address them. Next time, have at least 2 rounds. Also, con, it's not enough to assert your beliefs, pro was right to use evidence. Aff win. Both sides had really poor S
