The 2011 Rugby World Cup is finally upon us. Fans across the world have been waiting for this moment since South Africa lifted up the cup in celebration of their victory over England in 2007.
The sports phenomenon is scheduled to begin on September 10, with the final game being played on the October 23.
The massive event will be hosted by New Zealand, and the home All Black are considered perennial favorites to take home their first World Cup since 1987. Among other teams who are considered front runners are Australia, South Africa, England, Ireland, France, Argentina, Wales and Scotland.
Here are my predictions for the 2011 Rugby World Cup.
