Shut up! You got two points to not play! My Eagles got nada!

New Zealand (can't go against the All Blacks)
England (though a cross-Tasman semi would be awesome)
Wales (I'm part Welsh)
South Africa (though I'll be cheering for Japan)

Since the final will be worth 4 points, a 3-point lead would be useless. Therefore, I'll pick the same teams.

New Zealand
South Africa

scozy did not make SF picks, and everyone else got South Africa right, but England's upset over New Zealand wrong. Here are the standings going into the final match:

Lord Windmark5
king qaz4
scozy3

The final between England and South Africa will be worth 4 points. Since a tie is not possible, I will not ask for a tiebreaker, which would have been the total number of points in the final. Just pick the winner. You have until update Friday/Saturday, November 1/2, to make your pick. This is for 1 round of cash or tech, so good luck!
