    Rugby World Cup - Group Stage - Round 3

    The 2011 Rugby World Cup group stage continues throughout the week with a fixture per day from Tuesday through Friday. The tournament served up its first major upset when the Wallabies lost 15-6 to Ireland on Saturday. No team that has lost a game in the group stage has ever gone on to win the World Cup, but the Wallabies are still a chance to win the tournament, albeit with a tougher fixture list.

    This weekend provides two great fixtures, with the All Blacks facing their World Cup nemesis France, while Argentina and Scotland face off for what is likely a fight for second place in Group B.

    If all goes to plan, the quarter-finals are shaping up as follows:

    Top half of the draw:

    Ireland vs Wales
    England vs France (most likely) or New Zealand

    Bottom half of the draw:

    South Africa vs Australia
    New Zealand (most likely) or France vs Argentina or Scotland

    If Argentina beat Scotland then the knock out stage could feature northern hemisphere teams on one half of the draw and southern hemisphere teams on the other half.

    Australia's loss to Ireland means the runner up of Group A (either New Zealand or France) will still fancy their chances to go deep in the tournament.

    Below are the odds for the remaining round 3 fixtures (subject to change).
