AB,

Quote
A miraculous gift from God which is beyond all human understanding.

Thank you for your expression of incoherent, un-evidenced, un-argued, internally contradictory expression of blind faith.

Quite incredible that the number of candidates is reducing this slowly. We're still five and half months away from the Iowa caucus

The essential dilemma of my life is between my deep desire to belong and my suspicion of belonging.

Riding along in my automobile
 I'm anxious to tell her the way I feel
 So I told her softly and sincere
 And she leaned and whispered in my ear
 Cuddlin' more and drivin' slow
 With no particular place to go

So Serena Williams vs Sharapova in the first round of the US Open - that should be interesting - you have to suspect a fairly easy win for Williams.

I donít disagree with you, but it is something that can be tested fairly easily to find out if it is true.
I would say that England could field a B team made up of players not in the World Cup squad that would beat any team that has failed to qualify. If the objective was simply match fitness or improving tac tics etc hat would IMO be a better option than playing minows. Of course, there is a benefit to the minows to having matches against England.
I suspect you are right.
I suppose that the relatively small pool of rugby teams and the big drop off in quality, combined with geography means that there isn't much choice.
