Ostrich Pillow

There's no point hiding from it. If I can get the kick off of Wales' last pool game wrong (passsim), I can potentially get their quarter final wrong.

So here, from the horse's mouth, are the fixtures:

Saturday, 14 October

QF1 - 16:00: Wales v Argentina - Stade de Marseille
QF2 - 20:00: Ireland v New Zealand - Stade de France, Saint Denis

Sunday, 15 October

QF3 - 16:00: England v Fiji - Stade de Marseille
QF4 - 20:00: France v South Africa - Stade de France, Saint Denis

Granted, the tournament itself published them in Central European Summer Time so I have had to convert them to British Summer Time, but I suppose that's kinda the point of the exercise.

If we beat Argentina, we will meet the winner of Ireland versus the All Blacks: Friday, 20 October 20:00 our time.

Lose that and we will be in the Bronze Final: Friday, 27 October 20:00 our time.

Win though, and we will be in the Final itself: Saturday 28 October 20:00 our time. And yes indeed it will be our time that has come.
