It's been a tough first round with just 113 of the original 180 still standing. It would appear that women can keep going longer though with a whopping 87% of the girls who entered still standing compared with just 69% of the fellas! Come on lads, proceed with caution in Round 2!
It took that last gasp try in the opening match to save the blushes of no fewer than 27 of you who fancied England to easily defeat Fiji by more than 20 points! Hard luck to the 5 troops who fancied Fiji, but it was a little early for the rest of us to gloat though.
38 of us expected the Springboks to easily dispense with Japan, but we certainly didn't expect the fate that befell us. Not surprisingly there wasn't a single person who took a punt on Japan to come within 30 points of RSA, let alone beat them. Not a bad way to lose a tenner!
And of course congratulations to the boys in green. No fewer than 43 of you called that one right.
