Who knows where we'll be in three years' time?

GOING into Monday's draw for the World Cup, I was hoping that we would avoid New Zealand from pot one and Wales from pot three, but who knows where we will be in three years' time?

France could be the best team in the world and Italy could be causing upsets all over the Six Nations.

But I always think that you have a better chance against teams you play more regularly and that's why I am really envious of Argentina at the moment. They get to play New Zealand, Australia and South Africa a couple of times a year and you can see the benefits already.

The fact that we are playing teams we face every year does make it look a little easier, but three years is a long time and a lot can happen.
