Deabs predicts best World Cup yet

12:26 pm on 26 February 2011

The Wallabies coach Robbie Deans believes this year's Rugby World Cup will be the best in the tournament's 24-year history and the hardest to win.

Deans is predicting the September/October tournament will produce the most attractive rugby, there'll be more genuine contenders than usual, and unlike many who feel the All Blacks could suffocate under the pressure to end their World Cup drought, Deans feels the expectation and support at home will help them.

He also says he's very excited about the state of his Wallabies squad, who're ranked number two in the world at the moment.
