The World Cup is finally underway and the southern hemisphere giants are off to a flying start. New Zealand, Australia and South Africa all posted devastating displays with the promise of more to come, so France and England are looking deep into their squads for much-needed inspiration. South Africa machine Bryan Habana scored four tries after the first round of games but it's his co lleague, Percy Montgomery, who leads the points table with 32 points. Is it time to get rid of some of those Six Nations flops?

Manager of the ROUND

Alan Jones has won the first Manager of the Round award

with his team, Kam's Warriors, striding majestically to the top of the leader board with 140 points. This was based on the New World's battering ram performances, with Bryan Habana and Percy Montgomery (SA), Richie McCaw (NZ) and Chris Latham (Aus) ensuring Down Under profited most from weak first game opposition. It's a tale of two Alans at the top, though, as Alan Dunn's Keswick Krushers are within a tap tackle of our leader. Round Two awaits, with the big match

between the abrasive South Africans

and the disorient ed English. Let's see who fronts up.
