We are now nearly two weeks in to the Rugby World Cup and the favourites are all beginning to put their stamp on the competition. New Zealand brushed aside Japan, England started slow against Georgia however gradually stepped up the pace and South Africa comfortably defeated Fiji.

Another rugby league convert features in this weeks boot spotting. The New Zealand man came off the bench against Japan to score two tries in his new position on the wing. Has the New Zealand coach Graham Henry found a way of playing Sonny Bill in the same team as Ma’a Nonu and Conrad Smith?

Jamie Heaslip

The reputation of Jamie Heaslip seems to improve after every game that he plays. Another solid performance against Australia showed everyone that he is still the player that travelled to South Africa with the Lions two years ago.

Anthony Perenise

Plays for: Bath and Samoa

Wears: Mizuno Wave Ignitus 2 K Leather Boots Blue Danube, White & Dress Blue

Bath will be happy to see their new prop Perenise showing the world what he can do at the RWC. Although the Samoans did not beat Wales, they certainly showed other teams not to under-estimate them.

Danie Roussow

Plays for: Bulls and South Africa

Wears: Puma Powercat C 1.10 WC Boots White, Black & Silver

After years of the South African second row being Matfield and Botha, it seems that Danie Roussow is finally being given the opportunity to show the coaching team what he can bring to the team. It will be interesting to see which pairing is selected as the competition progresses.
