Overview

<b>Strengths:</b> A third of the squad have already won a World Cup and now they have the advantage of playing at home. <br/> <b>Weaknesses:</b> Have struggled with injuries all season and some of their more experienced players are showing signs of age. <br/> <b>Prediction:</b> Should win pool and quarter-final but will need to be at their very best to overcome likely semi-final opponents New Zealand. <br/> <b>World Ranking:</b> 4
