OK my stab at it:

Men Div 1
- Ireland over France by 120 pts
- NZ over Fiji by 40 pts
- USA over SA by 7 pts
- PNG over Nauru by 25 pts
- GB over Canada by 1 pt

Men Div 2
- Japan over Pakistan by 80 pts
- Croatia over Indonesia by 20 pts
- China over Sri Lanka by 40 pts
- Germany over India by 60 pts

Women
- Canada over Pakistan by 110 pts
- Ireland over Europe Crusaders by 100 pts
- USA over PNG by 1 pt (absolutely no idea on this one, will be fascinating to gauge where PNG are at)
- Great Britain over Fiji by 10 pts

If some of those Women's games do play out as the thrashings I predict then perhaps IC21 will see the women go to 2 divisions as well.

Yes I know, IC20, but I continue to want to see it go to every 4 years, and we did see several past teams not make it this time so I think the novelty wearing off and financial hardship are starting to show - missing are men's Tonga, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Samoa, Spain, Timor Leste, Peace Team, and women's Tonga. Would love to see IC every 4 years, regional championships on the 2 years in-between (so IC2017, regional champs 2019, IC2021).

Regards the sides that aren't there - I think that's something worth us investigating, particularly as to how the IC factors in to their current situation. I would suggest we look at them in two groups - firstly, there's Samoa, Spain, Timor Leste and Finland where I don't think any footy is being played at all at present (in Samoa's case not for years now).

Then the other group are Denmark, Sweden and (I think) Tonga, where the local league is active and playing regularly, but have not been able to (or elected not to) send a side.

The Peace Team is a separate issue as they weren't based on a domestic league like the others.

Be interesting to see what discussion comes out of this year's conference.

My tips:

Men's Div 1 - PNG, Ireland, NZ, US, GB
Men's Div 2 - China, Japan, Germany, Croatia

Women's - Canada, Fiji, Ireland, PNG

I think those are identical to Mick's?
