Rugby World Cup

Just thought for those who might be interested, but dropped away when the 2 North American teams were eliminated, the final is between NZ and Australia, this coming Saturday night for you people - I'm sure you will have it on some channel or other if you do a search. Downunder it is on some God-awful time Sunday morning for us. It should be a very good and tight game. It'll make watching gridiron footy look like watching grass grow. Give it a go...
Either way, one of my teams wins...

For our US friends - if you have ever seen any of the "Lord of the Rings" series of movies, most of the Orcs - the baddies - were actually NZ All Black Rugby players with little make up needed - you can see what we are up against.

Go the Wallabies!!!

Called the Eagles....have made great strides these last few years. Unfortunately your captain just defected to a better paying English team.

Last I heard the Eagles had no paid players, at least full time paid players.

My wife enjoyed seeing her All Blacks kick the Wallabies butt. Seriously though, good match Aussies.

"Rugby players eat their dead"

Interesting that in NZ , when a NZ team wins , no cars get burned , shops looted !

Have they no team spirit?

No, they don't have many cars or shops.
