Default Rugby World Cup

Stayed up to watch Canada/Tonga this morning.

It was really entertaining. I like me some Rugby..... these guys are unbelievable.

Plus it was a big win for Canada.

have been watching a fair bit. i played a lot when i was in my teens and early 20's and have always loved the game. now there's a sport where they know how to have intensity on the field and cameraderie off of it. blood and pints...

my brother in law is staying with me right now. he's a kiwi, so naturally has a huge interest. he won the lottery 2+ years ago for tickets to about 10 of the games and then ended up moving to canada and having kids. so much for world cup tickets. he took them to an air new zealand flight a couple of days before the cup started and asked the flight attendant to have a contest for them on the flight. somebody got lucky, that's for sure.

the wales-south africa game the other day was a good one.

wales really got jobbed. i know it's the rules, so nothing can be done, but losing a key prop and then going down to 14 men (and losing the captain in the process) all in the first 20 minutes is tough going. boy did they show courage, though. and france... shaky, shaky. and they lost to tonga as well. they need to pick up their game big time.

the aus-nz game is the real championship. that will be a great match.
