World Cup Rugby

  1. OK who is interested in it

    Needless to say we Aussies are - l am going to watch it on TV mainly - My family are going to the Docklands Stadium in Melbourne on the 21st of June to watch the Wallabies Vs England

    (I wont be up to going by then - so will go out to a very quiet dinner with a friend- who has no interest in Rugby) PS my original interest in Rugby was only cause l married into it - then l noticed all these cute bottoms in the scrums !!

    So any way though l would see if any one would like to talk about the up coming world cup - cant say that at the moment we would be favourits - think that the NZ's may be though.

    Any thoughts out there

    Ireland beat both the All Blacks and the Wallabies last year. I suspect the Wallabies will win this time but don't rule out the English.

    Renerain - a few years ago a young US Rugby team came out on a tour of Aus- they played games in the major cities and some of the rural towns ie ours - we were asked to if we could put them up for a few days - they were both real sweeties and it was great to see these young boys so enthusiastic about rugby - Dont think they have made the final this year - but they will be there in the years to come - l gather it is becoming quite popular in some of the collages over there now - Beside which in Rugby as in Aussie rules they dont wear all that protective gear that your gridiron players wear - so when they do a scrum - the view can be very nice - that is if you are into 'cute backsides'

    Aanyway back to the important issue - keep talking Rugby
