Is there a way to watch online?
I enjoy watching rugby, though I don't completely know the rules.

It looks like NBC will have coverage of the event here in the states for the first time ever. NBC has been putting on college championships the past few years and is pretty much the only channel that has any rugby coverage. Unfortunately I recently canceled my cable and my current antenna isn't powerful enough to pick up NBC...

the Eagles (the nickname of the american Rugby team) were defeated 22-10 by the Irish in a very entertaining game...
Australia, Russia and Italy are in the same pool so i guess that we will have to play both those teams sooner or later.

cheers and i hope you are enjoying the world cup as much as i am.

if Aussies play like they did against Italy in the first half the Irish will have a party and game will be over by halftime...

they were woeful in the first half :(
its shaping up to be a cracker game

tonight the Eagles play the Bears (national team from Russia) .... it should be an entertaining game and it should give USA a win under their belt :)

cheers and good luck

Tommy, the head to head betting market is aus 1.16 vs ireland 5.10 ..... this will surely shorten up to around the 1.75 vs 4.0 but this is the odds in australia and i think they are very biased... wallabies are still favourites but i think 1.16 is unrealistic.

argentina 1.06 vs romania 8.0 is a sure thing.... money in the bank :)

cheers :)

Tommy i think this tournament will restore confidence for Ireland..... no matter how they play they will cruise to second spot in their group and then South Africa has had trouble in their preparations .... Ireland would meet first team in pool D (which we all know will be south africa or wales) .... they have a chance if they improve game to game.... also Australia would be missing 2 or 3 important players in Pocock + Digby Ioane (the second best player in the world today IMHO behind Quade Cooper) .... its not all doom and gloom and Ireland will make you proud :)

WOW !!!!! it seems the Irish are unstopable in all kinds of sports this year....

they played magnificently and taught the wallabies a lesson 15-6 and honestly it could have been more.

i almost had 10 heart attacks as i was watching 2 exciting games at the same time.....

Australia now is in all sorts of trouble as they will finish second in their group and that means Wales or SA in quarter finals + host nation NZ in semis..... :( The men in green on the other hand could go very far on the weak side of the draw.... either way its shaping as a NORTHERN vs SOUTHERN hemisphere final no matter what happens from now on.

congratulations.... as i said before the lads would make you proud, i didnt know they would have you dancing irish jigs in your living rooms!!!!!!
