Hoping the northern hemisphere teams put up a better effort this time.

England have no chance though obviously.

I'm hoping Ireland can do better than the QF's 4 years ago, oh same with Scotland too.

Will try and watch this whenever I can but with work and the early kick offs due to time difference, well, it's going to be difficult. Is there a highlights package on?

So many teams this year have the potential to win this. NZ and Sth. Africa are the favourites as far as I'm concerned then England if they turn up. And there's still a bunch of other teams that could win it as well, though Australia, Wales, Scotland, Ireland have to be alot more consistent than they usually are.

Hopefully the Scots can get some revenge for last time after they were robbed of a semi.

I thought you hated Rugby? :lol I guess living in New Zealand it's impossible to escape?

I've caught three matches so far, haven't been able to watch any in entirety since they were while I'm working. You'd think being in China would be a perfect timezone... But since I work at night and day during the weekends not so much :lol


Japan vs Russia caught the end. My Ukrainian friend hates Russia and I have a soft spot for Japan so was Japan all the way.

Fuji vs Australia. Watched the beginning during my lunch break, then had a meeting and caught the end. Was hoping for Fuji to get an upset... So a little disappointed but those bastards are tough!

Obviously had to catch Boks vs All Blacks watched the beginning before my class to teach. When I had to work they were 3 all. Got back at 65min. Disappointed with the score but was still hopeful South Africa could come back.... But it was what it was. Good bloody game from what I watched though. Hopefully they can meet again in the final and SA returns the favour ;)

Some fantastic Rugby to start the tournament off so far. The only downer is the refereeing was pretty horrific across all three games today.

Well...living in New Zealand but not liking Rugby seems odd. Its part of the NZ "Identity" so of course it'll be everywhere. Its a tiny Nation of 4 million people outplaying the rest of the World in a Global Sport, it'll be everywhere.

LOL, what? Just cos I live in NZ means I have to like rugby? What a weird, cultish way of thinking :lol

I do hate it, but I can still have countries in it to support haha. And yeah it's impossible to escape, they tie basically everything in the world to rugby, every second ad on TV is rugby themed right now lol.

Just saying Rugby is part of the national identity, complaining about it being overexposed in NZ is silly, what do you expect. Its the one sport we're the Elite at. Of course it'll be everywhere.
