Well, we had to start this some time.

Kicking off very shortly with Australia v Argentina. So far, the opening ceremony hasn't been too bad - the basis for comparison being the opening ceremony for the Olympics in the same stadium three years ago.

Rugby: a bunch of people huddled together to kick each other.


Why can't we all get along and play nicely together? This is the sort of behavior that causes wars! You can give blood without playing rugby! Why, if everyone had their own little plastic cup this wouldn't happen!

So, if you want to increase the world's supply of donated blood and put an end to war, send your donations (no checks!) to me and I'll look into getting a plastic "World's Cup" for each competing player.

Stop the violence, the war, the insanity NOW! Don't hesitate -- send me your donation NOW!!

(And donate often, too. Remember: the more you give, and the more often you give, will mean that war will end sooner and the blood supply will go up more quickly. So give early and give often.)

Two ways of looking at it - Rugby League is a gentlemen's game played by thugs, and Rugby Union is a thugs' game played by gentlemen

or

In Rugby Union you kick the ball.
In Rugby League you kick the man if you cannot kick the ball.
In Soccer you kick the ball if you cannot kick the man.

Just home from watching France beat Fiji, which was a crying shame. Fiji had a chance for about 50 minutes, but their defence became a bit fragile.

South Africa are currently racking up a point a minute against Uruguay in Perth.

Sian: I will be getting up around 3 to catch the Wales-Canada game at a friend's house at 4.00 a.m. I'm not sure who to cheer for either, but I think I'll wear my Welsh jersey. It would be great for Canada to win, but Wales has had the season from hell this year, and it's about time for something good to happen. By the way, there was a woman called Sian who used to sell arts & crafts in Ontario. I think I met her at the Welsh Pavilion at the Toronto International Caravan. Would that be you by any chance?

Just a note on the handicap betting, in a brilliant game of Rugby League between Leeds and Wigan, Wigan were giving Leeds two points.
The final score was a win for Wigan by 23 to 22, of course, I gambled on Wigan and the bloody bookie won again.
It is amazing how often the genius that lays the odds for the bookies gets it right.
Lost again , New Zealand giving Italy 64 points in the World cup won 70 to 7, how do they do it?.
England or New Zealand for the Trophy, its a hard one to call, two class teams. Ard Mhacha.

I am going to miss this afternoon's match on TV due to a craft fair at Leeds. (And I have more of the same next weekend too). Nevertheless I will be wearing an England shirt, and taking my walkman for Radio 5 coverage from 1pm. Somehow I don't think I'll be able to persuade the organiser to put the radio on instead of the easy listening music we normally have!

It got very hot in the room yesterday, and I'm desperately trying to find my T shirt which has another version of the aforementioned quotation: "Rugby - a game for ruffians, enjoyed by gentlemen" printed on the front, so that I have an alternative. I did toy with the idea of getting a T shirt from the Nike shop in York which said "Fancy a Ruck?" but at my age...

Beardy - Rugby School was always thought to have only become "progressive" after Dr Arnold (Tom Brown's Scooldays) became headmaster in 1828. Perhaps the foundations were already there though, because it was some years earlier that a little squirt called William Webb Ellis picked up the ball and ran with it. Instead of being called a cheat and getting kicked out of the game, given detention etc, he got hailed as the creator of a new sport.

Perhaps british sport could learn from this. Instead of getting beaten at most things, perhaps we should carefully peruse the rules of each game and try and find loopholes - ie things which aren't actually proscribed as foul play and capitalise on them !

Ard, you've got a 'pewter so you shouldn't be going near the bookies. Tune into betfair.com where you can set your own price (someone will take it) and the odds overall are about 20 per cent better than any bookie. Bet early, lay off at a better price amd you don't need to worry about who wins the event itself.

The IRB announced that the Australians could not have Waltzing Matilda as part of the pre-match goings on. Stopping the singing of it might be a greater challenge.

At the same time, I'll be surprised if a set of pipes (or two) don't turn up in crowd somewhere when Scotland are playing.

For some reason Twickenham always has had a sort-of mythical "something" to me. Many moons ago, the father of a former girlfriend (British & played Lock for his local club when he was younger) waxed poetic about watching matches at Twickenham when I first met him- he was intrigued that a Yank played rugby & he & I both were dipping rather heavily into the grog ration that afternoon.

It has been a constant source of frustration for me that the US can't put a decent side together... we have flashes of brilliance, and then... well...
Most of our "athletes" are playing sports that pay big $$$ and most Yanks don't even see a rugby ball until they hit college. Other countries have youth programs, etc & have been playing for most of their lives when they get into serious competitive-level rugby. That's why our basketball teams have been unstoppable- these guys are weaned on the stuff.
How about the NZ/Canada match? Canada looked good through most of the 1st half & then the the Kiwis put it to 'em. I turned it off at the half.
