Are any umrats enjoying the Rugby World Cup. Looking forward to our
first real test tomorrow morning against Argentina but they're not as
good as they were at their peak a few years ago. Never to be taken
lightly though, nor France next week.
At least for once we have a major sporting spectacle of FTA TV...
I watched the first matches and enjoyed them but I haven't watched them
recently. There seems to be two good teams in each pool, two not-too-bad
teams (argentina and japan), and the rest of the teams are just filling.
The competition just seems to be be by how much the the good team can
beat the weak team.
I would have watched the Irish-Japan match if I weren't losing in a go
tournament and I intended to watch the south africa v italy match but
forgot. Perhaps just as well, I thought it would be even and interesting
but it wasn't.
England v argentina might be worth watching, I expect Japan to beat
Samoa by a large margin and sunday's, tuesday's, wednesday's and
friday's matches matches will just be to see whether the winning team
gets a bonus point.
Saturday should be interesting.
My ideal would be the four gb teams (or japan) in the semi-finals,
england v ireland in the final, and england win.
