Default Rugby World Cup

Can't wait for this to start on September 18th on home soil. Should be a cracking tournament.

Would love to see a home nation side win it but Wales have lost two of their best players, England are lacking in confidence, Scotland are poor (sorry, but it's true) so that just leaves Ireland, so come on Ireland.

I might watch some of this. I watched England vs Ireland in the Six Nations I think it was around March time but I find it hard to follow the game. The rules are more complicated than something like tennis.

Remember England winning in 03 and then making the final in 07.

This finally kicks into action tomorrow. England v Fiji is the opener.

Come on, England. One game at a time. Let's get some momentum going, then the confidence will come.

Great tournament so far. Wins for the all the home nations. Pity USA lost. Japan were amazing against South Africa.

Is there a more intimidating sight in world sport than the haka?:



No.

Yeah I'd agree with you, the haka is as ****.

When do England play next?

I was hoping to see a match as there are two at Villa Park but touts have snapped up all the tickets so no chance now. Selling for 100+. It's nice to see tickets making their way into the right hands

England's next match is on Wednesday. But it's a tricky group to be in with both Wales and Australia and I'm not sure we'll progress to the next round. If the Aussies are on form (and they usually are) then I expect them and Wales to go through.

England have been done in the last three World Cups (2014, Women's 2015 and now this) by last minute goals pretty much.

This country's athletes

You expect it every time.

Such an English way to lose

We're out of the tournament already. Haha. Shameful. I think the Aussies will lift the trophy. But I hope it's Wales. Failing that, Ireland.

All four quarter finals were fantastic. So entertaining. I swear I prefer rugby to football sometimes. No diving, no whining, no bullsh*t. Just 30 men, bloodied and bruised, playing with everything they got. Just got punched in the face or had your nose broken? No problem. Love it.
