This Rugby world cups is going to be one of the best, with smaller capacity Arenas the crowd will sound huge an like they are right ontop of the players, they'll get behind all the teams.

Good luck to the smaller countries and go Aussies.

Wish I could be back in New Zealand right now, but nonetheless, Go All Blacks!

The All Blacks usually go away by the semi-finals....

everyone's predicting them to win, that's exactly why they won't!

I can feel an immature sig bet coming on. :hockeysmiley:

You'd think so, however, I've moved on from such a meaningless proposition.

Additionally, I hope the Eagles can win at least one group match during the tournament.

Probably going to be very tough for Canada to escape out of Group A with the Hosts, Tonga, France and Japan. They have improved a ton since 2007, so I wouldn't be surprised if they kept it close with everybody but New Zealand and to a lesser extent France.

Anyways Go Ireland!

2 wins should be the goal for Canada. Japan doesnt seem to be as strong as they were last World Cup when we drew them 12-12. Tonga is the sort of side Canada should compare themselves to, and I think with a strong showing we could come out victorious.

Is it being broadcast in the US?

And go USA!

I think between NBC Universal Sports, Versus and NBC, they've got a good chunk of it covered.

EDIT: Oops, not Versus. Here's the schedule: http://www.rugbymag.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1656:nbc-announces-rwc-schedule&catid=82:2011-rugby-world-cup&Itemid=264

24 hours to go! Who's excited?

For those in Australia, Fox Sports 3 will be a dedicated RWC channel for the tournament, playing every game live! Also for those without foxtel or austar, channel 9 is the free-to-air broadcaster.

Does anybody know where I can watch these games in Canada?

I'm fairly new to rugby and i'm really enjoy it. I assumed this would be a sportsnet thing, but they don't have anything on their website.

TSN2 are showing live games. TSN is showing Canada's games live and I also see a few tape-delayed games on schedule.

Sweet.

Why I just assumed TSN wouldn't show these? I don't know.

well, the competition's under way with New Zealand taking out an easy victory over Tonga 41-10. Tonga played pretty well, but the all black's were too good. Looking forward to tomorrow's offerings with Argentina v England being my game to watch
