A reporter recently visited the Samoan team at their hotel for a bit of chit chat and to end off the episode he allowed Alesana Tuilagi to tackle him into the hotel pool. Not sure many other sports reporters would be up to being hit by the big man. Good on you!
One of the many perks of playing Superbru is once you have made your prediction, not only are you able to view the predictions of your fellow pool players, but you can see the overall predictions of all the players playing in the tournament. Viewing the overall predictions of everyone playing in the tournament can [...]
I don’t think its a question anymore, if the All Blacks will be winning the Web Ellis trophy on Sunday but by how far. Many will point at the unpredictability of the French and their history against the All Blacks in World Cup knockout games but I think even a 150% performance by this French [...]
Thus the rugby world cup is drawing to to a close. As I am posting this, Australia is challenging Wales for the soon-to-be-forgotten title of Third at the cup. That’s worse than saying “from all who lost, I was the first”. This will be remembered as a slick, entertaining and mostly incident free world cup [...]
I found this clip on Rugbydump showing Richie McCaw stealing a ball from one of the Australians. For those of you who watched the game last weekend will know immediately what steal I’m talking about. Richie McCaw can now be referred to as Super Richie McCaw!
I am as upset about a terrible ref as anyone else, and it’s got to be said that Bryce Lawrence got the whole country united. United in hating him. Let’s not dwell too much on what he did wrong (long list…) or right (very short list). The most enjoyable part is the love being shown [...]
Last week we got really excited with the start of the quarter final stage at this year’s Rugby World Cup in New Zealand. South Africa was up against Australia and sadly we saw a result that broke the hearts of about 50 million South Africans. (This month’s census could verify that number.) The Springboks dominated [...]
So the pool stages of the Rugby World Cup are officially over and the real competition can start now. The minnow sides had their time to shine but sadly it was all for nothing with the top eight sides on the World rankings managing to either fly or scrape their way to the business end [...]
In what must be the biggest casualty of the Rugby World Cup 2011 thus far, Dan Carter has been ruled out of the rest of the tournament. The All Black talisman was today ruled out due to a severe groin injury that was described as a “freak” injury with Carter not having any previous groin [...]
If you had a chance to have a look at the complete schedule for the World Cup you would’ve have noticed that the All Blacks aren’t taking any chances on where they will be playing their matches. They have made absolutely 100% sure that they play at their favorite venue, Eden Park in Auckland, as [...]
