Sally you disappoint me !! Of course it is Union , Quins v Sarries , should be a bloodbath . hehehe  . League was on TV earlier today , switched over to watch the REAL rugby when match started .

The game has changed a lot since I played , even lycra undershorts used to be frowned on , but still much better than watching tedious football . Not even going to mention american football , tedious , boring , rubbish . 4 hours to play a 1 hour game ??

Bandi , get set warmed up and prepare to enjoy !!

I'm not sure how much I comprehended but I was certainly entertained. @kev I agree about American "football". Besides having the most perplexing name of any sport, it also seems to be created entirely around the idea of commercial breaks. I really don't understand how such a major sport can have a completely unfair overtime. Any tie games (in the NFL) are basically decided by a coin toss. That is, of course, only after another 20 minutes of beer commercials.

Hope they show more next weekend, but I guess there is always the Internet. Maybe next time I will understand a bit.

They weren't exactly playing against any of the really good international teams though.

You're right there. I think I was saying that there is more rugby in the US than some people might think; but they're not quite up to a Test with the All Blacks

Not many would be up to game with the All Blacks!    Kev I had no idea the Americans knew how to play the game let alone what type. But certainly glad they have something other that American football in their lives.

No great results
