    The preparation has started, test match has starter, it's the world cup in a month.

    So what's your opinion about what you see, what you think about the different team ?

    (Didn't see any thread about it, but if there is one this one could be deleted).

    I didn't even realize it was coming up. All I remember in the last one was only the US games got broadcasted here and the final. I couldn't find any of the other games on TV.

    Hope that will become more popular in US, since it's really a great sport. Maybe with the 7 during the next Olympics that will increase the popularity of rugby.

    During the Final, we (french) have been fucked.... by the referer...

    I'm a huge fan of the Six Nations every February but for whatever reason take less interest in the WC. Weird, I know. At any rate, I root for Ireland and whoever is playing Inglaterre!

    Love Six Nations too, there is another ambiance.

    I'm sure Ireland will go in 1/4 after that they'll have to play angainst NZ or Argentina, if it's argentina, i'm pretty sure Ireland will win if it's against Black that will be hard but defenitely not impossible.

    Great game of rugby also watched the Tonga V Georgia over the weekend. Have Samoa V USA and AB V Argentina recorded.

    Next up Australia V Fiji and i never thought I would be looking forward to Scotland V Japan.

    Argentina gave us a mighty fright but they still struggle beyond the 60 min mark.

    If Japan play the way they did against SA they will beat most teams in the comp.

    Yes and two yellow cards in the game, looks like the AB will have to change tactics inside the 5 meter zone.

    Pretty much gotta roll away and get dafuq out of the ruck. They're being very strict on it which is good.

    Richie's yellow was terrible though. Could've made a case for a red there. Not sure what he was thinking.

    So if he gets another yellow will that be an automatic suspension?

    Don't think so. Isn't that a soccer rule?

    It is will have to wait and see what happens if and when someone gets 2 yelllow cards. The referring is overtely pedantic with literal interpretation of the laws.

    Never thought I would be looking forward to a Scotland V Japan clash.
