In case anyone watches rugby, the Tri Nations game, New Zealand against Australia will be on Setanta sports early Saturday am (2:30 am central time). This is a big match leading into the world cup! (Setanta is 615 on Direct TV)

Rugby's my favorite sport. The All Blacks are my favorite team in any sport, although the Wellington Hurricanes are my club team.

The All Blacks should roll in the Tri-Nations finale. We've been unbeatable at Eden Park and I don't see the Wallabies being able to mount any kind of challenge if we're on form.

I can't believe someone responded who actually like rugby! We were in New Zealand back in 2005, and I developed a deep like for the sport. We were at Jade stadium for the Super 12 (it was only 12 then) championship, the Crusaders and I can't remember who now.

It should be an interesting game since the Aussies beat the All Blacks last go around. This is the decider as well for the Tri Nations cup. After last weeks convincing win against South Africa, I hope the All Blacks are in the groove and get business taken care of!

I love Rugby! Being an Irishman with a thirst for pain, how could I not!

Support Ireland (obviously!), Leinster and the London Irish (mainly cause my sis is a season ticket holder)

You should know the entire world cup schedule is supposed to be covered on Setanta sports, I think like 48 games or so. First game on Sept. 7th! Would love to go to Europe in September and October!

I have dish network - they don't show the games anymore. Fox turned the channel to all socccer (football) now. Now I have an excuse to go to the irish pub down the way now and try to catch it.
We have a big rugby following here in IL in our town. The rugby club here just took first in state this past spring. Their coach was a former trainer for scottish rugby union. And we have a number of Chicago teams.
I got into it in college when I was friends with some of the club members. And have followed it ever since.
