Just gonna open this up for a discussion on the rugby World Cup going on in France.It started at the beginning of September kind of surprised no one else’s started a discussion on it. In my opinion, the best game has been between Wales and Fiji last weekend. If you have a chance to see it, I recommend you watch it goes down to the last few seconds of the game I know B.C. has a large rugby community so hopefully we get some good discussion about the game going forward, and maybe in the future we’ll see Canada there .

 

I believe most games are carried on TSN and on different apps as well as dazn. 
 

Today’s games are Scotland and Tonga and then at noon is Wales Australia

Friday, September 29 at noon Pacific time is the next most significant game in the World Cup in my opinion, with New Zealand’s opening lost to South Africa. This game will decide whether New Zealand makes it through to the next round or not. Italy is sitting above them in the pool., so if New Zealand hopes to pass through to the next round they need to win Italy is big strong and could upset them. Yes, the odds are against that happening but that’s why you play the game.

italy wasn't up to the task tonight.. i was looking forward to a strong showing of them, just to rub it under nose of one of my best friends who's rooting for the all blacks..

that’s to bad I’m going to watch the game later tonight. I figured it would be hard-pressed to win this game the AB  having their backs against the wall I couldn’t see them losing.

hope you'll have some cold drinks to watch it. NZ showed what they're capable of, but the azzuri wasn't a great competition tonight.

 

this was the last game for me for the next couple of weeks, heading of to indonesia tomorrow..

 

i hope scotland will win vs ireland .. 🙃

Last game of the day was a good one to watch. It was Fiji and Portugal Portugal finally won its first ever World Cup match Fiji however, stayed within seven points and is going to advance into the next round talkabout backing your way in,and it was a good game despite a lot of sloppiness

Tough day for the AB, but they, really, beat themselves.  Penalties, turn overs and some bad decisions cost them.  Sure tye officials weren't great, but they simply made too many unforced errors.

 

Classic SA game though........they are a tough line to get anything going against.

what a battle, what a drama.. it wasn't the prettiest to watch, i guess not many expected it to be, but it definitely wasn't boring.

 

the AB had their chances but couldn't convert.

 

the springboks played to their strengths, they're so relentless and just find a way to win. Du Toit was a beast with his 28 tackles.
