If Australia wins, believe me the level of coverage will be back to the usual levels. It's like the Cricket World Cup; the moment Australia fades, Melbourne stops caring about anything that isn't AFL.

Surprised Ireland didn't wallop the USA. 22-10, seriously? I expected 52-10.

Going to laugh heartily if Russia beats the Yanks by more than the Irish did! GO GLORIOUS MOTHERLAND OF BEAR AND VODKA!

Khan, I'm surprised you didn't drive down to New Plymouth for the US's two games there. The drive via State Highway 43 comes highly recommended too.

Need to try harder! This is your sports calling, Vlad. Return to Minsk, become captain, and lead your country to World Cup glory!

Hmm. You make a good point. Introduce both and lead Belarus to simultaneous AFL and rugby glory?

Oh man, Wales lost to South Africa by just ONE point. 17-16. Wish they'd won.

We must not let this distract us from our main goal.
Racial equality?
Rugby tours. We must continue to have rugby tours.

Is Canada in the tournament? I don't see them listed.
