Loving all the games so far!

I haven't missed a single game in the last two WC, so hopefully see all of them this time too.

Predicting a NZ/SA final, with SA to win.

I used to love the Irish, but have been treated extremely badly by quite a few this year. Have no time for any Irish now.

Tonga is doing so well.

The offside is not being policed very well,I hate that because some teams use it to great advantage.

Hodge being cited is interesting.
I've seen a couple of worse incidents with no action.
Consistency would mean a few depleted teams.

Ireland's an interesting team as they have players from the North and the Republic, they don't sing a national anthem because of this.

The dude I nearly hitched was from the North, where I spent a lot of my working holiday. East Belfast, protestant territory. Learned a lot living there in the midst of the troubles.

I love Ireland's Call.
I'm disappointed when they play the anthem.

Not having a singer performing the anthems is not good.

Yeah they can't exactly ask the south to sing God save the Queen and vice versa!

I hate the way they are doing the anthem, it isn't the best without a singer..

Watching Wales and Georgia.   What a gutsy performance by Georgia. They should hold their heads high.


But the announcer is a w*n*er.   Every try by Wales โ€œIS A TRY FOR THE AGES!!!  BEST TRY IN RUGBY HISTORY!!! TRY OF THE SERIES!!!โ€   :rolleyes:

DH is ready to throw the remote at him - seriously ruining the experience

I know! They kick the ball, run and score it. Not exactly best try in Welsh rugby....

Georgia played so well, shame the scoreline didn't reflect the closeness of the game. Some great games so far and good to see the minnows aren't easybeats like they have been in some world cups. I remember in 95 when the ABs beat Japan 145 - 0...

I didn't watch tonight. Was busy in my Facebook group and watching the Masked singer. Don't judge me...

Might watch some Samoa and Russia tomorrow night but Beverley Hills 90210 reboot is on and my 90's 20 something self is being released..๐Ÿ˜Ž

Fabulous game today Uruguay v Fiji!!!

Looking forward to Wales taking on Australia on Sunday!

Samoa and Russia were awesome last night as well!

I'm watching every game. Why not!

I've decided South Africa are my second team now as the Irish can't stop whining about the Haka and the Springboks fans are fun. Met a few the other day. Plus a few of my friends in Nz are South African so hoping they go far so we can watch together when I get there!

Yeah it was good. Gutted for Fiji though. They were denied at least 5 of their best players for this tournament as their clubs wouldn't release them.

I was surprised by Uruguay but impressed by their passion.  If it were soccer (football ) it wouldn't have been a surprise.  That's the beauty, surprises!

Sorry for Fiji though. ..

Ireland unhappy with the Ref.

The Boks? They love me ๐Ÿ˜‰ I wish I was in Nz with my SA friends and we could watch together...alas I'm a few weeks away from that, instead I'm watching at the pub with some dude I said yes to a few rugby matches a few weeks ago...
