    Whaddya mean - like American Football! I watched the end of a game somewhere in Buffalo the other night where the losing coach called for a time-out 1 second before the eventual winners kicker got a brilliant field goal - farcical rule which meant it had to be done again. Couldn't believe it - and nor could the commentators.

    Well, the rules may be different, but the principles of the sport remain the same. Take a wierd shaped ball, pass and run, get over the line, kick it between the posts.

    However, Rugby is superior because its players don't feel the need to wear armour, a real mans game (just because i dont like it doesn't mean i don't admire it)

    You may be right, but perhaps Argentina need it more - and I think deserve it too.

    Well there we are. The Boks did all the right things to win and deserved it - a dour game.
    The best games of all had to be Argentina against France (twice!) and in the semi the Argybargys were just brilliant. Watch them next time - and now they have the perfect right to demand a place in the European nations competition - I know but they all train in Spain under ex Tigers man Les Cusworth.
    Is that it until the next time? Will we all still b here? Will rugby eclipse football (soccer to you lot across the pond) as the world's favourite game?
    Who knows - so many questions and so many imponderables......

    Yeah, very interesting world cup to say the least, I was very impressed with the performance of the argentines. Unfortunaltey South Africa won in the final, but they were the lesser of two evils.
    cheers
