I do but it's pretty much boring at least till the semis and the only surprises that can happen is the Wallabies beating NZ and maybe France upsetting everyone.

I was impressed during the end of the second half how the US was doing. They really were holding up and giving a England quite a run.

I just wish rugby was bigger in America, I'd take it over football anyday.

If you made it to the later stages your nation would be hooked immediately.
Like what happened to Australia after the real World Cup.

Eh, it just seems like the US has to much pride in its sports, football, basketball, baseball. You ask majority of major sports fans they will say they dislike soccer (from my experince and many others), and soccer is the worlds largest sport.

If it got more publicity I could see it becoming larger, but they rarely show rugby unless its the world cup, and even then its a few days after the match is already taken place, and its only a select few.

The US has a really rough start against Tonga, and ended up get long possessions at times, but they kept having so many mistakes at cruical times. It was really sad. 2 of Tongas tries were because they just totaly let them slip through. When they would get close to the trie line they would just start to make stupid passing mistakes.

Was a good game to watch though

About to start, I'll be watching.
Parramatta beat the Bulldogs, Australia beat England in the twenty20, hopefully three from three tonight.

I personally don't know how you don't get into watching rugby. Theres always something going on, and who doesn't like to watch some heavy hitting.

Any game that focuses on keeping play going and protecting the more attacking team makes for good viewing. The hits are huge, but the skills are amazing.
Most of the athletes are very well educated, it's a private school mentality in Australian Rugby. Berrick Barnes did very well stepping in for Stephen Larkam.

Rugby in the US is more popular than you'd think. There are a lot of clubs. Almost every college has a club, and a lot of high schools too. If you're not in college they have private clubs. I have a lot of friends that play. I've always wanted to play, but just been too busy with other shit.
