Who'll win the Guineess Premiership?
Who'll win the Heineken? (If your team's in the UEFA cup equivalent, tough luck!)
Who'll win the next Super 14?
Who'll win the Autumn Int'ls?

Basically, everything you wanna discuss.

COME ON YOU WASPS!!!!!!!



It's one sport I have never got into. It just seems to stop every two minutes!

I prefer league. Used to have a season ticket for years before I had the kids.....TIGERS :D

It is a hard game to get into because there are so many rules that can hold the game up a bit , but once you get to grips with it all it is a brilliant sport, very tactical and when played well as exciting as any game played.

Danny's been put in his place by Josh, the team's lost 5 of 6, and it's the start of the Heineken Cup this weekend. All is well at Hollywood Wasps...
Watch out Castres! You're gonna get knocked da **** out! Like Danny did with Josh!!!

Wicked game between Tigers vs Ospreys yesterday.

Leicester were without their 1st choice Centres whilst Ospreys were handicapped by the loss of the Jones' boys at Prop.

What a wonderful game of rugby so it was.

Except England since they beat the Argies convincingly. But you have to bear in mind that all these squads are mainly made up of fringe players due to the British Lions tour (aside of Scotland, but they always were rubbish! :P )

Not sure how you could come to that conclusion. British teams have only played one real fixture apiece since the end of the Six Nations. An under strength England side beat an equally weak Argentina side. Meanwhile Wales took on Japan with a unrecognisable side really, two of their squad having never played a regional game! Ireland done well to overcome the US and Scotland had 20+ players missing for their fixture!

Add to that the JWC is on and the pool to select from is even smaller for the countries too!

So they show at least 1 or 2 games per week over here in the states. I'm starting to really enjoy watching it now. So I guess it's time to pick a team. Should I pick Saracens since they seem so close to Arsenal? Reading about their history right now.

I don't have a choice on what I watch, can only watch what they play over here.
