Dancin_In_Anson: First a word from Jedi.


That's funny. Too bad none of the channels I get (or can get) offer rugby here in the US. I has a sad.

I was gonna say to try here, but even that one is showing up as a blank for games.

Have one of these games in the US.

First game will be around 7 am central. You should be able to catch it on first row.

Oh how I wish!

I believe the first game (NZ v OZ) will be on at 5am central. SA v Arg will be at 10am central.

Argentina is in the Triwizard tournament?

Yep!

Adding Argentina to the try nations will do them and rugby in general good. Like Italy when they were added to the five nations I expect them to be last for a few years but then they will start getting close. Plus it's always fun watching the Ozzievscrum get a real pasting

FTA:

Australia Odds: The Tri-Nations champions are second favourites to take the title with odds of 4/1 on offer.

Seth Efrica Odds: They are third favourites to take the title with bet365 offering odds of 10/3 on them to triumph.


Farking betting odds, how do they work?

It'll be interesting to see what kind of crowds Argentina get at home. It's a tough ask for them to start winning soon, but within a few years I can see them performing better than Italy does in the Six Nations.

FTFY

Also, if you have DirecTV and/or have a bar in the area that has DirecTV, you're in luck! Channel 490 on Directv to watch the matches! Too bad they're on at times the bars are normally closed, with the exception of Argentina's home matches

3-0 Wallabies already, penalty right in front of the posts

Nek Minnit

10-3 All Blacks

EPL kicks off in 3.5 hours. Happy day

The All Blacks look sharp and dominating while the Ozzies look disjointed and mistake prone. Its like Carry on Rugby for the Ozzies at the moment.

I have Dish. No such luck.

Just got back from my morning walk. Looks like it was a good half.

Wallabies played very very sloppy and were lucky to get a try in before the break. Otherwise, they'd be 18-3 down at half and a mountain to climb

I would have been more impressed had Carter hit the shot from 51 but that will do.
 
2012-08-18 07:36:57 AM  
The Blackness seems to be having trouble putting a bullet in this game.
 
2012-08-18 07:42:32 AM  
Anyone see the ballboy stack it over the fence behind the posts during the 21 point conversion?

FINALLY a rugby thread! I didn't read the comments as I have DVR'd the games played today. Y'all that have DirecTV have not only this Rugby Championship series, but the just completed ~20 week Super Rugby (15 clubs from RSA, AUS, & NZ) on channels 490 & 491 (in HD)). The latter starts just after our NFL season and just ended two weeks ago --- a perfect salve for us with butthurt from lack of football.

Really looking forward to watching every one of these games. Will be interesting to see how well the Argys can hang with the big guys from the Southern Hempisphere.
 
2012-08-18 07:51:27 AM  
Good finish! See y'all in a few hours for SA/Argentina!
 
2012-08-18 11:16:50 AM  
I can't get a good stream for this game.
 
2012-08-18 11:20:58 AM  
DAMMINT ARGENTINA..... I had hopes for you...
 
2012-08-18 11:33:08 AM  
Yep. This one looks like is over before the first half.
 
2012-08-18 11:35:58 AM  
They need to stop with the silly infringements......

I am starting to hate uverse, we have like 3 channels that show soccer but the ones who show rugby are greyed out, farking take away one of the soccer ones and give us rugby dammit!

Rugby is the most fun to watch and I'm sure if they were to show it more in the summer or football off season they would get decent ratings.
