Kia Ora rugby fans! While the ABs have been tear assing around the Southern Hemisphere leaving a wake of destruction in their path, I don't see the Boks rolling over and playing dead today. Game time in 10am central.

For those of you in America that aren't sure about the game...here's a little primer.

Good thing Goosen's toe seems to be off kilter a bit.

It would be nice if there were rugby channels where there are soccer channels in uverse, christ really? 4 stations with soccer yet I have to pay for a sports package to get the rugby stations which void any discounts I have? F+ck you assholes.

Yeah its in uverse but I have to switch plans and would end up costing me over $100 once I lose discounts so fark them.

The only way I've been able to watch rugby recently is first row or through torrents. I'd love to be able to watch it in a bar or something instead of on my computer screen.

I work for them in tech support. I don't even know why there's a sports package, most of the sports channels are in 200, 300, or the HD premium tier.

It popularized by rugbyjock. He's a huge fan and he shared many images of intense plays.

Well I think we have all the channels except since we get a discount we can't upgrade to the package without getting a huge fee so its not worth it. They don't even allow us to have redzone farking assholes, but then att has been stupid for a while, they seem to think people give a shiat about landlines when people under 30 have probably never had a landline. Just pissed I can't watch shiat I want to watch, it seems I will have to go back to Europe to watch rugby.

If you have the HD package its 7 bucks a month for HD premium tier which has redzone. I don't know who you spoke to that said you cant upgrade to that. The only thing I know of is they phased out any package that doesnt have a DVR unless you already (didn't) have it.

No its if we try to upgrade we lose the discounts, getting an employee discount and it will change to full price I think.

I hear the game echoing tonight.
But she hears only whistles of some consternation
Should be ending 12:30 tonight
The fan wings reflect the stars that bide me to exclamation
I stopped a beer vendor along the way
Hoping to find some not so old pretzels or ancient bottles.
He turned to me as if to say, Here ya go boy, its right there waiting for you.

Its gonna take a lot to score on blacks from you
There's nothing that a team of men could ever do.
I bless the reigns down in Africa
Gonna take some time to defeat those NZ Kings you'll never do...

Well played, All Blacks.

Now the only things between the best rugby team in the world and equaling the record number of successive international wins are Italy and Scotland. They'll play them in November.

Then the ABs'll need to beat Wales to better the record, and England to secure it for the foreseeable future.

At the moment, the country with the most number of international wins is Lithuania, with 18.

Lithuania you say?
While Australia can only manage 10.
By god (and by maths) that means Lithuania is the world's best rugby nation!

And I was worried when the Wobblies had to play the Argies. I hope we never have to play Lithuania we won't stand a chance.

/wonder if I can sort out a rugby trip
//get my club side to Lithuania
///wear green and gold
