2) Are any of y'all planning on going to England next year? I am, but I can't decide if should go for pool play and watch the US get destroyed (cheaper tickets) or try to wait till post pool play and try to catch the final (much more expensive)


Oh yes...booking an apartment in London for the month.


My proposed schedule:

9/19 - Ireland - Canada in Cardiff
9/20 - US- Samoa in Brighton
9/27 - Scotland - US - Elland Road (should be great atmosphere)
10/4 - Ireland - Italy - Olympic Stadium
10/7 - South Africa - US - olympic stadium
10/11 - Ireland - France - Cardiff

Will try and do a QF but most likely Ireland would get NZ and I do not know if I can watch that

Watching the NOLA vs Life game. Halftime Life up 17-0 but the score is misleading cause NOLA is putting up a stout defense with some really nice hard hits and tackles. Life is just scoring on a couple breakaway runs from their flyhalf who's really fast. He scored a try and set up another one. Turnovers are really hurting NOLA at the moment a few ball handling errors when they've gotten into the Life half.

Well Life's gonna go on to win here but great effort from NOLA they really fought hard and tough the whole match. I gotta think getting to play against a team like Life is only gonna pay off down the road.

Announcers talked about how NOLA has grown the club with local guys and the LSU connection and how they've moved up from DIII to DII to playing in the DI championship today. Future looks bright for NOLA and Rugby in Louisiana!

Some good matches this weekend.

Premiership Final was really good, went into overtime and was won on the final play. Northampton are this seasons premiers.

Toulon pulled off the double winning the H-Cup and the Top 14 in the same season Johnny Wilkinson retires on a high note.

Leinster won the Pro 12 again and Brian O'Driscoll retires.


In Super Rugby Crusaders topped the Force, Chiefs continue to struggle losing at home to the Waratahs inching closer to top of the Sharks who went down at home to the Stormers on a last second game winning drop goal.



International Rugby Tours kick off this weekend!

wish we were playing Rice instead of Life

Looks like pretty legit crowd at Finns watching us play

AJ MacGinty is the next USA Eagle flyhalf once he's eligible. Dude is legit.

Vs Rice. Oops. Guess I had baseball on my mind. Funny story back in 2009 LSU set the D1 College record for largest shutout against Rice. 117-0.

Yeah he's poised to take over from McCaw as All Black Captain once he hangs it up.
