some correction on Rugby League..you are forgetting that it is pretty popular also in NZ...

They are actually the defending champs...they have some great players...

But Australia is going to beat the US this weekend by a minimum of 50 unless they are playing nice or very hungover


As for Union...I am actually at Dulles waiting to board my flight to Dublin..going to the games this weekend between Ireland-Australia and next weeks game versus the All Blacks... C'mon Ireland

Yes, one team, but that has nothing to do with NZ...all Australia based media control...

They tried to get a team in Wellington, which would have only increased rugby league in NZ

And yes, union, is much more popular, but to say it is not popular is false...especially in Auckland...

I never said it wasn't popular in NZ just no where near as popular as Union. My only point is that League doesn't have the International game on the level of Union.

That said the quarter finals of the League World Cup should be very fun to watch with the Big 3 and the Americans playing the wildcard.

I'm a fan of League I follow the NRL throughout the season and love the big matches like Origin and the Grand Final. I caught the World Club Challenge this past year too and even though pre season a good match.

sorry...I get a little defensive about the NZ rugby league as I know some of the guys and tend to cheer for them...

That being said, I hate the All Blacks with a passion...

They're fun to watch but can also be boring in the sense that they always win.
