Except for Ireland, all countries I like really suck in rugby. Israel is 3rd bottom in the world, Norway only slightly above that, I believe Iceland and Turkey don't even have a rugby national team. In Turkey there are only 2 or 3 clubs and most players are expats...

For me as an autist, rugby would be the hardest possible sport to play. Contact sports are difficult as it is with the hypersensitivity issues and disliking to be touched, rugby would be almost impossible to play. I guess I will need to stick to cricket, which however is rather boring when watching it for more than half an hour :| I do love watching rugby though, I really grew into it when I lived in Ireland. Rugby fans are the greatest, they are noisy and coloursful but without any trace of verbal or physical violence. If only football (soccer) fans were like that...

The names of the teams in those 5-a-side-leagues are also brilliant usually :lol:

Anyone familiar with Over-the-Line tournaments, or is it just a So Cal thing? A drunk fest of hillarious (and mostly vulger) named teams playing a very distored version of baseball/cricket.

That's a shame then. They really didn't play well tonight at all. I want Spain to win, for the players, NOT the racist Aragones.

Oh well, I don't like the spaniards. I want Germany to win, because they won against Portugal, NOT for Hitler.
