Rugby that is!

Anyone following? Who are you supporting and why? Where are you watching?

Me:
Wales of course! Heritage (last name's Thomas)
Setanta at home. Yeah the delay sucks, but just avoid the results and pretend it's live. Besides, I've watched every Habs game on the PVR this year, except for going to Buffalo for one game.

9 straight on Friday night. France will fall hard!

I wish more people could watch this tournament. Rugby is a great sport.

Of course I want France to win, but I've been very impressed by Wales. Ireland is very tough too.

My favorites for the tournament every year are: France, and whoever plays against England.

I support Italy, though they just aren't on the same level as everyone else

I watched Italy vs Ireland a few weeks back, it was a bordello

Never been a big fan of northern hemisphere rugby. I usually host the rugby watching parties at my house, and it's a mixed group of Aussies and Kiwis in my neck of Japan (you can imagine how much of my stuff gets broken).

But if I gotta choose, I push for my motherland, Scotland. Was always a Hastings fan.

they have the NHL on setanta

national hurling league

they also had a halftime show that looked like it was the super bowl for a league they called the NFL about 2 weeks ago.

France with all of their high school players for this match?! It's over, the fat lady has five croissants stuffed in her face already getting ready to sing!!!

Grand Slam two years running!

I'll watch the Wales France match, then the Habs Flyers on Friday night. Not that I like Wales more than the Habs, it's not even close; Habs forever!! But 6N is only once a year.

Hurling is mental! I love it!

It's painfully obvious the Irish drink more than anyone in the UK...

I've been watching the recorded games on the weekends at my team's clubhouse. As for who I'm rooting for: Ireland all the way.

The Wales / France game is on at 8pm tonight here so should be on at a reasonable time over there to watch it. Missed the first two weekends of the tournament as I was in Florida on holidays and couldn't find anywhere showing the games.

Rugby is the national sport here in Wales and Cardiff is always crazy on international days, especially when we beat the English.

I was rooting for England only because of Wilkinson.
As long as France lose, I'm happy.
