Rugby World Cup Daily - Super Saturday

Really was an awesome day for the underdogs. The only way it could've been better is if they'd won, but still...Romania giving it to Scotland, Argentina coming close against England, and Japan! Man, Japan almost took out France! How cool was that?

Great to see "minor" rugby nations showing what they've got against the top teams.

On a side note, it's strange, compared to how well Argentina seem to be at the game of kicking the round ball, that they have been pretty awful at kicking points in rugby the past few years...hopefully they can someday find a flyhalf who can get those valuable 3 points when it's needed...

Friday Funnies - The Ben Broster chip kick

I do have to admit that I appreciate the guy's effort. Not often you see a prop choose to try a run than just smash his way into the tackle. It's along the lines of the Vickery sidestep. It's good to see the rotund guys trying stuff out like that.

On the flip side, it's also funny on the rare occasion when a back gets called up to get in the scrum - like if there's a loose forward injured and another carded, so they just stick a wing up in there. They just stick their head down push, hoping no one is watching them, fingers crossed they don't mess up.

Except for wingers of course, who traditionally tend to avoid tackling, rucking, and getting their shorts dirty.

Tell that to little Gio Aplon. :)

Rugby World Cup Daily - Doping prevention

rugby will remain a fair sport for the foreseeable future

I agree. It could just be naive hope on my part, because I'm sure that there could be some cheating going on, but on the surface, it seems like players are above that - I always think of rugby as being a sport for men who value hard work about the easy way out.

I love the NFL too, but it's so seedy that it's easy for rugby to keep ahead of it in class. Just the other week, I saw an article where players' unions had lobbied to prevent doping tests before the start of this season.
