Should be some good rugby tonight although likely no upsets.

Looking forward to the finals - last night's league with the Warriors vs Tigers showed the level of finals intensity we're all waiting to see RWC!

Wow did Fiji play well, I know there was a massive margin, but their ball retention during phases was good. Sorry for them they missed the opportunities, but I wasn't as impressed as the commentators by the Springboks who made a BUNCH of very basic errors. If they play us like that, I'd expect a 30+ point margin.

I was sad for Fiji to only have the score they had.

It's wrong to enjoy Australia getting beaten. Yeah right!

Well now I am seriously pissed with Sky.

First we upgraded to My Sky+ so I had the capacity to record, in HD, every game in the RWC. They installed, but didn't put the HD Ticket on my NEW Decoder and so I have missed 5 games in HD. I called them tonight and they added it, right in the middle of the wallabies game, which terminated the recording, corrupting it and making it unwatchable. I now have 1 missing, 5 in SD. Tomorrow AM someone is getting reaming.

Stupid CSR could have TOLD me adding HD Ticket right then and there was going to cause issues with the current recording. Also they have broken all the series links.

Really enjoying the rugby. It's refreshing to watch different countries play - no matter if they are minnows or world beaters.

I would even rate the games to be more interesting than this year's Tri Nations, dare I say it!

Yeah networkn, Fiji played really well, not reflected in the score though. RSA was good, so a tough game.

Ireland was awesome, fast, smart, and error free. Cooper was useless and error ridden as usual. They say he is great in Super 14 but no good under pressure, he is bad.

They are!   The gaps between Tier 1, Tier 2 and minnows is narrowing. Its good to see the minnows playing well, like Canada. Some of these teams have really nice skills, they don't always look like minnows. I'd like to see more coverage of their own international games in the year, and that some if them get invited to tier 1 events occasionally.

Agreed, I have never enjoyed rugby like this. I can say I have watched every game, and enjoyed all but two (A little boring).

Agreed, how do we get that to happen? Petition Sky?

Particularly interested in watching more of USA/Russia/Canada. I would like to see a new competition started.

Banana?

Good result for Ireland, but is it a good result for the All Blacks?
Assuming IRE beat Italy (not a foregone conclusion) then Australia end up on the other side of the draw and will most likely have to play the Boks in the QFs then the winner of that game will most likely play the ABs in the Semi's. Whoever gets through there will have had some good tough rugby and I am a little worried the ABs will be underdone.

Go Samoa today too!

It is better for New Zealand if things pan out as planned from here.  Rather than having to possibly beat South Africa and Australia to win the RWC it is now highly likely that we will only have to beat one of these teams as South Africa and Australia will meet in the semi final thus eliminating one.
It also means a Northern Hemisphere team - most likely France or England in the final.  Bring on the rugby.
