Its a World website and a World game!

Okay! I know this isn't yer usual post, but why must it always be, why can't we divert a little, especially when whatever the outcome for most of us we'll have fun and enjoyment.

In a little over 9 hours the Rugby World Cup Final kicks off here in UK. It is between a couple of great rugby nations a nd therefore it will be quite a spectacular. So, whether a fan, or not, whether you understand the rules, or not, it is a game the whole Family can enjoy.

So, as they say in the old country, "Pob lwc" (good luck) to both Australia & New Zealand, have a great game, there's lovely!

Regards,

David

Ps Happy Shamain (Celtic New Year) too or Halloween, if yer that way inclined!

    Thanks David

    We're super excited here in Kiwi land. Alarm set for 4.50 am!. Sure my nerves will be shot by the end of the game, but I can't wait. Go the A.Bs!

      Yep the Kiwi's know how to play rugby and you're right it is more than a sport. It is culturally deep rooted and part of who they are. My team Cymru (Wales) have something similar, but I'm afraid not quite as deep. With rugby it matters not who wins or loses it is how the game is played and at the end of the game everyone has had a great time, more Family orientated than soccer for example and safer as a supporter. More grown up!

      Glad to hear you are ok!

      Regards,

      David

      Yeah it does get quite fanatical but I guess any well supported sport is like that! I watched a rugby game at eden park in Auckland where Wales were playing and they sang in the crowd it was quite something! Glad you are doing well too champ!
