    I hate Rugby Union, but I'll probably watch if we play the poms to enjoy seeing them get beaten.

    to be honest, we'll be lucky to get past the quarters the way we're playing recently...

    I watched a new game the other night on Setna, they do a lot of overseas coverage of sports, including rugby. Gaelic football......looked just like Austrailian rules football, but they played it with a round ball, about half the size of a soccer ball. How new is this sport? Thanks for the info on the rugby times.

    I don't think it is very new at all.

    What I meant was it was the first time I had ever seen it on TV. Is it "new" in popularity?
