Rugby World Cup

Well, the day has come for the start of the  Rugby World Cup.  Last night on Close Up, our current affairs programme, we saw a contingent of French Supporters who were hiring a fleet of camper vans to follow the French team around.

We also saw and heard the choir that will sing all the anthems and they were singing what was described as one of the more difficult ones - the WELSH anthem.

We will watch the opening ceremony and I will follow some of the games (or results anyway).  One of my cousins has said that he expects me to be supporting Wales!  I tend to sway between  New Zealand and Wales.

There are two games here in Whangarei but I am not sure which teams are playing which shows how much I follow Rugby.


  1. I'm supporting England, Wales, and France. More chance that way, although I quite expect the All Blacks will win.

  2. I totally understand. I watch these sporting events because Hubby is or I think I should be interested so I know what other people are talking about. I usually have just enough information to join in a conversation, but really, I don't care.

    Hope one of your teams wins.

  3. I'm doing my best to ignore the whole thing.

  4. Hello Sue. Glad you're enjoying the rugby.
    'Fraid I'm not very sporty either like Arleen.
    We have the 'Tour of Britain' cycle race passing through Welshpool next Wednesday.

  5. Molly, no I am not into sport either but do try just to keep an eye on who is winning and one can't help but notice it is on in New Zealand at present.
