Starts this Friday in Japan.

Wales look well-set... England should put in a good showing too...

Next Thursday - 26th September - is when England will flatten the U.S.

:D

Forgot this was coming up!

Annoyingly my mates these days are sensibly married with kids, which makes organising a get together to watch these things practically impossible. And watching sports by myself isn't really the same.

I would like this if I could find it.

Most of our sports channels over here are fucking baseball, darts and poker.

Matches are all in the (GMT) a.m. for this World Cup, since the Japanese insist on scheduling the Games during the day, rather than at 2am their time....

So it'd be a challenge organising a piss-up, even with the most immature of friends.

@Mullet:

When we allowed Canada a degree of freedom, did we let you keep watching BBC iPlayer?

'Cos the Beeb will be showing some matches.

:-??

I doubt it.

I'll have a look though as I have many sports channels... it's just frustrating having to wade through all the baseball (who the fuck watches baseball? It's like watching construction workers on their lunch break.)

Next to zero build up, had no idea until the other day.

Mullet, you can get it all (by law certain sporting events have to be free to view here), you just have to make the internet think you are in the UK ;)

You could watch Match Of The Day etc too.

Yeah, I should try that I guess. But there’s also the whole “4 in the fucking morning” issue.

Watch anytime you like dude, just avoid the internet for result. Our coverage is by far the best too, they have actual English and Welsh people in the studio...

In American football you get hit so hard you still get brain trauma even with the helmet on.

Not that I’m a fan or even bother watching it, just saying.

A Rugby scrum is so intense it gives you HIV.

Yes because it's not bare knuckle boxing with the gloves you can hit somebody a lot harder.

Maybe they need to stop hitting and play the fucking game. Ffs you murricuns have blind aggressive stupidness in your veins.

Is Women's Baseball not a thing then?

(I think PornHub has the franchise on Women's Bull Riding...)

What the fuck Holyman, you think Ireland has no chance when we've just beaten Wales twice in the last 3 weeks?

New Zealand & England are the 2 teams that scare me the most. Wales, South Africa & Ireland are also more than capable of winning it. It will come down to the injuries during the early stages of the competition, if Wales loose Dan Biggar then they're screwed. England & Ireland have more depth to cope with it, New Zealand have enough depth to loose half the team & still be dangerous.

But I think that England has a chink in the armour, if their game plan doesn't work , they don't seem to be very good at adapting (compared to the others.) . Should be good though :)

You know Jr., I didn't *WRITE* that about IRL... But I *WAS* thinking it..!

(Which is a bit spooky...)

I always like seeing how the 2nd and 3rd Tier teams get on at the World Cup. Teams like Argentina, Canada and Tonga. They're usually trying to prove something, and give good spectacle.

I had high hopes for Scotland... (Always my Alternate Team) But they just seem to be the unluckiest team in Rugby...

As for England... Well, you know, Swing Low, and all that... But fundamentally: May the Best Team win!

I'll enjoy it all either way.

((O))

Of course not!

I was diplomatically moving onto a different theme to mask the fact you had telepathically busted me!

Have to say...

Many on the Japanese team don't look very Japanese...

Cutting through the Russian defence like a knife through butter though.
