Sorry, I had to throw that in...
and for those gloating over the Patriots...

ok..back to your question..I don't watch soccer but my son does..so he is probably following it..though he is in such great mourning over his football team, I'm not sure.:cry:

Is rugby like football?

No, in soccer/football you do not handle the ball with your hands, (hence football) in rugby you run with the ball in your hands :)


South Africa humiliated England 36-0 in a Pool A mismatch at the Stade de France on Friday.

In rugby they do not wear the protective shoulder-wear like in Football :idea:

On 30 Sept. we play against the USA :D

That will be a massacre: 80-0

Looks like SA are the form team. Aussies and Kiwis will be up there too. England will struggle to beat Samoa in their next game after the hiding they got from you guys. Argentina might be the surprise packet.

What about the 20/20 World Cup, have you seen any games?

Cheers

Hi Leigh, no, I have not been watching the cricket :) Since we lost against the Aussies :cry:...... nahhhh .... Actually I have been enjoying the summer-flu (NOT!!!)

I wonder what the biggest score difference is going to be :hmm:

Yup, Australia is playing pool B, we are playing pool A, and NZ is playing pool C. We were seated no.4 ... now we are no.3 (Needless to say Aussies and NZ are 1, and 2) So at least we'll get to play a couple of games before we meet you ;)

Although we have beaten England 36-0, we have beaten Samoa 59-7...So England might have a change against them :hmm:
