USA-Canada-England Rugby Cup???

I heard on the news today that 'The Churchill Cup' will be held as a Tri-nations event between America, Canada and England.

It could be pretty exciting but I'm just wondering what our friends across the pond think of Rugby?? It would certainly be a good thing to have more worldwide competition and not just from the Ozzies and Kiwi's!!

I think I've left myself open to a few low blows from our Antipodean cousins!

You really should not talk about the Aussies like that!

However - suprisingly enuf there are quite a few colleges that have rugby teams - quite a few of them are nothing more than a "club sport" which means the college itself does not actually supply much support for the program.

So in my humble opinion, I would say it would be a cake walk for those who have big time rugby associations/leagues and us poor folk from the colonies would get our a$$es kicked on a regular basis.

I think it would probably be like playing an International (American) Football competition between England, Canada and America - Canada and America would have a decided advantage!

BTW - I never did understand why grown men would make a circle, hold onto each others hips and try to look up the shorts of the guy in front of them - I can imagine the result if the guy in front passed gas!:eek:

:D You're right to a certain extent but I'm expecting that given the level of fitness at American and Canadian sporting colleges and the similarities betwixt rugger and football the North American countries will soon become a force to be reckoned with.

A bloke in Oz was recently hauled up before the league for sticking (regularly) his finger up the back-sides (yes right up!!) of his fellow players during the scrum!!! :eek:

As far as the Ozzies go I'm getting a few cracks in (pardon me!) before the Ashes start :D :D They can take it coz they can certainly give it out!!!

Last time I was at Twickenham I was working in a niteclub fridau night until 4am ... coach 5am to Twickenham... watched England win in the last minute against Australia (australian dude behind went suprisingly quiet) - got back to sheffield at 7pm then went clubbing for 16 hours (gatecrasher/insomniacz) then to the pub... on sunday night I was standing up and forgettingwhy I stood up..

classic weekend.

Hipster I'm glad you recognise the inevitability of your impending defeat!! :rolleyes:

I'll be listening to the coverage on the Internet - what a fabulous invention.

As far as the Rugby goes the sooner the sport expands the better - I'm sick of football (soccer)!!

What Uni was that EP?

I was at the Royal School of Mines in London - much of my dismal performance in the 2nd year was due to my sharing a residence with some of the Mines rugby team during that year!! :D

Oh my god what hangovers we had.
