The day has finally arrived!

I don't even know why I'm so excited about this World Cup. It feels like we don't stand much of a chance and yet... I can't wait for tonight! :D

Personally it's just that all the best rugby teams in the world are gonna treat us to some fun, and coincidentally we also have a team playing. :D

Can't wait for tonight!

why that game in particular? Ireland should comfortably beat them?

Just like SA will rip Japan a new one.

It's on the must watch list as I'm pretty confident Ireland will make it to the semis.

You don't normally watch rugby, do you?

I hope this RWC gives you some of the great stuff that can happen. :)

One of the things I enjoy about World Cups is that it gives minnow teams a chance to shine. Sometimes you just get great moments, like when Takudzwa Ngwenya gassed Habana.

Yeah, it's an amazing sport, truly love it!!

But watching your first live rugby match is really special! You have to watch live to really appreciate the physicality and brutality of it! It's quite unique in that regard, that energy and aura usually witnessed at the rucks and mauls...

nooo, don't even say it, you'll make it come true, lol.

Must.show.restraint! :D

LOL, Rugby World Cups are worse than the Cricket World cups too, much easier to watch most of the games when they only last 80 minutes.

Been to a few Sharks games and catch the odd match on tv. Not clued up on the nitty gritty but I do know how the scoring etc works.

New Zealand V Argentina shaping up to be the game of the weekend. Also think the England v Fiji game could serve up some bone crunching tackles :D
