The 2011 Rugby World Cup actually starts this Sat the 8 Oct 2011 with Ireland vs Wales and England vs France.
The last few weeks has been an elaborate hoax convincing people that countries like Romania, Namibia, USA, Japan, and Scotland :), can actually play the 15 man game!
The IRB should be applauded for actually keeping it going for so long!

ThatManRuss is of the opinion that the top 8 countries should compete against each other every 4 years in whatever format they can come up with and crown the winning team!

I feel the same way about the Cricket World Cup but more so for the game of Rugby.

Most of u will probably disagree but deeeep down I know you agree with me!

Can the Bokke (South Africa) repeat or will the mighty All Blacks (NZ) finally turn form into being World Cup winners……… We will soon find out!

As for me I’m just glad the minnows are done being embarrassed!!

You can bite on both!!

So the Rugby World Cup 2011 (RWC ’11) has begun! Opening Ceremony out of the way and the hosts ( The All Blacks) cruise to a comfortable win 41-10 against Toga. My thoughts in a nutshell: All Blacks (perrenial favourites) look good but then they always do, Springboks – defending champs (nobody has ever won babck to back World Cups) I’ll give them and 83.5379787 % chance of accomplishing that feat! The Aussies – as with cricket – you can just never right these guys off!

As for the Northern hemisphere – a couple of contenders I suppose England and the rest of the 6 nations but I wouldn’t count on it!!

As for the minnows (you know who you are) should you be there – NO! Are you there – YES! Make the most of it, be friendly and use this opprtunity to market your country and help boost tourism! Hope you heard that Wales 🙂

The trophy should be won by a Tri-Nations team but hey thats just ThatmanRuss’s take on things!!!!
