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!!!!

You can bite on both……………………..

According to the New Zealand Herald KFC is to launch their new Double Down Burger/Sandwich thingie.

What makes this so special… While we strive to cut out things like bread/breadrolls due to their harsh effects on the body… If you (like me) have a love for sandwiches, and need a solution to the processed starch problem.

Well KFC has a proposed alternative (not answer). The specs for this sandwich are as follows as per NZ herald

The Double Down Sandwich is made of two pieces of bacon, two melted slices of cheese and a secret-ingredient sauce encased in two deep-fried slabs of chicken. It is to be released in Australia today.

A spokeswoman for Restaurant Brands New Zealand yesterday said a launch date for the new burger has not been confirmed, however it is “not very far away”.”

some of the nutritional info includes

” 1939 kilojoules, the 212g original recipe has 32g of fat and 540 calories; while the grilled version has 460 calories and 23g of fat.”
