    Rugby AU: Australia Domestic: Round 1 (03 - 04 July 2020)

    From everything I've heard and read, they simply don't have the budget to do any advertising. Things look pretty grim, I hope they find a way to turn it around.

    Rugby AU: Australia Domestic: Round 1 (03 - 04 July 2020)

    I admit, I feel like I'm clueless about the Aussie teams. I think I'm most excited to see Western Force play, a team I've never seen before. From this year's comp, I seem to recall the Rebels being pretty bad, so I guess, overall, I'll take the Brumbies to win the comp.

    Super Rugby Aotearoa: Round 4 - [04 - 05 July 2020]

    Ugh, I hadn't caught that. What a time we live in. Yeah, I'd love my 'Landers to win, and they've been playing very well in my opinion, but two weeks in a row they're walking into a buzz saw... feels like, they'd have to play their best game AND have the Crusaders mail it in to have a chance...

    Super Rugby Aotearoa: Round 3 - [27 - 28 June 2020]

    OK, there it is - just appeared on the Rugby page on ESPN+ ... Hoo-freaking-ray!

    Super Rugby Aotearoa: Round 3 - [27 - 28 June 2020]

    Yeah, but once again, who knows? There are no listing on Fox Sports' site, and Sanzar says it will carried by our usual Super Rugby provider, but that'd be ESPN and it's not listed there, either. With American sports completely in limbo, you'd think they'd do a better job making their product...

    Super Rugby Aotearoa: Round 3 - [27 - 28 June 2020]

    That was rough, I was rooting for the underdogs in both matches, and it's almost worse when it's so close... Still, I thought the Highlanders really showed some good stuff out there, so I'm optimistic despite the result. Also, Caleb Clarke? Holy crap that dude is good! I see the Australian...

    Super Rugby Aotearoa: Round 3 - [27 - 28 June 2020]

    What’s the VFL? And yeah, no live sport sucks, sports with no crowds suck... but y’all will get those things way before my idiotic country does. There might not even be baseball in the USA, something I would have thought unimaginable even a few months ago. What a travesty.

    Holy crap, somebody get me one of those Highlanders helmets! Hadn’t seen those in the stands!

    Super Rugby Aotearoa: Round 3 - [27 - 28 June 2020]

    So cool! I'd planned to take my son to the inaugural Free Jacks match, but everything shut down literally the day before... *sigh* Love it! I've fantasized about making a similar road trip of NFL games, but alas, it hasn't come to be. Is there something special about the Aotearoa that has made...

    Super Rugby Aotearoa: Round 3 - [27 - 28 June 2020]

    I see several people from New Zealand on this thread - are y'all going to any of these matches in person?

    Super Rugby Aotearoa: Round 3 - [27 - 28 June 2020]

    Yeah, I have a feeling my Highlanders will come back to earth this weekend... will we see Dan Carter's first action? And what about Nehe? Hard to hold out much hope for the Chiefs, either, the Aotearoa may effectively end for them, it'd be almost impossible to come back from 0-3 in an 8-match...

    Super Rugby Aotearoa: Round 2 - [20 - 21 June 2020]

    They looked like they simply forgot to practice lineouts for the last 3 months... Still, it's indescribable how happy it makes me for it to be back, and just seeing the crowds feels like a blast from the distant past...

    I'd heard that, but never looked up a pic, that's great! What's in his right hand, a Polaroid?

    I guess he's a little rusty on the magic, eh?... Both games were pretty good, though by 60:00 or so, it seemed the Blues were destined to win. Seeing Umaga and Carter as water boys was something else! :P

    YESSSSS! What a game, holy effing cow.

    What a great game! My Highlanders by 3 at 54:00... worried about the Gats factor...

    I’m assuming the replay will be available, but I’m too jonesin’ to wait, and it’d be just them to have it live but no replay... 10 1/2 hours, can’t wait!!!

    I’m telling you, it’s there all right! :) Of course, 3AM and 11:30PM are the worst possible start times... But I don’t care, I’ll be watching!

    Viewing in the US?

    Yes! OK. If you go to the list-style schedule and go to 6/13, no Super Rugby appears. BUT, if you don't go to the list-style schedule, and instead scroll down to where all the various sports are listed with their little ball icons, and you click Rugby, BAM, there it is! First match at 3:05 AM...

    Still not listed on ESPN's upcoming programs. They are, quite simply, the worst.
