    The IRB Under-19 world cup has just got under way in Belfast with Wales taking on New Zealand and Ireland taking on the defending champions Australia in a double header at Ravenhill this evening. Unlucky for those who would have just missed out on last year's tournament when a trip to Dubai was up for grabs, this time they're stuck with a trip to Belfast!

    Cant get the bloody thing to work :angry:

    Hopefully they'll at least show the finals over here like they did last year, although i doubt we'll make it that far this year with all our best players involved in Super14 matches.

    Kurtley Beale, Quade Cooper, Josh Holmes, Lachie Turner, David Pocock, AJ Gilbert, Brandon Va'alu and Will Genia aren't there. :(

    Bugger!... i'd pay money to see those guys play in the same team against kids their own age..... it would be murder.

    I'd imagine that feed was only available within the UK.
  6. Mate I was tournament official last time the U-19 RWC was on in Dubai and it was AMAZING! I forgot that these boys were the same age as I am when I met em... brilliant games...(although as an allblacksfreak, working the final as 4th official was hard!) great games nonetheless!
  7. Holy ****! I have the RWC on my cable!!! woohooo!!!! my cable is awesome!! all rugby tournaments live!!! woohoo!!!

    I'd say he would have paid money to a cable tv provider that just happened to have RWC and he didn't realise it.

    Well, I do know they have rugby... like RWC 07, and some of the northern hemi tournaments... I found out later that it shows ALL televised rugby tournaments in the world!!! woohoo!!! from 7s to super 14s, tri-nations to six nations, U-19s to RWC, Guinness to Magner league and MORE!!!!
    They also show the Engage Super League and the Rugby League Tri-Nations...

    we pay around US$100 a month, for their best bouquets... that happens to be the best in the middle east...

    and why would that be?
  14. I was at Belfast Harlequins for NZ vs Japan and England vs Argentina. For NZ I thought openside Luke Braid was outstanding (but given the 101 point margin I mainly just saw the attacking game). Robert Fruean is coming back from injury at outside centre for the Kiwis, and from what I saw him do against Wales I'd expect him to carve up the English defence tomorrow.

    England were solid and took down a spirited Argentina. Best player I saw was Matthew Tait's younger brother Alex who spotted a small gap in the Puma's defensive line and seared through it for a great try. Like his brother he's not very physically developed, even for 19 but he has pace to burn and cuts superb lines. Possibly one for the future..

    Looking forward to tomorrow, going to go to Ravenhill and see NZ/England and Ireland/SA. Hopefully the Irish will carry their good spirit on from the last two games and win it.

    Baby boks crushed the Irish.

    Ireland had some good opertunities though, but I think they were just outmuscled by our front rowers, and good gosh we have some excellent ball carriers.

    I'm happy to see our future boks atleast seem to be able to beat the Irish :p
