So it’s similar over there, I’m one of the bigger rugby fans amongst the people I know and I find find it a bit exhausting some times, someone asks you who you support and you have to ask “in what comp?”...and then explain why there are so many comps, that my experience trying to talk to people in Aus anywayWell over here, it's high school rugby, then Varsity Cup (which is on Monday nights) then Currie Cup teams, then Super Rugby then the Springboks.
I know a lot of people that only watch the Springboks, who aren't really rugby fans. But because Rugby League is nearly non-existent here, the people watch Soccer (mostly followed by the black people), cricket and rugby union.
Rugby has had a stigma attached to it in that it's the Sport of Apartheid, and has been trying to get more and more black people to become fans.
Hopefully this trend will grow even more after Siya Kolisi lifted the trophy...
Bottom line is, every country has their own set of issues and problems.
