Practical Beats Spectacular (Springboks vs Samoa)

Posted on 30 Sep, 2011, by in Rugby

The contrast of style clashing between the Springboks and Samoa put South Africa in the World Cup Quarter Finals after a very hard earned 13-5 victory, with all 13 points scored in the first half. George Stowers’ try for Samoa in the second half just sweetened the blow for Samoa, saying farewell to the tournament after the group stage. More

Kicking and Scrumming Enough for Upset (Ireland vs Wallabies)

Posted on 17 Sep, 2011, by in Rugby

Jonathan Sexton’s kicking wasn’t brilliant, but along with Ronan O’Gara later on it was just enough to complement Ireland’s brilliant Scrumming en route to a 15-6 win over the Wallabies, putting them on top of Group C in the Rugby World Cup. More

Posted on 11 Sep, 2011, by in Rugby

Ben Youngs Just About Enough (England vs Argentina)

Posted on 10 Sep, 2011, by in Rugby

This wasn’t the performance Martin Johnson expected from his 2011 Six Nations winning side. No one expected Jonny Wilkinson to miss so much. Argentina were the more physical, dominant side for the first 60 minutes, but Ben Youngs’ entrance to Scrum-Half shifted momentum and also got England the only try of the match, enough for a 13-9 opening match win.

Posted on 24 Aug, 2011, by in Rugby

I love it when sporting events are done in Lego, prior to them or afterwards, depicting the events. This time, a nice Lego clip to get us ready and pumped up for the 2011 Rugby World Cup, two weeks away from kicking off in New Zealand. A nice Haka with the tiny fellows, Chris Ashton’s swan dive and more. Enjoy. More

We’re a month away from the 2011 Rugby World Cup’s opening match between the All-Blacks and Tonga, so we thought it might be a good time to check the pages of history and give you a run down of the previous winners in the relatively young tournament (inaugural World Cup was in 1987, also in New Zealand) which has been contested six times so far.
