Rugby union is regarded as New Zealand's national sport. Winners of the inaugural Rugby World Cup, New Zealand are the leading points scorers of all time and the only international rugby team with a winning record against every test nation they have ever played. The All Blacks have held the top ranking in the world for longer than all other countries combined and in over 100 years only five of the top twenty ranked test rugby nations have ever beaten New Zealand... The All Blacks have won a record 75% of all rugby matches they have ever played since 1903 and they were named the International Rugby Board (IRB) Team of the Year in 2005, 2006, 2008 and a record fourth time in 2010.

Yeah but it's Rugby...

Why not have a hockey tournament. Who would still be walking on ice when all is said and done?

From what I can tell, the USA is doing better than Italy.

I feel comforted that we are not at the absolute bottom even though I do not know the slightest thing about rugby.

Then again, my alma mater beat a Big Ten team this last weekend.

Very quickly a try is like a touch down in American football worth 5 points, must on or over the line in oppositions end zone then a conversion or kick over the goal posts which is worth another two points, this kick must be taken from a direct line back from where try scored, example try scored on extreme right side could only be kicked from right hand side line but the kicker can take it back as far as he likes to improve the angle.

No forward passes, if you catch a ball and knock it forward opposition gets to feed ball back into a thing called a scrum ( this is where the forwards, bigger guys get to have man love and have a group hug) while the more speedy backs wait for ball to come out of scrum to do there thing and maybe put through fast hands as ball beats man.

I never played rugby union but played rugby league which has similar but you only have 6 tackles before its the opponents turn.

The Americans, Canadians and other minor teams are very popular here as we love supporting the underdog and we support anyone who plays Australia
