So, I know not a lot on here are egg chasers but we have another chance at #sportingjongoism over the next month or so.
Not sure who the favourites are but I suspect that New Zealand will be, here we go…
As the competition is in Japan most matches start early morning (GMT), probably better suited for @PhilippineSaint to watch.
So, who are you cheering on??
I may be in the better time zone but due to a fucking idiot in the office in KL they will not pay the 100 odd dollars it cost to get our subscription to the channel upgraded so us offshore workers can watch it.

This could go in the cheerful nice stories thread but it’s more related to #sportingjingoistic nutters
Oh how the rest of the world will be laughing a this, the England players are mediocre at best, they wouldn’t get into any of the other teams…#sportingjingoism
The Russians score the first try and conversion at the world cup and lead the hosts 0-7 after 10 mins

Now, it WAS incredible when Beckham scored the penalty to beat Argentina there in 2002, then came straight over to me & my mate in amongst the Argie fans and gave it large in front of our old Dubai Saints Flag.
That was a once in a lifetime moment.

and Italy beat lowly Canada by 48-7, only 6 tries though…
The redneck we have onboard agreed to a 50 rm bet on the outcome of the England USA game and 20 mins later after looking up rugby and USA on the internet came back with you should give me odds of 6-1.
will collect the easiest money I will earn this trip in the morning.
