Which seems unlikely.

Looks my extra $20 made the difference.

Nice to see a Calgary connection on the filed, 2 Calgary Hornets players in the game day squad.

Blevins off the bench and McRoie at 10 (who played great). Testament to his ability to move from 9 to 10 and impact the game.

World Cup berth for the Canucks! Solid game after a poor start vs. HK. Always wanted to make the trek to Japan...and this may be the push I needed!

Did anyone catch day 1 of the Canada Sevens? Those three huge upsets in a row, France over Australia, Spain over New Zealand, and finally Canada over Fiji, was some of the best sevens rugby I have ever seen. It sounded like a great atmosphere at BC place. Well done Canadian rugby fans!

My first time watching Rugby 7s. I am hooked! It is so much fun to watch! I had fun with my Fijian friend. I asked him who he was going for in Canada vs. Fiji. He said, "Fiji on my right hand, Canada on my left."

Glad you liked it! Sevens is one of the best spectator experiences around. Getting to see the rarity of a Canada win over Fiji at your first event is pretty cool.

The Wallabies!!!


It was the most points ever given up by the All Blacks. The World Cup might be wide open.

Meanwhile Canada has won a game in what feels like forever. They went 0-3 in the PNC and have a few more matches before what could be a dreadful World Cup this fall.

Hopefully Canada can at least beat Namibia at the cup. I’m not getting my hopes up.

South Africa wins the Rugby Championship. The All Blacks finished 3rd with a -17 points differential. If Wales beats England today they will take over 1st in the world rankings.

My new favourite gif:








Yeah the ABs will likely enact revenge this weekend and keep the Bledisloe again but I am still spending the rest of this week basking in the glory.

I think that AB's loss is the exception to the rule.

I am a Wallabies supporter (some of my favourite players ever played for them, Smith, Horan, Bernie), but I think they just caught lightening in a bucket.

It would be interesting to see how they do against 15 AB's.

Yes. Intriguing euphemism.

Sonny Bill Williams to Toronto? If he accepts the offer it would make him the highest paid rugby player in any code.

SBW fields staggering $9 million offer from Toronto Wolfpack

daft.

I actually don't see how the Wolfpack model is sustainable.


Also the product is crap.

It looks like SBW to the Wolfpack is official now. $10M over 2 years makes him the highest paid rugby player in any code.

Well yeah of course paying millions of dollars to bring Australian and Kiwi players to Canada to play in the English Super League is not sustainable. It is just a mining billionaire's toy.

Also, I wouldn't go as far as calling the product crap, more like okay. The English Super League is the 2nd best RL competition in the world and weird 13 man rugby is still rugby.

I actually don't mind League, a good game if league is enjoyable.

I watched some Wolfpack games. The level was poor, and I think the jump to the top of level is bigger than most people think.
