Super 12 Rugby
Just wondering if the rugby fans on AR are following any of the Super 12 on Fox Sports World here in the States
Must say I'm hoping the SA teams do better this year. A friend of mine is actually playing for the sharks, I played school rugby with him, pretty cool.

one of the SA teams? pfft fu*k you mate hahah.
I go for the brumbies, since I'm from the ACT, I have to have some loyalty to them.
I haven't been following them much this year though...
good site is www.rugbyheaven.com.au

I'm playing here in the U.S. now, moved here about 5 yrs ago. I'm out with concussion and a neck injury now though. I play outside centre mostly. Hopefully I'll be back playing soon though. Did you see the thread I started about rugby vs. football.....got thee yanks good and fired up about which sport was tougher

where did you move from? I'm suprised rugby is so popular over there... maybe next world cup they might be 1/2 decent.
pfft rugby vs NFL, their football is just big fat dudes with shoulder pads, playing on cement haha.

The hurricanes one on the wekend which is good but i dont like that thick coconut Jerry Collins as capt, hes as thick as 2 short planks. Hey theres a guy on here called A123 and hes in SA, real cool guy we talk about rugby and cricket all the time i might get him back over here. Hey any one up for a little sports betting .........Hitman

Yeah we need more people on here that know what real spots are
I think the huricanes played the Cats right. The Cats suck SO bad despite all the talent they have. My hopes remain in the other 3 SA teams.

This is so awesome! I did not know that there were rugby fans on the AR website.
I play some rugby here in the states and just ordered FX Sports World to watch Super 12 and such. I haven't watched any recent Super 12 though unfortunately.. Anyone here still play some rugby??

Unfortunately i cant afford to play any more cause of the time off needed but a good game playing with mates in the weekend is allways good. The Hurricanes just drew with the Blues, being a canes supporter even i think the Blues were ripped by the refs call...........Hitman

Good to see we've got a couple more supporters here. I didn't watch any this week-end but I see the stormers and bull are 2nd and 3rd so SA teams doing ok. Sharks still in with a chance as well.
shannah I'm playing here in the states as well, my club's got div 1 playoffs on 4/17 in columbus, Ohio. Do you play for a club in the states or just fun?

Rugby looks fun as hell!

....and my SA teams choke in the Super 12 once again with only the Stormers making it to teh semis. Now I guess I have to wait and see if teh new coach can turn the Springboks (that's the south african national side for the americans on here ) around again.
