    Rugby World Cup On Telly

    Well I just saw an ad on UBC announcing at last that they'll be showing the RWC (whew!).

    And starting from I think the 25th of this month there'll be replays of games from the last World Cup (Star Sports I think).
    Or would you like to swing on a star?

    Not sure mate, I know the first game for the Wallabies is Japan on the 8th of September, so I'm assuming the first game of the tournament is one or two days before that...

    I always prefer home when I can mate, but I'm more than happy to meet up somewhere. I'm not sure if Bus Stop will be showing it but that's quite a pleasant little beer garden to watch sport in, and there's a few places on soi 33...

    That Irish bar on Convent is alright too.

    Where's that?

    BTW from what I could gather the RWC will be broadcast on ESPN, with the replay of last years matches on Star Sports.

    Looky Looky is another Aussie pub round the corner from the office. Alright in there, but a bit small for my sport viewing needs. Watched a few recent games in the Office with all its new tellies which was OK.

    Not a big fan of the Office myself. I do like the idea of getting out to watch the first game though (will it be France as the hosts or England as defending champs I wonder?).

    Def weren't you heading back to Blighty or something?

    Not till October or November mate.

    The Office has improved a bit lately. More TVs all over the place, more chance of getting the volume turned up on the commentary instead of some fcuker prancing with a violin

    Seems a lot of the big games including the opener are Friday nights French time - that means 2 a.m. here

    I went there are few weeks back. Was not impressed. The manager seemed a nice guy but I got groped by a bar girl in front of my wife, while I was watching the game. Bloody poor form. The big screens are an advantage especially when they turn the sound up.

    That's good to hear, their refusal to do this (and turn off the rancid Thai pop music, during a cricket World Cup Final for Christ's sake!) was the reason I gave it the brush in the first place.

    I know a cool and comfy pub that'll stay open especially for those games.

    Been there a million times dude. Never been groped unless I wanted to be and I never take the wife

    The (new?) manager is a nice guy for sure!

    Re: Rugby World Cup On Telly

    Well I recently checked my UBC guide and it turns out the first televised replay of a game from the last WC is tomorrow evening.

    It's France V USA, and the best thing is because we've forgotten the early rounds of the last Cup we can watch games like this without knowing who's going to win...
