Real Rugby Nuts


Sky – what a pain

Posted in Frustrations by therugbynut on August 5, 2006

Well I dared to take two weeks off holiday with my son. Great trip to the Dolomites in Italy, we mountain biked (barely mind you, have you see the size of the mountains), hiked, canyoned, rafted and, if I had my way, would have para-glided as well. If anyone wants an active holiday like this, give me a shout and I can give you a great recommendation. I am knackered and looking forward to watching rugby!

So I get back off a two week break ready to watch the last two Tri-Nations games (I knew the scores anyway and am picking up my bets this Saturday – bet for beer, so should be a cheap night) and Sky went and waffled for too long, so my tape ran out. Looks like serious investment time, Sky+, if I am to make sure that I don’t miss out again.

Back to a full week of Rugby this week (remember beginning of the week is a Saturday), Australia v South Africa at the Telstra Dome, can’t see South Africa turning things around like they did two years ago and winning the Tri-Nations. So money definitely on Australia, but that said I never expected the Aussies to be that close to the All Blacks in their last game. All Blacks remind me of England at the last World Cup, strong defence (weather the storm mentality) followed by swift counter attacking. Anyway rest of the week is Training Tuesday, Committee meeting after training and training Thursday again!

Catch you after the game today.
