I just hope the pubs have enough beer to keep the punters happy...Kumamoto and Oita are in for rocking good time!

Lots of contenders for this one, not putting money on but If Super Rugby and Six nations is any gauge of what to expect, the Blackness might be pushing the proverbial .. uphill..bad run of injuries ,but..Let’s see how the Rugby Championship plays out especially against the Saffas, that will be the litmus test..

Star Wars buffs will suck it up, JJ Abrams is no slouch and he will prolly deliver a pretty good "product" for Disney...as for bargain bin shopping for latest releases, by the time this hits the shelves for thrifty punters you'll be on the pension...

The National Govt set up a lot of deals for the Chinese when John Key was in power, now Labour has to follow through on these one sided transactions...Hope Jacinda plays hard ball & throws some Human rights issue concerns into the fray..

Supersport dissapointed with Sunwolves ratings

Maybe time for the Saffas to join their Northern Hemisphere friends in a new format and leave the pacific basin for rugby to flourish...Bring back the Force and keep the Sunwolves, Jaguares can come too!

Say it aint so...They’re just coming right too, even without their JP internationals..Jamie Joseph and Tony Brown have done a pretty good job this year..No pastings of late (Sharks game, Nah) and very slim margins when they lost, historic win in NZ..

Shame Hong Kong didnt get more games,hard to imgagine Singapore getting on the Rugby bandwagon.Sanzaars money grab didnt work, poor form really...

Posted in: Super Rugby team Crusaders open to discuss name change following NZ mosque shooting See in context

Each Super Rugby team has its own namesake that represents the predominent history, culture or natural phenomena of the franchise's area. I hail from Dunedin, a city built on the blueprint of Edinburgh therefore the Highlanders, Christchurch (A name in itself!) follows an English design and of course named their team the Crusaders and so on. Back in the mid 90's, I remember going to the original Super 10 and Super 12 games at Carisbrook, nothing flash, no fireworks or night games or fancy gimmicks, just footy, never paid too much attention to the names.. In those days, NZ was still on the outer rim of the world with a very very small ethnic population of muslims and immigrants from Central Asia and Africa. I'm sure at the time of brainstorming a name for the Canterbury Super Rugby franchise, the name was a logical decision and no offense was made or taken, then...Fast forward twenty three years and things have changed dramatically and political correctness is the order of the day..As Goldy has pointed out, its up to the Crusader management and the people of Christchurch to make that decision. All I hope for is people to remember what has happened, show some respect and humility and lets get back to Rugby...

On a lighter note, why did they name Aucklands team the "Blues" ? :)

The most anticipated game of the year so far but common sense prevails...Good decision by Landers and Saders management to call this one off. Kia Kaha

Proverbial banging your head against a brick wall applies here. One thing that is suprising is the lack of suburban uprisings that say "Nah, don't build that monstrosity in our neighborhood" or maybe there is but all I know is there is a new 5 story monolith with a frkn lion on top with LED eyes that pierce the night looking at my balcony

All credit the the Sunwolves but sheesh, the Chiefs really suck this year! That was no close scoreline and the Wolves played for a lost brother, more fuel to stoke the fire!

Posted in: Watch the game or have a pint? World Cup fans may face a choice in Japan See in context

I call Fukuoka home ( Well..second home) and there are several sports bars around town that are dedicated to keeping the punters oiled and well fed, Fish and Chips, pies and general pub grub, all located within walking distance of each other. Surely the Rugby village will be the kicking off point for getting on the waste bro!

I hear your pain Ange, Missed the ballot last year, queued for 15 hours last night, Credit Card processing didn’t go through and had to queue again for another 5 hours, by then everything was gone but managed to get ABs in Oita, B section only available so ¥45,000 for 2 tix...most money I’ve ever spent on a footy match and it’s only a pool game :( but pretty excited nonetheless...I’ll be wild if I see empty seats at venue I applied for in the ballot...

Fingers crossed for the 1st in best dressed option on Jan 19th. All I want is 1 measly ticket to the Blackness in Oita. If I have to sell hot dogs in the stadium to get in, I'll do it!! :)

Probably due to sound restrictions and typical Japanese red tape having the Airport close at 10pm. Fukuoka Airport is pretty much located in the city... but I'd be steaming if I had to be at a wedding Fri morning..
