It certainly wasn’t disappointing, the rugby; great entertainment - though perhaps not as gripping as the French game. And whilst the best team won, wasn’t it a shame the Argentine lads weren’t our opponents. If my dalliance with the rugby world cup has taught me one thing, it’s that the ‘passion’ element of we non-core supporters is largely down to the nature of our opposition. Nothing quite stirs the blood as a footy match against Germany, Italy, Argentina, France… OK, OK, so you’d also pay big money to watch Spain, Brazil and Holland; but South Africa? Australia and New Zealand? I mean, what’s the point?
