Re: Rugby World Cup

In case anyone is interested. One option is to find someone with Setanta sports and they can pay per view for $35.

The game is then apparently broadcast live on 210 for Setanta subscribers.

Rugby

Anyone know where I can listen to England v South Africa live on the internet?

Five live doesn't have the rights and therefore I have to wait for the delayed coverage on Setanta.
