Question Rugby Coverage in the US

Ok, I know that this should probably be posted in the sports forum but figured that I'd get a better response here.

In autumn rugby union internationals are coming up in a few weeks and I was wondering if they're available anywhere on tv over here. I checked the setanta website and they don't seem to have the rights for any of them. Given that their on sky back home does this mean that the fox soccer channel will have them.

Thanks

Ok, I see that setanta actually has the england games on ppv.
Any idea about the Ireland or wales matches - can't seem to find them anywhere.

Cheers Bob
Was hoping to be able to watch the game in a boozer but I guess the torrents will do if all else fails

Lightbulb Re: Rugby Coverage in the US

I've just received an e-mail from a local expat wives group and there was a link on it to a British expat sports website in the US....take a peek and see if there is any info there:

There was also something here too:

it's actually pretty popular around here, certainly with the uni students because they can still play on the shite fields in winter...and it's cheap on equipment...

Why thank you.
Not too much info there relating to my question I'm afraid, but the sites are good to know.
