Default Rugby & Other Sports

Given our superb win over the convicts today 25 - 14 I was wondering, does anyone know of any sports network in the US that will cover rugby internationals, even if ppv ?

Swing low, sweet chariot, Comin' for to carry me home !

Cheers

We were talking about the same thing in Rob's thread from earlier today http://britishexpats.com/forum/showt...hreadid=160904

I'd say Fox world sports net is the only likely source for Rugby.

Also, for those Brits(or any others) that enjoy the Tour De France, then the Outdoor life channel is where you'll be glued come july 5th.

Fox Sports World does cover International Rugby (if you are going to be living in Phoenix Cox Cable do carry it as part of their digital package)

The games are not live however

Yep, we have it at the house. Watched a few premiership and champions league games back in febuary. They also showed a few Sky Sports shows. Of course Rupert Murdoch has his finger in both pies, which is probably why there was no six nations championship showed this year, as it was back on the BBC.

I watch Wales play in the home internationals on the BBC site- not the best way to watch a match but better than nuffin. If anyone knows where we can watch the Home Internationals in US- let me know please.
Well done England BTW

Are you sure it is actually Rugby that the Welsh are playing these days ? Did they not end up with a spectacularly shiny wooden spoon this year ?

yours in a gloating after all the shit we had to put up with in the 70s mood

The All Blacks would probably be able to answer that question !!!

Okay, okay...at least we can drown you out in the singing dept...you'll never beat us with that. We can teach you how to sing Swing Low.....properly! anytime you like mate But we'll allow you your few years of glory after all the shit we made you eat in the 70's...and in the words of the inimitable Max Boyce "I was there" then, to see it all go down

Walking away singing Sospan fach yn berwi ar y tan...

or worse...maybe he ate it! The last time I saw Max Boyce was in the concert for the then new Welsh Assembly- he gave a rousing, remade rendition of Hymns and Arias, in which he offered to take Prince Charles down the chippie- where he could have fish off the bone.
He's still around...must be getting on a bit now though.
