Never actually watched any Rugby until that video. That was actually really exciting. I could totally follow Rugby. It's almost like nonstop football.

Well this is known as league. Usually the term rugby means rugby union which is an even more physical sport

So Australia defeated New Zealand 20-10 in this years ANZAC test.

This game is kinda a remembrance game. It's is titled so cause it's played usualy with 2 weeks of ANZAC day. So what better way to do it by Australia vs New Zealand.

Injuries are, Greg Inglis with leg and groin (possibly a hip) problems, and some kiwi dood who broke his thumb in the first tackle of the game.

I depart north tomorrow to attend the biggest game in the history of dairy farmers stadium. All accommodation is booked in Townsville and the stadium is nearly sold out. Why? Cause it Brisbane Broncos skipper Darren Lockyer's last ever game in Townsville against the local North Queensland Cowboys.

Well Manly won grand final :(

Australia just defeated New Zealand 46-6 in the Trans Tasman test leading up to the 4 Nations tournament which will be in England this year (look for separate thread).
