Re: Rugby World Cup

Anyone know a sports store or other in Switzerland carrying the rugby jerseys? Due to some life circumstances, I left getting my husband his birthday gift too late (South African jersey, online is super expensive shipping and I donít think it would be on time either). Iím roughly equidistant from Neuch‚tel, Fribourg and Lausanne.

Are these prices OK?

Re: Rugby World Cup

Prices are fine but shipping is probably too late I saw the official 2023 ones would ship on time from the official retailer, but the shipping costs were over half the Jersey cost and brought it to out of budget unfortunately.

Isnít there a guy from Ireland on this forum? IĎve seen a couple of references to the country here He should be quite confident
I believe there are more than a few of us. I'm not sure if I'm quietly confident, quite confident, or more possibly, pessimistically nervous.

Re: Rugby World Cup

Most entertaining match of the tournament so far. But the refereeing was poor - they really need to get a consistent line with high and no arm tackles. The physicality of the games is only going to increase at the knockout stages.

Re: Rugby World Cup

Are there any England fans going to be watching on Saturday for the Chile and then South Africa Ireland games? I was looking at Kennedies in Zurich to watch.

Re: Rugby World Cup

There should be two intense / interesting games this weekend. As a keen irish fan, I'm really looking forward to the Ire V SA game.
The 7-1 split by SA is really fascinating.

And Wales Vs Aus could be really interesting too.

Re: Rugby World Cup

Absolutely the best two teams in the world! This could/should have been a final game. Well done Ireland! The physicality though...I expected SA to be dominating this aspect, but the Greens were outstanding. And Andy Farell making all these changes 20-15 before the end? Genius! I'm still hyped up...awesome game!

This. And the referee was good. And the best fan song:

As to the best in the world - the fat Lady still has a month to go before she gets on stage.

So many family and friends from France and Ireland - if they both make it and face each other, it will feel like civil war

If there's any "fairness" in sport, this should be the final game. France, however, are not as consistent as Ireland or South Africa. Also, I expect the All Blacks to wake up and show their true colors. On top, Dupont is practically irreplaceable.

Missed the game last night, but happy to just now see Wales eliminate Australia.

Re: Rugby World Cup

Wales were excellent and Australia were absolutely rubbish.
The level of effort out of some of the australian players last night was dreadful.
But Wales are looking very good at the moment, which I don't think many would have expected before the tournament.
