    That is why I like that IRB Total Rugby show you get on fox sports. Every week they have a story about a rugby minnow.

    A top show that concentrates on the story, not the presenters' personalities. Much more professional than the Rugby Club.

    This post by Anthony on the Not Set Pieces thread deserves a quote here. It is one of the best posts ever made in our forums:

    I recall they had a youth tour here last year. I remember seeing a group of teenagers in their Columbia track tops walking around Darling Harbour carrying Wallabies and Tahs gear with Gilberts in their hands.

    A nice piece in the Wall Street Journal about a 42yr CEO in San Antonio.
    "Mr. Salter says he believes rugby offers the strongest team camaraderie of any sport. After every game it is tradition for the host team to arrange a dinner for the visiting team. "I've run track and played basketball, but if you play rugby, you really form a bond with your team that is hard to explain," he says."

    The name of the country is Colombia, chaps. Not Columbia. That's a University.

    Canada defeated Fiji for the first time since 1995 in Ottawa on wednesday night, 20-18.

    Canada now leads the Pacific Nations Cup and faces Tonga in Kingston, Ontario on Saturday.

    Canada is giving a lot of players a run which is great to see.

    A week after Tonga is Ireland at BMO Stadium in Toronto. They are hoping for 20,000 to attend.

    After that, they face Japan in Japan and then a break until the USA in August (one game in Toronto and one in Charleston).

    Lastly - they face NZ Maori in November in Toronto.

    Toronto getting a lot of love at the moment due to scheduling conflicts in Vancouver with other stadiums and the IRB not approving the artificial turf at B.C Place - i think they wanted to host the NZ Maori game there.
