    I'm creating this 'corner' bcause I do not have time to research and its kind of confusing too and sometimes is nice to have at least somethings alreay chewed a bit when we have no idea...plus I still haven't start with material Novice gave me in another thread too...:rolleyes: :tongue:

    I need help from sport affectionados rugby persons:

    But since last night that for a case of destiny I found at youtube the Rugby Haka men, that I'm fascinated by them doing haka..and the Maori hakas traditions going on in sports particularly in New Zealand, but may be an Island thing going on in other places...very cool!

    Than..I already found out there are 3 types of rugby...and that are World Cups, 6 Nations and Home between the UK teams..or something like that.

    But what I want to know is where can I watch some games here in the US, the season they play, who is the best (I like the NZ AllBlacks of course), and is rugby a bit of mix of soccer and US football? Why some use little head cover and others not (they may be the gol keeper)...and it seems that the Europeans teams have more oportunity to play more tournements than the others just in the World Cup, why? Thanks, for now!

    A Pom is an native of England found in one of the colonies.

    Australia, as with most sports, is one of the premier teams in all froms of Rugby. (Ducks to avoid flying bottles of Steinlager!!)

    And we even have our own version of the Haka.

    I'm sure that the Western Suburbs Ruby Club of Virginia could be of help to you. I haven't watched any of their games though. Perhaps you can.:smile:
