New Zealand is playing South Africa right now (match started at 11 a.m.)
Rugby's pace is more similar to our football.. a lot more stopping and starting but is fun to watch..

Sorry I missed it! Rugby, especially New Zealand, is one of the most exciting sporting events to see. I played one season a few years back and will probably pay for it in years to come...

Are you seriously claiming that Rugby - be it Union or League - stops and starts more often than American Football?
:lol:

Bertie, I meant in comparison to Australian Rules Football which we talked about in the past.
Rugby League is probably more pleasing to the eye for many but rugby union is the real deal..
scrums and all.
