I’m watching what I think is South Africa playing New Zealand in a rugby match on ESPN Desportes.
This is a serious rugged sport. I’ve heard the phrase “Give Blood. Play Rugby.” No kidding. There’s no serious padding but the game is physical and apparently super-dirty.
Who can’t get down with that? Anyway, I can’t understand the damn broadcasters, because of my inability to speak Spanish. But these guys are winners. They know what teamwork is all about.
The score in this one is SA 3, NZ 0. I’m watching New Zealand running the option here. Oh, oh, number 15 gets loose and belly flops into the “end zone.” It’s now NZ 5, SA 3. Apparently they get five for crossing the last line.
Notice, I don’t know the rules but it’s still at least interesting. Its better than soccer. And apparently there’s no fair catches in this one, a dude for NZ just got dogpiled after a kick.
And a dude for South Africa just got waxed on a kick. This is kind of fun.
