Super 14 kicks off!

February 10, 2006

The new rewly expanded southern hemisphere Super 14 competition got underway yesterday with the Hurricanes pulling an upset and blowing away the Blues at the Auks home fortress.

It looks as if Fox Sports World has not picked up the rights to broadcast S14 matches in North America -- and I feel an enraged take-no-prisoners commentary may be forthcoming from these parts soon -- but Mediazone has picked up rights to broadcast games online, they have all sorts of packages available from single game to entire season. Check out their website here.

The big match in the Six Nations this weekend is Ireland travelling to France. Rugby Planet has the preview and predicts France by less than 10 points (bookies have France by 14). It should be fascinating to see what home team turns up -- the side that dismantled the Wallabies and Springboks in November, or the side that capitulated to Scotland last week?
