SANZAR Tri-Nations starts this Saturday



The annual SANZAR Tri-Nations tournament kicks-off on Saturday with the Springboks hosting the Wallabies at Cape Town.

It is expected that whomever wins the tournament will travel to France as favourites for the World Cup in Sept/October. South Africa gets the early advantage hosting their home games up-front, but unlike previous years neither of the Boks home 3N tests will be played at elevation, so no big advantage there.

The Red Terror will be going bush in Nova Scotia for the next three Saturdays and will miss the opening half of the tournament ~ at least until taped replays can be viewed. The best I can hope for is my trusty little shortwave radio, and scores from RNZI. Alas, this web-blog will be quiet until about the first week of July. Be sure to use those links at right for all the latest rugby news and commentaries.

Mediazone Rugby Channel will be broadcasting all six matches online, live and tape-delay downloads. They offer a "Tri Nations Pass" for all six test matches at a cost of $54.99. Individual Matches are also available on Pay-Per-View for $9.99. Click here for complete details.

Hey, I recently added a news widget from www.widgetmate.com to my blog. It shows the latest news, and just took a copy and paste to implement. Might interest you too.
