A World in Union - the 2011 Rugby World Cup!

Tomorrow sees the opening match of the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

I can't really believe how quickly the past 4 years have flown but here we are awaiting a feast of  sport - and all in the early hours of the morning!

If Wales qualify for the quarter-finals (particularly after the shambles of 1991, 1995 and particularly 2007) I'll be content. But time will tell.

I also decided to join a sweepstake for the event. Having won a handsome £28 in the football World Cup sweepstake last year when Spain came out victorious I felt it worth having another punt. But drawing Italy means my hopes are severely restricted!

But in the meantime, with thanks to Harry Hayfield on Youtube, here's a jolly message of good luck to all of the competing nations in the weeks ahead to the tune of the Rugby World Cup anthem 'The World in Union'.

Come on Wales...and Italy!


  1. I must have listened to about half a dozen of the song tonight, preparing my own post for tomorrow.

    Really looking forward to it now, although unsure as to whether I should get up for Scotland v. Romania (at 2am on Saturday) or cheat and Sky+ it!

  2. Thanks a lot for sharing the information.......
