I'm going to have to watch on delay Sat and Sun evenings, because while I normally would jump at the chance to wake at 3:00am for live rugby I'm instead getting over America's disgraceful exit in the most American way possible -- by shooting stuff all day

So...Iím moving overseas permanently next month, however in my haste I booked my flight on the night of the rugby World Cup final. What is my best way to watch a replay of the final undisturbed by the horrible possibility of spoilers? Do streaming sites host replays?

NBC Sports Gold is good at staying spoiler-free, I have found.

Itís only in the US, so if youíre in Not the U.S., youíll need a VPN and a login.

Iím sure there will be rips of other English language coverage available. Not sure the best place for it Iíd imagine thereís a spot out there.

There's a :files: place that has recordings of each match up a couple of hours after the final whistle usually. The hardest part is avoiding any spoilers until then. (drat you, Google Discovery)

Got told today I am supposed to be at a birthday dinner Saturday evening, about half an hour after the first game kickoff, and I will be attending it. What kind of bastard has a birthday gathering without a tv during the world cup semis?

A selfish bastard, that's who.

In a fit of poor planning I'm doing back to back trail runs over the weekend of the semi's. Both races start at 9am so I'll miss them entirely.

I usually go for the underdogs and I love a good Cinderella sports story as much as the next guy, but I am a Boks fan for life so that is where my loyalties lie.
Otherwise feeling like New Zealand is going to win due to 10 very good minutes of rugby and 70 minutes of mistakes, but will root for Ireland all the same. As for the England/Australia game I wish it would be possible for both teams to lose. Also I guess Wales is playing France so am expecting France to France it up good and either play like utter poo poo or utterly inspired.

They could have been the Black Ice and been all dangerous to motorists.

I think Australia are going to win by killing Farrell to force Ford on and then relentlessly bullying him.

The Wallabies are absolutely in no danger of making the semis.

My brother and sister-in-law's dad, who is English, are coming over to watch. He went through the DABDA process over the course of 80 minutes 4 years ago.

England being knocked out would be the funniest result of the draw. Moreso than the saffers, because that result would also feature the heartfelt joy of Japan being through to the semis.

Japan making it to the semis and then the 3rd/4th place match is probably the dream of World Rugby and the JRFU at this point, though the ticket sales donít need it it would give them another super high rated Japan game on domestic TV.
