    Live match reports??

    I have a mate at work offshore near Malayasia and nhe is seeking a site where he can get live written updates of Tri Nations matches, not a site with streamed video, just written updates.

    Any suggestions???

    How about thescore.com.au or Fox Sports. They definitely have the running result, but not 100% about commentary

    How about streamed radio? Check the http://twf.com.au/view.php?pg=liveupdates page for a radio stream from Radio Sport NZ which has all games played against NZ. There's also scores there - but no commentary. GAGR usually have live commentary, but it's more like a bunch of fans watching and commenting rather than actual game commentary.

    Lastly, if we have a volunteer to commentate, I can set up something here ...

    ESPN do a reasonable minute-by-minute version (www.espnscrum.com) based on their very good ball-by-ball cricket coverage.

    The Aus-SA match is at: http://www.espnscrum.com/tri-nations...ch/121714.html although you have to scroll past the Wales-England match to get there!

    In the past I've used www.sportal.com.au or www.rugby365.com for online updates. They update every 2-3 minutes usually.

    That's a pretty good service. Use it often when I'm at work. The only annoying thing is the auto refresh. You have to continually scroll your way back to your last read - if your company expects you to be productive and actually also do some work while the match is on.

    www.planetrugby.com has good live scores and commentary - the only issue I've had was for a Blues games earlier this year when the guy doing it seemed to be on crack.

    My company knows that during the rugby season, that 3pm meeting in my calendar every Friday is inviolable.

    Does the Moon and Sixpence know to have a beer and a seat at front and centre ready?
