    Great for those who.....

    1. Don't have Foxtel
    2. Are not working.
    3. Are working but have a TV available.

    But not for those who..........

    4. Are working, have a TV available but are the only full-on Rugby supporter on a shift with about a dozen Eagles and 2 Dockers.

    Got most of them converted but not enough to watch in preference to the Eagles-v-Brisbane. So it's late night delayed as usual. Ain't work a bitch sometimes.

    yeah, me and the missus sat down and watched the game on GEM. GREAT! not too many ads, commentating was typical. I had played a game and a bit of ruggers, and was stiff-as, so i didn't want to stand around a pub for it.

    THANKS Channel 9!

    I'd suggest all those that watched it send an email or facebook WWS/Ch 9. hopefully they keep doing it!

    post on here about it live in Perth, and i suppose like everyone comments!

    I would suggest people get onto them about the plans for world cup coverage. I asked about it on the WWOS Facebook page and they commented that they have not finalised their plans yet.

    I smell a rat....

    Pretty easy to plan for, show it live, show it all.

    I saw a post on the WWOS sports facebook page saying they were only planning to show 17 games - when I asked if it would be the same for Perth I got the reply in my last post about it the telecast schedule not being set as of yet

    Chuck Norris has the greatest Poker-Face of all time. He won the 1983 World Series of Poker, despite holding only a Joker, a Get out of Jail Free Monopoly card, a 2 of clubs, 7 of spades and a green #4 card from the game Uno.

    I would never give up my Foxtel but surely people shouldn't have to pay to see such a massive event like the RWC

    Soccer is probably 4th tier sport in this country when compared to the other major codes but they got every game of their world cup televised! (even if it was on SBS)
