No need to stay up late - watch the action when you wish!

A reminder that most of the games in the Nations Cup have been recorded (well almost - the end of the England/France game was lost due, presumably, to the power problem they had) and these recordings are still available. Take the time to have a look at women's rugby at the highest level:
In addition the "CanAm" test between USA and Canada played a few week ago is also now available. This is particularly well worth watching simply because of the superb camera work. By the look of it the recording was made on a hand-held camera by the touch line, but it captures everything and so close that its like being on the field with the teams. You really can see the technique of all positions in great detail - look for whoever is playing your shirt and see how they do it. Or just enjoy the action. No commentary, but plenty of enthusiastic crowd support. Well worth a look.
  • First Half (misses the start- but there's a wonderful ruck within the first minute of the recording after which there is really no let-up!)
  • Second Half
Meanwhile on the subject of watching rather than playing, fancy seeing Saracens free next week (that is the professional men's team!)? Well, they are playing Nottingham at Vicarage Road in Watford on Tuesday, kick-off 7.30, and admission is FREE - even for the "posh" seats in the Rous Stand. It may be "just" a friendly, but Sarries should be unveiling their new team for the 2009/10 season and there should be plenty of tries and action. If you can get there it should be a fun evening!
