World Cup website launched

Good news - the IRB have launched a website for the World Cup! Bad news - and in defiance of mathematical logic - its for the "other" World Cup in 2011, not the one that is in 2010.

It seems the site is being launched to "celebrate" the fact that the men's competition is two years away, neatly ignoring that the women's event is only just over 10 months away and therefore (on that basis) might just be slightly overdue in having something? Certainly something better than the rather scrappy leavings from the 2006 event, which is all that is currently being offered - a site that does not even acknowledge that the 2010 competition will be taking place!

Perhaps something really special is being planned which will be launched in a blaze of glory, maybe after the Asian qualifiers in a few weeks time - something at least comparable to the men's site?

As things stand something comparable to the Junior World Cup would be a start...
