Imminent Rugby World Cup Disaster
The problem is, unless youre able to pay for subscription based television, you cant follow the game in England. Although take-up of such services is increasing here, its still not the norm. Most people have analogue five-channel TV, or Digital Freeview, which consists of a fairly basic selection of channels. For this reason, Ive really lost interest in rugby over the years.
But thats not the only reason Im feeling underwhelmed by the imminent World Cup. The fact is England are looking increasingly likely to get beaten by just about everyone. Ever since they won the last World Cup (after which some of the best players and the coach quit), theyve been totally abysmal. Most recently, theyve been on tour in South Africa, being made to look like amateurs.
Like I say, I dont really follow the game that much these days, but Ive decided Im going to be making a conscious effort to watch the World Cup. However, I have a feeling Ill watching Englands games through the gaps in my fingers.
