Hello rugby fans.

With 31 days to go before kickoff in the first match in NZ, I was wondering if anyone knows how we can watch the games here on STX?

Go All Blacks! 😎

A game played by two teams of 15 players each on a rectangular field 110 yards long with goal lines and goal posts at either end, the object being to run with an oval ball across the opponent's goal line or kick it through the upper portion of the goal posts, with forward passing and time-outs not permitted.

That makes sense. I'd heard it was a game for gentlemen with odd-shaped balls.

I managed to find out the following for wold cup rugby coverage:

United States & Territorries: NBC Universal
• 3 matches (including Finals) premiering on NBC
• 7 matches (including USA pool matches) premiering on Universal Sports
• 38 matches premiering on pay-per-view

According to thier website, Universal sports is channel 625 on direct tv and happens to be on free preview thru 9/30, but I can't find out the PPV info. I don't think Universal sports is availible on Innovative cable.

Anyone have more info on how to get the pay-per-view games?
