Any rugby fans out there.

I went to the brumbies/ waratahs match lastnight and it was great.
I have been a rugby fan my whole life and I think it is easily my favourite code of football. Now it is getting to the end of the season it is a good time to discuss all the teams chances.

In a very close season who will win the super 12?

Well, its hard for me to pick between The Blues and The Chiefs. The Blues have the history and the Chiefs have the form. So, the Chiefs have it.

That's rugby league. Rugby union is the much better game.

Different games entirely. No offence to people from VIC, WA etc, but it's surprising how many followers of AFL don't realise that Rugby League (NRL) and Rugby Union (or just plain Rugby) are two separate games.

Rugby Union is a game of tactics and skill played all over the world. Rugby League isn't. :wink:
