One thing that concerns us is the speculation that the IRB is going to reduce the number of teams participating to just 16. We do not believe that this is either in the spirit or the interest of the game of Rugby. The 2007 Rugby World Cup was a spectacle that has been unsurpassed by any other sporting event. The so called minnows of the sport brought an exciting element to the game with many giant slaying performances and close run things.

If the game is to develop, smaller countries need the opportunity to perform on a world stage and it is the responsibility of the IRB to ensure they are given every opportunity. This is a discussion point on the forum.

We will be providing information on venues and dates, the ability to purchase tickets for all the 2011 Rugby World Cup matches, information on the pools and who your team will be playing, all the matches and dates, in addition to live news feeds, commentary and reports on all matches. Plus, short, medium and long term weather reports, and 2011 Rugby World Cup predictions, as well as the national teams. You can also have your say and report on matches if you are there or provide opinion both now, before and after the matches by starting your own free rugby blog as well as open discussion with supporters world wide on the 2011 World Cup Rugby Forum. Then to make life really easy, we have supplied information about cheap flights to New Zealand, cheap hotels, cheap car hire, and travel information on buses and trains to all the matches.
