I was looking forward to X factor. What's all this rugby malarkey?

Watch the All Blacks, they're amazing. Especially that number 11 guy.

X factor is tripe. wink
It'll be on later. Dontcha know there's a World Cup on.

I'm not enjoying it as Wales have been knocked out. Harrumpphhh.

I'm being made to watch with the Kiwi DH.... I still don't understand it, they all just jump on each other. He is getting rather excited though!

dancerchancer Sat 17-Oct-15 20:50:48

Yes it is tripe, but that's what I watch, I don't think it's on later, thinks it Jonathon Ross. sad

shakey they had a great first half. I thought they'd get through on the first half performance but they couldn't keep it up.

That Dan Biggar is rather tasty too. My team (England) were out after 2 matches... Very sad.

The WC is brilliant, some matches have been a joy to watch.

I love the Haka then watching The All Blacks play, brilliant TV if you like sport.

Shame Wales lost.

I fucking love rugby. I know all the rules and everything. grin

We just got back from Twickenham. Wales were awesome, such a shame. And now i know some of the rules too!

Much better than X factor

YABU! There's some seriously world class rugby going on! !

Snoopadoop Sat 17-Oct-15 21:09:06

I love Nigel. He's wonderful. He just stood there, hands behind his back, watching. Now he's going to tell them off!

Love rugby.

X Factor is ok, I like singing competitions, but I tire of the sob stories, novelty acts, cliches, ads.

Twowrongsdontmakearight Sat 17-Oct-15 21:10:47

Loving it! Sorry about Wales though.

NotMeNotYouNotAnyone Sat 17-Oct-15 21:11:25

I'm not really into sport but would much rather watch rugby than the X factor! Even though Wales lost sad I'm rooting for Ireland tomorrow though!

BathshebaDarkstone Sat 17-Oct-15 21:11:38

It's getting a bit boring, I'd have liked France to put up a bit of a fight.

tldr Sat 17-Oct-15 21:12:47

X factor is tomorrow. You're clearly not a big fan or you'd have found out about this the first week it was moved for the rugby. You know, when the rest of us did. wink

Wishfulmakeupping Sat 17-Oct-15 21:13:41

Agreed OP fed up of corrie being moved too

Gobbolinothewitchscat Sat 17-Oct-15 21:13:54

I find stuff like this hugely disruptive. Same with football

Now free view is available, I think dedicated channels should be set up for things like the RWC. Anyone can watch it for free so it's the same as being in terrestrial
TV but means that mainstream channels are t affected

Snoopadoop Sat 17-Oct-15 21:15:44

When did they get so relaxed about blood? There are bleeding players there, one French bloke is bleeding from his ear... Yuk.
Do they not do blood replacements anymore?

I'm probably asking the wrong people if you're pining the rescheduling of x factor.

Flumplet Sat 17-Oct-15 21:19:02

Oh god I'm indiscreetly salivating over loving the rugby with a naice glass of wine or winewine <trundles off in search of a pissed thread>

tldr Sat 17-Oct-15 21:19:47

I thought that guys ear was bleeding too! Thought I was seeing things. But I don't know. Yuck.

Flumplet Sat 17-Oct-15 21:20:13

It's a bloody good game also though, and all that.

ChopsticksandChilliCrab Sat 17-Oct-15 21:20:48

The French seem to be in danger of losing their shorts. Better elastic or better fabric would be good. Not that I'm just looking at their shorts obviously. Loving the match.

nancy75 Sat 17-Oct-15 21:21:33

Can't stand rugby, Dh is an Aussie so it's the second most important thing in the world ( after cricket of course)

PurpleDaisies Sat 17-Oct-15 21:22:02

I think Nigel is a legend too snoop. He's how I learnt how to control my disruptive classes. They should hire him out to teacher training colleges.
