Crusaders to show World Cup Matches at the Club

Kickoff: Friday 8th August at 3:15 pm EDT

As we come to the final countdown for the start of the Pool matches the warm up games produced some interesting results.

It was a weekend of ups and down for all the top-ranked teams except Ireland, who remain at number one, Scotland who stay fifth following a 33-6 win over Georgia, and Wales who remain in 10th, their lowest-ever position going into a Rugby World Cup, having sat out the last round of matches.

Twickenham Stadium was the scene of not one but two momentous matches less than 24 hours apart as the All Blacks suffered the worst defeat in their history on Friday night before Fiji stunned England on Saturday.
