This tournament, between 6 European countries, begins in February and continues all the way through the end of March. Each weekend, as the rivalries become more intense and the games have more at stake – winter is one step closer to being over.

Nelson: New Zealand’s Sunny Spot?

Nelson: New Zealand’s Sunny Spot?
If you visit New Zealand, either for the rugby or just for the country’s incredible outdoor scene, you’ll no doubt hear about or come across Nelson (map) at some point.  For one, it’s the closest town to New Zealand’s geographic center (though the large monument at the top of the hill is not the actual center, but more of a map marker). When you arrive in Nelson, you’ll be greeted with signs: Welcome to Sunny Nelson.  That’s because it is widely considered to...

Dragons and Roosters Ready to Rumble in Rugby League Grand Final

Dragons and Roosters Ready to Rumble in Rugby League Grand Final
rugby league purists may argue that it doesn’t matter who wins this Sunday’s NRL grand final, as for the first time in six years it’ll certainly go to a Sydney team. The city is the birthplace of rugby league, yet in recent years Brisbane and Melbourne have attempted to steal our thunder. Not so in 2010, where the St George Dragons from Kogarah will go head to head with those Sydney Roosters from the city’s eastern suburbs. The video referee awards a well deserved try Tickets...

Game Day in Dublin

Game Day in Dublin
An Irish friend recently told me that the only thing that gets him through the last couple months of winter is the 6 Nations rugby Tournament. Today is Game Day in Dublin – Ireland are playing Wales. Last year, Ireland defeated Wales in the last moments of the game to become 6 Nations Champions. While the game today doesn’t have the same stakes, I’d say the Welsh are eager to for a little bit of revenge for the 2009 season. The match today is being played at Croke Park, a massive...

RBS 6 Nations Rugby at Murrayfield Stadium
Hopefully if you’re a big rugby fan, you’ll know about the fantastic Official RBS 6 National rugby Website. Some of the games are played here in Edinburgh at Murrayfield Stadium.

There really aren’t enough pubs in this area of town, so if you’ve not got a ticket it’s best to stay in the centre. Areas like the Grassmarket, around Haymarket Station and the West...
