Wallabies Take on England

While we're getting ready for our opening game of the season, at the other end of the world, the Rugby World Cup Final will be played between Australia and England. Australia is the defending World Cup champion, and will be hosting the final. England have been playing the better rugby lately, and are slight favorites.

The United States fielded a team in this World Cup, and performed respectably. We opened with Fiji, where we missed victory by a single point, falling 19-18. Scotland (one of the world powers) crushed us, 39-15, but we bounced back to beat Japan 39-26 before falling to France 41-14.

The Finals will be broadcast live in the United States at 4AM EST.
