Rugby World Cup 2011

The Rugby World Cup 2011 started yesterday in New Zealand and runs through to October 23 which overlaps our trip to Scotland. The Scots love their rugby so the pubs should be jumpin’.

Canada is in Pool A with New Zealand, France, Japan and Tonga.

Scotland is in Pool B with Argentina, England, Georgia, and Romania.

Scotland’s match with England is Saturday, Oct 1, at 20:30 NZ which is GMT +12 = 08:30 as we are arriving in the UK.

Canada’s match with New Zealand is Sunday, Oct 2, at 15:30 NZ which is GMT +12 = 03:30 Sunday morning when we are still in Edinburgh.  We move to St. Andrews on that day.  Maybe there will be a replay that night on the Dunvegan Pub’s “tele”.

The 2nd round of group winners versus runner-ups occurs on Saturday and Sunday morning, Oct 8 & 9, when we are in Inverness and playing Castle Stuart.
