Rugby World Cup: The total mismatch

With ESPN trying to stuff the Rugby World Cup down Asia's throats, this may come as a bit of a surprise but there is another World Cup going on.

The Women's World Cup competition is under way in China right now. Yes, most Singaporeans will go, "Oh, it's women football." This will be followed by giggles, laughter etc. But will it be worse than seeing the All Blacks winning by 60+ points? I don't think so.

The Rugby World Cup has been a total bore for me. New Zealand win by 60+, the Aussies win by 50+, it's a total mismatch! Even when England win by 28 points against the U.S.A, they were considered poor!

I'm not a fan of rugby but why are these teams even in the World Cup? Give me women football; maybe the matches will be closer!
