As I write the All Blacks are playing Wales and I am checking the latest score on line.
Sometimes I don't know why I bother doing this.
Sport has changed.
In the old days, when Colin was playing, they played test matches in the afternoon. If you wanted to follow the game, you got up in the middle of the night and listened to it on the radio.
Then live (and delayed) TV came along. Soon after rugby was put onto pay TV and it all became about money.
I was reading that Ireland evidently lost hosting the world cup (after the Japan one) to France. Someone hinted that both Japan and France had made it worthwhile for the rugby union bosses.
I think that having a world cup in Ireland would have been great.
It's a real shame if money got in the way.If Wales pull off a win today, life will go on.
I'll check on the score shortly.
