Surviving the Rugby World Cup

A very amusing article by NZPA on how partners of rugby supporters can survive the Rigby World Cup season.  Has ten survivial tips including:

2. Three minutes to fulltime, the score tied, with a drop-kick all that’s standing between the All Blacks winning … it’s not the time to ask whether you should go to his parents for Christmas or yours.

9. Accept you will attend social gatherings, which do not revolve around rugby, by yourself until the tournament is over. This includes anything involving births, deaths and marriages. And do not invite your rugby-hating friends around to the house while the games are on, especially if they have children.

What I find most amusing is that the author of the article is in fact a huge “rugby nut” herself.
