Excitement reaching fever pitch.....

Yep, just printed my boarding pass for Cardiff, and could scarcely click the mouse button with excitement. Can't wait, regardless of the now customary England (or GB) shambles dampener.

It'll be great! Nothing gives me a buzz like England (or GB) versus Australia.

 

Last RWC, England were pants, but it was still a brilliant tournament with great matches all over the place. This time, it'll be even better. B)

Can't wait. Two hours time we'll be picking our eldest up from college and heading on down to Cardiff. Very, very excited now. Especially now I've seen a couple of pixies of the opening ceremony. Looks great.

I'm that bad I'm watching highlights of the RLWC '08 on the bbc website.

I just watched the NZ one where we lost from being 24-8 up, did Gleeson play halfback in that game, he was wearing 6 and scored and awesome try through the middle?

Don't forget your passports and enjoy the delights of Cardiff. Don't forget from about 6pm 20000 valley girls will invade and that's more terrifying then the Aussies! Also noticed today that the rugby shop opposite Cardiff castle has a great window display - that kiwi shirt is a beauty and are selling welsh shirts and kangaroo shirts. But not England ones although you can get a giant inflatable rlwc steeden ball!

I'm not an early bird at all, but I was wide awake before 7am ready for our journey from Warrington to Swansea.

 

Now I'm here and even more excited!

 

By the way, it's cold, wet and windy!

I am most jealous of you all! I shall have to make do with staying up into the wee hours here in Aus to watch it.

Which in itself takes some master planning as I have to be careful not to drink too much earlier in the evening so that I don't fall asleep on the sofa and wake up at 2am when it's all over....something I have managed to do on several occasions.

I hope the day lives up to everyone's expectations...I'm sure it will. To all those who are going....enjoy every minute.

And C'mon England!

Got my beer and 3 backup tv's in each room in case of any problems.

 

That, and if we have a local blackout, Wests Illawarra leagues club is open till 6am and it's only 10mins away, everything is under control.

My next door neighbour is taping it and we're going to watch "live" at 7am.

Can't wait - I'm far more jittery about this tournament than I am about my upcoming knee surgery....

C'mon England :-)
