Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope!
Okay, cheesy, but I was hoping the importance of my dilemma would come through.
I've noticed a lot of people on the forum state they are from or live in the UK and other parts of Europe, and a few from Australia, too, so I was hoping a few of you could offer some opinions.
Growing up in the southern USA, the sports we watched and played were (American) football, baseball, basketball, etc. Only recently have I "discovered" the totally fascinating and awesome sport of Rugby. Yes, it has been played on the collegiate level in certain areas of the country all along, but it has basically remained unknown to all but a select few.
Recently I have signed up for a new package with my satellite company which offers a couple of channels where I can now watch rugby! As with other sports, I find it more enjoyable if I can follow the progress of and "root" for a specific team. Usually with professional sports we pick these teams based on geography, or sometimes because of a particular personality we like, or because of some athlete who attended our alma mater. However, none of this is applicable to me because it seems like nobody within 2000 miles of me plays Rugby, nor did my school have a rugby team.
So, therefore, I'm wanting YOU to to help me out and tell me which team or teams I should root for, and why. The matches most frequently televised here are the Magners League, LV Cup, and Super Rugby.
