Rugby on

Random again, but I'm a huge Rugby fan b/c my dad used to play internationally when he lived in Qatar (he's gonna love me for mentioning that).

ESPN just announced its plans to give the sport more of a presence on In order to accomplish this, they recently purchased, which currently provides rugby news, scores, and other info about the sport. I assume this means they'll integrate the content from that site into's main site. I'm glad ESPN is taking an interest in international sports that might not be as popular in the US. They have also taken steps to expand upon Cricket (by purchasing and Soccer (launching foreign language websites for the sport). All of this helps make ESPN more of a world superpower when it comes to Sports and not just an American phenomenon.
