MAIN EVENT Super 15s

It is no secret that Aussies love their rugby as much as they love a beer, so put the two together and they’re close to heaven. The Rugby Super 15 2012 season kicks off on February 24 with the first six teams playing on their home turf against their own countrymen. Games will be played all over New Zealand, South Africa and most importantly Australia, so there is no excuse not to grab some mates and check out a live game in either Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Brisbane or Perth. Otherwise, it is just as acceptable to watch on your local pub screen for free, but make sure you remember that beer. Further info at
