I look forward eagerly each year to this rugby union tournament. You can forget about the World Cup, this series determines which team is the best in the world. New Zealand, Australia and South Africa play a series of matches against one another both home and away. There are nine matches in total to be played over the next nine weeks, with each team playing six matches. http://www.trinationsweb.com/fixtures/2008.asp Each one will be a bruising encounter with no quarter asked for or given. Every tackle is made as though a life depended on it. There is simply no other spectacle in team sport to quite match it. There is also tremendous national pride resting on the outcome of this event.
