In the Rugby World Cup opener, host New Zealand's All Blacks kick off against Tongo. A great sport. On tape delay Sunday (believe 1 pm ET), NBC will broadcast the US opener against favored Ireland. USA Rugby's Eagles are a decided underdog, but have been improving and could benefit from some agile, ex-gridders switching over to rugby post-college careers. In the absence of massive US upsets and a World Cup title, anyone but Australia.
