G7 U1 International Games – Rugby World Cup assignment.
Due Date:- Thursday 22nd September 2011
1. Watch at least one half of a game from the Rugby World Cup (Schedule).
Which game(s) did I watch? Wales vs Samoa
2 Write a brief introductory paragraph (about 4 sentences) starting with “The aim of Rugby Union is to make people come together through sport. There is a place for everyone no matter what age or gender. Everyone can join in and play together. The Rugby Union also tries to ensure that everyone fully understands the rules while playing and that no fights break out. ”
- The world cup running at the moment in New Zealand is the game of Rugby Union. Briefly (no more than 4 sentences) describe the difference between Rugby Union and Rugby League.
The difference between Rugby Union and Rugby League is that the rules are different and the teams play in different leagues/competitions. They also play on different pitches. It is said that Rugby League is a more fast paced and spectator friendly sport.
- List the teams who have won the RWC in its entire history.
New Zealand national rugby team
Australia national rugby team
South Africa national rugby team
England national rugby team
- Choose one of the following to explain in detail: Knock on, Offside, Scrum, Line Out or Hooker.
A Scrum happens when the ball goes out of play of after an accidental infringement. The eight forwards from each team form together and push against the other team. The ball is fed from the scrum-half from the team that has been given the possession. The ball must be fed down the tunnel so that the ball comes out of the end of the scrum.
- In brief (no more than 4 sentences), explain where Rugby Union originated and how a pacific island nation came upon it.
It is often said that rugby originated at Rugby School, England, when William Webb Ellis ran with the ball in his hand. Th RWC trophy is named after William Webb Ellis. Most pacific islands were introduced to rugby by British service personnel.
- What examples of Internationalism are evident throughout the RWC?
At the beginning of each match both teams anthems are sung. More than one rugby team come to play together in the world cup even though they don’t speak the same language; they communicate with sport.
- Identify an occasion in the RWC where an opportunity to learn about another culture was evident.
At the opening ceremony traditional New Zealand dancers performed a dance. Also at the beginning of every New Zealand or a pacific island nation match the team players perform the Haka.
- Give evidence of an occasion in the RWC where two or more communities have come together in good spirit?
At the end of the Wales vs. Samoa match I saw both teams shaking hands and congratulating each other. Both teams team captains were interviewed and they both said that the other team worked very hard and that they had a good match.
- Millions of dollars are spent on this event. Do you think it was money well spent? Yes/No, Why/Why Not
Some of the money was well spent, because it brought different countries together. By doing that you would achieve peace. But a lot of the money was spent on advertisements and people interested in selling their products. I think that that portion of the money could have been spent on something better like poor people in Africa, or the victims up in Tohoku (Japan). There are more important things than just making money.
