Brazil tipped to win Rugby World Cup

A survey reported in the Guardian reveals the UK' grasp of Rugby's essentials.

Fewer than a quarter surveyed knew how many players make up a rugby team.

10% thought a "hooker" is a woman who sleeps with rugby players.

But my favourite finding is that a significant number surveyed predicted this year's Rugby World Cup title would go to Brazil.

Interestingly, Brazil have got a national rugby team. Portuguese isn't my strong point. I couldn't find any photos for the "Equipe Brasileira Rugby" other than the one above. It is captioned as "Natasha Olsen, Paula Ishibashi e Mácia Müller, da equipe brasileira de rugby".
