That's what's happening with this World Cup. As pool play finishes and the going gets tougher at the Rugby World Cup, here is my list of the 15 biggest stories to have emer- ged from the tournament so far (in no particular order): 1. England captain Mike Tindall meets an old family friend and indulges in the Eng- lish equivalent of the hongi, rub- bing his nose in between her breasts. 2. Tindall s royal wife, Zara Phillips, rushes to New Zealand and heads for Dunedin (followed by a media posse), looking to either also catch up with the family friend or have a chat with her hubby, or both. 3. Tonga stuns France 19-14. 4. All Blacks kingpin Dan Carter is ruled out of the tourna- ment by a groin injury. 5. The Sean Fitzpatrick- Telecom no sex for the boys campaign, which lasted less than 24 hours. 6. The disaster of Auckland s transport on the tournament opening day, and the unseemly sight of politicians trying to turn the situation to their advantage. 7. New Zealand rugby boss Steve Tew s threat that the All Blacks may boycott the next World Cup if the money isn t shared better. 8. Jock Hobbs re-emergence after serious illness to present Richie McCaw with his 100th test cap, after the All Blacks- France game at Eden Park. 9. Samoan winger Alesana Tuilagi is fined $10,000 (!) for wearing the wrong brand of mouthguard. 10. England escape Inter- national Rugby Board punish- ment after two of their team cheat, illegally changing the ball for Jonny Wilkinson s goal kicks. 11. Ireland beats Australia 15-6. 12. The Adidas nightmare, when their All Black replica shirts were so over-priced (the retail stories were lucky to escape proper scrutiny on this one). 13. Wales gripping opening pool match with world cham- pions South Africa (won 17-16 by the relieved Springboks). 14. Sonny Bill Williams ripped shirt. Why did it rip, and what happened to it? 15. England rescue their World Cup hopes by holding off Scotland 16-12. What s interesting about the list is that it illustrates how much bigger than just a sports event the World Cup has become. Thinking back to the first tournament, in 1987, there was the drama of All Black captain Andy Dalton s injury, some fuss about money supposedly being earned by some leading New Zealand rugby identities through television advertising, and stories about Alan Jones forcing the Wallabies to train in the afternoon so he could do his radio show in the mornings. Otherwise, the major stories that emerged concerned what happened on the field. At an Olympic Games, every incident is magnified in newsworthiness. That s what s happening with this World Cup. Tew s outburst at the IRB would have had a much more minor impact if his comments had not been made when the world s rugby focus was on New Zealand. A few weeks before the World Cup, Samoa beat Australia, but it made only minor news. Upsets under the World Cup spotlight are inflated in their importance. Politicians and businessmen understand what the World Cup focus can do. Hence the undig- nified efforts of Adidas and Tele- com before the tournament, and the blatant attempt by Murray McCully to turn the Auckland transport fiasco to his political advantage.
