Two questions for those in Pomerania
November 15, 2012, 15:18:44

Firstly, having played golf in the Highlands in October, I know how rough the weather can be. What's the prognosis on Saturday for balmy Edinburgh?

 

Secondly, I watch these games on a Satellite feed. But finding the channel is sometimes a challenge. Will this game be carried on Sky and if so, on what channel?

That game, like the one against Ireland is on BBC, Moz. I do not know which feeds you watch on, but I use any of these:

www.lshunter.tv/rugby-live-streaming-video.html

 

www.vipbox.tv/

 

 

The weather can be found here:

 

www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/uk/dg/edinburgh_forecast_weather.html

 

You will note that it only has the hourly breakdown for today and tomorrow. The one for Saturday should be available on Friday.

Thanks for the info.  A few years back I went to Murrayfield to see the Boks playing the scots and the conditions were much the same as it is forecasted for Saturday.   Playing conditions were OK -so it may be an interesting match not hampered by weather conditions.

Agreed very bad weather can ruin a game as it becomes a lottery. 

Have you ever played golf at Clovelly Moz or Milnerton. Your cart blows over and I have seen some drives landing 30 or so meters forward. You have to learn to hit low punchy shots. No fun on days like that.

Hasbeen, when I was a student back in the Cretaceous period, I played in the Clovelly Open in a flat out black South Easter. Getting your drive over the rough on the first hole was a challenge. But not as bad as the wind I encountered at Royal Aberdeen.....it literally made it hard to start the backswing.

 

Vlag, thanks for that information. Getting the feed is always an adventure....sometimes I end up watch the game in Italian. It's amusing to hear all that Latin passion pouring out, while not understanding a word they are saying.

The game that Me and ol' Mickey were on about was in Spanish, from what I could get. Could also have been Porra, but that is when you physically download the games. LOL. LS Hunter and Vipbox always have a number of links to feeds with English commentary. Having said that, it is sometimes better to have no commentary at allm because the commentary, especially from Supersport is normally so crap, that you are better off without it.

the better team should always win regardless of the weather, but the poor weather does make the job a bit more difficult for the stronger team, especially the Boks who both dont travel well and dont play as good as they usually do in poor conditions, but even with all those factors, the Boks should be too strong.
