When it comes to world sports, few sports can get both the crowd and players riled up like a good game of rugby. And this is a perfect time for all the fans as the Rugby World Cup is coming around for the first time since 2007. When it comes to a high-energy game, why shouldn’t your ads be high energy too?
Guinness has come out with an ad that captures all the energy of rugby just in time for the World Cup. When twenty teams compete for fame and glory, you know that only one can stand victorious at the end. Guinness gets that in this new ad featuring medieval warriors playing a version of the greatest game in the world and knowing the battlefield will only be won with the blood, sweat and tears of teams of men who compete on the field. Whether you’re rooting for England, Scotland, the All Blacks or even underdogs like USA Rugby, the right ad and the right beer can give you the right energy for the game.
Pain is temporary. Glory is forever. And this ad is proof positive of that. When the one rugby team that will emerge victorious is there after weeks of competition, you know they won’t feel any pain at all. You could go with other kinds of beer, but then again, you could also put 15 pounds of padding on the players and call them American Football players. Some are made of more, and just like the one man who risks everything and does amazing feats to plant the black flag on the ground in the Guinness ad, one team will stand on top of the mountain as the 2011 Rugby World Cup champion. When that happens, raise a pint of Guinness and say “There’s my team!”, while savouring the taste of the draught beer.
Twenty will enter, one will leave with the Cup, and while you’re watching every single game, you’re going to want a draught that screams “RUGBY IS KING” and that’s why you’re going to want a Guinness. Don’t settle for less. The game deserves more, and so do the fans.
Starting on August 26 and rugby lovers of video games are in luck. Sebastien Chabal, Jonah Lomu, and many other stars of international rugby will meet in the official game will come in summer for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
This year marks the seventh edition of Rugby World Cup, a competition that is played every four years since it started its journey in 1987. New Zealand was the country chosen by the federation and HB Studios with 505 Games have developed the official video game of the competition.
This is the first game of the sport in this type of game consoles, so its creators have taken pains in getting the most realistic result. As suggested by the developers, have tried to develop “a game that reflects the prestige of the third largest sporting event in the world taking full advantage of the opportunities available hardware.
Players can enjoy this noble sport in either individual and local multiplayer. It is also possible to play online by choosing a country and trying to beat other players via Xbox Live or PlayStation Network.
As explained Alastair Jarvis, managing director of HB Studios, “attention to detail in both the visual quality of the game as the gameplay is unbeatable. Captures the passion and excitement of the Rugby World Cup in a way that was not been achieved before.”
Until August 26 we can not verify whether the claims are true Jarvis, almost a month before the start of the actual event at the stadiums in New Zealand.

Daniel Carter could play as the first center in the match against South Africa next date for the Tri-Nations, having coached there in a revamped defensive line for the All Blacks in Christchurch.

The purpose of rugby is to introduce a water balloon filled with a heavy material that prevents that float in the opposing goal. This is a sort of basketball goal located at the bottom of the pool to a depth of between 3.5 and 5 meters. The field of play, which is set using a standard pool float , occupies an area of between 12 and 18 feet long and 8 to 12 wide. The game is played by two teams of 11 players each, six of which must always be in the water.
The other five are reserves that are replacing their peers throughout the match without asking permission from the three referees. Two of them are equipped with scuba gear to stay underwater the duration of the match, two periods of 15 minutes with a break of five-and the third arbitrator from the surface monitors compliance with the rules, which prevent stroking the players without the ball.
