Rugby telecasts in Jakarta

There was a pretty strong following in Jakarta for international rugby until recent changes in broadcasting rights meant this country (and much of the rest of South East Asia apparently) miss out on most of the big fixtures.

The current northern hemisphere tours by the All Blacks and Wallabies are not being screened on cable TV. At this stage, there are no arrangements in place for the screening of the 2011 Super 15, Tri-Nations and World Cup.

The good news is that enterprising souls at two bars in Jakarta have found a way to bring the big games to the punters.

Murphy's Irish Bar in Kemang and Everest in Blok M are both showing the Wallabies and All Blacks matches.

That's great news for rugby fans even if they can't enjoy the matches at home.
