Ron's comments: Kudos to the http://www.rugbyworldcup.com for excellent sharing of the 2015 Rugby World Cup. News in multiple languages. Live audio during matches. Curated tweets in the match centre. 3 minutes of match highlights within minutes after the game. This is world class. The only thing missing from the app is some type of time conversion for the match calendar.

Compared to other sports sites, Rugby World Cup provides more ways to follow, connect and share news. Live audio is a step above we-charge for everything http://NFL.com but not as multi-sourced as http://www.afl.com.au

For those in the US, sadly the Rugby World Cup so far just a blip on U.S. media radar. Difficult to bet on (or view!) in Las Vegas.
