Rugby World Cup - where is best to watch England matches?

Postby RDD » Wed, 31 Aug 2011 9:50 am

I'm new in Singapore so not sure where the best spot to watch the England RWC games will be when the tournament kicks off in a few days. Does anyone know where the English Rugby fans will go to watch matches?

Thanks!

Boat Quay, Clarke Quay, Chijmes etc. They all have big screens and I would have thought will be showing the matches, on at least one of the screens, if they doesn't clash with the football.....

Thanks, Billy B, but I was really looking for names of specific bars for England fans.

There was a interesting article on expatliving.sg about generally watching the RWC if anyone else is interested:

Looks like you've find a few other options!! I don't think there are many 'England' bars per se. You'll usually find quite a mix of different supporters in most of the bars above and also the ones in the article.

There isn't the same sort of intense rivalry/hatred towards other teams as there is back home, so it's quite amicable when watching sport on TV in a bar etc, and usually you'll get a bit of banter flying round.

Your're right! Rugby fans don't tend to get as annoyingly patriotic as football fans. It should be a good atmosphere anywhere we go. I also plan on supporting the Welsh, Scots and Irish too. And the Aussies and the Kiwis. And maybe Japan too. It's going to be a busy few weeks!

For neutral will be good to head to boulevard at millenia walk or red dot museum ... lots of executive heading there after work to watch..... great atmosphere and loud commentary unlike other places....
