The Rugby World Cup is indeed heating up and the semifinals, with some of the usual heavyweights, are in store for us this autumnal weekend. We will be showing both matches downstairs in the Katz & Maus Bar this Saturday and Sunday at 5pm.

Last weekend in the quarterfinals there were a few surprises: Argentina rightfully defeat an injury-stricken Irish team (sigh), and Scotland put up an amazing fight against Australia who won in the last minute with a penalty.

For the semifinals, we mostly have the usual suspects competing. New Zealand will play South Africa on Saturday, and Argentina will play Australia on Sunday, all for a place in the final.

Come by the Katz & Maus Bar at the hostel and cheer on your favourite team, and be careful who you’re supporting, we’re guaranteed to have a variety of fans!
