Fox Sports International has the most comprehensive rugby coverage in North America.  They showed every Super12, Tri Nations and Six Nations match, and I assume they'll show most of the World Cup.

He listened and heard my cry.
He lifted me up out of the pits, out of the miry clay.
He set my feet upon a rock and made my footsteps firm.
     --Psalm 40
