As the Rugby World Cup narrows down to the final few teams, the English team has a special supporter on its side: A maturing English cheddar cheese named Wedginald.
The folks at West Country Farmhouse Cheesemakers have a live webcam focused on the cheese at www.cheddarvision.tv. On Friday, they adorned Wedginald with an England rugby ball.
The match result: A 12-10 win for England over Australia in the quarterfinals.
In other results, France shocked New Zealand's All Blacks 20-18, while Argentina defeated Scotland 19-13, and South Africa beat Fiji 37-20.
Next weekend, the two Southern Hemisphere teams will face off, while the two Six Nations rivals will play in the other semi-final.
Wedginald can't wait.
