The penultimate round of the National Rugby Championship is upon us, and by my count, three of the four games can have some degree of bearing on the top four and the potential playoff combatants.
Now that the Wallabies have ended England’s Rugby World Cup, all focus rightly turns toward Wales, with top spot in Pool A – and the easier side of the knockout draw – the prize for the victors.
Social media is a funny beast. It’s hard to know what, if any, part our #ScrumStraightJoe campaign from last week played in the Wallabies exceptional 33-13 Rugby World Cup win over England at Twickenham, but it’s certain that the Wallabies’ scrum did a job on their opposition.
It’s probably the biggest game of the Rugby World Cup so far. It’s the game that will have massive implications for its pool, and will almost certainly mean the loser won’t have to worry about hotel bookings for the week of the quarter finals.
Things are getting serious in the National Rugby Championship with just three rounds remaining. Brisbane City and Uni of Canberra look safe – they are playing for top spot and hosting rights in the finals from here – with a mouth-watering Round 8 showdown looming.
The movement for positivity launched in the run-up to the Rugby World Cup by our fair editor was good to be part of, was great fun, and generally speaking was received and consumed with the right intent.
