As we head into the 2017 season down this part of the world, The great unknown is how the new World Rugby-prescribed tackle laws are going to play out.
Why just win a game comfortably, when you can confuse the hell out of everyone? I’ve always said the best kind of finishes are the ones where the opposition also think they’ve won, and that’s the kind of new innovation the BBL brought us this week.
We’re now three games into the really intriguing stage of the Big Bash League season: the part where teams are forced to cover for their Australian representatives.
It’s suddenly getting toward that time of year again, and looking at squads for an Australian Super Rugby teams magazine preview over the weekend gave reason to think about what I want to see from our sides.
It wasn’t quite the championship block of games, but it was an important block for a number of teams as they made their move heading into the last 12 games before the semis.
“Would you rather an opener who can make a hundred in a session, or can bat through a day?”
