Watching the All Blacks go through the paces against Argentina on Sunday in La Plata, this column was reminded (for those who don’t know) Samoa has beaten Argentina three times in four Test matches, including a 28-12 drubbing in Buenos Aires in 2005.
London 2012 is certainly missing something. Despite organizers efforts to wrap up with a bang closing ceremony, the games sort of fizzled out the last few days.
A strong appeal by South Africa to add a sixth Super Rugby team perhaps opens a window to again push for a Samoan rugby franchise.
There was once a time when nearly the whole Manu Samoa team played Super Rugby.
Vulgar center Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu’s post-game tweets may be, he is absolutely correct.
The make-up and leadership of the International Rugby Board has for a long time now, not been representative of the needs of the wider rugby world. Yet the IRB is supposed to be proactive in promoting rugby worldwide.
