The low down from those in the know
Four questions I want answered in Round 10

Sitting down to put the tipping panel together was the first chance I had to look at games this weekend, and doesn’t it loom as a really entertaining round?

Super Rugby Round 10: Upset week

Well, I wanted harder games to pick last week, and we’ve got them this week – whether we wanted them or not. I genuinely think six of the eight games could go either way, and this might be the round where a mid or lower-table team make their mark.

Do the Lions know how to beat a New Zealand rugby team?

It doesn’t happen very often in the modern professional era. The New Zealand All Blacks have only lost one match (against Ireland in Chicago) in fourteen since the 2015 World Cup.

It’s crisis time for the worst-ever Waratahs and their overpaid stars

At half-time during the Hurricanes–Brumbies match, I was contemplating that for once I could write a positive article about the state of rugby in Australia. Something with this heading, perhaps: “Come back coach Stephen Larkham, all is forgiven.”

The Wrap: Two points rocket Rebels up Australian conference ladder

The state of Australian rugby is such that two log points, like the ones gained by the Rebels for their unlikely 9-9 draw against the Sharks, go a long way – the closeness of the Australian conference is at least providing an edge that the quality of the rugby currently doesn’t.

Strengthening the NRC for rugby’s future

It is difficult to see exactly how the current Super teams saga will end, but no matter which team is cut or however the various potential legal battles play out, it is looking fairly certain that Australian rugby will be involved with Super Rugby until at least the end of 2020.

What happened to my rugby?

It’s a wee while since I last played rugby. That was when it was a game enjoyed by players from the Extra Fifths from Wee Wah Wollongong, right up to the gods who were selected to play for my country (Scotland as it happens) against other fabulous gods from other countries.
