The IRB step in on Horwill

The IRB today confirmed to the ARU they intend to appeal the recent decision that cleared Wallaby Captain James Horwill of any wrongdoing in an alleged stomping incident which took place in the opening minutes of the first Test.

No defence for Brumbies' ploy

In recent times it seems my assertions and credibility have been attacked. Now I’m all for admitting that I am at times not entirely credible, being somewhat of a stirrer as well as someone who firmly believes that making a decision, even a bad one is usually preferable to making no decision at all.

The State of the (Rugby) Union address

I come before you in this quadrennial year of 2011 to advise on the state of our respective Unions and to speak of the coming festival of the Rugby World Cup. For those of you unaware of this event, you may perhaps be more familiar with the Southern colloquial name of Tri Nations Replay.

Maradonna school of Refereeing.

Really?

In rugby, the 'open-side' flanker is now king

Do the organizers consider if high performance athletes like breathing smoke for the first 20 min of a match?

Just glad I’m getting to watch this.
Seems the Programming Director at Setanta Asia has come back from a couple of weeks leave to realize that leaving he work experience kid in charge wasn’t such a good idea

Teams should have the option to not contest the scrum.
Nothing forces you to tackle a player with the ball, nor contest the ball on the ground, nor contest the lineout, why are scrums different?

The easy fix for scrums: Cut out the crap

You could pick almost any measure and come up with a similar stat for the Highlanders.

My fearless prediction is that this will be RG’s last match…..

Both BelN and Setanta are bundled on Asian Cable Networks.
BelN shows the Six Nations and Setanta has All Super Rugby, Aviva live and the NRL (live when no Rugby is on).

Just like Hunt, the NRC is off the hook

The way experienced and talented players have dropped off form and are quitting for France is evidence that he has totally lost the playing group IMHO.
They don;t look like players who want to be on the field. Slipper as Captain was a poor call.
Drop RG now and make Genia Captain/Coach.

Richard Graham is patient zero at the Reds

I’m going to go get very drunk.
