Agree, thought there might have been more love there.

Super Rugby Week 5: The Force is strong with this one

Yes, I think we just realised we wanted more quite frankly, to be more useful.

The Wrap: The patience of rugby players and fans is about to be rewarded

Definitely the talking irritates me more, but then reinforced when the names pop up, adding to the overall irritant mix.

What a horrible comparison to make Wal.

Anyway, we are the wingers of the forward pack, proven finishers, so good, only need one of us.

Hi Soap,

Wouldn’t have thought so but we will see how it is interpreted, my assumption would be to face towards your own, pass etc but will be interesting to see, typical of rugby laws with a broad interpretation.

Hey Soap, link to a Herald article

Law variations on both sides of the ditch with a common goal in mind

Thank you Brett.

After switching off sport for nearly two months with other priorities in life it sure is good to feel that excitement and anticipation flowing back and with the subsequent news of moving to level 1 and some good ticket sales for this weekend all adds to the flavour.

In terms of some of the proposed variations, kicking is a no from me, golden point feels a bit too gimmicky and the red card replacement doesn’t feel right to me though Highlander makes a good point above re ref moderation.

I am however looking forward to seeing the breakdown variations in play, in particular the emphasis on the ball carrier (always been a bug bear of mine) and rolling east to west, hopefully we see a positive result 👍

Just hope we don’t have too many overly officious games first up while teams and refs adjust given the lack of warm ups

Is it Saturday yet? 🏉

Why the trans-Tasman bubble must include rugby

High quality side 👍

A guide to the various sub-species of the forward pack

Potentially, I really don’t know but it can tend to be that non union end up with the same that’s negotiated for a collective, albeit usually with time delays, assuming that the opportunity to negotiate for yourself is not available.

Speculation on my part as it would be the only reason I can think of where I would stand down myself in a similar situation.

Reds trio refuse to take pay cut, stood down by QRU

They are definitely RUPA members? (unsure if it is compulsory)

Absolutely tragic, such a high quality player.
