Hi,
So when I first played rugby what is now fifty years ago, I even had a rugby shirt :)
Only two things I learnt, pass the bass backwards and when the ball is placed into scrum it had to go central and straight.
Today the ball is simply passed to your side, what's the point of that, all that huffing and puffing and seconds later the ball is gone down the line of your men in the field.
If You Don't Try You Don't Do.....Don't Do You Don't Get...I'm Still Trying....Well Very..

Cymru am byth, our boys won again, I expect we shall beat Japan in the final, economically that would be a good r€$ult :?
The tournament is spread over weeks, I heard that players need a week to recover after a game, is that true?

Wheelie bin with water and ice for as long as you can bear helps. I've heard some last half an hour! It's certainly a tough game at international level.

As to time I think England had or still has a 4 day turnaround. Rather them!

Hi,
"Rugby World magazine’s letters inbox receives more emails about this topic than anything else! So it’s little surprise that World Rugby introduced a law amendment surrounding the scrum put-in for the 2017-18 season.

I think you'll find that Wales are (probably) playing France.

Thanks for the wisecrack,but assuming Wales scrape through against France,England will meet them once they despatch Oz.

I know now, having read why the rules have changed, that it will still annoy me :evil:

Live sport?
Live music?

What's the difference ................. as advertised?
One isn't live, and the other one is.

Why do they call it live sport when it's on a screen remote from the actual live sport?
