Re: IRB World Rankings

Always interesting to see them in a list, but they mean nothing really. You win nothing for a place in the rankings. Mostly true, except for when the seedings for the RWC are being decided. Doing that seeding so far out from the competition itself makes it a lottery as to whether the groups make se...

Re: Sabre-rattling from Premiership Rugby again ...

The Rabo has built from a very low base into something that is far more substantial. It's rapidly building towards something sustainable and it's impact has been felt on Irish and Italian rugby very strongly. It's going in the right direction too and has huge potential. Sure I’ll accept that we've ...

It's a relief to see some of the comments on the articles in the British newspaper websites. I can't help but feel the pr battle is being won by the PRL. All the main British newspapers seem to just rehash a media release by the PRL with no analysis of the content. All very admirable by the Unions n...

A few contributors on the Guardian website linking the actions of the English/French clubs to close down the ERC so that all contracts would be then gone.

Maybe I missed mutterings from the RFU coming through but someone quotes the Guardian rugby e-mail stating: It is hard to see, at this stage, with attempts at mediation looking doomed to failure, how there can be a solution without the winding up of ERC. The RFU is exploring if there is a possibilit...
