    Hurricanes are F U C K E D Reds by 30+ Highlanders 2016 2.0 - Kerevi and Pauaia are going to slaughter this unseasoned Hurricanes center pairing. I heard those clowns even have a kid playing at 15? Karmichael is going to hit him so hard he wakes up thinking and playing like he's the only son...

    Yellow Cards and Gold Jerseys

    In 2016 the Wallabies have received 11 yellow cards while their opposition have received a total of 3. I think this is worth chewing on. Are we getting hard-done by the entirety of the World Rugby international refereeing cadre or is this just deserts for the ill discipline shown in the past...

    John Mitchell Hired as USA Rugby Men's Eagles Head Coach

    I don't see this ending well. Tolkin's lack of emotional maturity and man-management skills was one of the worst aspects of his tenure.

    Big Boots

    You know what the say about big boots..they can kick the ball fuckin' far. So why is it that guys like Mogg, White, and others can smash the ball significantly further than other players? This is a question I've never really been able to get a straight answer on. Is it leg strength, technique...

It got me thinking about some of the stuff I've done on the field and the potential legality of it. As a kid I played a good amount of sports but Folk-style Wrestling was far...

    The ARU Laundry List

    The front page piece and ensuing discussion today about the most recent ARU top-up fiasco got me thinking about the ARU more than I usually like to. Specifically, it got me thinking about what other things the ARU has on it's plate right now so I decided to start running off a list. Would...
