    Sydney CBDs new Drinking Laws

    I’d be interested to hear people’s opinions on the new laws announced today by Barry O’Farrell to try and combat the 0.01% of people ruining everyone else’s nights out. The main points of the new laws are: . Lock outs at 1.30am, closing at 3am for all pubs and clubs in CBD/Kings...

    New French TV Deal - Implications for Rugby as a whole

    I was going to post this on the Northern Hemisphere thread but thought it affects SANZAR rugby as much as it affect us up norf'. Overnight the French Top 14 confirmed their TV deal for the next 5 years, it has gone up from 31M Euros to 70M Euros (ish). The breakdown per year is below: Season...

    Ireland Samoa 9th November

    The new era is here for Ireland, Joe Schmidts & John Plumtrees first game in charge and it is a potential banana skin. Ireland are sweating on the fitness of Sexton, POC, Cian Healy and Sean O'Brien. Schmidt hasn't chosen a captain for the series yet either. Ireland's international form has been...

    Gym Advice

    To cut a long story short I'm intent on resuming my rugby career next year, yes the bar takings will take a hit but I'm trying to get into shape and I need a goal to work towards. I've never really been a gym person and would struggle to name most of the machines that my gym has however I've...

    Eddie McGuire - Fox Footy

    After all the unsavoury incidents that have occurred in AFL this week I just have one observation, how can the AFL have this man as their front man when he is under investigation by the aforementioned AFL for racial vilification? Admittedly I only have a passing interest in AFL because the...

    B&I Lions v Barbarians, Hong Kong, Sat 1st June, 9:30pm AEST

    First match of tour kicks off on Saturday, purely a money making exercise to please their sponsors I'd have preferred the Lions to have a game against an Indigenous XV or something along those lines to kick off a tour. Given there are no Leinster, Leicester or Ulster players involved expect to...

    Waratahs Crusaders Friday 31st May 5:40pm AEST

    The Tahs bubble burst in meek fashion on Friday night, they couldn't cope with the Rebels at the breakdown and the pack looked tired after some huge efforts over previous weeks. The Tahs still have the slimmest of slim chances of making the finals but they will rue the 3 points that they lost in...

    Waratahs v. Kings Round 12 Sunday 1am EST

    With the Tahs out of finals running now is this a chance to blood some of the fringe players taken on tour? Personally I think its time McKibben was dropped and Lucas given a shot but can't see Cheika doing that. Other than that wouldn't make too many changes to the team that took on the Bulls...

    Waratahs Blues Sunday 24th March, SFS

    After an improved but not perfect performance against the Cheetahs would you make any changes to the side? Will BB be fit for this one? Personally I'd keep the pack the same, move Folau to 13, AAC (Adam Ashley-Cooper) to 15 and Horne at 12 if BB is injured.

    5 second "use it" law modification

    Having watched the first few rounds of Super rugby and this weekends 6 nations games am I the only person a bit miffed about this rule? When the ball is slow coming from the ruck the referee calls use it after 5 seconds then proceeds to give the attacking team about another 5 seconds to play the...
