    Northern Hemishpere Rugby 2013

    Thought it would be a good idea to have a thread for general discussion of Northern Hemisphere rugby each year rather than having unrelated discussions in thread for specific tournaments like the 6Ns and HEC threads. To kick it off here's the Ireland training squad announced from next week's...

    An good/dumb? idea I had.

    I'm posting this here as maybe there is no appetite for this kind of thing in the community and as it would require official sanction by those who run G&GR. Anyway on with my idea. As a community on various threads we often discuss ways in which the game can be grown both around the world and...

    Heineken Cup 2013

    I wrote this guide a while back and I was going to post it on here a few weeks ago, but the Nevin Spence thing kinda dampened my enthusiasm for Rugby and I kept putting it off. Well the Heineken Cup gets underway today so here it is. I tried to update as much as I could but someone of the...

    Leicester Tigers tackle injuries using IBM analytics

    Thought this article was an interesting read. Obviously there are limitations to the application but if in the future a similar approach can keep the best players injury free for longer then it's a benefit to the whole game. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-17867961

    Ireland to play 3 tests in New Zealand (1 in Christchurch)

    Should be a good tour. Ireland seem to like beating whoever is the current WCs over the last 10 years. However the fact that we've still never beat the ABs will be a huge mental block. BoD should be back by then and hopefully some of the young tallent that's been waiting for a chance in green...

    Heineken European Cup 2012

    Looking forward to the 1st round of games starting this Friday. Will be cheering for all the Irish provices. Very interested to see how my team, Leinster, go expecially with BoD now out for about 6 months. Also wondering if the Welsh players can carry their WC form into this and make a real...
