    Injury recovery

    Last year I did my ACL playing on the wing in a fourth division subbies game (two weeks before my wedding) because I'm an elite athlete and that just comes with the territory.

    Folau re-signing

    Couldn't find a better place to put this (if there's a general re-signing/positivity thread, feel free to chuck it in there). My sources are saying Folau has re-signed for three more years (to the Tahs with a Japan sabbatical option). Can anyone confirm?

For the sake of not starting a shit fight, and for an example of a much bigger culprit, England (Tuilagi, Waldrom etc.) might be a...

    Rugby expansion

    After listening to the podcast interview with Greg Peters, particularly what he had to say about super expansion into North America (with value added by a really great long comment by an American bloke in the comments section below), I just wanted to throw up a thread to see what people thought...

    French rugby destinations

    I'm heading overseas for six-and-a-bit months, including a stint in France in September which is during the Top 14 season. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations of good places to catch a game. I'm travelling with the missus, so some places like Toulouse (which I hear is a bit...

    Greatest rugby articles (with a Welsh example)

    There is probably a thread for this topic somewhere else on the forum, so if appropriate, please merge this thread with that. I read this article on gwlad this morning. For those who haven't heard of gwlad, it's the Welsh equivalent of GAGR - I thought I would check it out to see how they...
