Continuing from the previous discussion, therein, lies the point, they are playing both games. We shouldn't write them off just because they also play league. We should see it as a positive that 4 of the best 15s league schoolboys in the country also play rugby. Now, which game will actively engage these boys and provide opportunities to position themselves as the best pathway option post-school? Hopefully, rugby maintains their interest and acitvely pursues thempity they're playing the wrong game...
if the SOO last night is any guide, they're in for a professional football life described by Thomas Hobbes - "nasty, brutish and short".
If that was a proper rugby game, there would have been multiple red cards.
Is that more an inditement of the ridiculous state of rugby's red card laws, or the brutality unchecked in Origin? What Rugby wouldn't give for the interest and eyeballs SOO generates.
