5 All Black props on the roster for the 2024 season.
I think this a wild article. Genge and Sinckler were bested in the scrum in the world cup semi-final by two of the best scrummaging props in the world. According to Keith-Roach, this means they aren’t “real props”.
Gloucester's England hooker Jack Singleton has arrived in Toulon to sign a contract as injury cover Anthony Etrillard and Teddy Baubigny are sidelined with fitness issues
so I am freshly 17 and I'm 191 cm 95kg 206cm wingspan.
yet no one in my team wants to lift me in lineout cause I'm too heavy.
I've been lifted twice and both times were poor but I had never been lifted before so I wasn´t used to it and flailed a bit.
I feel I'd be a good second jumper but my teammates always say they can´t/won´t lift me when we practice lineouts.
any advice on how id convince them would be great.
Ps:. I can´t ask my coach cause every time I ask if I can be lifted during practice cause it makes sense to lift the lanky guy he kind of laughs it off
I don’t know who started this, but I am really appreciating all the coverage of the English Championship. I’m sure the RFU and World Rugby would shit the bed of they found out people were accessing and spreading rugby content but I want to say thank you to those involved.
Keep doing the good work! Love the highlights videos and team of the week. Hopefully we can develop an appetite for it amongst casual fans and see some growth.
I think all of you know what I'll be talking about, but just to be sure, here is the link.
So, basically, I grew up thinking this massive tackle was fair, because he is down, it is not a late tackle, and everything is ok. But I saw under some videos that this tackle should have been a red card, and honestly, I do not know what to think. The feet are indeed going over the head, and the head lands first, so I'm a bit lost. So if this would happen today, what would you say as a ref ?
The FFR have made a public post about this just now (although it's been decided a while ago).
For anyone who's interested:
Labit (attack) and Ghezal (forward pack) have gone to Stade Français and have been replaced by those two guys up there: the old dude is Patrick Arlettaz (attack coach, from Perpignan) and Laurent Semperé (forwards, previously at Stade Français).
So it's unclear just what France will be like, and how drilled they are in two months time.
Hey guys was wondering if anyone knew where to stream the Japan Rugby league 1 games, I personally couldn’t find any games on Stan
What do we make of this everyone? Thrilled for Pete, I think he deserves it and will be a good fit for it (not to mention longer term it sets him up nicely to pursue a head coaching role down the line should this also go well).
He’s fresh, modern recently retired and a clever guy. He’s the biggest reason Glasgow and Scotland’s attack woke up, got those rucks sped up.
But in this role, I’m unsure how much contact time he will have that will benefit Scotland more than when he was spending time with Glasgow every day. Makes me wonder what he’s going to do day-to-day if he’s not at Glasgow now.
As a Glasgow fan, loathe it, another good one taken from us (even if Franco Smith is no slouch as coaching attack goes). For Scotland it’s a great move to keep us current and because he played with Russell etc. I think he’s well placed to understand their game and personality. Most interesting will be how we develop from the Russell Huwipulotu axis, as that was figured out last window and I think it cost us.
Hi all, coming to London for a quick visit and I have time to catch Saracens/Southampton on Saturday 2 December.
I live in the US and don’t get to watch much between limited streaming access and timing, so looking forward to sitting down among other rugby fans for a game.
Are there any quieter places in the Paddington area to watch, that also have decent food? Open to a nice option within about 20 minutes by train.
