    [INTERNATIONAL] Sonny Bill Williams/Sinny Bin Williams

    After another YC against the French, which probably contributed to the change from a reasonably polished to a pretty ragged looking AB team on the field, what do others think about SBW? It seems that parts of the NZ media are turning against him and even while I admire his ferocity, I still...

    [Law] Discussions with Captains

    While I was watching the Wallabies v All Blacks last night I noticed that Wayne Barnes listed the Australian Players that he was watching or had a chat with while talking with the All Blacks captain. I can't see any justification for this and if anything it provides an unfair advantage to one...

    AUS vs ARG

    Watching the end of the game at the moment and I think that Mathieu Raynal is really struggling for control of the match as far as I can see. I've only seen him referee a couple of times and he seems to struggle with the language barrier and confidence (which I suspect is related to difficulty...

    Gauzere must be missing the game RSA v USA

    Looks like PG decided that the Springboks needed some assistance in the clearout. I've been here before more than once, but usually ends with me tangled up in the bodies rather than PG's pretty smooth slide off the side and whistle...

    Hooper Cited Aus vs Arg

    Time to touch down

    Hi Guys, I had a very lopsided game today, 111-10, legs are shattered. One question - when a player misses a penalty kick at goal and the defender catches the ball, how long to they have to ground it to get the dropout option. I've always thought it was pretty much immediately but now I'm...

    Sharks vs Rebels

    Apart from the often complained about fact of a non-neutral referee in so many S15 matches, what do you guys think of the YC/RC combination between du Plessis and Weeks? I think the RC for Weeks could have been justified, but only if a similar punishment for a strike to the back of a player's...

    [7's/10's] First Seven's Tournament - Advice

    Hi Guys, I've got my first Sevens tournament tomorrow, and while I'm happy with my knowledge of the variations etc I'm in the dark with best positioning etc. How do you guys approach the game - knowing that rucks are much shorter and my legs are going to get a pretty big workout tomorrow!

    Aus vs France

    Apart from the Wallabies neglecting to turn up for a good part of the match and not deserving to win, I'm fairly unimpressed with the officials for this match. Allowing the use of the home unions national flag (complete with sh**ty plastic shafts) as the AR flag is a very very poor look. The...
