    The recent furore over the Sam Cane v Robbie Henshaw collision in the second test between Ireland and New Zealand got me to thinking about the merits of using slow motion video to make judgements about potential foul play incidents in rugby. I think we have all heard the meme that sometimes, looking ...

    Nigel Owens was born on the 18 June 1971 and raised in Mynyddcerrig; a small traditional Welsh speaking village approximately 12 miles from Carmarthen, in south west Wales. As a keen sportsman, Owens played Full Back for the school rugby team, but after missing a crucial match-winning conversion, the teacher made a tongue in cheek comment that he should consider becoming a referee. It was a half joking throw away comment which could have been instantly forgotten, but by happy coincidence it would change his life, because Owens thought to himself Why not? ...

    Rugby World Cup 2023

    Thread Starter: oldman

    I notice that there are three "applicants" for the 2023 World Cup. France, South Africa and Ireland. Although the infrastructure, stadium sizes, transport links etc may be better in France and South Africa may be better the thought of a five week party in Ireland must be the best bet. Any comments?
