    As we approach the start of the 2015 Rugby World Cup in England, we are going to look at what the term 'Clear & Obvious' means to a referee, and the greater team of 4 in general.

    During the world cup, the match officials will be under a greater degree of scrutiny than has ever been seen before, the desire to get every decision correct is there, but perfection is something even that even the best teams have not yet achieved.

    Perfection for a team would surely mean that no player drops a ball, every pass goes where intended, every tackle is made, and every kick is successful. However, as supporters we understand that this is near impossible to do over a full 80 minutes. The dynamics of the game, along with the unpredictability of the opposition defence means that mistakes will happen, but it's how you over come them that really defines the team.

    WWE

    Thread Starter: OB..

    USA Rugby - bankrupt

    Thread Starter: SimonSmith

    For those who may be keeping an eye on the "sleeping giant" of World Rugby, the Board of Directors and the Congress just voted to proceed with Chapter 11 bankruptcy filings on the part of USA Rugby. Years of mismanagement and bad governance coming home to roost.

    Coronavirus Impact

    Thread Starter: smeagol

    The impact of the pandemic on the professional game is well-documented, but has it started to impact the amateur game? I just got an email this morning that a 7s tournament scheduled for March 28 is cancelled, as the host school has put a halt to all club sports.
