    The National Rugby Championships (NRC) in Australia start today and RugbyRefs.com is pleased to be able to bring you the full appointments for match officials for rounds 1 & 2.

    The NRC is Australia's 2nd tier Rugby competition, created to reduce the gap between local club rugby & Super Rugby. Many of the players involved have been called up from their local club teams to take part, and those who perform well could be in line for involvement in their local Super Rugby franchise.

    Organisers of the Rugby World Cup, taking place between September and October 2015 in England, have added an innovation to help novice fans learn the complex rules of the game. During the matches, fans will have access to simplified, in-game commentary with detailed explanations of the rules related to what is currently happening in each match.

    This was revealed when tournament organisers unveiled some of their plans for Britain's greatest global sporting event since the London 2012 Olympic Games. A report in the Daily Telegraph on April 29th had proposed some of the terms and rules that will be in the “Idiot’s guide to rugby union”. But now more details have been given about the organiser's mode of enlightening new fans about rugby.

It bounces and White 9 fly hacks the ball back towards Blue 10 sticks his left hand out close to his side and knocks the ball forward. In real time it looked a bit wrong (not the...
