    I consider that to be great news - keep the name, change the imagery.

  3. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    A while back, one rugby player called another rugby player "gypsy boy". IIRC, it didn't end particularly well for the name caller.

    [Golden Oldies] Re: Nigel Owens on inclusive rugby.

    Yep. Sorry about that

    It was supposed to be posted on another (skeptics) forum with near identical software and look, that I had open on another tab.

    It was actually a repost from a third forum

    This is such a boring match, a repeat of 2007

    Looks like South Africa have managed to drag England down to their level.

    Re: Conflicts of interest

    I agree.

    I originally thought jz558's post was marginal, but less so with further clarification. It would have been preferable if the original post had been clearer,

    I think I could make the argument to clubs that letting the tournament run an extra week would benefit them

    Re: RWC Japan 2019 - Business

    Making the groups six instead of five does not add to the length of the tournament. In a group of five, four teams play and one team doesn't. In a group of six, all teams play on each playing day.

    [Law] Re: Question about the TMO

    I'm not sure about that, but I can tell you that a punt is usually kicked higher in the arc of the kicker's "swing". A punt from a ball that drops sufficiently low so that you might mistake it for a...

    c. May be a combination of tactical and territorial.

    [RWC] Re: How are the RWC refs doing so far ?
