Quicker Scrums and No More Diving: The New Law Changes We All Wanted To See

:/ Er, what's wrong with substitutions?

Also, how would you deal with a player that starts punching the crap out of another player?

All Black legend Mils Muliaina scores first try in USA Pro Rugby with first touch

I agree that a vast amount of marketing is required to sell the sport to the US, especially considering they already have an extremely well established form of it already (American football)... But I can't help but feel that these commentators actually thought they knew what they were talking about... I saw what Stroudos saw, 9 passes to 10, 13 cuts back to receive forward pass.....

Quicker Scrums and No More Diving: The New Law Changes We All Wanted To See

Hmmm I actually welcomed this law change/introduction, but now I read your comment I realise that I'd currently embraced the modern game where feigning is a large part of it... Going back to the roots, you're totally right... it's one of those ethical/moral things that you just shouldn't do, 'ergo' (stroudos), there shouldn't actually ever need to be a law for it...

Definitely agree with you on point 2 as well!!

It's fine RD, just more to highlight the rather shakey commentary..

Quicker Scrums and No More Diving: The New Law Changes We All Wanted To See

Now all we need to do is ban Biggar, bring back rucking etc and our game will be sorted....

England beat Wales in tour warmup match at Twickenham

Totally agree with you there Stroudos...

Lets face it, World Rugby have set up these laws about no citing unless it's worthy of a red card, but could they seriously suggest they couldn't change anything to suit their views? As you said, issue a statement about condemning the actions and then go from there.

Biggar is getting too big for his boots and I hope he gets some serious bruises in NZ.

As for Carter and Wilkinson, I literally cannot imagine. Wilkinson looked so insularly focussed that I'd be surprised to see him react to an elephant wondering across the pitch - either that or he'd maintain some sort of "ok, elephant on the pitch, how to I play around this" kind of attitude - and that is what made him so great, he focussed on improving his own game, not faffing around with others. Carter looks less absorbed with his own mind, but still focussed on playing the bloody game in the best positive manner he can.

I'm with you about the players surrounding Mitrea too... it was horrendous to see... if this is what the future holds for Rugby then it's a very sad future.... and I'll solely blame Biggar for being a complete wanchor and causing it!

Actually, I think AWJ has form for getting in referees faces too actually....

Rugby Training Mistakes: Specificity - Not Training For Your Position

I was thinking the likes of SOB too....

Simon Shaw had the frame to be huge, as you said about 1/2p, he's a little one, but with a whole ton of extras on him.

Develop Elite Speed In Any Gym - Treadmill Push

On the note of wrecking the machine, I too had this concern....

Was your gym near empty? Or were there a few of you trying this out?

I can't help but think unless I can satisfy either of the above then I'll look like a massive tw@ and probably provoke someone into wandering over to tell me that it has an 'ON' button....

Agreed.... I can only assume this video falls into the category of a bit of rugby news about how a pro player is getting on in life whilst trying something a bit different.... Because the try was bloody boring and Muliaina did about as much work as I did boiling the kettle this morning....
