Rugby

MODS I know that there's already a World Cup thread, but I wasn't sure how to change the title.

So here's some questions.

1) Do you watch/play Rugby?
2) Union or League? The eternal debate.
3) For both sports, how can we expand them to make the competitions more exciting?


Oh and here's some rambling.

It's that time of the year again in the NH.
I.e the 6 Nations.

Personally I think France will walk it but here's a couple of points after the first week:
- It's a cliche to say the Azzuri are doing better. I mean they are, but they've got a long way to go.
- For all the prestige put on international Rugby, is it sinful for me to say that the Heineken cup is a) of a better standard generally and b) more exciting.

Also, general rugby question. This really applies to union, but basically Rugby players currently play an awful lot of club matches in the Guiness Prem, then the Heineken Cup, then International Tests if they are good enough. Given that we are now in the professional era, given that the 'Big Games' are now pulling crowds in excess of 80'000 and given the toll rugby takes on the players bodies now (a lot of rugby players are rarely at 100% these days), surely it would make more sense to make the Heineken Cup it's own league now as opposed to simply forcing the teams to play in the prem/ top 14 as well?

Re: Rugby

I watch it now and again, I'm Welsh and it's very popular here, i'm glad we won the Grand Slam

2) Union or League? The eternal debate.

Union. That's more exciting I think

3) For both sports, how can we expand them to make the competitions more exciting?

No idea, football just blocks out all intrest in rugby for most people.
