Striving to bring you a more enjoyable and informative rugby experience here on Rugbydump, we thought it would be handy to experiment with a new feature that will be a great way for us to share interesting rugby titbits we come across.
LinkDump will be posted sporadically throughout the week, and will feature hand-picked links to topical and informative rugby articles, funnies, and sometimes videos.
While this format may not work for everyone, we have a lot to share and hope that some will enjoy the random, interesting links that you may not have come across otherwise.
Click the link, view the pages, but don't forget to come back here and comment and discuss. Please also leave feedback via email or comments as to whether you enjoy this feature or not. We'll work on it as time goes by, improving, tweaking, and ultimately, perfecting.
