Midweek Madness - Bath's forward pack take on a Formula 1 car

That was sort of what I had in mind... I mean can you imagine the news articles had this not carefully been calculated as a DEFINITE pack win:

"8 dead in tragic scrum machine and Formula 1 accident"....

It's a bit of fun, but the perceived variables involved are just far too risky for someone to genuinely put their pack at risk.... Much like the Habana Cheetah episode "springbok devoured by cheetah" might sound like a fairly innocuous headline, until you realise it's about BH!...

I suppose some sort of restricted vehicle say with straps, so it only has a metre and a half to go, could form and interesting video... Or are we really just clutching at clearly obvious outcomes, hoping for entertainment...?

Midweek Madness - Bath's forward pack take on a Formula 1 car

I had an incline that there was something like that, however they do say an F1 car has a fair weight and the info was 1000 bhp per ton.... So I wasn't sure...

Throwback Thursday - When Sebastien Chabal took on the All Blacks

I was quite surprised Nallet didn't take the chalice when Chabal disappeared... Similar appearance PLUS the ability to play some decent rugby..... Or maybe that was the problem...

World Rugby introduces world rankings for Women's 15s game

This is great news for the women's game, I definitely welcome it! Women's game is great in the sense that it currently has that "pre-pro era" charm or early pro charm that the men's used to have. (I mean that in a positive manner!)

World Rugby introduces world rankings for Women's 15s game

Because 6 Nations has; and always will be, a closed competition, that is what makes it interesting, the team that got spanked last year doesn't have to play some sort of tactical "don't get relegated" type of gameplan.

That being said, I'm all for additional teams to be introduced, or a new competition to be formed.

I know zilch about soccer, but I am aware that there is the world cup and then in the interim there is euro cup(?) or something like that. There could be room for a rugby version?

But as with everything it's cost.

Nice effort! Shame for green who managed to defend and turn the ball over!

Jacques Burger lines up and nails Luke McAlister with textbook tackle

That was a brilliant hit, it's those last steps from Burger which show incredible power, he was running before but those last steps seemed to be a mega power sprint...

Glad everyone was ok too! :)
