Midweek Madness - Japanese player loses the ball over the tryline

Also since he lands on the ball with his chest the try, if there isnt a knock on, would be scored by downward pressure meaning the support player wouldnt even have had to dot the ball down

Midweek Madness - Japanese player loses the ball over the tryline

there are still knock ons in the trizone. that being said, since he is running sideways im not sure, and the camera angle is difficult to determine if the ball really moves forward on the field.

Carlin Isles dropped ball blooper ruins great fifteens debut try

as i understand it any mens level cap, whether 7's or 15's, locks a player down to that country or am i wrong? i know u20's caps dont but i thought mens level does

Carlin Isles dropped ball blooper ruins great fifteens debut try

he played american football up through college actually, and being american and playing with football converts i can say that football practices are so ingrained in the players heads that often its hard to get them to open up and flow with rugby play

Saracens all set for Allianz Park debut on new artificial pitch

this stuff is really becoming the mainstay in the U.S at least at high level college play. i can say that scrumming on it can actually be easier, esp if the beading is a full as it is meant to be because you can really grip into it though at speed it can become slick in the rain. also if they dont take proper sanitation into account then we will see lots of players out with staff infections. it also does still eat up your skin when u slide on it. also the beads suck for rugby when you get trapped at the bottom of a ruck. i swear ive had a few under my eyelids over the years and everywhere else imaginable.
However the field is level and there shouldnt be any hidden holes to twist an ankle in. but expect the ball to slide alot faster on kicks but the bounce is generally more consistent and hence easier to read.

Hardest, Fastest, Strongest - Carrier, Runner, & Big Hitter

as a american it was great seeing zee on here for fastest but a bit bummed that todd clever wasnt listed as a big hitter. i know he isnt seen much playing in japan but during the world cup even "plays of the week" loved him and showed it seemed at least a hit or two from every game. it seems watching him that every hit he makes leaves an impact.
