The Top 5 Nick 'Honey Badger' Cummins Moments

Great player and character that really adds so much to our game. Rugby needs Cummins in the spotlight badly. I certainly cannot blame him.

I can't help but think this is a sign of things to come. The foreign money vs. test career thing is coming to a head. The best players are not going to be content to forgo serious paydays just to rep their countries. Money talks and everything else walks.

I wonder what the difference is in salary between the Force and Red Sparks?

Jonah Lomu wreaking havoc against Australia in 1995

I remember watching Lomu's profile screen on tv back when they had height, weight, club, and OCCUPATION. It said he was a bank teller. I wonder if he ever really worked in a bank.

The Top 5 Moments from the 2001 Super Rugby Season

Interesting exchange.

As far as lineouts what the law did with lifting was turn an individual skill to a group skill. If you guys didn't play back then it was quite different. If you had a very tall or very skilled jumper you could basically kick for touch with impunity from anywhere on the field.

Having a great lineout jumper was akin to having a great kicker on your squad. Many guys specialized. Of course it was also a great place to sort people out, refs hated it, and it looked like a mess on tv.

Most of the changes come from the game morphing from an enjoyable player-centric activity to a polished television spectacle driven product.

Australia complete clean sweep against France with Sydney win

A) Joaco, we're with you!
B) I'm not French, but am I only the only person that thinks a wildly inconsistent wild card team that looks like world beaters one week and amateurs the next is kind of cool? You never know if a French team will show up, and I think that makes test rugby all the more interesting. The French sportsmen's psychology is really something I don't understand.

Midweek Madness - Japanese player loses the ball over the tryline

How many kg are the Japanese giving up in the scrum and they STILL push the Americans around. Come on USA!

Wyles and MAnoa are the best American players.
