Jason Eaton and Julien Bonnaire fight as La Rochelle claims famous win

Compared to the past some things are better some are worse. Very different skill sets are required today (especially in the fwds) compared to the game even 20 years ago.

In the past we didn't have players diving or players holding up their hands in dismay constantly at every breakdown trying to get a call. The players even at the highest level had accomplished professional careers and personal lives. Yes there was usually at least one psycho in every club, but it takes all kinds.

I don't think it is as fun to be a rugby player today as it has been in the past, it is however much more lucrative.

The game is a better spectacle for fans now and is a business with a lot of people earning a livelihood. In the past it was for the fun of the players, pride, and not too much else. You missed out.

Really? How long have you been around the sport?

This is not that big of a deal. Rugby has never been cleaner.

Yoann Huget gets official warning for faking injury against Bath

1)Jesus Christ, what a coward 2)This is the natural outcome of introducing regular crazy long multi-game bans and yellow and red cards into the game. Players will try to get others ejected from the game. There should be no such thing as cards in rugby.

Sam Burgess big tackles on Ben Jacobs plus first try for Bath

He should have switched codes a year earlier. As outstanding an athlete as he is and with all the progress he's made I'm not sure he'll be ready for the RWC.

But wasn't the RWC the whole point?

Looking back at the first ever European Cup match in 1995

Ah the white athletic tape with electrical tape over the wrists, you don't see that as much anymore. Remember the breathe-right strips on the nose that every SA player wore for about two years in the 90's? Heady days.
