If Carlsberg did Rugby Tournaments…

The comedian Spike Milligan, who was a huge rugby fan, apparently commented as  he neared the end of his long life that it was looking forward to what was then the Five Nations that kept him going for another  year!

Not sure I would go as far but there is something about this historic competition w...

The Final Countdown

I just love these final pool weekends in European rugby.  Even for a neutral there is so much drama and intense competition to enjoy.  If you remember last year there was a quite staggering result for French Top14 royalty Clermont who failed to realise all they needed was a losing bonus and managed ...

Back to Europe, back to business

Back to Europe this weekend as we get down to the business end of proceedings in the pool stages of the Champions Cup competition.

If we cast our minds back (way back) to the last round, it was a mixed bag for the UK teams on their last outings with Northampton taking an absolute mauling at the han...

NEW YEAR NEW RUGBY LAWS AND OLD RIVALRIES

So the pine needles have been hovered up the last of the mince pies eaten and the kids are bored with their games.  Hey ho time to switch our focus back to the important things in life!

The Aviva Premiership is the gift that keeps giving. As Eddie Jones would say ‘more drama than an episode of East...

Championship Round Up

Well it is back to Europe again this weekend, and after a bit of a stutter from the home nations last weekend, we'll be hoping for strong performances all round!

You would have quite happily back Exeter and Wasps to do the business last weekend, but only one of those managed to pull the rabbit out ...

STRAIGHT BACK TO EUROPE

After a bruising and attritional Autumn International series it is straight back to work for most of the players.  This weekend will see most of the star names pitched straight back into their club or provincial sides for crucial European cup games.

Personally I loved the autumn internationals and ...

The boys are back in town

Big weekend of rugby is in store for England! We all know the crunch match this weekend is England Australia so you’ll forgive me for focusing my attention on this one. The war of words has started well before the turf has been troubled and as we all remember, when we took a little trip down South i...

NORTH CLOSES THE GAP ON SOUTH

It is a bit hard to know quite what to make of England’s game against Fiji.  With non existence resources and virtually no time together the Fiji team had the feel of a Barbarians side - loaded with talent but not a lot of structure or playing time.  I would dearly love to see Fiji get some more sup...

It's finally happened!

Since the last time England beat South Africa, we have seen the launch of the iPhone, Northern Rock nationalised, the bankruptcy of the Lehman Brothers, a double dip recession, the first black president, Star Wars has been laid to rest and reincarnated and Britain has decided to leave the EU. Only n...

Can England continue to dominate to the South?

It wasn’t until this set of internationals rolled around that it came to my attention that it is nearly ten years to the day that England last best South Africa, and this resonates pretty strongly for me as I scored the winning try in that game. Hardly known for my try scoring prowess… that one wa...
