Fun With Super Rugby Handicapping – Round 19

Last Week – an embarrassing 1-3; Overall (Since Round 15):  8-8  - in our defense, if you've taken the band off when we suggested, you're still ahead.  Anyhow, gotta have a good finish. As we hit the final week of the regular season, 10 of the 15 teams could have something to play for.  Oddly though, … Continue reading Fun With Super Rugby Handicapping – Round 19

The Tuesday (Wednesday) Update – The Around the World Edition

Some scumbag that claims to run this blog has been delinquent on his plan to make multiple postings each week, one MLR-centric, and the other concerning the rest of the rugby planet.  He's an ass.

The Tuesday Update – The Calm Before the Storm Edition

It is rare indeed when any rugby union-based literature can start an update with events from the United States (and unless you're based in the US, you probably still would start elsewhere, but I digress), but for this week and next, the opening weekend of Major League can and does take rugby's center stage in … Continue reading The Tuesday Update – The Calm Before the Storm Edition

The Tuesday Update – The Bland Like Baked Chicken Edition

I wanted very badly to tune last weekend's European playoffs and be enthralled.  I wasn't.

THIS WEEK'S TOP NEWS - Perennial fan favorite and former Highlanders TV legend (seriously, go visit YouTube and watch some Highlanders TV if you haven't already) Fumi Tanaka was part to the greatest rugby falcon since Elton Jantjies decided he hated his forward pack and this blog needed a masthead photo.  Here's a snapshot: For … Continue reading The Tuesday Update – The International Snapshot Edition

The Tuesday Update — The English Have Ruined Everything Again Edition

The proprietors of the Six Nations clearly set up this year's fixture list with an eye toward an England-Ireland final round clash for all of the marbles.  It seemed logical, right?  Clearly those two squads would dispatch the other teams and meet with everything on the line at the end of it all? Ireland held … Continue reading The Tuesday Update — The English Have Ruined Everything Again Edition
