Weekend Rugby Quiz

Exactly what it says on the tin. Got two minutes click here to take part

Heineken Cup, time to make a fortune, or not as the case may be.

So. This week I managed to get my ticket application in for RWC 2011, I’ve jst gone for all the group games having had a fair whack of fingers burnt buying semi-final tickets last time round (great game, just a shame Ireland weren’t in it. Shortly after I’d put the application in, I had news

The 6 Nations treble for round three turn £1 into £155

The wonderful people at bet365 and myself offer you the opportunity of a great result from some great games.  I was so tempted I had a go myself

Cardiff's top five 6Nations matchday breakfasts

For all of you heading to Cardiff for the rugby on  Saturday, the following is a quick list of the best breakfasts you can find. Its the most important meal of the day you know… No. 8: Westgate St. The official breakfast of the WRU, not that you would expect many of the squad in

Ferris starts, O'Connell making all the right noises, can they do it? Does it really matter? Will Gatland ever shut-up?

Ferris Included in Starting Line-Up  Sweet sweet music to my ears. Having listened to Gatland prattle on about closing roof’s and untrustworthy locks all week I have been proud to hear the legend of Deccie keeping it positive and brief. O’Connell pitched in with the following earlier: Structurally their attack goes out the window. Once they’ve

Highlight of the opening 6 Nations weekend? Newport Gwent Dragons

There I’ve said it. The genuine highlight of the weekend had to be Will Harries’ beautiful solo effort shortly after the French gave up at half time in Scotland. Ireland Vs Italy: Both sides poorer than expected, opening weekend rustiness or not. There were brief glimpses of Craig Gower not being another ‘Bergamasco’ but all

Attoub enlists Lee Byrne's legal team for appeal

Or at least he should. Lee Byrne’s appeal has gone remarkably well and on the most part, without enquiry as far as I can see. It seems to me that there has been a dramatic turn around on the behalf of the Independent Disciplinary Committee who less than a week ago told us: The independent

Wales Squad, Same Same no Difference

Warrens announced his options for the coming months, not much new here. Although it was a fairly good weekend for the Welsh sides in the Heineken Cup, I can’t see there being any real change in fortune for the side in this years tournament. The only shining light I see coming through is the Scarlet’s

England Six Nations Squad Announced

Was it really? Good man Johnno, it seems he has the ability to manage the press off the field like he did the Ref on it. I’ve just read the bbc’s report on the squad and am left a little empty to say the least. Don’t get me wrong,  I will be as happy as anyone

Williams back for Wales, Ireland stick to their guns

  Wales have their star back and their pop star back on the bench for the France game. Thankfully Gatland hasn’t gone for Henson to start and so hopefully the hero worship of a win  won’t be entirely placed upon his shoulders. Ireland have stuck with the team that have got them to the top
