Interesting read,

Rugby wouldn't be the force it is today in France, league was thier number 2 sport ( behind soccer ) until all league players were forced to play Union under the Vichy government.

By some miracle League ( or Rugby 13 as the French call it ) is still strong in the South East, Catalans are ontop of the Super League and Toulouse are a few wins away from being promoted into the Super League

It was like here in Australia

in six years League went from nothing to being bigger than union and on the way to total dominance in terms of rugby codes

union wouldn’t have recovered if not for the nazis

I'm starting to loose track of all the new records the Wallabies are setting

In the past 12 months,
Biggest ever loss to France
First lose to Italy
First loss to Fiji in 70 yrs
First time being knocked out in the pool stage
Biggest ever loss to Wales

And to top it off they are 75m in debt.

The future is bright !

Can you email that to Hamish McLennan.

He might ring Danny Weidler up again for another scoop on the news on how Rugby is a superior/world game.

Once this WC is over maybe some outside backs come back.

Semi Radradra would look good in a Sharks jersey.

Maybe Burgess can get one from the Brits for his English team.

Whatever plans Kickby AU had are dead, the tide has turned.

Any of the Saffa outside backs any good?
