Might make it a better game, but I doubt it.



Last paragraph of that article:

"Ultimately, we want the game to be easier to play, coach, and referee - and easier for fans to watch," said O'Brien.

What will this mean for all the Yawnion morons and their proud boasts of it being superior because it's 'more technical game'?






Leeds Rhinos? 8 for you, Leeds Rhinos! You go, Leeds Rhinos.

And none for Castleford Tigers. Bye!

I thought that rubbish about being a technical game went out the window When League players who had never played union counted the day until they made the international union sides.

There's a rugby survey here.

Although it's being ran by the RFU, there's nothing saying that it's about union, so please feel free to give your opinion on the changes in rugby over the past ten years.

But they don't say it's only about union. Perhaps they're engaging in wider market research? Who are we to assume that they would arrogantly try to twist the word "rugby" to mean their particular version? :lol:

(although the question about the rugby ethos being affected by the today's general decline in moral values does perhaps give it away)

:lol: reminds me of that great quote from Laurie Daly!






All that rugby puts hairs on your chest,
what chance have you got against a tie and a crest?

Clearly there must be some league fans who like union as well as league.

Please tell me why do you like Rugby union? What about the game appeals to you?

I've watched full union games but just can't get into it "kick and clap" it's often referred to and it's true! Compared to league were it's fast flowing and your on the edge of your seat every second.
