Have seen this mentioned a lot over the years but never thought I needed it. What exactly does it give you? Old games or live stuff too? With pro 14 going to yet another subscription channel this year, I just can’t afford it all anymore...with sky, bt and this new one, it’s over £100 a month I’m paying just to follow my rugby team, mainly on just away games.
Can anyone provide an invite?

It's a library of torrents for a whole host of old matches as well as rugby related docs, podcasts etc. It's really worth signing up for imo.

I don't have any invites left though, sorry.

Matches generally don't appear until about 5 hours after they air. They're not live.

I had an account for this a good few years ago and managed to download a few games. Have absolutely no idea of my login details now, though.

I've got some as well. Let me know anyone who wants one. (So long as you agree to leave your downloads up for others to download too).

The only catch is that the old games / shows / etc are only 'available' so long as someone out there is seeding them. Best to download your preferred game soon after it goes up when many people will be seeding. (I was interested in a previous year's schools final or something similarly obscure and it sat in my torrent downloader for a year, I think, without any bit of it downloading before I gave up.)

And you must seed yourself, otherwise your download / upload ratio will get lopsided and you could be booted out as someone who doesn't 'share'.

I haven’t done torrents in a long time. Can this be done on an iPad these days?

Would they have obscure or relatively unpopular stuff on there such as say Connacht v Scarlets pro 14?

Yes. As said above, though, if it hasn’t been uploaded recently you may be a while waiting for seeds. I’ve deleted most of the old games off my hard drive.

I’ve used it less and less recently as games tend to get posted on YouTube not long after final whistle, without the pain of waiting for a download, and post-game highlights packages are improving, especially when the thought of sitting through 80 minutes of Leinster away to Dragons during the 6N is less than appealing.
