Re: RWC: Pool B: All Blacks vs Namibia: MATCH THREAD Sun 6 O

I saw a team practice tackling in that situation. They effectively propped, crouched, tensed and allowed the ball-carrier running crouched over to run into them (head-first into their torso), fall backwards with arms wrapped over ball carriers back. Kind of like a judo yield-throw move. You need to ...

Re: RWC2019 Japan City/Pub/Restaurant/Escort/Cabal/Stadium G

happyhooker I just checked with the stadium and there is no set size limit. Basically, if it will fit under your seat, they will allow you to bring it with you. So the sort of carry-on bag you take on your flight should be alright. Went to the AB v South Africa and Ireland v Scotland game at Yokoha...

Just returned from Japan where I was playing in the Parliamentary Rugby World Cup (NZ beat Australia in the final, thanks for asking).

Was in Tokyo for the last several days, and can recommend the Abbot’s Choice pub, and The Hub in Shibuya, especially when the Irish are there!

Re: Wallabies vs All Blacks: MATCH THREAD: Perth Aug 10

Has Hooper gone off for an HAI? I mean....if it was direct to the head with force (red card), surely the logical next step is an assessment.

Otherwise either 1. It wasn’t with force or 2. The Aussie medical staff has let Hooper down massively.
