Other than a couple of amazing tries from Toulon the Heineken Cup final was kinda ho hum but Super Rugby sure made up for it.

(1)Sharks vs (10) Blues & (5)Highlanders vs (6)Crusaders were both amazing matches. If you guys didn't watch them yet be sure to download em.

NRL State of Origin series starts up tonight. Rugby League at it's finest.

I believe FS2 will be broadcasting the game early Wednesday morning.

Man, its been awhile since Ive been able to post. Newborn arrived in April.

Congrats Bus on the great run and making the championship game. Watched yall play against Sacramento. Between NOLA and Reds, looks like the RRC is the top Div 1 league in the West (mostly thanks to PRP). Best of luck against Life!

I like the format too. Those guys will have to be in great condition to play a game of 7's for that length of time.

instead of two halves of seven minutes, two squads of 16 players will play four 12-minute quarters, operating rolling substitutions at dead-ball situations throughout


maybe since it super 7s everything could double?
14 guys
4, 14 minutes quarters?

No. Keep it with 7 players.

15s doesn't lend itself to quarters.

Gutted for the Sarries...I like them, but whoever lost that call would be crushed.

As a side note Wyles looked great today...hope that bodes well for his play this summer...we need him at his top level.

I could not imagine playing 100 minutes of top level rugby...warriors..

Looking forward to the Leinster game here in 10 minutes or so..

Want BOD to go out with a championship

I'm happy my Saints prediction from back in October came true. And they got the double by beating Bath last weekend.

North


Hopefully Leinster wins this one now.

And it looks like London Welsh are in the Premiership next year after crushing Bristol at Bristol in the first leg.

2 more things:

1) Live stream of the CRC (my internet sucks to much to stream though)

2) Are any of y'all planning on going to England next year? I am, but I can't decide if should go for pool play and watch the US get destroyed (cheaper tickets) or try to wait till post pool play and try to catch the final (much more expensive)
