Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter (Tue, 06 Nov 2018)
Theresa May would have felt right at home at Twickenham. Even a workable Brexit deal sometimes feels more achievable than locating the solution to rugby union’s unfeasibly tight fixture calendar.

Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better? (Tue, 01 May 2018)
Is rugby popular, or not very popular at all? The answer is, perhaps weirdly, both. When it comes to international rugby, cup finals, or some annual “special” games, it attracts big numbers. 55,000 fans went to Murrayfield to see Saracens beat Clermont in 2017, 74,000 watched Wales beat Scotland, 82,000 watched England beat Wales and … Continue reading Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better?
