N.B. The Italy-Tonga match in 1999 was a World Cup match too.
Couldn't the Pro 14 resume in a few weeks, only excluding Italy and SA?
The ECR haven't said it is gonna be scrapped, only postponed.
Three trophies? Not won jack in seven years? Tainted victory? Wtf?
Um, I think Cardiff are rather more likely to make the European Cup this time round than the Ospreys are...
Looks rather convoluted.
Just a correction: Welsh regions won the Pro 12/14 three times since Gatland took over: Ospreys in 2010 and 2012, then Scarlets in 2017. Also,...
Mostly good points, but just to point out: Wales lost to the Chiefs 40-7!:D I think the Gatland years were more a silver generation than a truly...
'Shocking' is an exaggeration, surely? Even when not winning titles, Wales were not usually Scotland/Italy level of bad.
I wonder if Wales looked relatively good during the Gatland years due to how poor the 'blue axis' of Argentina, France, Italy and Scotland often...
Scoreline flattered Wales, although if England really want to progress to being constantly as good if not better than the All Blacks they need to...
Round 14 hasn't been played yet. The Dragons-Benetton match was postponed from a previous round.;)
A little bit, but I think this is based on World Rugby's rankings: the six countries involved in the new league are the top-ranked teams in South...
This is certainly an exciting development. The more rugby grows globally, the better.
Well Nick Cain in The Rugby Paper complained about the team that lost to Ireland being under-strength.
Great result for Wales. My only concern is: was that a more-or-less full-strength U20s England side, or have they lost players to their clubs again?
Wales gonna have to defend for their lives.
France also beat Ireland in 2016 by one point, mostly by injuring all the latter's players!
EDIT: Oh you mean the U20s? Sorry!
Who has said that?
England to win by 10, with Wales' injuries and all. That said, Wales can spring up surprises at times against England.
