French rugby boss Bernard Laporte’s graft experimental opens

Bernard Laporte, a towering numeral in French rugby boss, goes on trial on Wednesday on charges of corruption and influence-peddling, in a high-profile case making big waves only a year before France crowds the World Cup. Rugby World Cup fans can buy France Vs Uruguay Tickets from our website.

The 58-year-old former French rugby boss was suspected of favoritism in awarding a uniform sponsor contract for the nationwide team to close friend Mohed Altrad, the billionaire owner of Top 14 champion Montpellier.

The five officials in the dock also include Claude Atcher, who was recently suspended as managing manager of the 2023 Rugby World Cup organization. And French Rugby Federation (FFR) vice-president Serge Simon.

The trial is scheduled to accomplish on Sept 22.

“The accusations against Bernard Laporte are completely trumped-up, notably because everything he did was in the best interest of the federation,” said his lawyer, Jean-Pierre Versini-Campinchi.

But PNF, France’s financial crimes unit, disagrees. Its study into the dealings of Laporte, who was minister for sports in president Nicolas Sarkozy’s government from 2007 to 2009, concluded that he was guilty of illegal influence-peddling and inert dishonesty, mostly for the benefit of Altrad.

The two men’s friendship and commercial links are at the heart of the case, which goes back to February 2017 when they signed a contract under which Laporte, then head of the FFR, agreed to appear in Altrad group conferences and sold his image mock rights in return for 180,000 euros (then around $190,000).

‘A fighter’

He did, however, make several public statements backing Altrad and, in March 2017, signed a €1.8-million deal with the businessman. Making his eponymous firm the first-ever sponsor to seem on the French national team’s jerseys.

Even now, Alfred’s logo features on the team’s shirts thanks to a follow-up deal sold by Laporte’s in 2018. Which prosecutors say bears all the hallmarks of corruption. But while that amount was indeed salaried to Laporte’s, prosecutors claim that he never actually provided the services he signed up for.

Laporte’s is further accused of overriding French rugby’s federal disciplinary commission, which reduced a fine against an Altrad business from €70,000 to €20,000 after a call from Laporte’s.

While prosecutors see this and several more events as proof of illicit favoritism. Laporte’s himself claimed that there was no “cause-effect relationship,” and said he canceled the contract in the summer of 2017 when press bits of intelligence began to question the nature of the relationship between the two men.

The trial will also examine the links between Claude Atcher and the FFR from 2017 to 2018 when Atcher’s company, Sport SV. Won agreements for four missions, mostly linked to the French bid for the 2023 Rugby World Cup. Prosecutors say one of those missions, worth €21,000, was never carried out. But Laporte’s still signed off on a bonus payment to Sport XV of €30,000.

Prosecutors say the deals swindled the FFR out of an estimated total of €80,000. Five years of investigation have shaken the French rugby world and upset Laporte’s reputation, but he still got himself re-elected as FFR boss at the end of 2020.

“He is confident,” his lawyer Versini-Campinchi said. “His mindset is that of a fighter.”

France star Virimi Vakatawa devastated by an early end to their career

France center Virii Vakatawa said in an emotional news conference on Tuesday. That it was hard to wake up and accept. He would never train with his colleagues again, having had to retire due to a heart defect.

The 30-year-old Fiji-born player’s problem had been raised before the 2019 Rugby World Cup. The doctor from his Top 14 club Racing 92 Sylvain Blanchard revealed this at the news conference.

Vakatawa — who sat alongside France head coach Fabien Galthie, Racing handler. Laurent Travers and club owner Jacky Lorenzetti — said it was hard to originate to terms with.

Whilst Lorenzetti said it was “almost like losing a son,” Vakatawa was more restrained in his comparisons, even if he was as emotional.

“It is tough for me to talk,” he said. “This morning, I got up at eight o’clock and I knew I would not be consecutively out onto the training ground with the others”.

Vakatawa had not featured in Racing’s period

“But the hardest thing was yesterday: when I told my teammates I had to stop”.

“I spent a lot of time with them both on and off the pitch. … it is not easy.”

Vakatawa had not featured in Racing’s period opener on Saturday, a 25-19 win over Casters, and Monday. The club had announced his career was over for unspecified medical reasons.

 “He has to finish his career in France due to a cardiological problem,” said Blanchard. “This defect which was not connected to rugby has been constantly kept under observation but it is progressively deteriorating”.

“However, this is not the end for him, it is the beginning of something new.”

Gauthier said the 32-time-capped Vakatawa would be sorely missed. He last played in. France’s 20-15 victory in Japan in July. But due to a wound was not a member of the country’s Six Nations Grand Slam-winning squad.

“Virimi allowed a lot of children to the vision of what could be achieved,” said Gauthier, who took over the France job after the 2019 World Cup. “He was a key player in our adventure, in our past, and a wonderful man”.

“What he is experiencing now, by sharing with us he can continue to be a role model to all.”

He scored 49 tries for the club he joined at the age of 17, with his 145th and last club game. Being Racing’s 20-13 loss to La Rochelle in the European Winners Cup semifinal in May.

“He is still here, he will be present on the touchline: Instead of being an actor, he will do something else, but he will be a share of the project,” Travers said. “His life is rugby, it is Racing 92.

“We will do our bit to aid him, that he will always be part of the club that he gave so much to.”

Racing 92 has filled the massive annulled left by Vakatawa’s retirement by signing experienced center Francis Saili from Biarritz. The 31-year-old — capped twice by the All Blacks — has played in Europe since 2015, first with Irish area Munster and then English Premiership outfit Harlequins.

“Today we deliver a positive message to the world – we are rugby, we are 2023.”

Before RWC 2023 All Blacks are ready to give Japan a tough time in Tokyo

Before RWC 2023 All Blacks are ready to give Japan a tough time in Tokyo

It’s been four years since Japan played against the All Blacks in a Rugby League Test match, and both teams have played a lot of rugby since New Zealand won that match 69-31. Japan had a solid home run at the 2019 Rugby World Cup. But the legendary All Blacks seem less invincible since Tokyo’s win in 2018. Rugby World Cup 2023 fans can buy New Zealand Vs Uruguay Tickets from our website.

So both teams will have something to prove. When they play their seventh test match at the Tokyo National Stadium on October 29. The All Blacks will try to confirm their dominance in world rugby. While Japan will undergo another test to prove they can live with the great men of the sport.

The All Blacks will try to confirm their dominance in world rugby
The All Blacks will try to confirm their dominance in world rugby

After meeting the All Blacks, Japan travels to Europe to face France and England. While the All Blacks travel to the teams that play against England: England, Scotland and Wales.

Japan head coach Jamie Joseph

Japan head coach Jamie Joseph said he was excited about the team’s autumn schedule: “We are really looking forward to hosting the All Blacks in Tokyo and playing for our home fans. We are excited to finish. and then to host New Zealand It’s England and France on our European tour and these three teams will be in the ranks next year to win the Webb Ellis Cup in Paris This is where we need to test our level of competition to strengthen for next year’s Rugby World Cup lineup.”

There was a time when Japan would be afraid to face the All Blacks. At the 1995 Rugby World Cup, the All Blacks set a record by beating the defeated Japanese 145-17. Although rugby is relatively well known in Japan – the Waseda University versus Meiji University matches will draw 60,000 spectators to the National Stadium – the standards of play and domestic infrastructure for rugby are poor.

Waseda’s teams may have a place in the country’s 10 most popular teams, but outside of the college league, football is only represented by corporate teams, and with a few exceptions, such as Kobe Steel, it usually draws a small crowd.

The Japan Rugby Football Union (JRFU) tried to solve this problem by launching the first Japanese professional league in 2003. But the truth is, it’s just a rip-off of the company’s old rugby tournament, and most of the players are still employees of the company.

But slowly Japanese rugby started to develop and as more teams recruited better players and coaches, some of the biggest names in rugby came to Japan. With the appointment of foreign coaches to lead the national team (and some club teams) and the introduction of “foreign” players into the national team, Japanese rugby has taken a dramatic turn.

Eddie Jones

When Eddie Jones became coach in 2012, his goal was to make Japan a top 10 country to rival the big boys in rugby, and his uncompromising style started to pay off. The win over Wales in 2013 raised eyebrows and the team is confident to enter the 2015 World Cup.

It went on to produce what the BBC called “the biggest upset in the world of rugby”, beating the southern hemisphere giants South Africa 34-32. At that World Cup, Japan also became the first team to win three billiard games, but still was eliminated from the group stage.

When Jones leaves for England to coach, Japanese rugby fans wonder if Joseph. The new coach of the former All Blacks can keep the national team going. Japan is still struggling to beat the world’s best teams. But Joseph has JRFU’s support to lead the home team to the 2019 Rugby World Cup.  Rugby World Cup fans can buy New Zealand Vs Namibia Tickets from our website.

Backed by a rabid crowd and a feel-good rugby boom, Japan stunned powerhouse Ireland and defeated Scotland en route to the quarter-finals, where they were defeated by eventual champions, South Africa.

Japan has faced France twice on home soil this year, losing 20-15 and 42-23 respectively, before beating Uruguay in two home games. Joseph said the results “fairly reflect” where his team is. The return of FC France winger Kotaro Matsushima and striker Kazuki Himeno from injury will give Joseph’s squad a boost as they warm up against the Australian A’s.

New Zealand Rugby CEO Mark Robinson

“Japanese rugby in Japan has grown in popularity in recent years and this is reflected in the national team’s results, so the All Blacks will be looking forward to a tough test in Tokyo,” said Rugby New Zealand chief executive Mark Robinson.

“We look forward to strengthening our relationship with Rugby Japan.”

Michael Leitch

The All Blacks are considered the “Gods of Rugby” in Japan. They also have a commercial partnership in Japan, where they were everyone’s second favourite team at the 2019 World Cup. Japan coach Joseph plays for both New Zealand and Japan. While former Japan captain Michael Leitch is also from New Zealand.

The All Blacks finished a disappointing third place at the 2019 World Cup and are hoping to claim the trophy at the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France. But 2022 will be a difficult year for the team. They lost a run of three games to Ireland 2-1 at home in July. South Africa on 7 August and then Argentina 25-18 in Christchurch. It could have been a wake-up call as they defeated the South Americans 53-3 a week later and narrowly beat Australia 39-37 on September 15.

Japan will have to do everything it can to match the All Blacks. But a potentially full game and Joseph’s tactical knowledge will give the hosts a chance. As Ireland, Scotland and South Africa can attest, underestimate Japan at your own risk.

All Black Jordie Barrett signs new contract with New Zealand rugby team

Jordie Barrett has officially signed a new deal that sees him join the Hurricanes and New Zealand Rugby (NZR) in the capital until the end of 2025. During the new contract, he can choose to take time off.

Last month, in the Bledisloe Cup game against Australia. Barrett made his first start in the All Blacks’ No. 12 shirt, further proving his versatility as a handy goal scorer. He has also started testing on the wing, fullback and in the top five or eight.

The Taranaki rep and 45-Test All Blacks said he was delighted to have extended his contract with the Hurricanes and was honoured to be wearing the Vortex again. Rugby World Cup fans can buy rwc 2023 Tickets from our website.

“It’s a privilege to have the chance to live in New Zealand and play rugby. It’s been a dream of mine since I was a kid,” Barrett said.

“I feel the Hurricanes are in a really good position right now and I feel the All Blacks are going in a special direction.”

All Blacks head coach Ian Foster added: “I am delighted with Jordie’s contract extension.”

“He has become an important part of our long-term plans. His commitment to New Zealand through 2025 is great news.”

Hurricanes CEO Avan Lee

Hurricanes CEO Avan Lee said it was a good result to have Barrett lock up the entire deal in the capital. His older brother Beauden left the Hurricanes to join the Blues in 2019 when he signed his current contract.

“It’s a good result for us. We don’t want to worry about Jordie leaving every year. It’s really cool to have him locked up for three years,” Lee said.

Lee also confirmed to NZME that Jordie Barrett’s new deal included a possible furlough.

“It’s an option. It also has to be in balance with people like Ardie. We don’t want to lose two players in a year but no guaranteed days off, it comes down to rugby NZ, ourselves and NZ rugby. Negotiations. The player and his agent. Sure, there is some appeal to taking a break during the World Cup cycle, but when we talk about it, we are crossing the bridge. If Jordie really wants to do that and go off to a season of Super Rugby, then we are of course open to that,” he added.

Barrett made his breakthrough in Super Rugby

Born into a rugby-loving family, the 25-year-old is one of eight siblings, including Beauden and Scott of the All Blacks. Their father, Kevin “Smiley” Barrett, played 167 games for Taranaki and the Hurricanes.

A fast bowler with talent in cricket, Barrett was highlighted as a major problem among students at Francis Douglas Memorial College in New Plymouth. He chose rugby and went south to study business administration at Lincoln University.

In 2016, after just one season of domestic rugby, Barrett toured the Northern Hemisphere as an All Blacks apprentice.

The following year, Barrett made his breakthrough in Super Rugby, playing 17 games and scoring 135 points in his debut season before being called up to the All Blacks.

Hurricanes head coach Jason Holland is delighted to take over Barrett as the Hurricanes prepare for the 2023 Super Rugby Pacific season.

“It’s great to have Jordie on the Canes. He has become an important leader for our team on and off the field,” said Holland.

“Last year he played his best football when he was 12 and 15 and we expect him to get even better in the coming years.”

Rugby League World Cup

It was quite astounding to note that, unlike most big sporting tournaments, the RLWC takes place sporadically with no set period amid them. Furthermore.

The early tournaments in 1954,57,60,68,70 and 1972 were only disputed by 4 teams – Great Britain, France, Australia, and New Zealand, so even though it was obtainable as a ‘World Cup‘ that’s perhaps a little misleading as it was hardly inclusive of all nations.

In the first contest, held in 1954, Great Britain defeated France 16-12 at the Parc des Princes in Paris watched by over 38,000 spectators. Australia held the additional tournament (1957) and was victorious. In 1960 it was held by England and Countless Britain was crowned champions for the additional time.

However, despite a home-based nation’s victory, the competition suffered from extremely poor crowds due to the introduction of the live delivery of games. As a result of this, the World Cup would not be contested over for another eight years.

The competition was again competed for in a group format so there was no actual ‘final’ as such; Australia was categorized as the winner under topping the group standings.

By 1975 it was decided that the race needed a radical overhaul. Firstly, the Great Britain team was split into England and Wales. All matches were to be frolicked on a home and away basis around the world instead of consuming a host nation.

The number of sides competing was now five. As Australia had not compressed England in that tournament. A ‘final challenge match’ was hastily arranged, in which Australia romped to a 25-0 victory.

Rugby League World Cup

In 1977 it was obvious that Countless Britain should once more compete as a single entity. Although the final between Australia and Great Britain was a carefully fought affair, public interest in the tournament waned due to sustained tinkering with the format and it was not held again until the mid-1980s.

By the time of the 1995 contest, team contribution had started to spread around. The globe with teams including such as South Africa, Fiji, Tonga, Western Samoa, Papa New Guinea, and now England and Wales.

As you can see from the above fixtures, in the New Year even more countries are now participating in what is now started as one of the most exciting Rugby League World Cups ever to be held!

RLWC takes place sporadically with no set period
RLWC takes place sporadically with no set period

Will there be a new winner this year we wonder? A fair accidental you’d think since only three teams have ever lifted the trophy since 1954. Though in America they call their national baseball tournament.

The ‘World Series’ and by American Football when you win the Super Bowl you are classed as ‘World Champions’ but that’s a story for an additional day!  

New Zealand was triumphant in 2008, while Countless Britain (winners in 54,60,72) cannot win again like England and Scotland. Wales and Ireland will all now compete independently. And in a tournament dominated by the Australians can anyone stop the already 11-time winning Kangaroos from jumping for joy once again!

 FIFA World Cup

The 2022 FIFA World Cup is arranged to take place in Qatar from 20 November to 18 December 2022. This will be the first World Cup always to be detained in the Arab world, and the second World Cup held entirely in Asia after the 2002 tournament in South Korea and Japan.

The first match played at the contest will be contested between Qatar and Ecuador at Al Bayt Stadium, Al Khor. The final is due to be held on 18 December 2022, which is also Qatar National Day. The reigning World Cup victors are France. Look out for our World Cup Planner in the next issue!

F1 Las Vegas

The highly-anticipated Formulation 1 race next year in Las Vegas formally has a date. According to F1’s 2023 calendar, the Las Vegas event will be held on Saturday, Nov. 18, 2023.

The race will take place with a “historic 10 pm ‘lights out’ start.” Organizers said at that period the demand for tickets is predictable to “far exceed” the more than 100,000 official spectator capacity as Las Vegas keenly awaits Formula 1’s arrival.

The Brumbies’ Super Rugby Pacific 2023 attraction could be the launch pad for World Cup success

The Brumbies provided a stage through the Super Rugby season for what should have been a successful 2022 Wallabies Rugby Championship campaign. After all, the Brumbies beat the Chiefs, the Highlanders, and the Hurricanes in the regular season. Rugby World Cup fans can buy Rugby World Cup 2023 Tickets from our website.

But this was not to be. As things turned out, the Wallabies’ campaign in the Super Rugby Pacific 2023 Championship, next to the series loss to England, was disappointing, to say the least. The Wallabies had just two wins from six tests, ending in the 40-16 loss most recently to the All Blacks at Eden Park.

The Brumbies provided a stage through the Super Rugby season
The Brumbies provided a stage through the Super Rugby season

Eden Park is problematic for Australian sides at the best of times, but following a game where the Wallabies were highly competitive and lost in somewhat controversial circumstances, a close game was predictable. And it doesn’t get any easier. Then account for the Hurricanes over in the quarter-finals before going down to the Blues by one point in the semi-finals.

The Wallabies as they make to head to Europe for five tests, including games against the world’s top two ranked teams, France and Ireland. This brings me to the Brumbies Super Rugby Pacific 2023 Soothing draw, which was released on the weekend. The team’s success will potentially lay the platform for the Wallabies World Cup campaign.

The tournament is proving one of the most popular Rugby World Cup to date with an unprecedented request for tickets and records of local public support. Hundreds of thousands of people universal have already joined the 2023 Family in anticipation of the next individual ticket sale phase taking place on 13 September (2023 Family) and 15 September (general public).

According to a new study available today, the host nation has never been so engaged with the event and nine out of 10 people in France support it. The hosting of RWC 2023. While 75 per cent are preparing to follow the tournament in stadia, on TV, or through the media. The Brumbies will be required again, most likely, to do the heavy exciting for Australian rugby in a World Cup year. Rugby World Cup fans can buy RWC 2023 Tickets from our website.

Given the Brumbies’ success this season, not only against Australian teams. But New Zealand teams as well, you would expect them to be foremost the charge. They have pretty much the same group that took them to within one game of the final. Next season, the Brumbies face the top two New Zealand teams, the Campaigners and the Blues, away from home. They also take on the Hurricanes in Wellington.

The Brumbies play the Chiefs and the Highlanders at Canberra Arena. The Highlanders game will be a Sunday afternoon match on 14 May. There are seven games in the regular season in Canberra, preliminary with the round three matches against Queensland on 11 March. After away games against the Waratahs and the Blues. So for rugby fans, there’s plenty to like around the Brumbies 2023 draw.

Gungahlin Eagles unveil dream side coaching line-up of McCaffrey, Giteau, and Carey for Super Rugby Pacific 2023

Locky McCaffrey has been about the world as a professional rugby player, including a fruitful stint with the Brumbies. Matt Giteau, with 103 Wallaby caps, needs a little introduction. Locky and Matt will join forces next season as a difficult coaching line-up for the Gungahlin Eagles. Locky will take on the first-grade head coach role as well as the Eagles’ Academy coach.

Matt, who still looks fit enough to play, will be the Eagles’ high presentation and skills coach. He will work with the senior men and women players. The 2022 head coach Glenn Carey has been appointed as the club’s coaching director, the first-grade associate coach, and the club’s backs coach

Angus Stevenson returns as a second-grade coach, and Peter Altona, as the Colts coach. Darragh O’Byrne will train the women’s program. Locky played 116 professional rugby sports in Super Rugby, the Premiership, the US Major League, the Championship then the Japanese Top League. But his time by the Brumbies watching the likes of Dan McKellar

“I played with so many different teams, you learn so much. The good coaches such as Dan, Pete, and Laurie had an enormous effect on me as a player and as a person.” Locky said.

Despite sendoff the Brumbies in 2020 after winning the premiership to ply his trade overseas. He knew he would be back.

“I always wanted to transition to coaching and this opportunity came at the right time. This is my first knowledge as a head coach, and I am keen to implement some of the things that. I have always been required to do in a club structure.”

Says Locky, “I have a big emphasis on family and competitiveness.”

Peter Hewat and Laurie Fisher at close range heightened his consciousness of the impact good coaches can have on the lives of players under their control.

One area he is intense to develop is recruitment. “We can offer them hands-on skill growth and develop them as expert players.

“For the Eagles, there is no shortage of motivation for the 2023 season. The club is keen to recoil back after missing the finals in 2022. Eagles legend Matt Hawke will play his 200th game, and the Eagles are recurring to their home ground of Nicholls Enclosed. The year-on-year growth of the Under-20 Championship as well as the Straw-hat Series shows. There is cumulative popularity for this part of the game. The fixtures planned for 2023 should build on this. Bringing a real inexpensive edge to the Tournament and providing a true high-performance-based chief into the Junior World Championship, due to resume in 2023.”

I sympathize with Worcester Militaries but why it’s too soon to speculate on the Scotland trio. The English Premiership side was suspended from all competitions on Monday. And placed into administration with debts totalling more than £25 million, including at least £6m in voluntary tax. . Hopefully, even more, fans will enjoy what is set to be additional unmissable Under-20 Six Nations.

Players can switch countries after three years of no international rugby and they or their parents or grandparents were born in the country they wish to represent.

Cooney won his last of 11 caps for Ireland against England in 2020. But the 32-year-old is out of sight from Andy Farrell, the Dubliner said last year. The choice “doesn’t seem like it was my ambition anymore.

John Cooney

If his Irish exile continues, he could declare himself for Scotland in February. Sources in Scotland have suggested Gregor Townsend could arrange for Cooney to contact his team ahead of the global exhibition in 2023.

Ireland and Scotland will play a crucial World Cup pool match at the Stade de France on October 7 next year.

After frustrating experiences with his native Leinster and Connacht. Cooney found his best form in Ulster after arriving in the province in 2017. He quickly became a fan favourite at Kingspan Stadium.

He made his Irish debut against Japan in 2017. Still, Cooney has struggled for international recognition in recent years, with Conor Murray, Jamison Gibson-Park and Craig Casey leading the Irish league table.

Last year, Cooney admitted he was “defeated” by the lack of opportunities in Ireland.

“Every time it gets harder I feel like I’ve done enough, I’ve done everything I’ve been asked to do,” he said in July 2021.

“I said last season they asked me to train with them (during the Six Nations in 2020), it was a game where I should have started before the suspension. I’ve done all the work, I’ve encouraged everyone, and I have well trained.”

“Then I got the call again and I did everything they asked me to, so I feel like I can be proud of what I’ve done, because of everything that’s been asked of me over the years, I’ve done it.”

“I’ve never complained, I’ve worked really hard – even my choice of club, to leave the club and get a foundation role to realize my dream of playing for Ireland.”

“It’s probably not my ambition anymore.”

Welsh women’s attacking coach Richard Whiffin will join the Highlanders in 2023.

Whiffin joined the national coaching staff in September 2021 after spending two years with Ioan Cunningham on the Scarlet team. Rugby World Cup fans can buy Ireland Vs Scotland Tickets from our website.

Before getting involved with rugby in Wales, he was the academy manager of Gloucester Rugby. Before that, he was the attacking coach of the London Irish.

Whiffin said: “I had a really good time in Wales with the Scarlet and the Welsh Women, but the opportunity was something I really couldn’t resist.”

“Super Rugby has always been a big part of my rugby education, from watching TV as a child to learning the game as a coach, so the opportunity to coach at this level is a huge privilege and I am very grateful to Highlanders. Really looking forward to coming to Dunedin and experiencing all it has to offer.”

“But now my priority is to get the team ready for the Rugby World Cup which starts this weekend in Scotland. We can get confidence from the Six Nations beating them, we have trained well since we arrived in New Zealand but now we need details.” will be completed in the coming week.”

Wales head coach Ioan Cunningham added: “‘Whiff’ has been instrumental in the development of our squad over the past 12 months, not only in his attacking role but also on our path to professionalization. We wish all the best for him to go into his next venture.”

The Welsh Rugby Union will look for a new coach in early 2023.

Scottish rugby teams agree to the new governance structure

Scotland Rugby President Colin Rigby hailed the Scottish match last night as a “major milestone”. As member clubs agreed to a new governance structure in an online special meeting.

The new structure is based on recommendations from the Standing Committee on Governance (SCOG), with the new Scottish Rugby Union (a limited liability company) overseeing Scottish rugby, the organization’s main operational vehicle.

It will also provide oversight functions for the members of the group.

The Scottish Rugby Union’s new interim president, Professor Lorne Crerar CBE, promised SGM. That “all promises about a new, well-functioning governance system will be fully delivered.”

Prof Crerar also called on members to play a role in finding “the best people” to serve as “custodians” on the board of the new company.

Colin Rigby thanked the members, SCOG, Scottish Rugby Council and Scottish Rugby staff for their patience in achieving the new structure. Rugby World Cup fans can buy Rugby World Cup 2023 Tickets from our website.

He added: “This is an important milestone in the history of the Scottish Rugby League, with governance, roles and responsibilities now clearly understood by all stakeholders.”

John Jeffrey will remain chairman of the Scottish Rugby Council. Which will continue to oversee the day-to-day operations, and commercial and executive functions of Scottish rugby.

Earlier tonight, members voted unanimously to receive Scottish Rugby’s 2021-22 annual accounts in the second part of the organization’s annual general meeting.

Over the period, total turnover was £57.9m, returning it within 5% of pre-pandemic levels and an increase of £5.5m from the previous year.

Accounts showed a £5.3m shortfall in the underlying business, while strategic investments from private equity partner CVC delivered a £34.2m gain on investment sales, bringing Scottish Rugby’s after-tax net surplus to £29 million came.

Scottish Rugby History

We have a rich history.

Founded in 1873…

The Scottish Football League was founded in 1873 and was changed to 15-a-side in 1877. The International Rugby Committee was founded in 1886 and the Rugby Scoring System was launched in 1889. In 1924, the SFU its name to the Scottish Rugby Union.

The beginning of international rugby

The first international rugby match was played on Monday 27 March 1871 in Raeburn Place, Edinburgh, at the Edinburgh Academy Cricket Ground. Scotland’s first nine international matches have been played on established cricket grounds. A temporary booth was set up at the Raeburn site for £45.

The home of Scottish rugby

In 1897 the then Scottish Football League bought land in Invert. It was the home of Scottish rugby until the first Murrayfield Stadium was built in 1925 and the ground was purchased from the Edinburgh Polo Club.

The Calcutta Cup

The Calcutta Cup was a beautiful silver trophy in honour of the Calcutta Football Club. Which closed just four years after its founding. Scotland and England compete for trophies every year.

The first Calcutta Cup match was played at Edinburgh’s Raeburn Place on March 10, 1879, and ended in a draw – one goal for Scotland and one for England. Since then, Scotland and England have participated in the Calcutta Cup every year except during the two world wars.

Japan announce a huge 52-man training team with an eye on Rugby World Cup 2023

Japan announce a huge 52-man training team with an eye on Rugby World Cup 2023 and history

Japanese manager Jamie Joseph on Friday named a massive 52-man squad to take on New Zealand, England and France, saying he needed to “add depth” to next year’s Rugby World Cup. Japan takes on the All Blacks in Tokyo on October 29, before travelling to Europe to play it against England in November in Twickenham and in Toulouse, France in November. Rugby World Cup 2023 fans can buy Japan Vs Samoa Tickets from our website.

The hosts of the 2019 Rugby World Cup recently defeated France by a narrow margin in two friendlies on home soil, but Joseph said he needed to “prepare more players” to meet the demands of top rugby.

“We don’t have enough depth, we have to deal with a pandemic,” said Joseph.

Who plans to make adjustments to the team ahead of the All Blacks game.

“That means we could lose players at any time and we need to have enough players to come and play in Test matches.”

Joseph named 28 forwards and 24 defenders for the team’s training camp, including winger Kotaro Matsushima, who returned to the Japanese domestic league after a stint with France’s Clermont.

Loose striker Kazuki Himeno also returned after missing two test series against Uruguay and France in June and July due to injury. Joseph will select a Japan A-team for three home games against Australia A in October in preparation for three exhibition games.

Coaching such a large team “isn’t as easy as it sounds,” he said.

“There are 50 players and we need to get them to keep up with the way we want to play,” said New Zealand-born Joseph.

“It takes some time and some planning.”

Joseph said his party’s two wins against Uruguay and two defeats against France “reasonably reflected” their position.

Japan led France until the 71st minute in the second Test in Tokyo, but eventually lost 20-15. Japan drew next year at the World Cup in France with Chile, England, Samoa and Argentina.

Japanese national rugby union team intensifies training a year before Rugby World Cup

Thursday is a year before the Rugby World Cup kicks off in France. The Japanese national team is strengthening with new goals and new themes.

Brave Blossoms has set itself the target of reaching the semi-finals of the World Cup, which starts on September 8 next year.

Under the slogan “One Team”, the team reached the quarterfinals in the 2019 event in Japan for the first time.

One of the team’s themes this season is ‘our team’. This means that every player must be willing to take the initiative to lead. Rugby World Cup fans can buy England Vs Japan Tickets from our website.

Head coach Jamie Joseph wants to strengthen his team with practice matches against world powers.

In October and November, Brave Blossoms takes on New Zealand, the United Kingdom and France. Which are ahead of Japan worldwide. About 50 players attended a training camp in Oita Prefecture in southwestern Japan. Joseph hopes to cultivate new talents for the national team through fierce competition.

Rugby’s popularity in Japan skyrocketed as it reached the quarter-finals of the 2019 World Cup.

A major travel agency said it had received many inquiries about travelling to the 2023 World Cup. It started selling tours in April and had to organize a raffle. Because there were 2.6 times more registrations than the 2015 World Cup in England. An agency official said the man who became a rugby fan during the World Cup three years ago appeared to want to play on tour.

Japan at the Rugby World Cup

The Japanese national team has competed in every Rugby World Cup since the inaugural Rugby World Cup in 1987. They are so far the only team to have reached the Rugby World Cup through Asian regional qualifiers.

In 2019, they advanced to the quarter-finals for the first time in the competition, becoming the first team in Asia to participate.

Japan's first win was a 52-8 win over Zimbabwe in the 1991 tournament
Japan’s first win was a 52-8 win over Zimbabwe in the 1991 tournament

Their best performance was at the 2015 Rugby World Cup. Japan defeated South Africa 34-32 in their opening billiards match in what has been called the “biggest Rugby World Cup shock ever”. They defeated Samoa and the United States in billiards.

They have four wins and three losses in billiards, the same as Scotland and South Africa. But unlike the other two, Japan didn’t score any extra points, so the other two advanced to the quarter-finals.

Japan’s first win was a 52-8 win over Zimbabwe in the 1991 tournament under Coach Hiroaki Shukuzawa. Their worst loss came at the 1995 Rugby World Cup when they lost 145-17 to New Zealand. A loss blamed on putting the Japanese Rugby League back a few years.

Since then, at the 2003 World Cup in Australia, the Japanese team, coached by Shogo Mukai, was hailed. As one of the best among the so-called “minnow” countries, winning many new Japanese and foreign fans. But the team did not stay in and managed to win every game.

In the 2007 Rugby World Cup, Japan drew at the last minute against Canada to avoid the bottom of Group B. However, they did not win any matches and did not reach the knockout stage.

Japan first hosted the event during the 2019 Rugby World Cup and reached the quarter-finals.

On this day in 2015 – Japan defeated South Africa in the Rugby World Cup

Japan’s biggest shock in Rugby World Cup history was a 34-32 win over a mighty South African team at the Amex Stadium in Brighton. Rugby World Cup 2023 fans can buy Japan Rugby World Cup Tickets from our website.

Karne Hesketh’s 84-minute effort gave Brave Blossoms a stunning performance. That sank the two-time world champion and rubbed Coach Eddie Jones at his eyes in disbelief.

Japan defeated South Africa in the Rugby World Cup

Jones admitted: “Japan beat South Africa, I had to look at the scoreboard at the end to see if it was real.”

“We hung out there. It seemed like there was a phase where when they were seven they would run away.

“That would have been a normal situation, like the horror story of that woman who takes a shower after midnight, and you know what to expect.

“Usually they score three or four points and it’s 50-20 and everyone says, ‘Well done Japan, you’ve worked hard, you’re brave. But we’re not just brave.”

Instead, it was South Africans who starred in their own horror films.

Halfway through the first half, they were down 10-7 thanks to an effort by Japanese-born New Zealand captain Michael Leitch who made up for Francois Louw’s score. But after Bismarck Du Plessis came in, they had a two-point lead at half-time.

Lood De Jager and Adriaan Strauss scored under the post in the second half. But the attempt by fullback Ayumu Goromaru and his cowardly kick made it 29-29 for Japan with 10 minutes to go.

At least South Africa looked to be able to avoid a humiliating defeat. When Handre Pollard took the penalty with five minutes to go.

But Japan’s relentless pressure paid off, and instead of a drawn penalty. They were rewarded for their bravery when Hesketh scored from a left corner.

South Africa coach Heyneke Meyer said: “We let our country down, we didn’t do well enough, but it’s all thanks to Japan, who played really well.”

“I’ve said before that this is going to be the toughest World Cup ever and I think there will be more shocks to come. I still believe we can win the World Cup, but I have to press some hard buttons to fix it.”

Rugby World Cup: South Africa Rugby announces Nike as new Springboks apparel sponsor

Springbok coach Jacques Nienaber pointed to the positive results of the rugby tournament. South Africa Rugby has announced that the Springboks will be wearing Nike apparel again in 2023 after their contract with ASICS expires in 2022. Nike and South African Rugby have signed a six-year deal, including the Rugby World Cup in 2023 and 2027. Rugby World Cup 2023 fans can buy South Africa Vs Romania Tickets from our website.

Nike, a clothing partner from July 2023, will provide off-field game equipment, apparel and footwear for all South African national teams, as well as off-field game equipment, apparel and footwear for the Boks and Springbok Women, Men’s and Women’s Sevens and Junior Boxing clothing and footwear.

SA Rugby’s Nike deal will take over current partner ASICS, whose contract expires at the end of 2022.

South Africa Rugby CEO Jurie Roux said: “We have an excellent relationship with ASICS and are very grateful for the company’s contributions over the past eight years.”

“It is always sad to see an important partner leave, but we understand that business strategies can change over time and we wish ASICS all the best as it continues its journey in South Africa.”

Carsten Unbehaun, CEO of ASICS EMEA, said: “ASICS has been a sponsor of the South African Rugby Union (SARU) since 2014 and supports their national teams including the famous Blitzboks Sevens and Springboks teams.

“However, since 2020, ASICS EMEA is adapting its activities to focus on the main sports categories; running, tennis and indoor sports. As such, following an agreement with SARU, ASICS will not renew the contract. We would like to thank SARU for passing the following way to provide support over the years and wish the team all the best.”

This will be the second time the famous Swoosh has graced the front of a Springbok jersey, as Nike was the team’s apparel partner from 1996 to 2003. Nike jerseys will hit the shelves in July 2023.

“We are delighted to welcome Nike on board, an iconic global brand whose vision to partner with Springbok impressed us from our very first conversation,” said Roux.

“Nike has big plans for a partnership and we look forward to officially launching our new alliance next year.”

Rugby World Cup winner Siya Kolisi poses with Klopp and Thiago during Liverpool training

On Wednesday there was a special guest at the AXA Training Center in Liverpool, attended by the Rugby World Cup winner and South African captain Siya Kolisi.

A huge Liverpool fan, Kolisi led the Springboks to the World Cup in the November 2019 final against England.

Later that month, a chance meeting with Jurgen Klopp in Cape Town led to his invitation to Liverpool’s Champions League clash with Napoli, his first chance to see The Reds live at Anfield.

Earlier this week, Kolisi fulfilled another dream: to see Klopp again with the help of Adidas ZA and see Liverpool players participate in Wednesday’s training. Rugby World Cup fans can buy South Africa Vs Tonga Tickets from our website.

The South African rugby star posted some images of Virgil van Dijk’s match on Instagram, as well as a photo with Klopp and Thiago, whom he called “the magician”.

Kolisi was there with his wife Rachel, who described the day on her Instagram as a “dream come true”.

In 2019, having just won the World Cup, he explained his doubts after meeting Klopp.

“I was sitting there with South African cricket captain Faf du Plessis and when I saw him come in I almost fell off my chair because I couldn’t believe it,” he told Liverpool FC at the time.

“He went to the bathroom and I was outside waiting for him to come out.

“I was too scared to ask him [to chat], so I just gave him my phone because I knew someone who knew him. Then he came up to me and said, ‘Man, you can ask. I know that you who are, we watched the final.” So that really struck me.”

“Then he talked to us for 40 minutes.”

Kolisi went on to explain that his admiration for Steven Gerrard as a young man, especially his leadership, “touched his heart.”

Let’s hope Kolisi, as the World Cup winner, has some inspiring advice for Liverpool players as they embark on their busy pre-World Cup schedule.

Rugby united the country and saved South Africa from military conflict
Rugby united the country and saved South Africa from military conflict

How South African Rugby Players United the Nation In 1995

In 1995 South Africa was on the brink of civil war. The divide between the country’s black and white populations has reached a tipping point and problems seem inevitable.

But suddenly, in 1995, rugby united the country and saved South Africa from military conflict. By the way, if you not only like to read about rugby but are also a daring player.

“White South Africa”. The party’s platform included an apartheid policy, the main slogan of the National’s campaign during South Africa’s first post-war elections. Which consisted only of the oppression of the black population. They are not allowed to vote, they are not allowed to stay in cities where white people live, they are not allowed to enter white companies, they are not hired, they are not allowed to marry white people and many other things are restricted.

The nightmare lasted until 1994, when Nelson Mandela, a black Nobel Peace Prize laureate, became the country’s president. It was Mandela who made possible the first free elections and started to change lives in this country. Rugby World Cup 2023 fans can buy South Africa Vs Ireland Tickets from our website.

The country’s new president decided to repeal most of the apartheid laws, but the legal process was not completed overnight and a section of the black population was so desperate for their long-awaited freedom that they didn’t want to wait. White people are frankly afraid of being oppressed.

Everyone needs a signal, a signal that everything is going to be okay.

The signal came from a place they hadn’t expected. One of Mandela’s plans was to develop sports and increase South Africa’s international exposure. Finally, international sanctions against the country, which prevented the national team from participating in major competitions, were lifted. The South African rugby team in specific missed two Rugby World Cups.

Mandela not only defended the national team’s right to participate in the World Cup but also ensured that South Africa becomes the host country of this World Cup.

The South African rugby team in particular missed two Rugby World Cups

One country – One team

In the beginning, not everything went smoothly. The slogan “One Nation – One Team” seems to be a mockery of black people. They don’t believe white athletes have empathy. Also, people cheered their teams more. How strong is that hatred?

However, Mandela took a series of measures that fundamentally changed the situation. He invited the captain of the national team, Francois Pienaar, to his home and discussed with him

Unite the people of the land. The wise decision was to send the best rugby player in the country to prison, where Mandela spent 27 years. But only one day they wrote about it in all the papers. The players’ passionate displays of support for black people and calls to unite for the most important games have not gone unnoticed.

The moment of unification

The day before the final, Mandela personally came to the team’s training ground and spoke to every member of the team. The captain of the South African national team handed over the national team jersey to the president. Of course, New Zealand is considered the most popular and they are much more technical, but sometimes the sport isn’t all about skill. Hundreds of thousands of fans sided with the host. The players of the team have become heroes!

With the frenzied support from the stands, whites and blacks came to cheer on their favourites and the South Africans began the most important game of their lives. And win in overtime.

Nelson Mandela arrived at the awards ceremony wearing the same uniform and hat the players gave him. They then handed the white captain the trophy for winning the World Cup. This is a time to unite the nation, which is enjoyed by all, regardless of colour or wealth. The moment that saved an entire country from civil war.

Eddie Jones learns from Navy Seals to advance England's Rugby World Cup mission

Eddie Jones learns from Navy Seals to advance England’s Rugby World Cup mission

Eddie Jones has exposed that he will use the level of training used by the US Navy Seals in their hunt for Osama bin Laden to schedule England RWC 2023 in France. The England head coach spent two days with the US Navy’s elite combat unit at the San Diego base in early September, learning how to deal with a major setback in a 2011 mission called Operation Neptune Spear.

Which ran alongside Bin Laden, the leader of al-Qaeda was killed. England manager visits US Special Forces to help his players think quickly under pressure.

For England coach Eddie Jones, winning next year’s RWC 2023 looks like a classic obstacle course.

“In the Cheltenham Gold Cup, there could be Ireland and France, nose and nose, all the way up front. New Zealand and South Africa will be one or two behind, and we’re just behind. But we’re in control right now tight, so in the end, we still have a lot to do in 400 games. Do you see the vision?”

Few would question his assessment of the crowded field, but as Jones well realizes. The key to his England squad is how quickly they can accelerate up the hill between now and next September. His first practice line-up of the season offers some guidance. But the fall line-up he officially announces on October 17 will be a better indicator.

Eddie Jones

Regardless of who gets called up, however, Jones is more focused on working out his team’s thinking under pressure. Watching an exciting rugby tournament and a tense start to the Premier League recently has reaffirmed him. That a well-thought-out A-plan alone is not enough for an ambitious team.

He was particularly shocked by the recent National Rugby League match between his favourite team. The Rabbitohs, and their Sydney rivals, the Roosters.

“They’ve scored 8 sin-bins, 5 HIAs [head injury assessments], 5 out of 8 attempts by an understaffed team. That’s the kind of landscape we’re going into.”

Factor in the increased number of the game breaks: “It’s a bad part of our game right now – too many suspensions,” Jones believes that coaches and players need to be more flexible than ever.

“Probably 25% of the game is uncontrollable right now, due to the sin-bins, HIA and odd numbers in the game. So we need to be able to adapt to the games that will be played at that time. It’s difficult. The world can. There aren’t many teams. In fact, I can’t name a name right now. So it’s a great opportunity for us.”

The key to his England RWC 2023 squad is how quickly they can accelerate up the hill

“We need to find the right balance of people, skills and mindset to lead the team into the most volatile environment in rugby we’ve ever seen.”

US Navy Seals

Few football coaches hone their team’s skills, Jones was in California this month to study how US Navy Seals train. While checking in with Osama bin Laden. Still, Jones learned how US Special Forces responded when faced with the threat of a terrorist attack. At a critical time in their mission in Pakistan in the May 2011 disaster.

Helicopters carrying the Seals were intended to circle the compound. So that the troops could descend to the ground via ropes. In the event that the tail of the helicopter hits the top of the perimeter of the compound and crashes on its side.

“I was lucky enough to spend a few days with the Navy Seals in San Diego and see how we can better prepare our players for the unexpected. It was fascinating. They practised the entire Osama program for 12 months. They did it first But then they were able to cope and complete [mission] in 38 minutes.”

“So you’re looking at our analogy now: it’s 12 months until the World Cup and we’re planning a game with 35 minutes of playing time. So the opportunity to rehearse, and get the players ready for what’s to come, whether it’s the first round, the second round or the third round, are all opportunities. Exciting, right?”

Players will also experience another "misogi", a variation of Japanese
Players will also experience another “misogi”, a variation of Japanese

Whether France, Ireland or New Zealand will effectively be compared to the founders of al-Qaeda is still a day away. But Jones is clearly looking for players. Kyle Sinckler was forced to leave early who can handle adversity better than England in the Japan Rugby World Cup final in 2019.

With that in mind, he’s gearing up for what he describes as a “mini-hell” as his team plans to travel to Jersey next month for the fall test. Players will also experience another “misogi”, a variation of Japanese ritual purification practices. That leaves previous campaigns in preparation for a new one.

The end result, Jones hopes, will be a team ready for anything. Just as he must be a young teacher himself in central Sydney.

“We used to have to take the kids to the park at lunchtime and the teachers had to go get the syringes. I remember working there for three months unpaid.”

Though he has deep sympathy for everyone in battered Worcester. As they try to navigate their way through their rough times, his eyes remain firmly on the jackpot.

“I’ve never played rugby for fun. I played rugby to build a good team, play well and win.”

Some things never change uncertain world or not.

Simmonds selection could set a precedent

England will not opt for foreign players, but the apparent green light for Symonds to represent his country at next year’s RWC 2023 could encourage other players considering a move to France to follow suit. Rugby World Cup 2023 fans can buy South Africa Vs Romania Tickets from our website.

“As far as I know the rule is that if you sign with an English club and you finish a season with that club and you haven’t signed a contract that has gone into effect for the Rugby World Cup then you are eligible to play for England to play.” Jones Say.

Kolbe guidelines Northern giants ‘ favourites’ at Rugby World Cup

South African Rugby World Cup winner Cheslin Kolbe said France is a “favourite” for next year’s tournament.

Les Bleus defeated New Zealand in November before winning their first Six Nations title since 2010 in March.

The league hosts are in Group A, and the three-time champions are the All Blacks, Italy, Uruguay and Japan.

“I think the French guys are definitely the favourites going to the World Cup,” Kolbe told Canal.

“Especially now that the Rugby World Cup is being held in France, it’s good for them,” he added at the annual French rugby awards ceremony.

Defending champion Kolbe Springboks is in Group B with Ireland, Scotland, Tonga and Romania.

Three-quarters of Toulon missed the recent rugby tournament for his country with a broken jaw.

Three years later, after winning the Webb Ellis Trophy in Japan, he will be back in time for the Springboks

November Tests against France, Italy, Ireland and England.

“The World Cup is in 11 months. Time flies fast since Japan,” said Kolbe.

“It would be nice for the Springboks to keep the trophy, but France did very well in the Six Nations,” he added.

How to win the Rugby World Cup - Perform your best

How to win the Rugby World Cup – Perform your best

INTERNATIONAL RUGBY has become the sports version of Play Your Cards Right, minus the presence of Bruce Forsyth as a presenter, a survey of 100 people and a large number of TV viewers on Saturday night. At a time when rugby is being analyzed more widely and more deeply than ever. Rugby World Cup fans can buy Rugby World Cup 2023 Tickets from our website.

One area of the game remains so blatant that it makes you wonder why so many coaches aren’t involved. It’s simple: keep 15 of your players in the park and your chances of winning will skyrocket.

Rugby World Cup: Andy Farrell deliberately paused before answering, stared at his inquisitor
Andy Farrell deliberately paused before answering, stared at his inquisitor

Despite the obvious bloodshed being said here, only one top international team will adhere to this policy in 2022, Six Nations champions France. Is it just a coincidence that the team that put the most pressure on them in that game was the only team that didn’t get a card for the entire game?

To answer that, we need to take you to the tidy clubhouse at Jerry Collins Stadium on the eve of the third Irish Summer Tour of New Zealand, where local reporters asked Irish head coach Andy Farrell a question about the high-tackle’s ruling.

Farrell deliberately paused before answering, stared at his inquisitor, and then quietly pointed out that the rules of the game were a bit like the weather. Complaining about it won’t change anything.

“There are teams that are playing on the edge, we want to keep the number of penalties low,” said Farrell.

This seems like a minor problem. But it’s actually a big one.

Staying your best is a rugby game right now, with successful teams preparing to lose certain clashes – and sometimes even score – in order to keep their full complement of players on the pitch. It paid off. Consider this statistic.

In this year’s match involving nine of the world’s leading teams – New Zealand, South Africa, Australia, Argentina, France, Ireland, England, Wales and Scotland – the effect of yellow and red cards on the outcome was astonishing, with overwhelming numbers. The team outperformed their penalized opponent by 233 points during the sin-binning to 31 points.

Such was the fate of Angus Tavao-Matau in Dunedin
Such was the fate of Angus Tavao-Matau in Dunedin

This is the context we should use as we revisit Farrell’s philosophy. “There are teams playing in the margins; we want to keep the free throws low.”

Certain teams, especially New Zealand and Australia, are struggling to adapt and their DNA is still in the margins. Do you remember the All Blacks’ ferocity against Ireland in Dublin in 2016, when they lost to Joe Schmidt’s team in Chicago a few weeks later? Robbie Henshaw and CJ Stander, who both suffered concussions in that match, should never forget that.

Interestingly, looking back on these events six years later, neither Sam Cane nor Israel Dagg has been given a map to face these challenges. According to the rules updated today, they see red. Rugby World Cup fans can buy rwc 2023 Tickets from our website.

Such was the fate of Angus Tavao-Matau in Dunedin, with his high tackle on Garry Ringrose during the second Irish Summer Tour Test. Ta’avao-Matau’s red card, combined with yellow cards to Leicester Fainga’anuku and Ofa Tu’ungafasi, meant Ireland had a numerical advantage in 54 minutes of that test.

They were even better earlier this year, as they walked away from a tired England in the final quarter of the Six Nations, with a record win for Ireland at Twickenham. Their hosts’ careers were severely hampered by Charlie Ewels’ red card in the first minute.

Are these examples of Irish luck or good Irish behaviour?

Let’s look at the evidence.

Ireland has retained 10 or fewer penalties in 13 of their last 16 matches. They received two yellow cards in 2022, while their opponents received five yellow cards and three red cards. Ireland’s last red card came 15 months ago for Bundee Aki against England.

Has this meticulous approach paid off? Well, judge for yourself. Ireland has a numerical advantage of 198 minutes in the 640 minutes of this year’s international rugby. In that period, they beat their opponents by 23 points by 99 points.

This is the context we should use as we revisit Farrell’s philosophy. “There are teams playing in the margins; we want to keep the free throws low.”

Ironically, Ireland won important matches – against England at Twickenham and New Zealand at Wellington – while losing penalties. However, there is clearly a clear policy to avoid picking up cheap cards by repeatedly insulting and adjusting tackling techniques to reduce their yellow and red numbers.

This is the key to success. A low number of penalties helps – France is a textbook example of a team that has taken a naughty step. At the 2019 Six Nations, they had the highest number of free throws in the game when Jacques Brunel was their coach. This year they came second and won a Grand Slam.

But the low penalty kick alone is no guarantee as Ireland misses four penalties in the opening test of New Zealand’s All Blacks Tour at Eden Park. New Zealand won 42-19.

It’s the cards that cost the team. England looked like they beat Scotland in this year’s Six Nations until Luke Cowan-Dickie’s early intervention when he deliberately pushed the ball to the point of contact. They lost by three points and Cowan Dickey’s indiscretion and yellow card changed the game.

A week later we moved on to Scotland-Wales. At the end of it, there are only three points separating the edges. You may remember Finn Russell was shown a yellow card in the draw and Dan Biggar scored the winning goal in his absence.

It’s New Zealand v Argentina in Hamilton a few weeks ago. The All Blacks were chasing the game when Shannon Frizell was booked with 10 minutes to go. New Zealand eventually lost by seven points. It was the Cougars’ first away win over New Zealand.

The controversy over the weekend involved French referee Mathieu Raynal and his decision to penalize Bernard Foley for wasting time at the end of the 76-point thriller between the Wallabies and All Blacks.

“Man, this cost us the rugby championship,” Australian captain Nic White told Raynal afterwards.

Rennie's win rate fluctuated below 40 per cent
Rennie’s win rate fluctuated below 40 per cent

The obvious answer is, not really, but New Zealand’s relentless 21 points proved to be different. As Australia was reduced to 14 players at various stages of the game.

It often has. All told, the Wallabies have received 22 yellow and red cards in 29 games under Coach Dave Rennie and are currently at an all-time low in the world rankings, with Rennie’s win rate fluctuating below 40 per cent. They are a good example of a team not adapting to the new law.

They are not alone.

In their last two encounters, South Africa and Argentina had 10 players on the map, with 56 unanswered players. A team that had a numerical advantage under Simbin.

There are many more examples, the Welsh being the best of them all. Let’s go back to their South African summer vacation. Wales led 18-3 in the first Test of the series. Four yellow cards helped the Springboks make a comeback. South Africa won 32-29.

A year ago, at the 2021 Six Nations Championship. It was a very different story, with the Welshman maintaining discipline. While everyone else – including Ireland’s Peter O’Mahony – lost it. If playing 66 minutes with the extras helped Wales against Ireland. The dismissal of Zander Fagerson arguably had a greater impact the following week, with Wales taking victory from the jaws of defeat, the result of Fagerson’s red card.

Next up was England, with Wales taking penalties en route to winning the match. Then there was Italy, who coughed up 28 unanswered points from the Welshman when they had players in the bin. Wales is the champion.

They also become Grand Slam champions if they dodge a yellow card in the last ten minutes of their last title match with France. Unfortunately, the 12-point lead disappeared in the closing minutes when two of their players went into the sin bin.

Champions in 2021, Wales set the second-worst disciplinary record in 2022, indeed finishing the competition in the bottom two.

This is modern rugby. Those who play the best poker skills win in the end. It was only a matter of time before the secret got out.

Rugby World Cup: History of Romanian Rugby

Rugby World Cup: History of Romanian Rugby

Born in 1823 on the “Big Side” of Rugby Town University, England, during a football match, student William Webb Ellis, annoyed by his inability to score, put the ball under his arm and ran to the opposite goal, the goal, rugby appeared in Romanian in 1913. The new sport was brought to the country by some young people who had studied in the UK and France with “strange skin ingredients, pork belly, gogonata and jumpy” in their baggage.

The first Romanian rugby players were: Grigore Caracostea, the four Iconomu brothers, Constantin Cratunescu, Henri Manu, Nae Marascu, Vidrascu brothers, Puia Volvoreanu, Misu Vardalla, Hussar and Tanasescu brothers, Sorin Michailescu, etc.

These Romanian rugby” fathers played their first game in an open space that appeared to be behind a statue of Mihai Viteazul across the street from the university. Perhaps there they had their first training, where they stripped off their clothes and were intimidated by the shameful looks of passers-by, where they got ready for the game.

Romanian rugby

Where they made their first pass or attempt with the oval ball. Their first “transformation” But where this romantic act also takes place, in which clearing, one fact must be recorded: Romanian rugby was born in Bucharest.

The origin of the sport in our country goes back to 1909. Subsequently, various tennis, athletics, fencing, cycling, football teams and sports associations were formed. The Iconomu brothers, Husar brothers and Dumitru Tanasescu are all promoters of rugby. However, one of the associations called the Tennis Club of Roman (TCR) did not have a rugby team, to begin with. On December 1, 1912, the “Federation of Sports Societies of Romania” (FSSR) was established, including the activities of all these teams.

A report by the first sports association recorded the rise of rugby in our country, with its official registration in 1913, the establishment of the Rugby-Rugby Committee in 1914 and the Romanian Rugby Federation in 1931.

The first three major teams to enter the competitive activity dominated, were recorded in the initial phase: “TCR” (1910), “Stadiul Roman” (1915) and Societatea Universitara Studentul Sportul (1915); 1922 “Avantul Sportiv” and “Bucharest Football Club” Founded; in 1919 the first provincial workers’ clubs appeared: “Jiul” in Lupeni and “Minierul” in Petrosani.

Central Committee of the FSSR

On September 8, 1913, the first rugby match in Romania was played between “TCR” and “Sporting Club”. In June 1913, at a reception of the Central Committee of the FSSR, the mayor of the capital, Grigore Cantacuzino, decided that during its existence the town hall would give up the symbolic rent of one lei per year, the land of Şosea, which from then on was called “Federal”, known in the name of.

Covering a total area of approximately 25 hectares, it was bisected by the then avenue leading to the agricultural school, currently known as Aleea Strandului (Tineretului). On March 9, 1914, the grounds of the FSSR Park were inaugurated. Rugby World Cup fans can buy South Africa Vs Romania Tickets from our website.

In 1915 the first rules of the game were established and the arbitration table was introduced.

On the international stage, Romanian rugby made its debut on the occasion of the Allied games at the Pershing military in Paris in 1919. Our team was beaten 21-0 by the United States, followed by a 48-5 defeat to France. At the 8th Olympic Games in 1924, Romania took part in the Olympic Games for the first time along with France and the United States.

Romanian lost both matches 59-3 and 37-0, and the United States defeated France 18-3 in the final. The first Olympic medal (Bronze) was brought to the country in 1924 by the following rugby team: Dumitru Armaşel, Gh. Bentia, Teodor Marian, Nicolae Marascu, Sorin Michailescu, Mircea Sfetescu, Sterian Soare, Tudor Florian, Ion Garleşteanu, Paul Nedelcovici, Iosif Nemeş, Paul Vidraşcu, Gogu Sfetescu, Mihai Vardalla, Dumitru Volvoreanu, and Atanasie Tanasescu.

The 1950s to the 1980s were the first positive period, with victories over English and French clubs and teams in two games. Intense internal developments were then recorded – in terms of numbers, areas and real technical and tactical progress and sporting achievements. For example, the 11-5 victory over France in 1960 achieved its first victory, followed by seven more victories.

We should also mention the wins against the following teams: Swansea, Cardiff, Sel. London, UK, Harlequins et al.

During this period, the Romanians began to form an alliance with the rugby powers. First win over France in 1960, 1976 championships in New Zealand. The opportunity to play against the best countries in the sport contributes to the development of Romanian rugby.

The real strength of the “Oaks” came in a test match against Wales in Cardiff in 1979: the Romanians led the game to a close, the Welsh conceded a last-minute goal and went on to win 13-12 Beat France 15-0 and Ireland 13-13.
