RE: And the winner of the RWC broadcasting rights is...
Apple TV app should be good to go before RWC so no need to Airplay from iPhone.
RE: 2019 Rugby World Cup
9 strong teams. Is a good place for rugby to be. I'll try to remember this silver lining if we have a horror tournament .....
9 strong teams suggests there won't be a dud quarter final match-up for the first time. Essentially all four games could go either way.
... unless a Fiji/Japan/Georgia cause an upset in pool play and are pitted against a powerhouse in the quarters.
RE: Crusaders 2019
With Brett Cameron still developing (and it won’t matter how dominant he might look in the upcoming NPC he still won’t be Super Rugby ready), I could see the Crusaders going for another Mike Delany.
Not sure there will be anyone of his ilk running around in the NPC this season. Beaver perhaps?
Another option is to loan out Bateman to a needy NPC team (Southland maybe) to play a full season at 10 as preparation for a role as the Crusaders third first-five.
RE: Exodus 2019
Bastareaud will be joined in MLR by Adam Thomson, who's making his rugby comeback in Utah.
Awesome to see him back on the field after his near-death experience...
RE: The Moment
These images instantly jump into my mind when someone mentions the various World Cup years
87… John Kirwan shredding the corner flag with a try in the final
91… Tuigamala going full Lomu against Italy, four years before Lomu arrived on the scene
95… Kronfeld bagging five-pointers by hanging of Lomu’s shoulder all tournament
99… Wilson suffering dizzy spells after being turned inside out by the French
03… the best and worst of Spencer: between the legs pass to Rokocoko / pass to Mortlock
07… Ngwenya skinning Habana
11… Dagg on the outside to set up Nonu’s semi final try
15… Carter’s flick pass to Savea before he Lomu’ed the French
