Southern Hemisphere rugby nations have shocked the rugby world by saying
they may not want to be involved in the Rugby World Cup in future years
because it costs them money.
Simply put, nation teams do not tour New Zealand (the key union vocal about
this issue), Australia or South Africa during June and July in World Cup
years. Those tours bring crucial income to the host nations... Read More
The biggest game of the early college season takes place in Ohio
Saturday when ninth-ranked Bowling Green hosts No. 12 Indiana.
Indiana head coach Chuck Fultz, who’s been with the Mudsharks for five
years, has never beaten Bowling Green. No current Mudshark player has ever
beaten Bowling Green. To say Indiana really wants to beat Bowling Green
would be a massive understatement... Read More
And so ends, most likely, the tenure of the USA Men’s National Team Head
Coach, Eddie O’Sullivan.
It’s unlikely he will return because three years is often long enough for a
coach these, days; because O’Sullivan has some other jobs offers to pursue

neither was anyone else. They really, really played their guts out.
Our issue at RUGBYMag.com is with their approach and pattern of play, which
isn't up to the players. So you won't see a lot of "he screwed up here," or
"he was... Read More

Italy leads the USA 20-10 at halftime of their 2011 Rugby World Cup match
Tuesday, Sept. 27 in Nelson, New Zealand.
Italy has mastered the scrum over the USA, but the Eagles have got to feel
as if they are playing against 16 players, as referee George Clancy has
refused to penalize Italy for early shoves on the scrum, managed to block
John van der Giessen from making what would... Read More
The USA national team crossed the Cook Strait to play in tonight’s final
Rugby World Cup match.
This will be the Eagles’ only venture to New Zealand’s South Island, and
it’s a small trip, to the northernmost edge of the region, Nelson. The city
