Atlantic Cup 2010 – Day 3, The Presser!

By Daniel Andruczyk Today was an early start for me, 4 am to be precise. I had World League this morning with Chris on HKC Radio and that was at 5 am. Despite getting the interview with Romeo Monteith and Dean Thomas last night a technical hitch didn’t get the interview aired but it is added onto the pod cast for you to listen to. After a light breakfast and production meeting of the days and weeks events (if the...

Why are we so Negative?

By Daniel Andruczyk So i read earlier today a fairly innocuous article involving the USA Rugby Union. They are on a tour at the moment in Portugal, Scotland and Georgia to play TEST’s.

Looking at the team: Mate Moeakiola (Bobigny 93) Phil Thiel (Life University) Shawn Pittman (London Welsh) Scott Lavalla (Dublin...

Food for thought…

By Daniel Andruczyk So a short, yet interesting post today, I hope. I got an email from John Slade at Estonian Rugby, so over there the governing body covers not only Union but League as well. The email is about Russian Rugby Unions search for players for their team in the Union World Cup. “Any New Zealand based rugby player – or indeed anybody from Estonia, if they are willing to travel – who has at least one...

By Daniel Andruczyk So what to make of the weeks results? The European Cup certainly has thrown up some interesting, yet positive debate I feel. For the first time in a long time I think we can genuinely talk about who really is the 4th best country in the world of Rugby League?
