The Not So Independent, Independent Commission?

By Daniel Andruczyk So you really need to have been under a rock 6 miles underground the last year to not know about the “Independent Commission” that is supposedly being set up in Australia to control the game. I say supposedly because the last few weeks I have been thinking about it, reading the various articles that are coming out etc… and well I don’t think there will be anything independent about it! In fact...

Lezignan Lose Their First

By Daniel Andruczyk This week we await with anticipation the new commission in Australia that will run Rugby League.

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. Now this seems fairly uneventful but to me its interesting that these matches are called test matches. Looking at the team: Mate Moeakiola (Bobigny 93) Phil Thiel (Life University) Shawn Pittman (London Welsh) Scott Lavalla (Dublin...
