GRR: Rugby World Cup
World Rugby has released its summer Test Match list, and this has confirmed the Rugby World Cup Qualifier games for the USA Men's National 15s team.
Jonah Lomu died today, November 17, a huge loss to the world rugby community. I thought I would just give you some thoughts about this player.
If you are young, you might not know who he was, perhaps you think he was just another one of those old guys. But Lomu, while the dominant wing in the game from 1994-1999, was much more than that.
Among the things we asked USA 15s Head Coach Mike Tolkin in our recent interview with him was whether he wanted to stay on as coach.
Tolkin said he definitely did, but knew that decision was in the hands of the Board. There’s still work to do, said Tolkin, and added that the team itself is going to undergo plenty of change.
In a can't miss show, well-known coach and rugby writer Eamonn Hogan joins Alex and Bruce to talk about the Rugby World Cup - the big games, the big issues.
The panel touches on the Eagles a little, as well as the refs, the Tier 2 nations, whether Scotland got hosed, and whether England's leadership should be tarred and feathered.
Having spoken about the USA team in detail, with a lot of it not very positive, there comes a time to think about this in positive ways.
Perhaps, then, we can look back at the Rugby World Cup with these memories, one video and one in description.
