  • Risks/threats and opportunities of expanding Super Rugby in North America?

    Best answer: The competition is already completely bloated (Australia is going to cull one of their franchises) and goes on seemingly forever. When it was a 10/12/14 team comp it was much better.

    With that being said, North America is a market that World Rugby would dearly love to get into.

    In all honesty, league is ahead for once. The Toronto Wolfpack are in England's third tier and through 7 matches haven't lost (they could end up being promoted in their first year) and the team is definitely getting some interest here in Toronto (CBC Sports has signed on to stream all of their games and they have a TV deal with another entity). Plus, Canada and the USA will host the 2025 Rugby League World Cup (union should have chosen to play the 2023 RWC in North America but didn't). So it's entirely possible that North America will host the 2025 RLWC, and possibly soccer's FIFA World Cup (along with Mexico) the following year.

    "If" you brought Super Rugby to North America, where does the team play? Keep in mind that Pro Rugby went under after one year (US-based comp). Is it a "North America" combined US/Canada team, or do you have two franchises playing?

    If you play during the spring you're up against baseball and the conclusion of the NBA and NHL seasons (too much going on).

    Best answer: He's only sorry because he was caught. had he not been caught, he would continue to do it for as long as he can get away with it, and fake everything as if nothing was going on.

    He's kissing up to you probably because he fears the judgment and publicity of this getting out and ruining his reputation, not to mention the messy processes of separation or divorce.

    I'm sorry to say this, but I would never trust him again. He knew the affair was wrong to the marriage and unfair to you, but he did it anyway. Cheaters are not to be trusted. You deserve better. you were faithful to him, but he wasn't to you. You deserve a man that will be faithful always.

  • What do you think of the Italian tactics in the 6 Nations game against England?

    Best answer: It reminded me of what you'd see in a game of rugby league. If the Poms did this they'd hail it as genius; because a second-tier nation does it somehow it's a disgrace.

  • In rugby can you score a drope goal from a kick off?

    Best answer: No -- drop goals have to be scored from "general play" (IRB Law 9.A.1) which means you can't do it from a restart. It also has to go through at least one phase of play before being taken from free kick or a scrum in lieu of a free kick. Edit: John -- neither Law 3 (which deals with the players... show more

    Edit: John -- neither Law 3 (which deals with the players eligible for play) -- nor Law 13 which deals with restarts says anything about allowing a drop goal from a restart.

    Best answer: League is far more exciting as the quality of handling and passing is vastly superior to Union. Also the pace of the game is much quicker in League then it is in Union and League players tend to be more inventive in their attacking play. Also League fans seem to be a lot more passionate about their team than Union fans and this creates a better atmosphere at games as at Union games I get the impression people are just there for a day out not really to support their team.

    Best answer: This questions has been asked here (literally) hundreds of times. The answer depends on what you mean by "tougher"?

    Briefly put, the nature and purpose of the tackles/breakdowns are fundamentally different in the two sports. In rugby the tackler's purpose is to change possession of the ball by poaching it from the tackled player, who must release it once he is off his feet. This makes it imperative for the tackler to remain on his feet. In American football (with the downs-for-distance system) the purpose is to stop the defender from making any forward progress. Because there is little chance of turning the ball over, American football tacklers are more akin to battering rams, using their own momentum to stop the runner without worrying about their body position afterwords.

    The laws are also different. In rugby you cannot lead with your head (not that you would want to) or shoulder charge the ball carrier. The defender must also make some attempt to wrap their arms around the runner. No such rules apply in American football, where the helmets are used as much as weapons as they are for head protection. Not that much protection either, given the incidence of early-onset dementia among ex-NFL players.

    There is also the danger of being blindsided in American football – quarterbacks and receivers can be so focused on the play down (or up) field that they don’t see or hear the tackler approaching them from behind. Because the offside law in rugby requires the ball carrier to be the lead man on his side, blindside hits are very rare.

    So yes, individual hits do come harder in the NFL, and career-ending (not to mention life-threatening) injuries are more common.

    But on the other hand, a rugby squad will make (literally again) over one hundred tackles during a match, as opposed to the 20 to 30 that a football squad will make. Rugby players don't get a breather after every tackle and (almost) all substitutions are permanent. That means that of your starting side of 22 players, at least 8 must be on the pitch for the entire 80 minute match. Your biggest, slowest prop on a rugby squad is still going to have to cover five or six miles on the pitch during a match, while some football linemen will cover more distance running to and from the bench than they will while the ball is actually live. There is a reason why professional rugby players max out at about 280 lbs – it is impossible for a man larger than that to be “fit” enough to play rugby.

    So, if by tougher, you mean who can deal with fatigue and the pain which comes from the lactic acid building up in your thighs over 80 minutes of pretty much continuous play, with no chance of a rest on the bench and while dealing out and taking what are still some pretty hard knocks, then it is the rugby player who "wins" this little competition.

  • What's the difference between rugby union and rugby sevens?

    Best answer: Sevens is a game where (obviously enough) you play with only seven players aside instead of the standard 15. Scrum and lineout numbers are reduced accordingly.

    Best answer: Sevens is a game where (obviously enough) you play with only seven players aside instead of the standard 15. Scrum and lineout numbers are reduced accordingly. It is a much faster game than standard Union if only because there are fewer players to make tackles and therefore fewer breakdowns/phases. The ball also tends to change hands less often. A standard game consists of two seven minute halfs, which is about as long as anybody can go at that pace without somebody's heart exploding.

    Aside from the changes in the number of players and time, there are only two changes from standard 15s. The first is that all kicks at goal, including penalties and conversions, must be drop kicks. You are not allowed to bring a tee onto the field. The other change is that after a team scores, it is the scoring team which restarts with the dropkick at midfield, rather than (as is the case with 15) the team which is scored upon.

    Best answer: It is (dangerous) to remove ANY organs out of your body. Organs are put there for a REASON.



    Remove your kidney? And you will now have problems filtering waste products on that side of the body, and your lymphatic system backed up.

    Remove your gallbadder? - And you will have problems digesting fats.

    Remove your liver, and you won't produce bile.

    Remove your thyroid, and now you can't produce hormones anymore!

    Remove your parathyroid, and you can't regulate calcium anymore!






    The solution to all the cutting out of the organs is to change your lifestyle. Get healthy instead! When you get healthy, your organs and glands will eventually function properly.
