Team of the Week

There was precious little activity for Americas players over the weekend with a player strike knocking out two Top 14 fixtures and only a handful of matches elsewhere across the top divisions in Europe. Thankfully once again the Jaguares have stepped up in times of need with a big win ...

Team of the Week

With the Americas Rugby Championship done for another year it’s back to domestic rugby we look for this week’s selection. The Aviva Premiership and Guinness Pro 12 had the week off but we had two divisions of French club rugby, the British & Irish Cup, the Anglo-Welsh Cup, and of ...

It’s over! This weekend we will be distracted by the Vancouver 7s but then the sadness will creep in that it will be another 11 months until the Americas Rugby Championship returns. Of course there’s still plenty to process and the debrief has only just begun, and we still have ...

ARC Team of the Week – Round 4

This week saw two blowout scores and one upset, and it’s the two big winners who dominate our weekly selection.

Team of the Week

Our last weekend focused on domestic rugby until the end of March was an interesting one. With no Premiership or Pro 12 we were given the two French divisions and the Anglo-Welsh cup to pine over, with no players coming from the Championship. Thankfully there were plenty of decent performances ...

Team of the Week

The final week of pool play in European competition and also a key week in the French Pro D2 provided some options, but it’s the grand finale of the California Cup that has earned several players their spot in our delayed selection. One more weekend of club rugby to keep ...

Team of the Week

Another week of European rugby is on the books and again a week that saw limited success from Americas players. As last week we’ve also been fortunate to have the California Cup in full swing and the Italian Eccellenza to draw from, and thankfully we’ll soon be full-on with the ...
