ARC Team of the Week – Round 3

The turning point of the Americas Rugby Championship saw the teams break into three distinct groups. As expected the Argentina XV and USA are tied for the lead after convincing wins, while Uruguay is now level with Canada after getting past a tricky Brazilian side. A number of players put ...

ARC Team of the Week – Round 2

The weather took a turn for the better this week, though there was still steam rising from the scrums in Langford. With only one more game in the icy north there should be plenty more running rugby in the next three weeks. Three teams were comfortable winners, but standards across ...

ARC Team of the Week – Round 1

It’s time for our first weekly selection of the best from the Americas Rugby Championship. This particular side took extra time to complete, as the rough conditions on the weekend made it difficult to compare one player from another. After some re-watches we think we’ve just about got it down. ...

On the outskirts of European thoughts is the Italian Eccellenza, an ever-improving standard of rugby that is now bolstered with several ...

Team of the Week

Amidst the off-field excitement we almost forgot that there was some on-field excellence from this past weekend. The European Champions and Challenge Cup had first consideration of course but there were also players in the Pro D2, British & Irish Cup, and California Cup to watch out for. The American ...

Team of the Week

A full plate of European action somehow wasn’t quite enough to fill our team this week, so we’ve reached down into South Africa for a couple selections and even way across to California for one. In general the backs were the standouts with the forwards a little lacking, though the ...
