I’ll have to earn my place, says Matt Symons

Wasps lock Matt Symons is relieved to have been given a second Premiership chance after the nightmare of relegation at London Irish. Combative second rower Symons arrived at the Exiles from Super Rugby last summer with genuine aspirations of fighting for an England spot. His dream turned to dust, though, as a season of intense […]

Peter Jackson: Yes-No interlude for Shaun Edwards

Shaun Edwards could have been forgiven for not knowing whether he was coming or going in recent weeks, an observation which had nothing to do with the flood of tries shipped by Wales over their last five matches. The Welsh Rugby Union had given their defence coach permission to broaden his horizons by doing some […]

Jeff Probyn column: Global season would be no aid to player welfare

Am I the only one who doesn’t understand the continual call for a global season and how moving a couple of competitions will reduce the workload on players? This week we had WRU chairman and Welsh legend Gareth Davies suggesting the whole global game is up for possible change so as to relieve pressure on […]

Shane Williams column: Senseless Gatland’s Law should be binned

I wonder how many Rugby Paper readers can give me a definitive explanation of ‘Gatland’s Law’. I know I certainly can’t.

Tom Youngs in pledge to bring back glory days at Leicester

New Leicester captain Tom Youngs reckons the pain of three successive Premiership semi-final defeats will drive his side towards next season’s title. Tigers have reached the play-offs in each of the last 12 years, but hooker Youngs says failure to translate that into silverware since 2013 is beginning to grate as he looks to return […]

Brendan Gallagher: Built on sand, but Fiji’s Olympics bid will be rock solid

When it comes to stand-out Olympic performances, David Hemery’s 400m hurdles gold for Great Britain in 1968 is right up there and Ben Ryan’s Fiji squad have taken a leaf out of the great man’s book as the Pacific Islanders prepare for the inaugural Olympic Sevens in Rio next month. Hemery’s stunning world record run […]

Nick Cain column: England’s U20 stars would thrive at Rio Olympics

Posted on by in with 0 Comments

Here’s hoping that the GB Sevens side for the Rio Olympics which was announced last week come back from Brazil with a medal. If they do, it will be a huge achievement, because when it comes to organisation, planning, training, match preparation and star quality, the GB squad led by England Sevens captain Tom Mitchell […]

Brendan Gallagher: The All Black tour that left Olympics in chaos

It’s 40 years pretty much to the day that a rugby tour wreaked havoc with the 1976 Montreal Olympics, a financially precarious Olympiad that could frankly have done without the political storm that engulfed it after New Zealand controversially decided to go ahead with their fourth tour of apartheid ridden South Africa. The knock-on effect […]
