    Just seen the last 20 minutes of the Jaguares v Chiefs Super Rugby quarter-final which consisted of an absolutely immense defensive effort from the home side to protect a 21-16 lead right to the end.

    They're now in to their first semi-final of the competition after four years participation and they'll host it it too. Their form and the atmosphere in Beunos Aires will make them a formidable opponent to whoever of the Brumbies or Sharks travel there.

      Yep, the five players named were all black. The four from England and Faletau.

      Bundee Aki also liked it but has since said he liked it without reading the content and has lots of gay friends etc. I suppose it's better than nothing.

      Alfie was excellent on Channel Four, particularly about Folau. Just very open and honest.

      As expected the RFU have swept it under the carpet pretty much.

      Folau now taken to GoFundMe asking for AUS$3m to take his case to the Fair Work Commission.

      He hasn't actually been sacked from his job, has he, just told he won't be picked for representative sport for his country, and, as a result his fee-paying contract terminated?

        Given he was the highest paid player in the world, I don't quite see how he needs 3mil, especially considering that the ARU would pay cost if he won. Has he never heard of no win no fee?

          I think it's just that he's a cunt.

          The video is as much about trying to make his (patently absurd) claim about "freedom to practise religion" as it is about raising money.

            Drew Mitchell and others have been calling him out as well, he's a multi millionaire who is crowd funding for extra publicity not because of need or belief.

              I'm surprised it took so long.

                France retained their RWC U20 title in Argentina, they beat Australia by a point in the final. Again they've got talent coming through.
                Wales beat NZ but lost to England to finish sixth.

                  They are into the final now after hammering the Brumbies.

                    They lost the final to the soon to be renamed Crusaders.

                    There's a list of players leaving Super Rugby at the end of the season or after the RWC, a huge number with most heading to Japan.

                      Round one of the rugby championship and South Africa hammer Australia while New Zealand hold on to beat Argentina in Buenos Aires. Argentina also stopped the All Blacks scoring in the second half, it must have been years since that's happened as generally teams can lead NZ but get blown away late on.

                        Lots of references on twitter to a Welsh club leaking plans for an Anglo-Welsh League in coming seasons but can't seem to find the source of it.
