                                                                            At the risk of sounding like every other cliché-wrapped bundle of festive round-up codswallop: this year has been quite the rollercoaster. Unprecedented successes have been followed by mind-numbingly predictable failures. Normal orders have been restored, usurped and downright destroyed. Reputations have been fortified ..

It is a sign of changing times that the early season international breaks are, to most of us, something of an inconvenience. The lustre of the Premier League is now such that it far eclipses its international counterpart for excitement, drama and quality, and any interruption to its seemingly endless stream of high-class theatre is treated irksome to those who plan their weekends around it. Now it’s all over and done with till March, we can get back to the opulent footballing indulgences of West Brom v Burnley on a Monday night. Thank god. This most recent round of fixtures, howev..

Still, with this in mind, it seems counter-intuitive to look ahead at this winter’s tour with glum pessimism, regardless of whether this may or may not be ‘the English way of doing things’. However, it really is difficult to feel anything but. The overriding view of our chances this winter is, a..
                                  The international rugby calendar is a matter of serious contention. Since the advent of the World Cup, the expansion of the Five and Tri-nations, and the introduction of annual, trans-global tours to and from the southern hemisphere, the fixture list has become a tad crowded, to say the least. In the past thirteen months, the home nations have played World Cup warm up fixtures, the World Cup itself – with varying degrees of length and intensity – the Six N..
