three thugs looking for trouble, well they found it and I hope they are soon found.

Only one had the knife but when you hang around with someone that carries a knife and stabs people in the back,, you pay the consequences.

RIP Takamine.

Posted in: Rich Japanese rugby clubs a threat to Australia, warns Wallabies coach See in context

 It is a foolish ploy as it leaves the local players out of the opportunity to grow and develop within the system which weakens the national team in the long term.

Japan used Kiwi coaches and Kiwi born players and is now a tier one nation having beaten SA, IRE and SCOT in the last 6 years. Foolish? yeah right!

Not clubs. Corporations.

Those votes for Beaumont are paying off very well.

Japan got tier one status and Frank Bainimarama and his brother in law Francis Kean officials get kickbacks I mean financial support for their teams.

the stink of graft is worse than a scrum after 80 minutes of play.

Fukushima and the surrounding Tohoku region were chosen as the starting point to showcase their recovery 

meanwhile Mr Suga is applying to dump 1.24 million tons of radioactive water into the Olympic Surfing coastline. Great recovery guys.

Vaccinations are being rolled out quickly in the U.S. (thank you President Trump)

All the drug companies have stated that Trump did nothing to speed up development of the vaccine. The Trump cult still has a few death spasms left I see. Swallowing lies like 2yr olds.

The cats aren't pets, they are pests.

Culling them is the most humane thing to do with them.

Same for wild dogs.

If it's not a pet, it's wrecking the eco-system, as is this man.

Surprise surprise, a man who is paid to promote the Olympics promoted the Olympics. Why is this even news?

Mr England would have better spent his energies telling his own government to get his own country's Covid measures sorted first. How are they going to hold trials and training camps? Are they basing selections on 2019 performances?

what a shambles.

Bring on Paris 2024 and have Tokyo2028. 2020 is munted.

Posted in: Japan's Top League rugby on hold over coronavirus outbreak See in context

Inept management across the board. Almost every other country with professional sports has established bubbles and PLAYED matches. In tre Japanese lets suck wind through our teeth and wait fashion Osamu Ota and company have knocked this ball on again.

Amy potential momentum left from RWC2019 has well and truly been kicked out on the full and the ball has been lost in a sea of leaderless blazer wearers.

How will Kieran Read clash with Beaden Barrett? They play different roles and it's extremely unlikely that they will even get near each other. Sometimes the hype merchants need to chill out.

Bugger I was hoping for some local rugby.

Super Rugby Australia please don't screw it up. If Covid breaks out again go into bubbles and stay there.

It's deep fried frozen chicken that is then left under a heat bulb for a long time. It's cheap and fast but good?

Don't leave the NRL out of the article please. Olsen Filipaina the first Pacific Island star got called all kinds of stuff, by his team mates and coaches!

He would go home from trainings crying but his mum wouldn't let him quit.

He laid the table for a league that is over 40% Polynesian now. As late as last year NRL commentators were hamming up Polynesian players names on live broadcasts.

chances he had a heart attack.

chances are the police did more than just handcuff him.

chances are nothing much will change vis-à-vis suspects being pinned down and held till they stop resisting.

chances are this was a medical issue and a well trained EMT could have helped prevent this mans death.

RIP and condolences.

if anyone can put Australian rugby back on track it is him and if he can not do it, better close the door on Australian pro rugby because nobody will be able to do better

So why didn't he do it for Super Rugby?

Talk about falling upwards, only in Australian Rugby.

Marinos probably going to put all his eggs in the Japanese basket.
