I created a website that is one big rugby tv guide, and it's gone live this week!

It shows all the games on TV in the UK and Ireland, with more countries to be added soon.

All the games are localised into your current timezone so it should be much easier for those from all across the world who are fed with up with everything being so UK-centric!

I'd love for this site to play a little part in growing the game around the world, so can't wait to get US providers on, and put some light on MLR, SLAR etc.

Check it out at www.rugbykickoff.com and please share with anyone you think might be interested!

Edit: thanks for the great response and helpful feedback! I've already started working on a dark mode. If you want to support the site you can here, will help with hosting costs! https://www.buymeacoffee.com/roryjbd

What is most physically intimidating team in rugby?

I’m an American who has been attempting to get into rugby for several years but have always failed because I don’t have a team to focus my attention on.

Because I have a simple mind (much like a child), across all sports I typically like the team with the largest and most physically powerful or aggressive players. I enjoy violent sports and I enjoy the teams that do violence the best. Big hits, bump offs are what I live for.

This team doesn’t have to be particularly good. I would prefer to limit the pool of potential teams to mostly English-speaking nations just so it’s easier to consume the sport. I’ve watched matches in both Super Rugby and the English Premiership so that’s probably what I’m most familiar with, but cool with suggestions for the national teams as well.

I apologize if this is not the place to be asking this question or if this is a request you folks receive too often.

The Edinburgh vs Glasgow match yesterday was without a doubt the worst game of rugby I have ever seen.

It was a joke of a game. The skills and execution on display was so poor, the entertainment value was even worse and the refereeing was terrible.

I just watched the first half back and noted every notable mistake / time periods without play and it is truly mind boggling how bad it really was. 2nd half was not any better.

1:30 – Price with a dud chip which goes straight to Watson

1:40 – Graham runs into touch

2:45 – Pyrgos kicks ball dead from 40m out

4:40 – Bennett not rolling away, without pressure.

6:15 – Seuli knock on

7:09 - 1st scrum failed to bind – reset - 2nd scrum set @ 7:40 collapsed – reset - 3rd scrum failed to bind @ 8:30 - freekick to Edinburgh who opt for a scrum - 4th scrum set @ 9:10 - penalty to Edinburgh - Kinghorn kicks to touch @ 9:42 - misses touch and then Tagive knocks it on. 10:37 - 1st scrum fails to bind – reset - 2nd scrum sets @ 10:50 (after 30 second timeout).

11:08 – penalty to Edinburgh (M. Fagerson not releasing tackler) 11:27 – advantage ended prematurely by ref when Edinburgh still in possession on Glasgow’s try-line) – Edinburgh opts for scrum. Scrum sets @ 12:28, free kick to Glasgow, Thompson kicks to touch at 12:56. Lineout thrown in at 13:24.

13:29 – penalty against Glasgow for offside - lineout thrown in at 14:33 – stolen by Glasgow – box kicked

14:58 – high tackle by Seuli on Graham – advantage not played for no reason. Lineout thrown in @ 15:47.

15:47 – 17:33 - several unsuccessful pick and goes on Glasgow’s line.

17:33 – Gray penalised – offside

17:45. Pyrgos throws away advantage with shit intercept pass. Intentional?

18:47 – 1st scrum not binded – reset - 2nd scrum set @ 19:30 - Penalty Edinburgh @19:44 followed by 30 second time-off. Edinburgh opt for a 3rd scrum which is set @ 20:02. Ball finally played and followed by 6 one out runs from slow ball, no metres made and Pyrgos knocks on @ 20:47.

Commentator: β€˜No score but plenty of action so far’

21:55 – 1st scrum set and ball in play! Kicked out poorly after 1 phase.

22:41 – Edinburgh’s line out thrown in @ 38m out, several phases later after a gain of 0m, JVDV kicks for the corner but the ball goes dead (65 second timeout follows). Glasgow’s 1st scrum set @ 24:32, kicked out on the full by Huw Jones @ 24:43.

25:02 – Edinburgh lineout followed by poor kick-pong. Price then box kicks and Edinburgh have gone from 5m in Glasgow’s half to 15m deep in their own.

26:40 – line-break by H. Jones

27:03 – knock on by Grigg.

27: 15 – Ritchie

Anyone feel uncomfortable with how they view rugby after the dementia news?

I guess I had just been turning a blind eye to it before. I'd always look down on boxing, saying that its a sport where participants intentionally cause brain damage to each other. You didn't need the revelations about CTE for that sport to know its not safe. Just look at any ex pros, half of them can barely speak in their 60s.

I told myself that rugby didn't have the same problem and was ok because the aim of rugby was to score tries, not hurt your opponent. But if players are suffering from dementia in their 40s, does it really matter if the aim is to hurt your opponent or not?

I'd become a bit more uneasy with the sport, looking at the state player's bodies were in during retirement. Hartley's revelations were concerning, he seems to be wrecked physically, in his mid 30s. But then I said that he's probably earned close to Β£2 million from rugby with his caps, club salary and endorsements. Some people would make that trade off for the money.

But I don't think anyone would make the trade off for dementia, let alone in their 40s. How many players are suffering from this? who knows, rugby players aren't exactly outgoing with their health. I'd read about Shontayne Hape, thinking he was playing through his concussions and that what was caused the damage. I'd said hes unfortunate, most players don't get knocked out more than once in their careers, some never.

But its beginning to look like all the small knocks, not just the ones that make the player unconscious do damage as well. Things are improving, players take time out for concussions, return to play and all that, but they don't prevent all the sub concussive blows from occurring.

How do I square it with myself that boxing is barbaric and unethical, but rugby is fine? Maybe it never was fine and I just enjoyed the sport and grew up with it.

Its easy to say "well, they know what they are getting into' Well did any of them know about the cognitive effects? I dont think they did because we are only learning about them now. Plus, these guys start the sport as children. Its not like you can ask an 8 year old "based on the probability of you having long term side effects of this activity, would you like to undertake it, possibly to a high level?".

Instead the kids get sucked in, you watch your heroes and want to be just like them. Then there's money, status, its not easy to walk away from, especially when you've sacrificed an education for the sport. This is exactly what has happened with boxing, where the
