I'm so hyped this year, the pre-season has just started, a lot of great management moves have been made, the U-20s are looking sharp. I can't believe it's still over a month until i'm back at Mt Sma.....fuck it, wrong sport.

I thought about making it like two weeks ago but was too afraid due to it being not the most popular sport on here. But with Clipsal only days away, consider it started!

Go make a thread and talk to yourself about your pansies who can't hack real tackles or set real scrums.

You could learn how to ruck and maul rather than roll away like a wimp.

Is that what that godawful mess after every tackle is?

Next you'll tell me it's a good thing it takes three minutes to set a scrum and a real game only has the ball in play for 20 of 80 minutes

Wow, sometimes you do hyperbole better than I do in One threads.

That's because you watch games involving the Wallabies and Matt Dunning can barely fucking stay on his feet at the best of times.

I am, for the record, one of the loudest critics of how slow scrums have become in the last few years, and some rule changes are currently being trialled to speed it up. If you ask me, the referees are to blame - just let the teams take the tap, don't set the damn thing again if it's being dragged down. That will stop a lot of the bullshit that goes on.

And to be perfectly honest, I find union faster than league. Dear God, league is boring.

You're perfectly capable of hyperbole outside of One threads too!

League just strikes me as the same thing over and over again for eighty minutes. That's not fast; that's boring. It's a sport much better watched in highlights packages.

Rugby reminds me of the same thing but slower and more of a mess

Perhaps we need to end this because everybody (especially the AFL fans) aren't getting anything out of this

Perhaps we should defer to the expert

It's rugby league: Habana

Rugby World Cup star Bryan Habana has criticised the new rules being trialled in the Super 14 competition, saying they are turning the game into rugby league.

Having played three games under the new format, the South African and Bulls winger is not a fan and hopes the so-called Experimental Law Variations (ELVs) remain experimental.

"It's got a lot more of a rugby league feel on it," Habana told reporters at the Laureus World Sports Awards, where the World Cup-winning Springboks were nominated for Team of the Year.

"There's no stop-start, the essence of what rugby is, anymore."

Rule-makers believe the ELVs will speed up the game and increase the amount of time the ball stays in play by cutting the long periods in which the ball is at the bottom of a ruck, secured in a maul or out of action while scrums are set and reset.

The rules provide for free kicks instead of penalties for many infringements around the tackled area, meaning play is often re-started immediately by the non-offending team taking a tap kick and returning the ball to play.

"If guys wanted to play rugby league, they'd go out and play rugby league," Habana said.

"The essence of what rugby is about is something that I don't think any player or any supporter wants to see lost.

"There's something special about rugby ... your forwards pride themselves on the scrum and the line-out and your backs pride themselves on that contest against the opposition.

"The backs are running against the forwards now and the forwards are running against the backs, so it's a little bit of a mix-up at the moment."

Habana also said changing between the new and old rules put added pressure on players from countries like Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

"I don't really understand because the southern hemisphere teams are playing with it in the Super 14, then come the June Tests, we revert back to the old laws, then come the Tri-Nations, we revert back to the new laws again," he said.

"As players, we just want to go out there and play this wonderful game we call rugby and hopefully they won't change what the essence of rugby is all about."

I think I saw Cuz again today, this time at Rundle Mall.

Make no mistake, he's trying to get a gig in SA.


Unless I'm tripping serious balls.
