Argentina joined the Rugby Champs in 2012. *Edit* I remember that cause they beat the Wallabies last year

In 2016 Japan and Argentina are joining Super Rugby.

I am so excited for this.

As a Force supporter who's terrible at following rugby news, this OP was the first I heard that Cummins isn't playing. I mean I had read the squad list but I just missed that he wasn't there. He didn't do much this season but still, what a shame.

Yeah. I convinced myself a membership was justified this season because there were glimmers of something improving last year but... yeah. I've left Perth now though so I don't have to make the call about renewing for next season.

I've been a member every season since they formed.

Pretty sure at this point me renewing my membership is just stockholm syndrome.

My doctor is the greatest Welsh captain of all time, and I never realised they were the same person, until 70 minutes through watching a documentary about his life. He looks exactly the loving same now, as when he played rugby.

I have a prescription for really strong painkiller that's he's written for me, and I'm torn between exchanging it for vital medicine, or keeping his autograph, and living my life in constant pain!

:wales:

I have no idea who your doctor is but I do know my favourite Welsh captain is Ieuan Evans who (along with Adrian Davies) stayed at my family home during the Welsh Tour of Australia in 1991. This was back when touring rugby teams were billeted with volunteers from local clubs.

Surely nobody who has even a single great-great grandparent from any other country supports England anyway? Nothing like a game of rugby for bringing out the dormant Welsh genes...

Exactly only the purest of the pure English support England, if you had any other option you'd have to take it.

Because everyone hates England. Every other country might have rivals, or traditional foes, or grudge matches, but there isn't a single rugby playing country that doesn't feel the secret joyful glee of pounding England into the dirt.

If you give away a penalty in the 22 refs won't call advantage over unless there is a ruck a foot away from the try line regardless of time taken.

Yeah pretty much, because of the huge amount of advantage you'd get from kicking to a 5m lineout.
