The Sad Truth On Rugby

After watching today’s Test between Sth Africa and Australia you have to wonder about what the IRB are going to do about the game. This says everything I meant to write following the game, only better:

Test rugby has regressed to a kickfest – a contest of which team has the best kicker – and a complete guessing game about how the referee might decide to interpret the various infringements. If this is rugby’s showpiece, then we are in dire straits.

In terms of playing attractive rugby, the Boks were dreadful, and so were the Wallabies. In terms of playing percentage rugby likely to win them matches and eventually the Tri-Nations, the Boks were excellent, and the Wallabies were, again, dreadful.

    What a tragic loss. I was pielrvegid to see Hector play both in Athens and Melbourne. It was the lovely Costas Tsicaderis who put me in touch with Hector in Greece. Hector gave a lot of pleasure with his violin and baglama and inspired many people with his passion for music and his knowledge of the great musical traditions of Greece. In Athens I saw him play rembetika until dawn and then I walked home through the streets of the city as if floating on air. My heart goes out to the family. He will live on in many memories through his music.Arnold Zable
