The 2015 Super Rugby kicked off early this morning with three games and the remainder being played tonight and tomorrow morning. Because of the Rugby World Cup being hosted in England/Wales/Scotland in September, the Super Rugby Final will be in July and The Rugby Championship will only be contested over three rounds. Any thoughts on this upcoming season? Will Waratahs repeat as champions (they kickoff v Force on Sunday)? What a dominant win by the Brumbies this morning over the Red 47-3. The Reds are still going to be struggling throughout the season like they did in 2014. But the Brumbies set out an early marker for the remainder of the clubs to meet or beat.
The all-purpose thread for rugby union and rugby league, both at club and international levels. RWC Qualifying With the Repechage Play-off being decided with Uruguay defeating Russia in the two-legged tie to qualifying for next year's IRB Rugby World Cup in England, the complete field is set. Bledisloe Cup Anyone watch the third tie of the Bledisloe Cup this past weekend? The Wallabies had control of the All-Blacks for a good portion of the match but just couldn't keep the constant pressure of the Kiwis at bay. The Australians came out with alot of passion and fire in this tie, something that wasn't shown in this season's Rugby Championship (except for their 12-12 draw with the All-Blacks in the opening match of the competition, breaking NZLs 18 match unbeaten run). Iyt was a great match to watch from start to end. I am hoping this is the turn around for the Wallabies now.

Anyone going to the USA-NZL match in Chicago?
So there isn't a thread on here about Super Rugby, the premier rugby union club competition in the southern hemisphere. The best rugby players in the world play in this league, with clubs based in Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. It was announced prior to the start of this Super Rugby season that in 2016 there will be an additional South African club and the inaugural Argentinian club in the competition. So this the thread for discussion of this amazing league... Any thoughts on how the first rounds have been played out? Any predictions on who will be crowned at in August? Will the Chiefs repeat?
