    20/20 Rugby Union

    For ****s who think League was created by someone who was "not gay enough" for Union.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    I was thinking more of a bashfest as in Fuller's 20/20 Rugby League idea despite the fact that seven's used to be in RL also.

    Get rid of this bloody 3 points for field/drop goals, one point is sufficient. It tells you a lot that if a team is popping drop goal shots a fair bit in the game, then it tells you a lot about their ability to score tries.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    You are the biggest waste of space this forum has seen. Atleast we could laugh at Rodgie and bond21, but you're so incredibly dire that it actually isn't funny.

    Completely inappropriate. Watch what you say.

    How can they play 20/20 union? Do they play 20 mins per half? Or do they have 20 pppl, cuz that would be just so over crowded.

    Wycliff Palu played a level below reserve grade.

    Meanwhile the likes of Sam Harris who played quite a bit of state union, went to league and was in and out of first grade, never cemented his spot at either club he played for.
