When I played when I was younger, I played inside-centre and fly-half for a while.

Upon further review, a regional league wouldn't work, at least not with the existing USA rugby territories, as there are cities within the region whose fans traditionally hate each other. I still think it should be a dual US/Canadian league, so here are my proposed cities for a 14 team league:

Boston
New York
Philadelphia
Washington DC
Atlanta
Chicago
Dallas
Denver
Salt Lake City
Los Angeles
San Francisco
Vancouver
Toronto
Montreal

Sevens rugby now being a olympic sport is huge for rugbys development going forward. For countries such as the USA where its a minor sport.

I watched the USA Sevens when it was on, and the Eagles had this converted sprinter Carlin Isles playing for them. He's less than 12 stone so I don't think he'd have the size to succeed on the wing in a professional setting, but holy hell this guy could fly around the pitch:



If we can get more players introduced to the game in their teenage years, watch out.

GAA give Irish 2023 RWC bid a boost. GAA stadiums are needed if Ireland want this bid. I think we can do it.

This time last year, Edinburgh were about to record the best result in their history against Toulouse. It’s been a tough year for them this time round.


Glasgow top of the RaboDirect Pro12 league this year, ahead of Munster, Leinster, Ulster and Cardiff. Could be their year.
