The 9 Stages of Realising That the Rugby Season is Over

We in the Northern Hemisphere have been treated to a fantastic season of rugby that culminated in the June internationals. Whilst there’s still plenty of rugby to come in the form of the Super XV, Rugby Championship and ‘the other code’, things just aren’t the same.

Here is the 9 stage process of grieving the end of the season for us rugby fans in the Northern Hemisphere;

1. Denial
