TV Times – Review of Aviva Premiership Round 15

Starting on Friday morning you could watch a feast of rugby from the Super 15, Top 14, Premiership, Internationals and women’s rugby internationals. This continued until late on Sunday and with some judicious recording you were able to avoid other attractive distractions (like re-roofing the shed) and stay perched on the sofa for the whole weekend.

The Premiership – A Tough (t)ask

Premiership Team of the Half-Season

As we’ve reached the half-way stage of the Premiership season, intermingled with four grueling, enthralling, blockbusting rounds of the Heineken and Amlin Challenge Cups, I thought it would be appropriate to look back on the 11 rounds of the Premiership, and acknowledge the players who I feel have been the most outstanding up to Christmas: 15): Chris Pennell Runner up: …
