England Rugby November 2007 - In Review

England Rugby November 2007 - After the Rugby World Cup this month seemed to be quieter but things got into full swing again when the England Sevens jetted off to Dubai for the IRB 2007/8 Sevens Series.  We had Irish eyes smiling on our Ladies, a new Lady Captain and a little bit of Amore! Our Patrick looked at the opening round of the Heineken Cup.  We had statements again and maybe just maybe peace in our time for the game of rugby.  We looked forward to the 2008 Six Nations Fixtures List.  Plus the Baa Baas hit town.

England Rugby - The RFU and Premier Rugby Ltd (“PRL”) are pleased to announce they have signed a new Agreement (the “Agreement”) which will govern the professional game in England from 1 July 2008 until 30 June 2016. Will this finally put the Club v Country Row to bed? Let us hope so!

Twenty-four teams from six countries will battle it out over the rest of the season to be crowned Champions of Europe in the Heineken Cup and there are sure to be plenty of twists and turns along the way. In fact you could argue that the drama started months ago when English and French clubs threatened to boycott the competition, thankfully, common sense prevailed and this year’s competition promises to be even bigger and better than before!

 Baa Baas v RWC Champions South Africa - Gartmore Challenge Match 1st December

Wow the Baa Baas turned on the style and beat the NEW Rugby World Cup Champions - to some this was a meaningless game but to many and the many who turned up at Twickenham on a cold December day.   It meant the essence of what rugby is about, not money but the game itself!

Well done the Baa Baas and farewell Jason Robinson.
