Rugby rules

Rugby World - - THE FANS’ VIEW -

Stephen Jones misses the point com­pletely (“Is rugby be­com­ing foot­ball?”Juneis­sue).

He may have been able to see ev­ery­thing from his seat in the sta­dium, but what did he see… mind-numb­ingly bor­ing play, point­less passing be­tween prima don­nas, back passes to nowhere, 89 min­utes of ab­so­lutely for­get­table run­ning and per­haps one minute of some form of action. And bad sports­man­ship, div­ing and shirt-pulling.

I’d rather watch a scrum be­ing re­set than highly-paid id­iots bat­ting a ball back­wards and side­ways. Colin Slater, via email
