Well after a weekend of pretty non descriptive rugby, Six Nations wise,
maybe a weekend away from the International game is not a bad thing.

The first game on Saturday, saw Ireland travel to Edinburgh(Scotland) for
all you non-geographical persons:)) A game that may have promised a lot,
turned out to be a poor enough game, in which Ireland got back to winning
ways, while stopping Scotland's winning streak at home since 2016 in the
Six Nations.  22-13 was the final scoreline in a game that Ireland needed
to win after defeat to England in the 1st round.

Next, we saw Wales beat Italy in Rome, on a scoreline of 26-15.
Again. a poor enough game, with Italy keeping it close and stopping Wales
from getting the bonus point.

Sunday morning, we watched as England dismantled a shockingly poor France
side, with Jonny May having a field day. England look the side to beat, so
far, but their next game v Wales in Cardiff, will definitely test their
mettle. Losing Mako Vunipola from that front row will be a loss and
Wales,as always in Cardiff, will be chomping at the bit to get at them.

The USA Eagles suffered their first loss in the America's Rugby
Championship sice 2016, when falling to an Argentina XV in Rio Negro,
Argentina.
The scoreline of 45-14, will give you an idea of how bad the loss was, but
this was just an awful display from the Eagles and one in which they will
want to forget very quickly. Straight from the start, missed tackles,
indiscipline, poor handling and just plain poor mistakes were cause for a
defeat that Coach Gold was not nor should he be, happy about.
They have a bye-week this weekend, then it's back at it on Feb 23 v Brazil.

On to the local game, and RUNY had a second bye week and so remain
unbeaten still.:)
Also unbeaten is this weekends opponents, New Orleans, where the team
travel to, for Saturday's matchup.
This should be a cracker and don't forget our Watch Party here at Pig n
Whistle 36th St.
Fun Giveaways, Drink Specials, Complimentary snacks at halftime, and also
Magners Cider will be here to spend some money on all you RUNY Fans!!
The game kicks off at 3pm, so get here early and join in the fun!!

Other results from the past weekend, Toronto got their first ever win in
MLR, when a late try by captain, Dan Moor sealed the points in a 23-19 win
over Austin.
Also, a very late try, got the win for San Diego over a Houston team who
had led all the way until the 78th minute.

AUTUMN INTERNATIONALS

November 14th 2018

Hey All,

Happy Wednesday and hopefully you are all gearing up for what should be another fantastic weekend of rugby.

After the weekend gone by, which included important wins for Italy(over a 2nd Tier team in Georgia, vying for their 6 NAtions Spot), Wales over Australia for the first time in a decade and a last minute win for South Africa over France, to continue their resurgence with under a year to go to World Cup 2019 in Japan, we now look forward to the 2 Top Teams in the World clashing in Dublin in what should be a titanic battle.

Tickets are like gold dust, so why not get down here to The Pig n Whistle on 36th early and grab a seat, a few beers and lunch and enjoy what should be a great atmosphere!!

England start the days coverage off at 10am v Japan, and after the closest of defeats to New Zealand, will want to get back on track again. Scotland take on South Africa at 12.20pm  and we should get that entire game in before switching over to the Big One, Ireland v All Blacks. We will then show France v Argentina on Tape Delay after that game.

So, the lineup is:

10am  England v Japan
12.20pm  Scotland v South Africa
2pm  Ireland v New Zealand
4pm France v Argentina (Tape Delay)


Also NO COVER CHARGE for England game this weekend, how kind of Premium Sports!!

Look forward to seeing those of you not lucky enough to be travelling to any of the games and make sure you share this with ALL your rugby mates!!!

Cheers!!!

The Heineken Cup is back... almost

The EPCR have announced Dutch beer company Heineken as title partner of the Champions Cup from next season.

The tournament - won by Leinster for a fourth time this season - will now be known as the Heineken Champions Cup.

The premier rugby tournament in Europe was known as the Heineken Cup from 1995 until 2014, when the ERC was replaced by the EPCR as French and English clubs flexed their muscles and sought the restructuring of a tournament won by Irish provinces five times in seven seasons, between 2005 and 2012.
