31.4 finds the edge this time! Precision engineering from Archer, he recalibrates by a couple of millimetres and rips out Warner to get the crowd on their feet! Touching 90mph, straightening off the pitch as Warner felt for it on off stump – not much he could do to play a ball like that, bar […]

Rugby should look at 1987 World Cup and take another leap into unknown

That requires the focused, dynamic leadership that runs contrary to the way the game is set up. The past few months have given unions the chance to reflect as they watch their bank […]
