The IRB have cited two players after the first weekend of Autumn International Tests.
Rob Simmons of Australia luckily avoided being sent off after a crunching late ‘tip’ tackle on France’s Yannick Nyanga. Simmons caught a break because none of the match officials saw the number of the offending player so he couldn’t be sent off.
On Sunday, Adam Thomson of New Zealand All Blacks was binned for ‘stamping or trampling’ Alasdair Strokosh of Scotland. A ban for Thomson could in theory end his All Blacks career on a downer; he’s widely expected to move to Japan and a ban resulting from this incident would most likely rule him out of the rest of these Autumn tests.
Search4Hurt is an interesting* idea: take one man – Matt Murphy – and send him out to compete in the worlds toughest adventure races… in other words, push him to his limit!
Search4Hurt have teamed up with Skins to provide compression kit that will help Matt train longer, compete better and recover faster.
In the gaps between events, Matt spends his time training with the best trainers, athletes and teams around the world. In this video, he spends some time with the Australian Wallabies… and then he throws up!
* by ‘interesting’, we really mean stupid and entertaining!
Under Armour Charged Cotton Storm Full Zip Hoodies
Let me just lay it out there at the start: I’m a bit of an Under Armour fan… but let me word it a bit differently.

So for these reasons, I like Under Armour stuff. It’s always worked well. Don’t get me wrong though; I’m not a blind following fanboy – it’s got to prove its worth. Read more
