Williams had been tipped for great things, but struggled to command a regular place at his home region before opting for pastures new. Others too, whether because of injury or circumstance, haven’t fully realised the potential they showed as an emerging talent on the regional scene.
Dazzling feet, searing pace and an ability to kick off two feet, he made an instant impact in an Anglo-Welsh Cup game against Leicester and looked set to be the next international back to trip off the production line down west after playing a starring role for Wales Under s as they reached the final of the Junior World Championships in France. Williams toured South Africa with Wales in , but started to fall out of favour with his home region with head coach Wayne Pivac raising concerns about his defensive game.
He joined Bristol at the start of last season and delivered a reminder of his talents last weekend with a stunning counter-attacking solo score in a hat-trick of tries. Has just turned 24 so time is on his side. Another supremely talented runner, Morgan lit up with the Welsh Premiership with Swansea before graduating into the senior ranks at the Liberty. He played 66 matches for his home region and won his first cap for Wales on tour against the Springboks in after shining at full-back in a trial game at the Liberty.
Returned to Welsh rugby with Cardiff Blues at the start of last season, but the year-old has struggled to re-ignite his international career. There was plenty of promise from Andrews during the autumn series, but he failed to kick on, winning 13 caps over five years spent on the fringes of the national squad. It was Comic Book stuff for the boy from the Neath Valley, who had a year earlier been working at the local coal mine in Onllwyn.

Following the introduction of a new format for interstate rugby league, the State of Origin series in , the decade of the s brought about expansion of the NSWRL premiership , with the introduction of commercial sponsorship, the Winfield Cup , and the addition of non-Sydney-based teams, Canberra and Illawarra in Following the season, Sydney foundation club Newtown Jets were ultimately forced to withdraw from the competition because of financial difficulties.
Ultimately this competition failed, but in its demise the National Rugby League was born, incorporating the traditional Sydney clubs, successfully coercing the Sydney market to follow the newly created national competition. The prospect of a truly national rugby league competition in addition to the introduction of pay television in Australia attracted the attention of global media organisation, News Corporation , and it followed that professional rugby league was shaken to its very foundations in the mid s with the advent of the Super League war.
Initially a conflict over broadcasting rights, it became a dispute as to who controlled the sport and which traditional clubs would survive into the new national era, as News Limited formed their own Super League and admitted some former ARL clubs, poaching players from the original ARL league with high salaries. With twenty-two teams of highly varying quality playing in two competitions that year, crowd attendances and corporate sponsorships were spread very thinly,  and many teams found themselves in financial difficulty.

The Internet is a wonderful thing. With just a few clicks of the mouse, from home, you can now access all sorts of information. While still more useful for pop culture types of information rather than information in detail – you must still rely on a library for that – the technology has revolutionized the way we gain facts and knowledge. The Internet Movie Database is a resource I find myself using all the time, and one uneventful afternoon, while wondering what else I could add to this web site, it occurred to me that I didn’t know what, if any, movies on the subject of rugby were available.
Sure, the silver screen is lousy with films about basketball, baseball and football, but where are the rugby films? You can go to the IMDB entry by clicking on the movie title. Larry Gelwix, whom I once interviewed , is portrayed in this. I believe this is the first movie by Americans about American rugby. Oh, it had a lot of the usual sports film tropes, but at least this time it was about rugby, which was novel.

Gordon Langkilde, who plays for Samoa and faces up to four years in prison if convicted, pleaded not guilty to four charges but was told by a judge he had to surrender his passport. Judge Murphy ordered Langkilde to stay at least yards away from Williams, Roach and Morgan, who are all believed to be back in Wales. Mr Bentley and Poulos both declined to comment outside the courtroom. Langkilde is next scheduled to appear in court on Monday for a pre-hearing conference although it could be several weeks, if not months, before the case reaches a trial.
Wales had won the game against Samoa on Saturday thanks to a golden point try scored by Ospreys player Williams, but as the two teams departed the field and went into the tunnel, things are alleged to have turned sour.
Rugby union, commonly known in most of the world as rugby, is a contact team sport which originated in England in the first half of the 19th century. One of the two codes of rugby football, it is based on running with the ball in its most common form, a game is between two teams of 15 players using an oval-shaped ball on a rectangular field with H-shaped goalposts on each try line.
Please, go there for more updated sports journalism tips, suggestions and commentary. Most sportswriters know very little about this exciting sport that has the grace of soccer, the power of football, and the speed of track. These rugby titles are not fully sanctioned NCAA championships, so do not write them as if they are. These games are played by club players. The Associated Press and other polls rely upon at least a few dozen reporters who regularly cover the beats to make such assessments.
So make sure you address these points properly in your stories. Eastern Illinois is the only Division I program. A sport requires 40 members to earn NCAA championship status. These angles are worn and overdone. Plus, there is not any more blood, violence or injury in rugby than in sports such as football, soccer and basketball. You can check out the statistics for yourself.
That might even be a good story to pursue. Despite the misconceptions, reporters have much to cover in rugby.
