The ‘clearly unfair’ tie-break rule in new rugby variant has left fans absolutely baffled https://buff.ly/334oxcs

3:03 PM – Oct 30, 201England has won the inaugural Rugby X tournament. Only four teams participated in the first event, USA, England, France and Ireland.

The championship match finished level and so it was settled by a unique ‘one-on-one’ format. This format included a defender on the 5m line and one attacker 30m from goal with a ball. The attacker had 10 seconds to score, with the first team to three winning.

A weird ending to an exciting tournament format that highlighted quick scoring and big collisions.

The 11th WPL Championships saw Glendale outlast Life West 39-31. Life West is new to the league and swept the competition on their way to the final but Glendale had the final say.

The league may have some creative thinking to do as the East conference was very slim on wins. The sole wins on the weekend went to New York and Twin Cities on day 2.

One can hope women are considered for the other NINE awards but history shows us otherwise. In 2017 Joy Neville was awarded ‘World Rugby Referee Award’ and Rachael Burford received the ‘IRPA Special Merit Award’ alongside Richie McCaw. These appear to be rare exceptions.
