People dont realise how awesome are two things of Rugby Europe's work:

- All matches of all divisions (including sevens) have live streaming. A proper centralized one (for example Sudamerica Rugby is a nightmare to find out where the matches will be available).

- Match sheets online in pdf in the same day (I never see Sudamerica Rugby or Americas Rugby Championship match sheets).

With a player that allows you to rewind or restart a live match, archives instantly and a domain that’s easy to remember (rugbyeurope.tv). They really excel in that area.

Agree. Rugby Europe doesn't shine in the marketing area but in the basic, practical things they are doing all well. Kudos and thanks to them.
It's like they were good craftsmen, but still not good artists

NOT YET = just check 48H deadline

Both unions have published them, haven't they? That's what matters to me and what I'm praising.

I said "RE and unions". Rugby Europe may be late to publish on their website, but they've done an effort to release squads in a prettier way on social media. It's better, it's an improvement even if small.

MY fault: forgot how aptly RE uses twitter for giving squads and recaps

I like the aesthetic look of the World Rugby website and social channels. The aspect most perplexing of their website is the fact that they still offer fixtures and results without distinguishing by sex, age and format. Maybe there's an ideal behind that approach ("every national select has the same value of the others, so we don't make distinction between them!") but I doubt that's the reason and anyway it would be a fool approach. An other thing I don't appreciate in World Rugby is a recent one, id est their "funny" mood on the socials; it started during the World Cup, if I'm not wrong, with a lot of "memes", jokes and hilarious (?) photomontages in their facebook and twitter pages. I don't appreciate that way of narration, but maybe I'm just too old and that's the right way to involve the young fans. I don't know...

I would like to be able to filter by men/women, age, and sevens/XVs

agree on both counts:

1) say, I'm looking for FRA-ENG game sequence in 6N and
it is buried into a mass of 7s results held on same weekend

yes, there are filters in fixtures | results
but they work just during one click and
navigation becomes a kind of masochism

2) their social output is at least distasteful:

they spoil young generation -- who needs
ignorant fans that come to game just for jokes :?:

WR does the same mess. There should be at least a filter for 15s and 7s.

HT 10-12 in Brussels.

Belgium looking much better than in Portugal last week. Russia keeps willing to do things too quick and too complicated and can be thankful because I'd say its first try came after a knock-on. Anyway, unlucky as Kushnarev fell injured right at the start.

Not undeserved. Never a team so fit and technically good had such a weak mentality.

Holy shit the touchline ref in Portugal... Second Portuguese try wouldn't have survived a TMO check.

I wrote a long time ago that in end we will fight for survival in 1 division, but did not think that this would happen so quickly.

Romania need to change something in second half. Portugal seem superior right now. They play very attractive style of rugby. And did Romanians ditched yellow jerseys? Why so many flags on one jersey?
