Rugby-Talk has had a change of clothes, but we’re still the same beast!
Over the weekend, I have made some radical changes to the website, some of which appear at first glance to the naked eye, with a bit of a new look and feel, and some run under the radar to make the site perform as it should and also adding valuable added functionality.
Was it strange to open your favourite rugby wensite, Rugby-Talk, and be confronted with a new look?
Tell us what you think of the new look and feel!
There have been a few amusing pieces published on our site this week. It seems that spirits are generally high after last weekend’s rugby results which appear to have left many folk Bulle and/or Bok bef.. (crazy). It is in this light hearted backdrop that we bring this article about the Championship which we heard about earlier this week.
The Vodacom Blue Bulls are playing DHL Western Province this Saturday at Loftus, and as we know Western Province sports a few nimble smaller players… or midgets, if you want to be blunt and not so Politically Correct.
A young Blue Bulls supporter, shows us how and what to do, to beat Western Province…
A former NRL player has been banned for 8 matches for biting an opponents penis in a club match last week.
I was idly sitting going through Facebook, amongst others to have a look at how our Rugby-Talk Facebook Page was doing, and came accross this gem posted by one of my school buddies who now live in the Cape.
Thanks Dolf Baard, for giving me one of the biggest rolling laughs I have had in years…
Without further ado, here it is, time for some light relief:
How do they say… “Only in Africa…”
Hope in a manner of speaking that the Springboks can cure a few headaches in New Zealand on the weekend!
Finally I have managed to get the time to set up SuperBru Pools for Rugby-Talk for the Currie Cup and The Rugby Championship!
Both Pools have been upgraded to Super Pools, giving us the added benefit and advantage to show a bit more than usual, like our SuperBru Widgets for these two competitions on the right hand sidebar.

When we started Rugby-Talk none of us could have foreseen how this website would have grown, matured and become so successful. It all started as a group of friends broke away to form our own thing and where we could discuss rugby without having to scour through a plethera of political comments, racial slurring and plain nasty and vindictive comments.
Today Rugby-Talk has become a leader, with great content and our Live Game Articles are unrivelled in the rugby world.
To date we have 7 126 Articles plus another 174 web pages and over 280 000 comments on the website. We have generated over 7 320 000 Page Impressions (website clicks) since we first started counting a few months after inception of the website.
It’s that time of the year again – RBS Rugby Force weekend is here. This is an initiative by the Scottish Rugby Union to get folk involved with their local rugby clubs.

This initiave was launched by the daughter of one of the bloggers on Sharksworld. Most of us are passionate about the plight of our rhinos.
