Sharks sink Toulon’s battleship

The Sharks defeated Toulon 12-10 last night to win the 2015 Rugby Masters. The North versus South challenge match at Stade Mayol contrasted the different hemisphere’s styles of rugby.

Not again! Etzebeth & Carriza out

The Stormer’s lock injury problems from last season are back before the competition has even kicked off.

Super Rugby Team Profile – Rebels

Rebels squad Melbourne have been waiting for the so-called Rebelution since they limped into Super Rugby in 2010.
