WIN hospitality tickets to England v South Africa

Keith ProwseWin Tickets to England vs South Africa QBE International on 24 November 2012

There’s a lot at stake in the 2012 Autumn Internationals. World rankings are up for grabs, which could be crucial for seedings at the next Rugby World Cup, and it’s also been two years since the mighty southern hemisphere sides have toured Europe and that means there’s an plenty of pride on the line.

England take on Fiji, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand at Twickenham in November and December and they will be looking for good performances and to secure some wins as they build towards the home World Cup in 2015.

There will also be a number of interesting new law variations on show during the Autumn Internationals – which will be the first time they will be scrutinised at the highest level. To that end we thought we’d try and gauge the rugby fans’ opinion on some of these experimental laws. Do they make for a better game? Will they help make rugby more popular? And which variations should be enshrined in (rugby) law? All this and more can be debated by taking part in our survey, which we’re running in partnership with sports hospitality providers Keith Prowse.

To add to the temptation – Keith Prowse is also giving away two tickets with Rugby House hospitality to the England vs South Africa game at Twickenham on 24th November – so if you want to win the tickets please take the five minute survey. We’ll be publishing a report with the findings in November.

  1. After completing this survey i wanted to share some thoughts on rule changes.

    One rule change I would like to see is allowing players to hit tackles without wrapping the arms. They make the most spectacular hits (when done properly). I don’t believe they are particularly dangerous as they do it all the time in league and nobody bats and eyelid.

    I also think the deliberate knock on should just be a scrum offense not a penalty. How can you tell that the knock on was deliberate? Surely the player is always going for the interception, because that would always be a better outcome for him/her. For example Strettle for England (vs wales? i can’t remember)last six nations, obviously he tried to catch it even if 9 out of 10 times he was going to knock it on hes hoping it’ll bounce into his hands. I don’t believe batting the ball down is a particularly negative piece of play anyway.

    1. Nick wait until someone does it to deliberately ruin a try scoring opportunity. I remember the 1991 WC final when Campese did just that and prevented a world cup winning score. a penalty seemed like scant reward. No yellow cards back then and a 15 man Australia held on to win the match, mind you Webb had a horrible day with the boot that day.

      1. I just think there are too many times when the ref has to make a decision on whether the player actually tried to catch it (which is legal) or just batted it down when the two look exactly the same a lot of the time. If you only get one finger tip to the ball but genuinely thought you could catch it, you always concede a penalty even though it was a genuine attempt for the ball. At the moment I feel the rule punishes the defender going for the spectacular interception too often. If defending players can get there hands/one finger on the ball in flight they always do it anyway. I don’t think it would lead to lots more balls batted down. Have you ever seen a player back out of an interception opportunity no matter how likely it is to be dropped?

        1. I have seen players try it on, going for an interception that is not on, but conveniently scuppers an attack. I just feel if you take away the sanction you will see more of it as it will be risk free, but I guess we’ll have to disagree on this one.

      1. Sorry Hutch – I’m either blind, thick and have no common sense (don’t speak to my wife!) or the link isn’t there. Followed the blog link onto the Keith Prowse page. Can’t see the link anywhere. Above Terms & Conditions in the bottom left hand corner (I assume that this is what you mean) there are links to Wimbledon or Henley but no competition link.

  2. I’ll get my coat! Sorry, I am blind, stupid, lacking in common sense and my wife is right!
    I was looking on KP page, didn’t even cross my mind to look on this page…..

  3. I have been with superbru from the start just like we make our picks everyday it is time to make your picks and believe me i am the strongest player
