Catch up in the Rugby week that was: July 4-10

A very disappointed Crusaders team looking on while the Reds celebrate their much deserved victory

We find ourselves in Brisbane looking to the Super Rugby final between the Reds and the Crusaders. Reds proved too much for the Crusaders, with the title winning try scored by Will Genia, who has had a blinding season. Was this an insight to a World Cup match perhaps? Missed the game? Check out the highlights below…

With the Reds claiming the Super Rugby title, the domestic season is finally over. Missed any of it? The guys at Fox Sports have provided you with their highlights of the season…

World Cup fever is slowly building with many nations are releasing their shiny new strips. France, Ireland and Wales kicked things off this week all revealing their September uniform.

While on the subject of Wales, they believe their kit is so innovative, they chose to test it out in a number of ‘scientific’ ways shown below. Fellow Welsh wonders Goldie Lookin’ Chain popped into the Wales training base just outside Cardiff, to try their hand at the sport. Probably not the best idea, but it does make for entertaining viewing.

Heading back to British shores, with Luke Watson leaving Bath, Stuart Hooper will be the new skipper at the Somerset based club.

After leaving Leeds in May, Neil Back has decided to take the helm at Rugby Lions, after completing a recent tour of Camp Bastian with Steve Back.
