In 1823, William Webb Ellis first picked up the ball in his arms and ran with it. And for the next 156 years forwards have been trying to work out why. - Tasker Watkins VC, LJ.

Oh dear...

I was looking up something on the IRFU website this morning when I noticed this pearl:

"Your use of this website and any dispute arising out of such use of the website is subject to the laws of England, Scotland and Wales."

Which, given that Scotland has a different legal system to England and Wales (which are one jurisdiction) isn't the sort of thing that fills one with confidence. And when that's the IRFU's take on simple matters like their own website, it's not really conducive to making one over-optimistic about fun things like cross-border tournaments like, ooooh, the Pro12 or HEC. You know, the ones the Irish provinces play in...
