NEW YORK, NY – There’s a lot of chatter coming out of Australia around the launch of rugby maverick Andrew “Twiggy” Forrest’s Global Rapid Rugby. And as often is the case, chatter begets chatter. In this case, it’s in the form of the “spirited” exchange of alternate views from the very opinionated George Hook and our host Matt McCarthy. In this Week 75 installment of our Fantasy Sports Network Studio show the two tackle (aside from each other) the aforementioned Rapid Ruby and the Curse of 7s… as it takes on 15s. Topics touched upon:
–Getting Twiggy With It: Is Andrew Forrest merely a flash-in-the-pan version of PT. Barnum?
–Is Rugby Really a Global Game – or is it just an illusion flaunted by the top nations?
–Are 7s coaches any good?
–Is USA Rugby’s rise to the top in 7s and 12th in 15s solely because of Speed & Strength?
–Does 7s require an Skill?
-The Benedict Arnold of Rugby
–Winston Churhill’s George Hook to McCarthy’s FDR.
