The scrum and the tackle are the two really contentious areas of the game. If you get those two aspects right, most rugby matches will work in your favour.

Did your grandparents ever share any stories about growing up in the country?
Coaches do so much research about a referee because they believe refereeing is such a crucial part of the game that the result may hinge on what we say or do. They probably know more about me than I know myself!
You have got to boss scrums. The players need to know what you want them to adhere to. Then it is up to them to decide whether they are adhering to that or not.

This building size should capture a segment of the market that we feel is active and has not been previously targeted in the Lincoln County Industrial Park

Tears come from the heart and not from the brain. Leonardo da V
Science is the captain, and practice the soldiers.
Study the science of art and the art of science.
I am still hopeful. A falcon, Time. But the coincidence is probably accidental.
