Rugby Isn't Boring . . . But Watching Lots Of It On TV - That'll Make You Very Dull, Indeed

The debates have raged on during the Autumn Nations Cup. For some, the game has become a snore-fest of kicking, pile-ups, penalties and shapeless set-pieces.

Wales Raise More Doubts Over Ryan Giggs' Future As Rob Page Given World Cup Role
