Putting the fact that Salmond is not a socialist aside, if we all moved to countries that reflect our political leanings you could have had a nice long tour of South America in the 50s, 60s and 70s as successive right wing juntas rose and fell! An opportunity missed!


"Salmond started his political life as a committed left-winger inside the SNP and was a leading member of the socialist republican organisation within it, the 79 Group. He was, along with other group leaders, suspended from membership of the SNP when the 79 Group was banned within the larger party."

Tu quoquo won't increase attendances either. 
 
If you think one-out hit-ups are what make RL then fair enough. I think it is repetitive. Even a dummy scissors or the occasional circle pass would add some variety.


But it's not one out hit ups as you well know. Are you quite sure we are talking about the same code?

You mentioned some specific events in some specific games. I can't really comment as I have not seen those games but it doesn't really alter the point I was making. As I mentioned earlier in the thread, I am perhaps a reasonably close facsimile of the sort of person RL will need to attract to the sport outside of the heartland areas for it to grow outside of those areas. Much of the play in RL looks very repetitive, as boring as watching collapsed scrums perhaps to complete the obligatory comparison to RU.


You mean that we need to attract people who dislike and misrepresent the game? How does that work?
