Introducing Monday Afternoon Scrum Half (MASH), A Weekly Rugby Round Up

LMBF is the premier home for rugby coverage, catered specifically to fans who may not exactly be experts of the sport, as we all know.

In the most recent World Cup, Japan upset South Africa in a thrilling finish and more recently, Ireland stunned the All Blacks right here in Chicago at Soldier Field. Earlier today, Scotland beat Wales with a final score of 29-13. Highlights for your viewing pleasure Maybe it wasn’t quite as dramatic as the other two upsets but still note worthy all the same.
