1 year of theblitzdefence rugby – the most read articles

Time flies. It has been 12 months since the first theblitzdefence article (The day of the jackal) was written and 60 posts later we are still here.

The last 12 months have been an interesting time in rugby and we have written about cheating, diving, jackaling, mauling, Eddie Jones, Pat Lam, Warren Gatland, the TMO process, the difficulties of refereeing and lots more.

Thank you to all those who have read the articles and have contributed via Twitter or Facebook. We look forward to the 2016 6 Nations and to celebrate the last 12 months here are the most read articles from the past 12 months.
