Infobox rugby union biography[edit]

I notice you have been adding in Varsity Cup information in the rugby infoboxes recently. While I'm all for the idea that these are included, they are effectively club games and do not have First Class status. I've made a proposition on this talk page to include a new section called "Amateur team(s)", in which this information can be shown (as well as SARU Community Cup information and so on). Would you mind having a look and sharing your thoughts or ideas re this? I've also proposed a change to have a coloured title bar with a logo, similar to the infobox for other languages (eg. French and Afrikaans). Thanks in advance. TheMightyPeanut (talk) 19:48, 10 April 2013 (UTC)


Why are you changing templates from Infobox rugby biography to the older Infobox rugby union biography? Please discuss at the project page before continuing. noq (talk) 19:55, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

Hello - can you respond to this and stop changing to older infobox templates without getting consensus for the change. noq (talk) 17:50, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
I just started a discussion here. TheMightyPeanut (talk) 08:37, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
