Phil Danaher[edit]

Hello, I noticed that Danaher was named in the Ireland squad at 1995 Rugby World Cup in South Africa, though he newer went on the pitch. -- SERGIO aka the Black Cat 17:59, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

Please help evaluate a draft submitted to AFC review[edit]

Please evaluate Draft:Scottish Rugby Schools Conference, particularly for notability. If you do not wish to, or know how to, perfprm a full AFC review simply post your opinion to the draft's Talk page. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 15:51, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Please, this draft has been waiting for almost three weeks. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 14:32, 16 September 2015 (UTC)
@Dodger67: If this brings no result, you should bring in some active members, perhaps? Callmemirela 🍁 {Talk} 00:53, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

This should also come to members' attention for reviewing about rugby. Callmemirela 🍁 {Talk} 01:20, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

Ruggero Trevisan[edit]

Hello, the player quit playing on June 2015 at age 25 because of too many injuries and later entered seminary in Rome to be ordained priest. All the sources are in the Italian article. -- SERGIO aka the Black Cat 21:35, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

Commons:Category:2015 Rugby World Cup[edit]

Hello, is anyone attending the 2015 World Cup? Please take photos and videos. Thanks! --NaBUru38 (talk) 18:41, 12 September 2015 (UTC)

Yes I encourage this too. There were some great photos uploaded from the last World Cup, and considering this one is in England and Wales, with the substantially larger population, I hope we see even more this year! -- Shudde talk 05:07, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

Will Green[edit]

Would someone please check the recent edits by an IP who has used some very confident edit summaries. If the IP's edits should be retained, the height needs to be fixed:

  • {{convert|5|ft|11|in|abbr=on}} → 5 ft 11 in (1.80 m)

The problem is that this ref says 6 ft 0 in and 256 lb. My instinct tells me the IP's claims should be checked but I don't know which sources are reliable. Johnuniq (talk) 07:18, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

    • I've reverted and given a reason on the articles' talk page. FruitMonkey (talk) 18:00, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

Winning streaks in international matches[edit]

I'm looking for any views on when a "winning streak" in international fixtures ends. I changed the winning streaks on the Australia v England article so that the streak end date is the date of the final win, rather than the next defeat. For example - Australia's record winning streak is 4 games, which took place on 3/11/84, 23/5/87, 29/5/88 and 12/6/88 - the streak end date is shown as 5/11/88, which is the date of England's next win. To me, the winning streak ended on 12th June 1988, but the change has been reverted so that the streak continues to 5th November 1988 - it seems a bit absurd to run a "winning streak" to a date past the last win - does anyone have any opinions either way? --Bcp67 (talk) 20:13, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

I think it would depend on the way it is phrased. For the above, I think one would say "Australia had a four-game winning streak from 3/11/1984 to 12/6/1988", but you would also say "Australia's four-game winning streak ended on 5/11/1988, when they lost to England". In the article you specified, which simply indicates the date range of the winning streak, it would be similar to the former, so ending on 12/6/1988 would be correct and I fully agree with your interpretation.

Tribute Somerset 3 South & notability[edit]

I have looked at Wikipedia:WikiProject Rugby union/Notability and the levels at English rugby union system but am unsure about the notability of some Rugby competition articles:

could some advise whether they should be nominated for deletion?— Rod talk 14:14, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

I have now nominated most of these at: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Tribute Somerset 3 South.— Rod talk 10:59, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

Chris Wyles[edit]

Hello, is actually this photograph suitable for Commons? I noticed that its uploader has some contributions of uncertain source.. -- SERGIO aka the Black Cat 18:02, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

Glengarth Sevens[edit]

Nominated for AfD today - this sevens tournament had some notable participants but hard to claim notability for the event itself, and there is no secondary sourcing. Discussion here WP:Articles for deletion/Glengarth Sevens if anyone wants to comment --Bcp67 (talk) 13:17, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
