The ultimate rugby quiz: Take Two
BRAINTEASER: Take on @rugby365com‘s oracle Paul Dobson in this challenging quiz!
You will see your score at the end of the quiz and can challenge your friends and rivals – as you test your rugby knowledge.
We will provide the answers to this quiz in the next one, so you can see what the correct answers were.
Be honest and do it on your own and get your own score, not google’s answers! Nobody needs to know your score except you yourself, but it may stimulate an interest in rugby’s history.
PS: It is a timed quiz, so cheating and making use of Google to search for answers will see you being timed out!
PPS: As a result of some technical glitches in the first quiz, we have decided that two-word answers (like Sydney University) will become one word (SydneyUniversity). It is also case sensitive – SydneyUniversity, not sydneyuniversity
Good luck and enjoy!
