    Compliance certificate should there be a hard copy?

    A piece of paper is not going to make the difference between a sale or not unless the buyer is a complete d*ck. It may be reflected in the price but unless you are planning to pop your clogs soon I wouldn't worry about it.

    Rugby world cup.

    World rugby have a stated policy of residency. I believe it is 2 years, hence why you get “foreign” players playing for whoever will have them. The “smaller” nations will only improve by playing stronger opposition and gaining experience from seasoned coaches etc. If rugby is to survive it...
