Pub Quiz League Round 1 : Rugby

The opening round of the Pub Quiz League is devoted to the subject of Rugby - simply because at the launch of this feature of the website the first matches of the Six Nations Tournament had just been completed. In keeping with the quiz league's premise, the questions are, at times, slightly oblique, which will get the grey-matter ticking over. The total number of points available is 20 - each answer having a given value. Consequently, it is one point for an easy question but more for trickier brain-teasers. This is the league's form of discriminating power so that the cream rises to the top! Please note that the questions are NOT all related to Rugby Union.
