NOTES are defined herein as short papers or articles on the tactics, strategies, and playing and coaching philosophies of the game of Rugby Union Football. The differences between a note and an article are primarily length and focus. We define a note as a submission of fewer than 2000 words and an article as a submission of 2000 to 10,000. The note is usually more specific and almost certainly has a focus on a single and particular subject.
NOTES are indexed according to the following plan:
The NOTES themselves will be headed by the title and author, followed by the Note itself. A brief biographical information on the author with specific reference, of course, to involvement with the game of rugby will follow each Note.
- The original date of publication at this website or in any previous publication according to the six-digit sequence of YR/MO/DAY (so 1 January 2003 would be "030101" and 29 June 1948 would be "480629"
- The author's last name.
- A brief "slug" indicating the topic(s) of the Note.
