Quote of the day: “The knockout stage is more like a 19th-century duel…”

“Yet no amount of big data or game management can prepare players
for the World Cup. This is not a military campaign like the European
Six Nations championship or the [Southern Hemisphere] Rugby
Championship…. The knockout stage is more like a 19th-century duel,
a spectacle where even the world’s best may fall victim to self-doubt.”

~ Lionel Barber, writing for FT Rugby: World Cup 2015
