    Very nice analogy Glenn and Gerard. I would like to suggest that you could also consider one of the more influential aspects of the game – the laws of rugby. Unlike soccer, the laws of rugby are often seen as being numerous, confusing, ambiguous and interpreted differently by referees. I can easily see the parallels here to how donor rules are applied to development. And sometimes the referee decisions (aka donors!) are not fair…

    PS: The ‘set pieces’ example was classically shown in the World Cup by the 2nd Japanese try against the Springboks (scored by the fullback Goromaru)…a beautiful example of set piece perfection…only if development set pieces could be so pure!

    This article provides an interesting analogy. Our soccer fans may think otherwise.

    So, when we watch the world cup for the next two months do so from a Development perspective.
