The truth of the matter is we have been waiting for a reply from the IRB in regard to our application to host the Official RWC website.

As you can see from our redesign we are still colour-blind. Also, you'll be excited to know that we are in the process of recruiting some new illiterate talent to augment our current stable of high-school dropout wannabe journalists.
