I think what's become apparent is that under Borthwick's tenure you're either in or you're out.

Re: Mike Ford

Presently would be more than a little interested in a return to coaching Rugby League , so it would seem : https://www.examinerlive.co.uk/sport/rugby-league/mike-ford-rugby-league-coach-20984577 Great interview that. I'm not really into RL but there is no doubt there are things that the two codes c...

Re: 13 team league 21/22

Franchise Rugby on the way. Genuine question - why? Maybe I don’t follow rugby politics/economics closely enough, but I don’t see how this decision leads to franchise rugby. On a related matter - I’m not exactly sure what the term ‘franchise rugby’ really means. It seems to be a term fairly loosely...

Re: Premiership Final

Without wishing to be a party pooper 9 years ago Quins won the Prem with a similar style of play and looked what happened since. As much as my heart would love to see them repeat it consistently over the next couple of seasons my head is wondering if realistically they will not get found out. Either...

Re: 13 team league 21/22

Can anyone tell me who in their right mind came up with the idea of having thirteen teams in a league. It was a forced decision because of Covid. Not ideal but we don't live in an ideal world. A decision needs to be made further down the line though... whether relegation/promotion resumes, 12/13/14...

Re: Premiership 2021-2022

Injuries and international call ups will have a serious impact for us and other squads with England and Southern Hemisphere players. Rugby Union must do more to ensure us, the loyal fans, see more of our players in a club shirt. How they do that I’m not sure! Nothing different to any other season.....

Re: Premiership 2021-2022

I think lot of teams have big question marks over them next season including to some extent ourselves: Bath - pretty obvious really, they blow hot and cold - hard to see that changing currently with stadium plans not helping matters Bristol - looked great for much of the season but the further it we...

Re: Championship rugby

I agree, it is tough. We are being asked to forget it ever happened - BT commentary team especially are saying "move on, it's past". For me, there is still a sour taste, exacerbated by their insistence that they are 'humble'. I don't think anyone realistically expects anyone to forget it ever happe...

Re: 13 team league 21/22

No idea. You got to take the rough with the smooth. First aim is to get in the play offs. Then if possible get a home semi. We've no idea at the start of the season who will be picked for internationals, get injured, get suspended. Need to have as many bases covered as possible. Don't envy the coach...

Re: Championship rugby

57-15 at the end.

Glad that has been done and dusted.

Will be interesting to see what happens with the Championship now.
