Re: Clubs on the brink

Why is the government to blame for the state of Rugby finances? The rich owners who have financed this explosion in player wages with no thought for a sustainable financial structure are to blame, they have put the clubs into hock for their own personal aggrandisement, Covid 19 is only the catalyst ...

Re: Clubs on the brink

What is the purpose of professional club rugby in England? If anyone knows please let the rest of us in on it because from where I am watching it is being driven up a very dark alley to no ones benefit but the ego's of rich men! Clubs like Sale rent half the SA team to play in front of no one ( in n...

Re: Romain Poite

Is one of the symptoms of Covid 19 an increase in randomness of decisions?
I watched the game and though as well as the coughing he was very off in decision making, even more than is normal for him!

Re: European competitions

Believe this one is a bridge too far for Sarries. Part of me would like to see them get through , but just can't see it. Leinster will be a tough nut to crack for anyone in this competition . Part of me wants to see them to lose by 50 and to never be seen in any rugby competition again, the other p...

Re: A question.

By now we should be able to test every NHS workers, care workers and teachers as they arrive at work every day (or by daily home testing) this should be a minimum. There seems to be a lack of focus and headless chickens behaviour seems to be he order of the day but forgoing a few tests for sports te...

Re: Puzzled - Saracens!

It ain't necessarily so... To say that an omission (general) can be regarded as an error (general) is patently false. Some omissions may be errors in the same way that some You are presuming to know which is which as a starting point, if information is not passed from A to B, how can B or C tell if...

Re: Puzzled - Saracens!

I would posit that an omission can be regarded as an error, the fact that something is deliberately omitted does not preclude it from being erroneous and and error can be an error of omission!

Re: Gloucester vs. Tigers - Sun 30 Aug 20 (1630)

I side with Austin here, we seem to be conceding games at selection time, I think the LI game was the one for the youngsters and Glouster :smt011 - Bath the games to try to see where we really are. I think the coaches are chickening out, a full blooded Tigers first 15 against any other team they wou...

Re: Referees

What a strange world we live in, a top class ref like Doyle is given his P45 and the raft of incompetent clowns who do not seem to know the laws let alone apply them are kept in employment. My only hope is that most of the premiership ref's pay is linked to performance pay, so it is cheaper to keep ...

Re: Annoyance over forward passes

Re the forward passes in the Bath game, it would be good to know if the ref and TMO not even seeming considering them was due to a. personal preference of the officials to re-interpret the laws of the game. b. as a result of another of these unhelpful guidances given to speed up the game. c. incompe...

Re: BT Sport Coverage of Quins vs Sale .... Why Oh Why ?

Simon P raises a fair point, I do not mean the subject matter, I wish sports programs would just stick to the sport, after all there was a lot of rugby subject matter to be covered, if BT wanted to they could have put a trailer to a separate item covering BLM, NHS or whatever, I think this is really...

This is precisely where I smell a great big rat. Their books SHOULD have been examined, in order to to find the whole truth, one way or the other.
