Salaries to be investigated by HMRC

Interesting to see it looks like the tax man has decided to investigate premiership (inc Sarries) salaries.

He looks good as a winger.
even better as a SH
not in his last game as one.
Sorry RB, I can’t remember Simmonds last game as scrum half, could you remind me what happened?

Re: BRISTOL vs TIGERS - Sat 27 Feb 21 (1300)

I am not sure I fully understand these selections but very pleased to see JVP restored and Kelly, Porter and Simmonds in the backs. As for forwards, even without Liebenberg, the 6’4” Leatigaga is still only the fifth tallest player in the pack. Let’s call him shorty! I love that the replacement prop...

Re: May 17th Fans back in Stadiums....possibly?

Completely different your viewpoint, but as a 32 year old, with no underlying health concerns I likely won't have been offered the vaccine at the point where the stadium is first open. I will stress I fully plan on having the vaccine as soon as I'm able, but if it becomes a requirement to have a ja...

Re: 20th Feb 2021 - Home vs Wasps

There is absolutely no argument in the laws of the game for Hanro staying on the pitch. If you're making one, it's through green, white and red-coloured spectacles. It really sounds to me that you are saying up to Hanro to jump for the ball and try to get to the right height to knee Bassett in the ...

Re: 20th Feb 2021 - Home vs Wasps

I agree that something needs to be done about the player jumping into someone on the ground. I am not sure what the rules could be though. If the player on the ground is stationary then the could have the right to the space but usually both players are moving but one has jumped and is literally fly...

I wonder if I am the only one who is extremely disappointed to see Wigglesworth there.

Re: England v Italy - 13th Feb at 14:15

Farrell is a good player, who: 1. Can place kick well 2. Can follow a game plan 3. Has a good pass to the left 4. Does not get the red Mist 5. Is liked by Eddie Jones. That’s all I’ve got. It’s simply not enough to be considered world class, and certainly not enough to be undroppable. We are now hal...

Re: 6 NATIONS 2021

You’ve kindly backed up my point. Blindly defend our players regardless and put down players from other clubs who might challenge our lads for places. I’ll ask again for clarification on what you felt Genge did badly. Perhaps you’ll respond this time. For what it’s worth I am not sure any of Englan...

Re: 6 NATIONS 2021

Finally, a measured assessment. Many of you are just using this to vent your dislike of Sarries. No one played worse yesterday than Ellis but that seems to have escaped people. As an outsider, Farrell may not be your 10 going forward but then you have to play him at 12. If you’re looking for a 10 f...

Re: 6 NATIONS 2021

England didn't lose because of Farrell. They lost because the whole team was poor. The pack was out played from the start. EJ clearly picked the wrong team, but hindsight is a wonderful thing. There weren't many on here saying Itoje shouldn't be starting before the game. And you can't plan for thin...

Re: Harry Simmons - Scrum Half?

I may be mis-remembering, but didn’t he lose the best part of a season with glandular fever?
I agree that before that he was looking like Lennie’s natural successor, but that seemed to drop him down the pecking order, and JVP has taken a step up.

Re: Jordan Taufua signs for Lyon OU with immediate effect

Not sure if anyone does tweets but this was from Adam Whitby yesterday.


Jordan Taufua’s situation “is an ongoing situation”, Steve Borthwick has just told me.


Edited to add: the time stamp on the tweet was 10:16 pm last night.

Re: Sale game moved - Teams up

Wigglesworth was playing his first game in nearly two months....expect him to start against Worcester with Bonilla at Fly half....... At best, Wigglesworth is the fifth choice scrum half at the club, and also is the one with least potential. If Borthwick selects him to start next week - and I suspe...
