Re: Premiership Week 18

Great interview by him. Agreed, some people question how much the Lions means to the players. Just show them that interview. He really is devastated to be left out but credit to him he channelled it well today and was very good. As TFS says his scrum work was crucial to the victory. https://twitter...

Re: 7th May - Sale Away

It seems to me that, although we have recruited some top players and there are some very good youngsters coming through, as a team we're not much further forward than we were twelve months ago. The constant emphasis on kicking simply invites the opposition to run the ball back - and there are some ...

Re: Itoje article

Interesting how Itoje opined recycled ideas from the 1970s as "a breath of fresh air", but it's good to see sportspeople take a stand on issues they believe.

Re: Premiership Week 18

Saints miles off the pace for most of the game, more interested in a scrap than playing rugby. Perhaps their season peaked at WR.

Re: 7th May - Sale Away

This is just my thoughts from watching the highlights as I was out last night so missed the game: Weak tackling for the first try In my opinion Rodd was clearly held and should have been pinged To be fair to Sale, MacGinty is playing out of his skin at the moment Murimurivalu's try was quite harsh a...

Re: Itoje article

A brilliant read, thank you for sharing. Despite the interview clearly stating that politics and sport do mix, I'm going to be largely apolitical for the purpose of forum rules. I had read somewhere that rugby's lack of global reach had been the reason for Itoje, despite being signed up to Roc Natio...

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

Absolutely buzzing, not just for us lucky 8000 odd fans and the club but also those players like Wiese, Nadolo, Brink, Kelly, Moroni etc who have never experienced a Welford Road with supporters before.

Re: Super Rugby 2021

https://youtu.be/lkY0eHoMXBM Looks like some game, despite the weather some incredible skill on show. Chiefs will be kicking themselves that McKenzie wasn't on song with the boot otherwise that would have made things more interesting. Hopefully the Crusaders will look after the trophy this time round.

Re: Who’s your pick for Lions 2021

Ryan is better than Hill in my opinion, but Gray should have been picked above both of them.

Re: FANTASY SAXONS/ENGLAND SUMMER TOUR 23

Personally I would drop Slade and Vunipola but have the others in around the squad. Yes Smith 100% deserves to be capped, but I think you need Ford to be starting to have that consistent leadership presence. I would prefer him to be captain too over Ewels.
