Re: Of squirrels and handbags

Very keen on getting hold of nuts, are squirrels...

That's actually not a bad Tigers shirt design he's wearing in the link.

That would be George Ford? I refuse to accept that Chutes's autobiography could be titled anything but "Bignose Strikes Again". :smt023

Re: George Ford, Bath the perfect place

The perfect place if you want to fight with Henson as well. Not sure George's left hook is quite as tasty as Fearns's, though.

Re: Benjamin

Excellent news. As is the indication that Deacs is fit. Almost like having two new signings!

Storming Norming! Now there's a blast from the past.

Re: Henson at it again it seems

Far from it. I've merely pointed out how easy it is for the salary cap to be circumvented, to the point that any club with sufficient financial clout can run rings around it with impunity, yet remain within the law of the land. Likewise how can the League prevent Cockers from watching the match on ...

Re: Ex-Tiger Will Skinner forced to retire at 29

Terrible shame. Will is such a nice guy. I understood why Tigers didn't keep him, but I always thought it was unfortunate. Any number of times he would have been just the man we needed at 7.

All the best to him, and to Olly Kohn too.

Re: RFU Judgment on Cockerill

I'm a Cockers fan, but to be honest, I'd have shrugged my shoulders at a four-match ban for excessive effing and blinding and generally being a bit OTT for a man with a bit of form, and hoped that he'd value the benefits of restraint a little more without losing his passion and general Cockersness. ...

Re: Music played

What you want at halftime is a nice bit of John Cage. 4'33" would be favourite.

Re: Easy on the eye players

I have heard it said (while on the terrace) that Steve Mafi has the "best bum in the squad". Quite a little drooling fan club Steve's buns have got there. Haven't heard the like since Tom Varndell left.

Re: Offy and UnOffy - a history?

I registered on both this site and the unoffy at about the same time and used to post on both (rather more on here) because I liked the way the two forums have different dynamics. One of the features of the unoffy I've always liked is that it's part of a set of boards including the other Prem clubs,...
