Re: Elitism in Rugby

Hardly missing the point! The fact that the pathways are better mapped out is firmly embedded in history. Public schools are where the game originated, and it's still a minority sport in most of Britain. Who do you expect to do the "re-mapping"? There are comments on here about corruption, which is ...

Re: Elitism in Rugby

The word "elitism" is a complete red-herring! Fleabane is the only one who has made a pertinent comment. If it were not for the fact that grammar/public schools play rugby, the game wouldn't exist! Coaches/clubs/etc would happily take any good players, whatever their backgrounds. Successive socialis...

Re: Guinness threat to London Irish

"...............choose to withdraw sponsorship. That is their right." Of course it is their right, but this is symptomatic of modern society; all that is needed nowadays to ruin someone's reputation is a media indictment. Being tested in a court of law no longer means anything. You have said it your...

Re: Guinness threat to London Irish

So, being cleared in court means nothing? Trial by media is all?

Re: Rugby Paper article

"Given that we know the players leaving, we do not know the final signings so this could indicate that it has been put right."

Sincerely hope you're right Tigerbeat.

Re: Rugby Paper article

"Cohen admits mistakes have been made but insists he retains the confidence of his board....." What does this say about the rest of the board? He also admits that the balance between the back and the forwards has not been right. I don't understand what justification he has for saying that it has bee...

Smithy

Matt Smith will be sadly missed. Over the years, he's been a true servant of the club, able to step in to cover for injuries to centres (of which we could still be short). All the best for the future Matt.

Re: All Coaches except Boris must go now..

Let's start by acknowledging that injuries have hit us harder than any other Prem side. That said, I don't agree with some of the comments here about players not fronting up. We simply should be doing better with the squad that we have. It's obvious that what they are being told, doesn't work! We st...

Agreed, but I wonder why the mystery, why he isn't mentioned in any of the transfer lists.
