Re: Lions 2021

Did Kolbe receive a single pass from one of his teammates or did he just chase and jump for the high ball. What a waste of a talent.

Re: Lions 2021

Nigel Owens is on the Sky commentary team. Is he actually out there? Can’t think of a better candidate Err I think Gatland was asking for a neutral TMO........don't think Nige fits that category. Obviously no Kiwi or Aussie will fly out because "it is too dangerous" for them, as shown by ...

Re: New kit 21/22

I was just sharing it as a general thing and thought it would be appreciated regardless of one’s view of the kit designs, it was not intended to change people’s minds on them, :smt023 No. I think it's a really nice story. Wasn't being critical of the story itself. Just the 'design'. I don't know wh...

Re: New kit 21/22

Whatever your views on the kits’ designs, I’m sure everyone can agree this is really good: https://www.instagram.com/p/CRomSmDD-h1/?utm_medium=copy_link I understand the emotional attachment and the sense of privilege a supporter would have. I am very pleased for him. I am just trying to work out i...

Re: New kit 21/22

They look as if a teenager doing GCSEs in Media Studies, Visual Art and Textiles and Design has completed a cross curricular project, very poorly. Really, how does one of the world great rugby institutions end up with this sort of rubbish.

Re: Lions 2021

Surprised that no reference to Etzebeth and his neck rolling at breakdowns. It's his standard technique. Twice on Itoje in the space of two minutes on SA line in second half. Both coaches are right. Decision making with refs is now random / arbitrary. In front of the kicker / pinged / not pinged - i...

Johnny May on line 4
After today might be Radwan instead.
Wings have to be able to defend too.
I wonder how many tries Mr May would have scored today if he'd been on the pitch and raring to go. He was dross last season because Glaws were dross and England were too.

Re: England vs USA - 4th July 2021

Smith and McGinty are the leagues 2 best FH imo You really think Smith should be starting for the Lions in the Tests? How have you come to that conclusion?! Simmonds has performed better than Biggar this season,should he be there too? They havnt any international experience but I stand by my statem...

Without Smith, Quins would have been out of the top 4. Best Fly half in the UK.

Re: England vs USA - 4th July 2021

astonishing that players are being written off based on a single game in a totally scratch team! On that basis, the 1998 England touring side should have ditched players such as Wilkinson, Vickery and Lewesey..... It'd be horrible being a player now just knowing that whatever you do, whatever happe...

Re: England vs USA - 4th July 2021

Whilst I am not a fan of a 6 2 bench. I can understand it against certain teams and when there are two starters who can play 10. It backfired badly today. I really cannot understand the logic. I thought Freddie moved up another level, but for all those who complain about Ford's defence, is Smith re...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE VI: The Return of the Burns

I’m just being realistic. JVP is finding his way in the game. He’s not going from U20s to the senior squad overnight, like Reffell and Steward before him. Unlike many, I don’t own a pair of Tigers tinted glasses. Martin aged 19? Curry aged 19? Technically I don't think Martin played for the under 2...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE VI: The Return of the Burns

No You say that, but we have had situations before where we've had England #1 and #2 in the same position before (albeit not for some time, mind you) I’m just being realistic.
