Re: Itoje article

An aside on private v state. It's interesting to note that Jonny Wilkinson lists Lord Wandsworth College as his former school. Well it was in the Sixth Form, but from age 11+ - 16+ he had been at a place called Pierrepont. It was ranked three from the bottom of the Sunday Times 'A' Level 'GCSE' Inde...

Re: Warren Gatland?!

My view for a long time has been that there was no justification in giving Gatland three tours. The fact he isn't even coaching in the British or Ireland now makes it even more ludicrous. By all means select the very best coach on the planet to coach a national team, irrespective of nationality. But...

Re: American Investors for Tigers?

Obviously a glass half empty man. If you think that the rugby fraternity is full of selfish self serving people suggest you are mixing with the wrong crowd. The fact that you think of a rugby as a "fraternity" tells me everything I need to know. Did you know that women are allowed to play rugby now...

As a reference he lost 21kg while at Sarries and won 2 prem titles and a European cup.
Wish I could lose half that.
Wish I could win half that.

Re: EUROPEAN SEMI FINALS

Feel desperately sad for Bruce Craig. In spite of his millions and close friendship with Nigel Wray, it seems that for him money doesn't guarantee success.

Cipriani starts well everywhere but soon enough he’ll blow up again and be out on his ear
I await tomorrow's Sundays' and even at this late stage the predictable pleading from assorted journos arguing how Cips' simply must go with the Lions. Yawn.

Re: Progress Under Borthwick

I take it the jury is no longer out? Last night was a game of two halves or, to put it another way, a 40 minute performance. Things have improved for sure, but I don't think anyone was sincerely doubting that at any point this season, but a bit too soon to say the just is entirely out. I'll stick t...

Re: SAINTS AT HOME 24TH APRIL 2021

My outlook on games has somewhat changed over recent months. Of course I look forward to a win but during this time of real transition I genuinely look forward to seeing the long term improvement strategy in what we are about as a club become visible in our performance ie how we play, how we suppor...

Re: EUROPEAN SEMI FINALS

Why may we not assume that M. Gauzere has learned and progressed as we expect players to? I'm sure we will speak to him about his expectations and, I hope, play him out of the game. Remember - they only referee when you are doing it wrong. 'Remember - they only referee when you are doing it wrong.'...

Re: Ringfencing NOW upon us ?

The ring-fencings of the European Super League and the Gallagher Prem come from different places. For the ESL it's about growth: securing extremely lucrative TV deals and guaranteeing that income every year. For the GP it's about survival: stabilising financially as costs have risen, income has all...

Re: Away vs Bath 18th April

I read in Travellers post that in January 20/20 we were unfit, couldn't win a line out etc etc. In fact a look at results will show that pre pandemic we were actually on the way to recovery, a 30- 30 draw with Quins, defeating Bristol 31-18, Cardiff 30- 20, a losing bonus point away to Pau, a loss ...
