Re: England Squad for down under

Odd not to see Marchant in there. He’s not one of the senior players who would benefit from a rest. Will have to see if he is in the Quins team this weekend. I suspect Jones has chosen to include as few of his "senior" players as possible. Notable that the "leadership" group are...

Re: England Squad for down under

So an England get together just b4 the play-offs. You couldn’t make it up :smt017 Thought it was next week It is but still a risk of injuries. Do you know the itinerary? I bet half of it is probably going to be squad photos for the newbies etc. I'm not sure they'll get to the smashing seven bells o...

Replacements: Youngs, Rizzo, Bateman, Barrow, Hamilton, White, Williams, Smith. Is that fairly well loaded? Yes. I think all of those players by that point ...

Re: BT confirms sport link to Discovery TV

As the headline says. I'm not sure what it means as the story is thin but there is a link here: https://www.msn.com/en-gb/money/other/bt-finalises-discovery-sports-tie-up/ar-AAXaIa3?ocid=msedgdhp&pc=U531&cvid=d764ebf601ef4b738baa77b4cac53a50 Well, I think BT Sport was going to be sold off, ...

Re: Glaws after compensation from Wuss

I read that earlier today myself, it appears they claim it cost them £250K in lost ticket revenue after refunding all tickets & hospitality sold. Easily that. Averaging solidly over 10000 attendance per match. Complete sympathy with their position. I think Worcester's insurers need to be paying...

Re: Tigers v Newcastle (A) 21st May 2022 KO 15:00

Given the week off this weekend, and the week off the weekend following this fixture, I think it'll be a fairly strong team to secure top spot. However, I could see a scenario where Ilione and Edwards are given Premiership debuts from the bench. That's a risk worth taking perhaps. I take your point...

Re: Boots?

Lots of the modern boots don't have studs as we'd remember them and are more blades than studs. That could well be having some impact. Also,.the pitches these days tend to be more lush all year round than they did in yesteryear. That too could also be having an impact. Blades are very much out of f...

Re: Tigers v Leinster (H) - Saturday 07th May 2022 - 5-30pm KO

Really don't get having WW on the bench, not exactly a player if you need to chase the game, otherwise pretty much as expected, but having Nemani on the bench is a risk. That Leinster side is stacked, if Reffell shows up well against that back row he will force Pivac's hand surely.... Agree regardi...

Yes he’s a work in progress trouble is people are acting like he’s the greatest player in the league already.
And this is the point. And they call him "Harry"... :smt017

Re: Bristol (Home) - 30th April 2022 KO 15:00

Shame Arundell is English, Welsh and Scottish qualified. He’s Cyprus qualified as well, but that would be a real coup. But he still needs to learn to tackle. A typical BT Sports love-in player: all flash in attack, flakey when the big men are coming at him. Talk of him going to Scotland earlier in ...

Re: Bristol (Home) - 30th April 2022 KO 15:00

Henry Arendell from Irish has highlighted the benefit of youth, a good rugby brain, and pure unrivalled speed. Cant tackle yet, but Kevin would work wonders.. think he would fit in well. As for Tommy Reffell, we must must must keep him. Neil Back Mk 2 Shame Arundell is English, Welsh and Scottish q...
