Re: Autumn Nations Cup

Awful game, badly officiated, biggest loser Rugby itself. England's work on high kicks illegal, doubt they will get away with it again. Oh get over yourself, for goodness sake. He's right about the kick tactics though. We ran some pretty obvious blocking lines and there were some pretty blatant obs...

Re: Autumn Nations Cup

You can't argue with the results but England are dreadful to watch. I can't help but feel there's so much more in this team but this super conservative gameplan is mind-numbing to watch.

Re: England's Worst 15

The selection of Deacon is laughable. You don't get 29 caps if you're not very good. Absolute tosh.

Re: England's Worst 15

It's completely academic but I still genuinely believe that Burgess would have made an incredible backrower. To play him at centre was monumentally stupid. I watch a lot of NRL and I've seen a lot of SB and i'm convinced he had all of the attributes to be an excellent 6 or 7, possibly even in an 8. ...

Re: Autumn Nations Cup

Glad to see George back at 10, Farrell is a very good inside centre but an international 10 he is definitely not. He can and does do a great job at fly half in the league but not at test level. I think England have the same problem they had with Dylan Hartley, they've selected a captain who isn't th...

Re: A Proper Clear Out

Sureiy a clear out also implies some form of replacement is needed. I don't think we can know if this is what was needed until we see who the replacements are. The club have stated that the post vacated by Murphy (Director of Rugby) will not be refilled. In which case we'd still need a scrum coach ...

Just when we think we've hit rock bottom, we descend into new levels of chaos.

Re: Wigglesworth in!

I'm going to go against the grain here, I think this is a good signing. Very solid player.

Re: Today’s games

Owen Farrell proving that George Ford is a better 10.

England may be undercooked but they've also been dreadful. Aimless high kicks giving Italy possession again and again. Rubbish.

Re: Ford out of England Squad

Eddie Jones must be the only person in the country who thinks Jacob Umaga is a better pick than Joe Simmonds.

Re: George Ford

Big fan of George but I think A) a rest will do him good and B) this should mean that Joe Simmonds gets a crack for England which he fully deserves.

This is really bad news. We've lost our most effective coach.
