Re: Heavier music next season

Loudspeaker getting too loud for me.

Stopped going to London Sevens as it was painful and frequent- lots of tries in Seven’s.
I hope it was just special occasion and next season back to normal, perfectly audible and not deafening.

Re: Semi final v Saints - 11th June 2022 KO 4-30pm

No Ashton May just be Nadolo at centre ( or anywhere ) for last 20 viewed as ultimate game change opportunity

Re: Red Roses

Shame also that after consecutive Grand Slams, 18 matches unbeaten including 2 v NZ that BBC SPOTY doesn't have them in Team of The Year.
Maybe winning a World Cup will attract attention.

Re: Richard Blaze

Their gain, Red Roses loss, They may be professional compared to many of their rivals but the scrum and general performance of the pack has become superlative under Blaze.
Hope it won't affect their World Cup chances ( 2021, should be ok ? )

Going To Calvisano

My sister and I are going independently via Verona.

Is there a meeting place pre match in Calvisano or a bar/clubhouse at the ground to meet and maybe have a libation and chat ?

Post match driving to Lake Garda in winter dark may mean little post game supping.

Re: Wippee Friday night game! PRC fixtures

By motorcycle is a good way to go, amble via back road scenery and then parking at the ground is free.
Of course winter games are not so amenable.

Re: Forward passes and putting the ball in

Offside at kick off - there is a line on the pitch for heavens sake
Penalty kicks ( from hand ) taken far in advance of the mark
- shouldn't that be a scrum to the opposition ?
Apply that one and see how quickly it dies out.

Re: If you support a club.....

A colleague and friend has supported Middlesborough FC for 60+ years and his son is now also a fan.
It's more than results and League position.
It's heart, hope and love.

Re: The Tigers Team That Never Was

I think Vunibaka did sign for us but was refused a work visa as he was not an international ( sevens not being counted )
So we only got Serevi who had a mixed time.
I suspect they were a package and we actually wanted Marika more than Serevi.

Europe Head High

Having watched the games so far I have seen real high tackles, over the shoulder, intentional contact with the head, accidental contact with the head and probable contact. Until our game there wasn't a penalty given let alone a yellow card. Commentators said more than once how Premiership it would b...

Re: Online Tickets

Dear Mr Beat,
Unfortunately it is a technical issue as the ticket office informed me on Friday and today, I was just hoping there might have been more information available than try again.
