Re: AUTUMN INTERNATIONALS 2021

In short then.. the absentees for the AI (Genge, Dolly, Martin, Youngs, Steward, Wiese, Van Staden, Montoya, Moroni) will only have an effect on one Premiership game which is the home match against Bath on 06 Nov. Saumaki will miss the Saints game also. That is unless they are rested post the tourn...

Re: AUTUMN INTERNATIONALS 2021

Holmes and Costelow miss out on Wales selection. They were conned, like so many. Costelow I think was sold a dream. Not sure he's going to be that impressed with how it's turned out. Holmes went knowing that he'd have a contract with Dragons for pretty much as long as he wants one, good financial s...

Re: Round 4 other matches

Absolutely cracking game.. 0-21 after 30 or so minutes followed by pretty much 52 unanswered points! :smt038 Smith, Esterhuizen, Green, Lynagh and Dombrandt all outstanding.. Barnes had a great game too I thought. Good to see him pinging Harding for a cheap shove in the back of Smith.. silly ill di...

Referee: Adam Leal (12th Premiership game). Assistant Referees: Paul Dix & Gareth Holsgrove. TMO: Stuart Terheege. Citing Officer: Danae Zamboulis.‌ Leal was good last season, seems to be one of the up and coming refs. Glad to have him on the whistle. I know what you mean but most of them seem to b...

Either way, if that was the other way around, they'd be uproar on here.
Can you imagine the reaction if it had been Farrell, not Kelly.
Someone would have started a petition to bring back hanging.

Also he’s my favourite analyst. His 6N comments on the BBC are a class apart and very entertaining.

Re: South African & Argentinian Players returns

It seems yet again we are back in the situation where we are paying our players who play in the championship for a full season when they only pay half a season. I wonder what has changed as its a luxury we previously could not afford Polata Nau, Matt Toomua and Lavanini springs to mind? I must say ...

Re: South African & Argentinian Players returns

If we’re genuine about player welfare, I’m hoping (for the right reasons) that we don’t see them until after the autumn internationals.
However much game time each has had, they’ve still been training and need a break from rugby to recover and come back refreshed.

Nadolo signed a new contract last year and I think he was in the middle of a 1 year deal wouldn't surprise me if he's signed up for at least 2 seasons.
He originally signed for 2 years, then added one more.

Re: RUGBY CHAMPIONSHIP 2021

Indeed, but the question remains when? & why would you drop Reffell... Never said I’d drop him just simply that I can’t wait to see those 3 play together. As previous posters mentioned there will need to be rotation in the back row and we are very well stocked You do like a foreign import Oakham. I...
