Re: Worlds Highest Paid Players .......

Look at the falloff from 1st to 4th in the World, let alone down to squad players who are barley out of the academy fullback/wing: £1m -> £550k (-45%) centre: £780k -> £420k (-46%) flyhallf: £1m -> £600k (-40%) scrum half: £620k -> £350k (-45%) prop: £480k -> £300k (-37%) hooker: £500k -> £200k (-60...

Crofty was the fastest forward I have ever seen
And the best international lineout BR forward ever imo
I think a certain Martin Corry might disagree.

Moody wasn't too bad a jumper either - he did take the line out in the WC just before that dropgoal

Will be interested to see if the Connacht player is cited for the hair pull, it's the fact he pulls the scum cap of and grabs a handful of hair...
would that be worthy of a red? would only be a yellow IMHO

Here's an idea. Each ref decision referred to the TMO is also referred to an instant online vote from the AMO (Armchair Match Officials). Final decision between the ref and TMO stands, but it gives the pedants something to do and they feel involved.
Ask the audience?

Re: 6 NATIONS 2021

Forget the turn over, holding on our sealing off - what the hell was the French full back doing instead of getting it off the field???

Clock red, can't win the championship, I'll just give them yet another chance

Re: Pacific Island teams for Super Rugby

Could be a nice spot for Manu. Way overdue, now all it needs is for the Top Tier 1 teams to play there, stop stealing their talent etc etc.. I believe that for the PI teams get a lot more money from playing the autumn internationals in the northern hemisphere than they would from hosting a tour for...

Re: Injury/Suspensions List

Willemse got 2 weeks?! What?????!!! Stated it was only "contact with the eye area" not either "intentional contact with the eye" or "reckless contact with the eye" and insufficient evidence to the contrary meant it only went in as a low end breach at that. So 4 weeks, down to 2 due to no previous.....

Re: Rebuilding England By The Pound

Charles Piutau played U20's for both Tonga and New Zealand. Unless they’ve changed the rules, playing for a country’s first or second level team stops you playing for another country. The Saxons were England’s (do they still exist?) but there’s been no Wales A for many years, so it’s their under 20...

Re: Gouges

It looked like Gengey was repeatedly punching with elbow/forearm/fair on the ground?? ...it’s hard to tell with the footage exactly what’s going on but it doesn’t look good 😳 ...can anyone clarify what they saw ? The video I've seen is poor quality and only 1 angle. I saw Genge reacting badly to so...

Re: 6 NATIONS 2021

That’s a bad gouge,just seen it. Massive ban coming. Did Adams ground that ball though? 🤔 Did Itoje last week? It’s debatable but what’s your angle?! I’m asking a genuine question,I only saw one take on bbc news. So I ask again,did Adams ground the ball? For me the Adams one was held up but there w...

Re: Gouges

What's with eye gouges this weekend. One by Falcons (not red carded) One by France (red carded) One against Sinkler - deemed accidental I think. And now seen on Twitter there's some alleging Sexton may have Gouged Genge? Can't remember last time eye gouging had one incident let alone 4 in one weeke...

As a neutral fan that was the game of the tournament; good attacking rugby from the outset, tense to the end, plenty of drama

Re: 6 NATIONS 2021

So an Irish player sticks a finger in Sinckler's eye and it is accidental, a marginal contact on a Welsh player is a red?? Have to agree with that, Sincklers eye clearly had contact, looked a mess!! Saw Sinckler with watering eyes and blinking a lot but not what caused it - assumed from the lack of...

Red all day long - reckless to the eye or eye area

Wales lucky after 2 yellows to not get another 2 for more penalties - did manage to wind down 3 minutes
