Re: 21/22 Injury/Suspension Thread

Isn’t that Wednesday’s announcement of Tuesday’s hearings, not those held yesterday?

Really struggling to think of a better European away win,anyone please help?
Munster away was monumental ! 2007.
Paris?
Have we already forgotten last December’s win in Bordeaux, top in the French league & our side consisting of seemingly callow youths?

Re: 6 Nations 2022

Still not convinced by Smith. It looks pretty and that it should be threatening but the best defenders can work him out. He doesn’t unlock defences in the way George can and doesn’t read and control the game either. He’s young and skilful and learning, but it remains a big gamble that he’ll actually...

Re: Gloucester (Home) - Saturday 26th February 2022 - KO 3-00pm

Thought the scrum changed when Atkinson was down injured. Wells talking to SB on the sidelines followed by a forwards huddle. After that we regained some control and for sure Balmain going off helped. Thought Wells put in a huge shift btw. We certainly improved after half time and had a more impactf...

Re: 6 Nations 2022

Sure RugbyGramps but the issue in question was that since LCD was there providing cover wasn’t it impossible to say that a try would probably have been scored (which is a necessary condition for a penalty try). It was suggested that since in the opinion of the officials LCD engaged in foul play he c...

Re: Tonga appeal

There’s an update on Hosea’s gofundme page (no apology for repeating the link here https://gofund.me/cf0b19b0). With the money raised so far he hopes to fund restore 7 seaside villages and is arranging to send the money via his brother in Tonga. Not too late to donate!

Re: Leicester v Bordeaux (H) - 22nd January 2022 - 15:15

By default? Hardly. You can only beat the team in front of you and there still are 5 games (four rounds) before we’ve had a chance to best the remaining 15 other teams. Who will be missing because of Covid? Well perhaps Toulouse but isn’t it also down to their earlier performances eg at Wasps making...

I’m sure SB thinks Dolly and Kini can do a worthwhile job there! Haven’t they proved him right?

Re: Leicester v Bordeaux (H) - 22nd January 2022 - 15:15

Agree with resting Wells And Reffell. Keep Burns in. He needs game time - but give him some time working on his kicking for goal - at his best those misses today were all well within his capabilities- he can get that back. His control of the game was pretty good today which hasn’t always been the ca...

Re: Wise Hearing

Shows they’d planned well for the various possibilities at scrum time. Excellent planning.

And was it van Wyk as water carrier yesterday? Seemed to be discussing the intricacies of the scrum with other members of the front row union…

I hear the French have started to step down some of their internal restrictions and the ban on traffic getting to the Channel tunnel didn’t last long. The ski industry not happy at an effective ban on British visitors. Macron not averse to playing politics with such things in an election year so who...

Re: Newcastle (H) - Sunday 02nd January 2022 -KO 15:00

I thought it was Porter who packed down at Blindside in the very last scrum on the left after the shoulda-bin-a-lineout/knock-on, before scoring on the right wing…. Ah yeah, you might be right. Porters a bit stockier than Moroni so makes sense. I noticed because one of the nuances of that final fra...
