Re: Ed Griffiths in more trouble?

Interesting that in addition to refusing a forensic inspection of this years books as an alternative to automatic relegation they were also refusing examination of historic books. The only reasonable conclusion is that there are things to hide going back many years and for that reason I don't believ...

Re: Borthwick

Borthwick was signed a while ago. Nothing to do with Saracens As I said, seems like a massive coincidence that it's announced the same week that are survival is guaranteed. I don't doubt that the contract was signed a while ago, just that there may have been a relegation get-out clause in it... I d...

Re: Saracens are relegated!

PRL should change the rules such that honors won whilst a club is knowingly in breach of capping requirements can have such honors removed retrospectively. It is an affront to the competition that their name remains on the trophy and in the official record books. Such actions happen in other sports ...

Re: Saracens are relegated!

Don't know whether this has been mentioned earlier but I believe if they top the Championship next season they have to show that they complied with the Premiership salary cap rules for the previous two seasons to gain promotion. Hence, they will not be able to bounce back up within the next couple o...

Re: Refs talk too much in English

Having thought about this again the ref should only use English and if Jonny Foreigner doesn't understand he just needs to speak more slowly and a bit louder.

Re: Refs talk too much in English

No objections to the ref telling a player where he infringed. I do object to him telling a player he is infringing and not awarding the penalty. Surely it wouldn't take long for players to get the message. I think that would sort out most of the problems around said 'breakdown' and maul in a very s...

Re: Nigel Wray Gawn

Wray should have been charged with bringing the game into disrepute and I still do not know why he was not, there has been too much brushing the dirt under the carpet, right from the cover up back in 2015. We all suspected Saracens have been cheating for years, even back when they signed up all tho...

Re: Tigers vs Bristol - 04th January 2020

Considering who is fit it looks like a good selection. Perhaps Reffell starting in lieu of Wells but it's a close call.

Looking forward to the game and in Bill's name....'Keep the Faith' :smt041 :smt041 :smt041

Re: Ben Youngs

His 'form' tends to reflect the forward platform he's working with and the reffing of the breakdown. If he can get quick ball there are few better which is the main reason for the difference between his England and Club performances.

Re: Nigel Wray Gawn

I’ve heard several people talk about the “innovations” and “everything” Wray has done for the game. At risk of starting a pythonesque romans sketch, can someone suggest what Wray has ever done for rugby? Drag the game's reputation for fair play through the mud :smt017 What I find strange is that in...

Re: All I want for Christmas

George Ford to vary the restarts so the opposition cant make the same play on every one. Referees to be consistent and all treat the same situations the same w...

Re: Exeter Chiefs 21st December

Green at 6 is all about winning the set piece which in the end is likely to dictate the result.

I'm looking forward to a good contest and in the words of the late Bill 'Keep the Faith' :smt023
