Re: Blake Enever

Didn't ring many bells with me either but he looks a big solid lad, and we do need some extra second row grunt. I was more interested in Harry Potter, and I hate to say this, but perhaps he could bring some magic to our backs.

Re: Murphy coaches and relegation

The steady decline has been going on since Cockers left. I am not one for constantly changing coaches but I am afraid the time has come. This afternoons performance was an embarrassment. With the exception of the scrum which was adequate but no better then that everything else was pathetic with chil...

Use it from Nigel Owens

Well dear old Nigel covered the England France game yesterday and in doing so set a record for reffing the most six nations matches. Congratulations to him. During the game I noted that rather then calling "use it" to players at the base of scrums etc, he started to just shout "use". Now that was al...

Johnson drug ban

I read in the press that the Wasps forward Johnson has had his six month drugs ban for taking an illegal diet supplement back dated to the date of his test in February. He played for Wasps four times following the test that resulted in the ban, and then normally would have served the remainder of hi...

Re: Use of TV referrals

There were issues in the England Australia match on Saturday as well which were ludicrous and went on forever particularly with the Elliot Daly try. The touch judge was really well placed to assess the question of whether the ball went in touch from the clearance kick, and waved play on. The referee...

Re: Manu sent home

If the BBC are right and he has gone out on the lash when he is only there for a few nights anyway then he wants his derriere kicking all the way back to Leicester. What is wrong with him. He is not a kid anymore. People in and around Tigers have put mountains of effort into him getting him back to ...

Re: Scrum half feeding!

This part of the game is now at something of an hiatus. There is the problem of feeding, and the problem of completed scrums, or scrums being reset time and again. We now even see the situation where once the ball has been secured in the scrum the front rows are going down and the referees are allow...

Re: Mike Brown

I have a concern with the signing of a well known player like Mike Brown, not on a personal basis but that yet again he would be taking a position from a home grown young talent. We don't see enough players coming through from our academy. Worth has stepped into the breach on a number of occasions t...

Re: England vs Italy

I was not impressed with Italy's tactics yesterday, nor was I with England's response in the first half. The entire team seemed to be unable to come up with a plan between them to defeat the Italian game plan. They were flustered and not concentrating hence the try from the rebound off the post. I h...

Re: Will Eddie Jones stick or twist?

I too would like to see a couple of changes for this game, Teo in, Daly at full back allowing us to play two full on attacking wingers. There is one problem though. The players have now had a two week break since Wales, and have another week off before the Scotland game I believe. For those who play...

Re: George North stood down from playing

Before I post this comment I must make it clear that I am a naturally suspicious old sod. With the recent incidents involving Elliot Daly, and the Argentine player in the same match, it seems to have become obvious that in incidents where a player is tackled in the air, no matter what the nature of ...

Re: Matt Toomua - anyone heard any news yet?

It is without doubt that we are jinxed. JDV was here last season and I don't even think he played a full game did he. I remember him playing away at Quins but don't think he finished the game. All we saw of him other than that was him sitting in the stand joking with the other walking wounded. Now t...

Re: London Welsh

I am afraid that what may happen to LW almost happened to Rotherham after their brief second visit to the premiership. Both were clubs whose grounds didn't meet requirements, promoted late, and had to spend large sums of money on players who overall were not really up to premiership standards. The c...

Re: Ticket pricing

I have had my gripe about this before, but I feel it is worth commenting again. Myself and my son are ardent fans, and were season ticket holders when he was younger. Now he works, and often at weekends. Our position now is that we sometimes don't know with any certainty whether we can make a game o...

Re: salary cap cheats

It is without doubt that whatever happened, and surely something did, damages the reputation of PLR, and by reflection, all of the clubs who are members of that organisation. It causes concern to everybody when the clubs vote by a majority either not to pursue the enquiry, or not to publicise the ou...
