Re: Gallagher Premiership this weekend

Refereeing was at best inconsistent although more likely questionable at times. The whole high tackle thing needs a close looking at. I think a second TMO just to look at anything like that whilst game carries on would stop a lot of the ref blowing when he shouldn't have. :smt017

Re: Ed Griffiths in more trouble?

The more that emerges about these characters it becomes even clearer why there is little to zero sympathy for Saracens and they remain, probably, the most detested club in English rugby.

Re: Finn Russell

Saw a great meme this morning - Sources close to the matter reveal that Finn Russell was disciplined for multiple offences in breach of Scottish team protocol: 1. Breaking the gain line 2. Running at pace 3. Making first up tackles; and 4. Bringing a winning mentality To be confirmed! Many a true w...

Finn Russell

He has, apparently, left the Scotland camp for undisclosed reasons and is likley to miss the entire 6 Nations!

Re: Saracens are relegated!

So it wasn’t £2.4m on itoje - I heard it wrong - it was actually that they overpaid in value - with a secondary firm saying the ‘purchase’ was only worth half of what they actually paid. (Worth 800k, paid £1.6m - but still that’s £1.6m outside of cap!) Press this morning reporting the report says t...

Re: Borthwick

I cannot believe the continued negativity on here, we have made an appointment, adjusted the hierarchy and have a plan going forward. GM stepped up and did his best with an inferior squad. This season we recruited fairly well and without the interference of the world cup allowing a "normal" preseas...

Re: Last nights development match

As usual Worcesters' Twitter feed was on the money throughout the game. They were breathing a sigh of relief at half time to be in front. Second half we had them under a lot of pressure to gain a decent lead. just as well as in the dying seconds we conceded a penalty try and had two binned! So Tiger...

Re: Saracens are relegated!

Genuine question, but has it been confirmed anywhere that a promoted club has to have complied with the cap for two years prior to promotion? The rules state that they have to submit their declaration for the year of promotion and the certification for the previous year, yes. But both these are jus...

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 ...

Would be great for him to arrive ASAP but I read this to be at the end of the season, which traditionally used to be the end of April but has now crept into June :smt017 As other posters have said the lack of urgency has now disappeared, to a degree, but it could be down to the work that Deacon and...

So looks like he might not be joining at all this season.....
OK, so what constitutes the end of Englands season? Post 6 Nations?
