Re: French rugby 2019/20

The LNR (Ligue Nationale de Rugby) has just announced that there'll be no promotion and relegation in the Top14 and ProD2. Good news for Stade Français who must be breathing an amighty sigh of relief. However, sides like Colomiers and Perpignan (currently 1st and 2nd in ProD2) won't be very happy. T...

Re: 5 Greatest players by position

I'd probably have John Eales in there somewhere. Absolutely great player. Nickname was Nobody because Nobody’s perfect Colin 'Pinetree' Meads - an icon within New Zealand rugby who was named the country's Player of the Century at the NZRFU Awards in 1999. Frik du Preez, the greatest Bok lock!!

Openside flanker.

Sam Warburton.
David Pocock.
George Smith.
Michael Jones.
Lewis Moody.
Michael Jones was an outstanding player and has to one of the all-time greats.

Scrumhalves:
  • Gareth Edwards
  • Will Genia
  • George Gregan
  • Aaron Smith
  • Joost van der Westhuizen
Excellent list JP. I would probably have either Syd Going or Jon Hipwell ahead of Genia, both a lot before your time
Dawie de Villiers should be up there too along with Aussie Ken Catchpole.

Can we find a place at centre for Prince Alexander Obolensky? He was a Russian, of course, but played for England before, I think, he was granted British citizenship.
Ken (KJF) Scotland (who played for Scotland and the Lions) played 40 games at fullback for Tigers in 1961/2.

Re: Utter Rubbish - Manus Red Card v Wales

Cheap journalism.Hacks with too much time on their hands.Creating news and reports and sensationalising to get ahead of the competition. Tomorrows chip paper ( as we used to say) After panic buying has cleared the supermarket shelves of bog paper, I can think of a better use for The Independent.

Re: Favourite matches of all time

I remember that whole day so vividly - getting to teagues bar far too early, therefore having for too many Guinness. Then at the game, suffering a lot of football esque treatment from some awful (minority) Glaws fans, then winning with that drop goal and the subsequent winding down of the clock, th...
