Re: Non-England World cup thread 2019

Ireland so boring. Tbf I think their playing what’s required following the red card. The Irish look like they’re starting to click, New Zealand will not look forward to facing them in the quarters if that happens The result was never in doubt but they persisted in keeping the ball with the forwards...

Re: England v France

As both sides have already qualified, will they be at their strongest or will key players be rested? My initial thoughts are that Billy Vunipola had an anonymous match on Saturday and I hope he will be replaced by Wilson. Singleton needs game time so I’d have him in the starting XV as should Genge....

Re: George Ford

I think our main competitor once again will be Sale we attempt to re-sign him. I obviously hope we keep him, and do the necessary to do so. He appears settled here, and though he is a northern lad, I believe his fiancée heralds from Bath, so you don’t know Isn't he on about 450k at Tigers? Take a l...

Re: French rugby 2019/20

True! Take a look at the top three teams in the table. Who’d have thought that we’d be seeing the likes of Lyon, Bordeaux and Bayonne? Not me, for sure! And equally, Toulouse and Stade Français making up the bottom two !

Results and table from this weekend's matches: Clermont 20-13 Montpellier Agen 27-29 Bayonne (excellent start to the season for unfancied Bayonne) Brive 23-9 Toulouse (I'm beginning to doubt if Toulouse can recover from this disastrous start to their season) Castres 46-16 SFrançais (SF now 4 points ...

Re: Is Lavanini going to be a liability?

Re: England v France

In my opinion, Eddie Jones should not select his team in accordance with his preferred opposition in the QFs. The England team has already qualified and the opportunity should be taken to give valuable game time to the other players who may well be called upon to play in the semi-final due to injuri...

Lavanini is apparently a very good gymnast who specialises in floor exercises/ tumbling.

He's always been well known for some assaults.

[I'll get my coat...]
No I saw his last gymnastics competition and it was the pummel horse he excelled at 😂

Sorry that was bad I know
Oui, vraiment!
