Re: ARE THERE ANY LAWS IN THE GAME THAT YOU WOULD CHANGE?

Re: What do you want on match day?

One thing I am proud of in these times of discord and ridiculous tribalism is that the announcement of the score is done in a sensible, even understated way; and none of this hysterical, partisan, "Come on you insert home team" afterwards.

Re: Scarlets and Ospreys

Correction to my previous post - the new ground is to be at Colwyn Bay not Rhyl and is absolutely, definitely a done deal (or indupitably, certainly not) Where are they going to get the players from up there? Sale? With the collapse of four regions into three, there will be players left over. Now, ...

Re: Scarlets and Ospreys

Four Welsh regions - now to be one in the North seems to be the plan. Based at a 16,000 capacity stadium in Rhyl.

Re: Dead dead rubber v Ulster

On the other, other hand...

Re: Ellis Genge: An Inspiration

Re: Ellis Genge: An Inspiration

My grandson is at a private school. He is 9. His day starts at 08 25 and rarely finishes before16 30. Even the secondary pupils round here who go to state schools are home by 14 30/ 15 00, and after assembly, their school day does not start until 09 35.
