Brizz to play South Africa

Bristol Bears have arranged a fixture with South Africa. I checked the date, it's not April 1st.

On Brizz's current form it won't even be a training session for the Boks.

We need to grab Vincent Koch from the collapsed Wasps.

EJ said after the game that he is persisting with the "two ball-players" system. So Smith and Farrell both start.

Re: Country Road adopted lyrics

Singing this could be useful. As visiting teams have only ever heard our two chants they will be startled by the strange noise and look to the stands. While we nip round them and score.

Perhaps Wasps allocated cap shared among the other 12?

Re: Aus v England - 09th July 2022 - Team to save Eddies job!

Agree with the sentiments around Smith. Fabulous player but I wonder if he can control a game at test level. Obviously I'm biased but if George Ford had played in that side yesterday, with that much front-foot ball, I'm convinced that England win that game. That's not to say it's all down to Smith ...

Yes, we should have beaten 14 men, but hats off to Australia. I’d have Farrell at 10, but understand that Smith is a talent. If Smith is at 10, who plays in the centre to get this back line moving ?? I’m not sure there is anyone. Of note, Nowell was decent today, as was Ludlam and Stuart, who surpr...

Jasper Weise man of the match in the test and man of the match in the Prem final! Great credit to him and to all at Tigers who helped him over the last year.

Re: SUMMER RUGBY INTERNATIONALS 2022

Farrell seems to have forgotten who is captain and who is playing ten. Curry and Itoje bringing their club sides bad habits of childish shouting and over celebrating. Genge and Steward looking good.

If not I guess it frees up a pathway for Ilione

My main hope/ wish is that the team can absorb the loss of Genge, Ford and Moroni and still be as strong. We've lost 3 world class players there.
Agreed, but we are developing more
