Re: PREMIERSHIP ROUND 6

Just how good are Saracens? So, they beat an under-powered Wasps and a rudderless Wuss, a Bath side that everyone has beaten, closer with Newcastle and lost to us. Not as good as they think

https://forum.viewfromthe22.com/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=2629&sid=01ee681fced7acf24ca72598af7cbe1b There’s a link on the Sale fans forum to a Russian site that apparently streams the game without a vpn or sign up it would appear.

It does show how poor Worcester are though! Will make for an inter...

Re: Player welfare and performance

For example, this is Gavin Hastings on his time as a Lion (full piece on BBC website): "Rugby is in the grip of a concussion crisis but, 32 years ago, there were no pitch-side head injury assessments, no temporary replacements, and certainly no high-definition replays. "Just before half-time, Nick F...

Re: Player welfare and performance

I read a version of this story elsewhere; interesting. What fascinated me was the research done on amateur era players in tandem with this showing that their brain functions were rarely impaired until they were over 75. This from the days when punch-ups were real, not just shoving each other.

Masks compulsory here in N Wales and there is no rioting in the street. Apologies for bending the thread.

It will be interesting to see how we cope with Sale's style of aggressive defence.

Lee Blackett says the judgement is "making a mountain out of a molehill" and "I haven't found anyone in the professional game having an issue with... water boys"

I like your thinking Steve, but IBWT.

Water carriers must remain in the technical area at all other times. (b) The two water carriers are not perm...

Re: Rugby tonight

You really don’t get it. I’ll bite and argue your point. Whatever Mandela may have done, it doesn’t/didn’t directly affect you. Using religious/cultural symbolism does affect people whose culture that is. Using a represention of a cross, for example, would clearly be offensive. It appears that here...

Re: Rugby tonight

" If in the unlikely event Worcester Warriors asked their supporters to black up and come as Zulu Warriors would I call that racist?"

Not necessarily. It's just some people dressing up as some other people. A bit like the bloke at any wedding who wears a kilt when he's actually from Walsall.
