Re: The Play Offs...

Seems like sacking Gustard was the correct decision

Calling someone a cheat and stating that someone isn't strong enough to make tough decisions are completely different!
I agree, and I think Youngs shouldn't get as long a ban (plus the better disciplinary record).

But both cases are claiming the ref chose not to make correct decision.

Re: Tom Youngs Charged

Youngs should expect a decent ban. Its not far off being as bad as the Hartley incident with Barnes. He swore at the red and effectively questioned his integrity. There is a difference, Barnes objected more to being labelled a cheat rather than Hartley's use of the expletive. Youngs' accusations we...

Re: Captain for 2021/22 Season

Might be an old-fashioned view but I don't think 10s make good captains.

They need to be exceptional to manage the game, place kicking (normally), deal with the ref, and make the decision that they need to hand over kicking duties when they are having a mediocre day.

Re: BRISTOL (H) - 5th June 2021

Shocking officiating at the end, but arguably we lost due to the inability to score in the first half. I believe Lam that the original substitution of Afoa was marked up incorrectly, after that it was all a pack of rubbish, the non return of Kerr should also be looked at, but its PRL so zero confid...

Re: Championship rugby

Past history has absolutely no relevance to the situation. It seems dodgy that the committee has taken the stance that Hartpury were not at fault for the cancellation. Maybe someone can dig out the competition rules but every other league award points to the team that wasn't involved in the cancella...

For me I’d still want more experience in the test XV, regardless of whether the opposition might be a step down to who we normally play against.

Re: Who’s your pick for Lions 2021

True. But he's hasn't been in great form for us until recently. And showed little in the six nations as in impact sub. I still think his name not being on the list isn't a surprise.

Re: Who’s your pick for Lions 2021

Genge and Sinckler’s omissions are the puzzlers. How many times does Macko have to get demolished in the scrum before international coaches spot it. Jamie George like many of the Sarries players looked out of touch in the 6N. Sinckler has found his form, and Genge is back to form having wasted too ...

Re: Who’s your pick for Lions 2021

Wish the Irish pundits would stop moaning about Sexton and Ryan. It’s not a slight against Ireland, better players were picked ahead of them. Can’t remember England going mad about Robshaw, Hartley etc You have to remember that they both play for Leinster which dominates almost all the media focus ...

Re: Who’s your pick for Lions 2021

Anyone else think this just highlights how poor NH rugby is these days? England had an uninspired autumn and a dire six nations. Wales were terrible since the World Cup, and even though they won the six nations some of their games weren't great. Ireland haven't been at the races since 2017 Scotland ...

Re: Who’s your pick for Lions 2021

"Gatlands'" first choice 8 are better, it's the rest that are iffy....the 2 "injured" Scots hookers would be a better bet in the not going 23. Without knowing who said not interested, apart from Youngs its difficult to judge some of the selections, well apart from Daly & Maku they are just cuckoo. ...

I always thought we'd have won that if Toby Flood hadn't been injured.
We lost that game when Crane went off injured. We had a 10 point lead but let them get back into it as he was our go to player to carry us out of trouble. He was arguably never the same player after that season.
