Re: CONNACHT (A) - Saturday 15th January 2022 - 3-15pm

Had a look at the team who played the home leg, and really in the same ball park (forgive the pun), the difference in strength is the bench. 15 Bryce Hegarty [4], 14 Freddie Steward [42], 13 Matt Scott [32], 12 Dan Kelly [28], 11 Hosea Saumaki [4], 10 Freddie Burns [83], 9 Ben Youngs [270]; 1 Nephi ...

Re: Should The 2022 Six Nations Tournament be Played in England rather than behind Closed Doors ..?

Re: Wasps (A) - Sunday 9th January 2022 - 3pm

It’s not often Tigers are bettered in the back row, but yesterday they were second best. Chessum and Wells, outstanding players as they are, don’t have (at least I don’t think so) much experience at 8 and 6. Reffell put in a very good shift at 7, but Wiese’s bullocking presence was sorely missed. L...

Re: Wasps (A) - Sunday 9th January 2022 - 3pm

Now we have the payoffs there is a point that the winners are decided on the form at the end of the season. You could be 20 points ahead but your form in the last two games deciders who is champion. Table place gives some advantages but final game performance decides. I increasingly find myself loo...

Re: Wasps (A) - Sunday 9th January 2022 - 3pm

I'll be there tomorrow, and while the prospect of losing to the squatters next door and being there to take the stick is not a possibility I'm relishing, I remind myself that I've been present at a lot of losses in the last few years. At WR. And if I can take that, I can take a loss away. Having sai...

Re: GP OTHER GAMES WEEKEND 07 JANUARY 2022

I’m watching Quinn’s vExeter game running about 30 mins late. Decisions all going Quinn’s way, Tempest seems blind to any Quinn’s infringements. Which is why I swayed to wanting Exeter to clinch it, despite thinking they should have had a second red card. Decisions made, or not made, by the officia...

Transmission in itself isn't the biggest problem, the number of people infected with severe symptoms at any given time is.

Re: New Salary Cap Breach?

A cynical side of me wonders if the timing of the leak to the press was to coincide with the primary period of contract negotiations and renewals, I wonder if any star names we're looking at signing or renewing are now just hanging on waiting (possibly letting us add relegation escape clauses) I'd ...

Re: Newcastle (H) - Sunday 02nd January 2022 -KO 15:00

Brown had a shocker, bless him. Such a shame 😂 I would like to thank Mike Brown for playing so well for Tigers today, on his 250th Prem appearance Brown plays hard but showed some true sportmanship when one of the Tigers players was down with cramp…..he helped to try and stretch it out. Kelly, I be...

Am I the only one thinking we’re more likely to see Clare covering the back row than Dolly? Bench numbers mean little.

Re: French Rugby 2021/2022

Their contracts likely have terms relating to “players taking reasonable measures to stay available for selection”, or something along those lines. I don’t think it’d be hard to argue that vaccines are safe and thus reasonable. It'll quickly become apparent which players haven't been jabbed I'd ima...
