Re: The Hundred X Rugby

Just like the hundred in cricket it removes the influence and the cash from the clubs and gives it the organisers and the promoters/franchise holders. Cynical cash move will mark the end of professional club rugby’s we know it.

Re: Walking back from the abyss

It called “trying to influence officials” before the game. The constant chase for money brings the game in to disrepute let alone gobby management. Lam was completely let off for an outrage, Erasmus will probably get a medal.

Re: 100

I have watched two matches so far and found its nothing better than T20(will not watch many more) . It is a cynical cash driven attempt designed to destroy the county system. Smaller counties like Leicester and Derby will gain nothing and may collapse. As usual money talks.

Re: Has Rugby Got a Refereeing Problem?

Yes ! It is being done to “improve the spectacle” - balderdash. We have a rule book which is continually undermined by so called .”game management” at the behest of management and media not the spectators. The Southern Hemisphere have ignored “minor infringements” for years and that is changing the ...

Re: 6 NATIONS 2021

England beware! Wales have won twice by virtue of playing against 14 men. With the current rash of red cards( under new protocols many deserved) England must be on their best behaviour. My guess is Farrell will be carded for his tackles and England will lose.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE V: Borthwick Strikes Back

Are we having a clear out or are some realising Tigers are not the club they thought it was or worse than that dissention among the players. I do not know what to make of it, but will save money.

Re: Rugby players to sue for brain damage!

I have just read comments on the bbc by bill sweeney of the RFU that I find them a little unbelievable. To think the language used causes dementia is incredulous.
There is a major concern about head injuries and it must not be treated lightly.

Re: Rugby players to sue for brain damage!

I think they may have a case. Since I played and watched every week the game has changed massively. The modern game ,to me, a a hybrid between rugby league and American football without adequate HIA protocols and padding. Years ago backs were slight, highly skilled at avoiding tackles, jinking, side...

Re: Coaching Staff vs International Players

One observation. Regardless of the coaches or DOR for years we aimlessly kick away possession, usually our international halfbacks. That I believe is not to do with coaching but the players. Unlike Exeter our players do not all sing from the same hymn sheet and that is the players decision but allow...

Re: International call up chaos

Given the salary cap and England internationals are the highest paid no point in employing them to play a few club games. The press say a number of clubs are going bust, so economic sense says get rid save money.
