Re: Oceans Apart

It’s very thought provoking and in places shows the human side to it all.
Kind of makes me feel guilty for all the times I have thought “why don’t we get a Pacific Islander for this or that position”.
Well worth a watch and just the fact the level they are used.

Re: Relegation 20/21

If the future of the pro game is at stake, and the Championship is defunct, then the Cheetahs and the other rich man's plaything will end up in a 14 team league tout suite. Don't believe otherwise. Seriously?? Then I'm chucking it in. 60 years of playing and supporting, I've had enough. The game is...

Re: European finals 2020

The evidence is winners to losing finalists to losing semi finalists to not getting in the playoffs. Not positive if we didn’t qualify while still under Cockers but a gradual decline for all to see! Not gonna mention any of the shambolic drubbings under him! All teams get a spanking. There is will ...

Re: Jasper Wiese

Our back row is going to be one heavily destructive unit. Can’t wait. Some amazing recruitment. We have options which is something we haven’t had for years.
Can’t wait for next season.

Re: European finals 2020

I am a huge Cockers fan (had to make sure there was no typo there!!) and think that if he had been given a DOR and he remained head coach we would have carried on being top 4. I think as some other poster put was he is a great manager for getting a team ready for game day. Proof is in the pudding, t...

Re: Tigers vs Bristol

We need the ball to attack, which we haven’t had. Trying to think of positives but it’s a struggle. We are rock bottom which means we can only move up. Also Henry has a great spark about him, so that’s a bonus to have a second fly half who is adventurous. Can’t blame anyone, just a perfect storm fro...

Re: What a mess

I'm afraid ourla is right it is a mess. With players like Itoje excluded then the sport is devaluing itself. That's one of the points that will be raised if a handout is needed. [s ize=150]The counter argument is that to back out of relegating Sarries now would affect support elsewhere but that won...

Re: What a mess

I have a mate who is a Sarries fan and initially he was telling me it was a witch hunt and that they did nothing wrong. The fact is they cheated and to a point it was blatant. Getting Daley was just pure arrogance that said “so what” to the rest of the league. As for the players, well they were eith...

Re: European competitions

Glad sarries lost. They don’t deserve to be in the competition. They cheated to get where they are and makes a mockery that they have 3 stars.
Not earned but cheated.

Re: Team vs Saints

Our tackling at times was smashing them behind the gain line. Something we haven’t done for ages.

Hmmm - more like Saints mistakes ..... hence my conclusion it was a dross game.
Did we make them look bad too? We weren’t sparkling like the All blacks but we probably made them poor too with our play.

Re: Team vs Saints

Happy with the win and there were some positives but it was still a dross game - other than a lucky try for Lenny we really did not threaten their line all game and if Saints had taken their opportunities in the red zone the result would likely have been different. As sent by the Spartans to the Pe...
