Re: 4 weeks for Manu 10 for Marler

All seems harsh to me, just play on. The punch from the French lad apart which as it was instigated by some scowling collar grabbing mischief-maker probably warrants two weeks. Ten weeks just for a bit of fun. I never thought I'd see Alun Whinge-Jones joining the Me-toos. He's been compared to John...

Re: Tigers vs Worcester

We had plenty last season too. Actually I thought the ref last week better than many we have had. He was right about the Worth knock on that cancelled Veainu's try and in the case of Olowofela's " second" he was correct to check and I can see why he gave an on field decision of no try, the pictures...

Re: Change of Tune

Benny hill theme tune seems more appropriate just now. :smt005 (not a serious post, for the pedants). I'm with the Benny Hill thing. It could also replace the warm up. They could also come out in Morris dancing kit and beat the bejesus out of opposition players with their sticks as they went past. ...

Re: It just gets worse for Saracens

i'm sure the process of renewing a work permit isn't a 5 minute job so just cant believe that it wasn't known well before the day that the work permit was going to expire, to call it an "administrative oversight" is really stretching it. If I was in charge at any of the clubs in Saracens pool and Gl...

Re: England in the 6N

I've long been an advocate of the 6 nations being played over 5 consecutive weekends. It would serve as good practice for the world cup. The squads should be fixed in the same way as a world cup squad is. Along side this there should be no premiership fixtures during this period. Premiership players...

Re: TV coverage affects results

If 2 players are competing for the ball at a lineout then hands will clash. Lavanini did not pull on the arm just bumped hands with the other jumper. This should have been a "rugby incident". The more worrying thing was how the ref penalised in at the side at one breakdown then ignored it at all bre...

Re: All I want for Christmas

..... Is people to realise that we need stability and a long term plan. Yet another change of head coach would cause chaos for the players. George Ford to vary the restarts so the opposition cant make the same play on every one. Referees to be consistent and all treat the same situations the same way.

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

here's a suggestion rather than a peanuts to Wray £5m fine would it not have been better to restrict Saracens cap by £2m for each of the next 3 seasons to reflect 3 seasons of known breaches and if they can be shown to be breaching the cap this season then the restriction should apply for the follow...

would either of them take a cut so that the youngsters would get higher salaries? in any business you earn more for longer service and experience

Re: Typhoon on it’s way

what is ridiculous is the lack of contingency planning. every match should have been able to be moved forward or back 1 day to ensure it was played. if the scotland v japan game is cancelled then it will be the worst decision world rugby has ever made.
