Re: Saracens are relegated!

The whole thing is a bit unsatisfactory, in my view. They are still over the cap. They are relegated irrespective of points gained. I don't think they should be allowed to play this season any more. Chalk their results off and give teams an automatic four points. That would give fairness for all the...

The partnership will work just as long as they are all in agreement with player recruitment and selection
And is there any question that they won't be? That's as pointless a statement as saying the car will be fast, as long as someone remembers the petrol

Not impressed by Griffiths reaction to the BBC reporter.............
Indicative of the man, and the club...although stress does come out in unexpected ways :smt023
True, but given the absolute PR disaster that is Saracens, you'd think he'd be a bit more savvy

Re: Wasps v Saints

I actually think Dai has a point. Given the emphasis on player safety, if players are allowed to leap, at speed, into the air, injuries will happen, fair contest or not. I can't see any reason why the laws should stipulate that players should only catch the ball with feet, or foot, on the ground. On...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

To be fair, I think the only person who has suggested they might is Eddie Jones. Can they do that, though? I thought there would be rules in place to stop that.

Re: Borthwick

Would Murphy, as DoR, be on the panel interviewing Borthwick? Be interesting if that's the case.

The rule in your last sentence didn’t stop Mike Ford poaching George for Bath.
You say poaching, but Fordy didn't want to leave, I say poor retention negotiations and stubbornness by the board lost us Fordy to Bath!
Please don't start this one again!!!!!!

I thought that the introduction of Kalamafoni and Gigena/Leatagiga made a big difference and gave us a lot more go forward.
And Harrison too, and Hardwick. Makes you wonder why they didn't start. White was very tentative around the ruck

Re: Wales v SA

Interesting how so many people rate Faf de Klerk so highly and as one of the worlds best even though he takes a few steps before passing and kicks loads yet when Youngs does it, he is apparently too slow and kicks too much. Was thinking the same his box kicking has been average at best. Great line ...

Re: Wales v SA

Brutal and attritional, but the quality of the passing not on par with England or the All Blacks. Not much ambition from either side. If England can keep their game up to yesterday's standard they should win.

Re: ITV coverage of WC

I'm fine with the live coverage, it's very good. Just a bit surprised there's no prime time coverage or previews to get more interest from non rugby people. I'm sure there was a bit more hype in 2003. We're in the final, for heavens sake, and loads of people arn't aware of it.
