Re: 6 NATIONS 2021

That's a good point but see cricketers A lot of them have said how difficult it is though...the flip side if that is imagine being stuck in a bubble with Marler, Genge & Sinckler for 8 weeks... Yeah that's true,imagine if Haskell was still in the squad 😜 On good lord, I think there would be a sizab...

Re: Ealing beat Saracens

Player welfare seems a long way down the list for elite players with. Regular season, then play-offs, European competition, 6 Nations, Summer tour, Autumn Internationals and, every two years, either a World Cup or a Lions tour. Fifty week a year job nowadays So maybe expansion of the league to 14 o...

Re: Gallagher Premiership Round 6

I guess by that, that Sinckler has never done a similar tackle when defending a rolling maul inside his own 5 mtrs? :smt018 :smt017 I've seen him do the same when defending pick and go on his own line. It seems to be generally accepted when done in that situation. As LittleBig says, the rules need ...

Re: Gallagher Premiership Round 6

Tackling a players knees is highly dangerous and potentially career ending and should be penalised with a red card When i was taught to play the game as an 11 year old some 50 years ago one of the maxims driven into us was "he can't run without legs!". Tackling a player around the knees was the nor...

Perhaps, when crowds are allowed back, we can help the referee by giving a very loud count-down to encourage the laggards.

Re: Gallagher Premiership Round 6

Rugby is being refereed on outcome. If Sincker's knees get done and he is carried off with his career in tatters then we'd be talking about the tackle instead of Sinckler's frustration. This is a great point that needs sorting, the obvious answer is to tell the refs to start hitting the cards harde...

Re: 3rd January 2021 v Bath

You are over thinking it I reckon. Comparing results season to season, match to match, is tricky and even more so under current circumstances. But even then it seems to me things are improving. But the real story is what you can see and hear from the camp and in matches. Good counter points, and I ...

Re: Harry Wells' Score vs Bath up for Try of the Week.

The kick and gather by Steward was ridiculously good,Biggaresque! Edit: Did he kick it? No he didn't. Iirc Spencer (?) Kicked to us, Steward caught it and passed it in field to Ford, who kicked it for Steward to chase, he gathered the kick superbly and was tackled, Ben Youngs took the ball from the...

Re: Non playing staff interfering with play

And if a fan touches it, it must have gone into the crowd anyway, so a quick throw would not be possible The ball boy that was the cause of all this was behind an advertising hording, so it must have "gone into the crowd" so to speak, so a quick throw was not possible. I think, from footage on Twit...

Re: Non playing staff interfering with play

We accept the subs being allowed to go pitch side to keep warm, fair enough. Physio/Dr may enter to attend injured players. Ball boys to retrieve the ball (or hand another to the player immediately on request.) Water carriers should be like the crowd- well behind the fences until summoned on by the...

IDK the feel ford road factor too me has been a hindrance of late. One of those great when winning not so much losing. Do you mean the crowd turning on the team or more the crowd going AWOL half way through the game? (From the games I've been to the latter is something that I've seen in game, the f...
