Fair enough, his comical obsession of Alun Wyn Jones undermines him somewhat in my view. He also doesn't like Tigers at all.
That and his similar distain for England do play a part, but it's more than just those...

The point I'm making is that we can't beat a bang average team
But we did....
Saints are sub-average, or at least played that way yesterday. They've been pretty poor all the way through restart rugby, their table position is down to a productive start to the season last year and early this...

Re: Team vs Saints

Pure speculation Not really, its a reasonably well established stat that a team serving a yellow card will, on average, have 7 points scored against them. I don't think stats apply to thing that never happened. You're right though, if we were playing Exeter we would have probably lost the match. Bu...

I thought it was "Nandolo"....that would fit as the media are calling Radrada "Randranda".

Re: Tigers vs Castres - 20 Sep 20 at 1500

Castres are normally defensively sound (Joe Worsley is defence coach) but are prone to concede penalties under pressure. Borthwick and his team will have studied Castres and will hopefully have a cunning plan! Steve Baldrick? Bravo, JP! the first to spot it! Shame Bath got rid of Todd Blackadder, B...

Re: Remaining fixtures

There are four teams with a chance of joining Exeter in the play-offs, I wonder who’ll miss out? I wouldn’t shed many tears if it were to be Bristol. Thoughts? As much as I dislike squiderugby he's right that the world doesn't feel right with Sale above 6th... This is a bit off-piste but why don't ...

Re: Team vs Saints

Oh for crying out loud. Some people... be fair we extended our lead when down to 13 men, a decent team would have put at least 1 try on us then, but you can only play the side in front of you Pure speculation Not really, its a reasonably well established stat that a team serving a yellow card will,...

Re: The Nadolos

Can anyone tell me if his name has the accent on the first syllable or the second? I thought it was the first but then today on BT Sport they pronounced it Nan-DO- lo. Which is correct? Incidentally he is already an icon IMO. Must admit this is confusing me too; also where are the commentators gett...

Re: A new defence coach?

Still thinking we need a defence coach after today? Perhaps that comment of Ellis's about not executing the plan was spot on? Haven't argued for the need for a new defence coach, let's see if Ford Sr can do the jobs he's best at, but the slow motion try for their replacement front row looked like i...

How many penalties does Taufua give away at the breakdown......
