Watching Rugby in Rome

Morning all. I know there are a few well traveled individuals on here. Does anyone have any recommendations for a venue in Rome to watch the Eng V Baa Baas on Sunday? I am guessing the Pope won't let a few of us rock up to his pad and watch it on the portable, so a bar will have to do. Thanks in ant...

Re: Freddie's comments.

Am I the only one now bored of the current 'Freddie Burns' love-in? Probably. Nope. Me too. I don't mind so much the thanks and well wishes. He's earned it. What I'm getting fed up with is the snarling at the board over the situation. Burns was great. Sorry he's going. Ford is great. Happy he's joi...

Re: Saints in the Soup

A smart club would be approaching Picamoles' agent and suggesting that the Ayerza cap space is available if he would actually like to challenge for trophy.

He wouldn't even need to move house.

Re: Leicester Tigers 2016/17 Squad/Transfers/Contract thread

For those that haven't seen Valentino Mapapalangi, here is his YouTube highlights vid. I suggest taking this as a very loose guide, as if you watch the Opeti Fonua highlight vid then you would take him over Reid or Picamoles anyday!!! I like the look of the soft hands. https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

Ford working on his kicking?

https://twitter.com/GavinMairs/status/8 ... 7763107841

Looks like Jonny is helping George with his kicking.

Really can't wait to see Ford with Youngs, Tuilagi & Toomua. I know there are some particular Ford doom mongers on here but I for one am really excited about having him back.

Re: Mike Brown

If we are genuinely after a full back then why not go for Rob Miller at Wasps? They have Le Roux and Beale so Miller never gets a look in. Top class full back that would come much cheaper than Brown and be available all season. If Beale moves - announcement in a couple of weeks - that would change ...

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non Tigers 2016/17

Confirmed on Twitter by Rugby World: Madigan to Bristol, 3 year deal! I just cannot get my head round why anyone with international ambitions, or indeed any ambition at all, is prepared to stagnate in the second tier having taken such a step down to get there. Money is obviously the bigger factor f...

Rugby Inside Line is suggesting Bristol, Quins and Saints are competing to sign Fekitoa.

With their reputation for being totally wrong on most rumours I would take this with a pinch of salt.

Still, would love to see Fekitoa here.

Re: Times report Ford on his way to Tigers

Well the worst kept secret in rugby is finally out! It's a shame they don't honour their contracts anymore. Perhaps the start of a major shift that could evolve into a transfer market. All very unsettling either way as neither Burns or Ford have played very well since all the rumour started. Some f...
