Re: England v Ireland

I think there is always an expectation on the home team to perform. The away team often isn't as pumped and gets more of an opportunity to experiment in these warm ups. England have a very strong squad that will compete well with anyone but for them it's how to unlock those tight defence's with the ...

Re: England v Ireland

Good shift from the Tigers boys, especially Manu, great turnover just now and beast ball in hand. All except Youngs, passing hasn’t been to the man, kicking too far. Do like Cokanasiga, but isn’t very dynamic at this level. For me Nowell or Watson on the right wing. England have picked Ireland apar...

Re: England v Ireland

I think a lot of people have forgotten that Ben has barely played since early April. Tough to play at that tempo as well, puts a lot of pressure in the 9s passing game. England's forwards left him a little exposed at times, again if you're going to play at that high a tempo. Hopefully with a bit mo...

Re: Jasme Haskell

Do we think that he'll really do it or is it media exposure to get on strictly!

Re: Wales 1st in the World?

Well there is now :smt001 https://www.rugbypass.com/news/world-rugby-announces-immediate-law-change-brought-on-due-to-wales-v-england-match/ Does this mean the ref in the Wales V England match last weekend was well within his rights to play on quickly? There are already too many long breaks in play...

:smt005
He didn't see a padded rugby post in his prime so I've no idea how he is going to see those kicks and punches coming, but good luck to him!

Re: Food for thought for the keyboard warriors?

30 years ago the game was amateur. Players now get paid as it’s their job and like all jobs, there’s things you have to do as part of it. Part of being a pro rugby player is making sure you eat the right food and keeping yourself fit for 365 days of the year. 30 years ago the game was amateur which...

Re: Food for thought for the keyboard warriors?

Everything is relevant to the pressure that players might suffer. Add it all up and it's a potential cocktail for mental health issues. Even though it was hard in different ways when I think back about thirty years ago only half the amount of matches were played and players were lighter which equat...

Re: Food for thought for the keyboard warriors?

I don’t know how many calories I have a day, how many I “should” have a day and what foods are the “right” things to eat. I eat what I like when I like but if I was a teenager again and had my time in the academy again, if I was given a strict diet to follow, I’d follow it. After all, you have to m...

Re: Food for thought for the keyboard warriors?

I can't imagine what it's like to actually be in the thick of it now. The game is near unrecognisable to me when I think back. I recall my 15 year old being told that he needed to eat 5000 calories a day by a representitive coach. Yes I did react! The pressure from those in responsible positions is...
