Re: Brendan Venter

The problem is he sees himself as the Jose Morinho of Rugby Union.

If this article in the Independent is true he can pack his bags now as far as I'm concerned.

We don't need his behaviour in Rugby Union otherwise we'll end up with football type behaviour on the terraces....and who wants that?

Re: Have Wasps caught Glaws disease?

I can't believe the Insects didn't try to get the game postponed!! Wasps could never win on a pitch in that condition!!
The ERC rules must be different to the RFU rules on playable pitch conditions.....

Dare I say it......it wouldn't happen in wendyball!! The only good news appears to be that in this years 6N the Internationals are taking a weeken...

Re: On-line commentary Leeds v Leiceter

Leicester head coach Richard Cockerill: "The pitch was as bad as I've seen in a decade. You could put your boot in four, five or even six foot in some areas, the mud was that deep. "It's probably something that needs looking at. If you want to play top end sport you have to have surfaces better tha...

Re: Tigers v Bath LV Cup

Makes a mockery of the bonus point system when you can play like that and get a bonus point win!!

Re: Sixteen men on pitch

Now that everyone here knows the rule about a Penalty being the punishment does anyone know where it should have been taken from? Where the 4th official stands (half way line), where the player entered the field of play, maybe where he first got involved in play or where the game restarts after the...

Re: Sixteen men on pitch

Actually, I see more of the fault lying with the referees. What was the 4th official doing letting the player go on the pitch without somebody coming off and of course we should have had a penalty awarded when 16 men were discovered. I suggest both referees should be penalised and Lewis should be s...

Re: Sixteen men on pitch

ERC have already stated that the result cannot be changed.
As has happended a number of times this season I suspect the Ref (Alan Lewis) will be reprimanded for inadequate control of the game and not being fully aware of the rules.

It's old technology but good luck to him if he can sell them. Fishermen have been using smaller versions as handwarmers for years. I carry 2 to most games but unfortunately most of my mates come unprepared,look sorry, do a bit of grovelling and borrow them. The handwarmers are about £3/pair at place...

Re: Attoub hearing - Updated: Banned for 70 weeks

Now that's what you call a deterrent.

I wonder if they've gone for 70 weeks so that he misses the rest of this HC and all of next years HC because they know that CNOSF will allow him to continue playing in the Top 14?
