Re: England in the 6N

LE18. It shows that Tigers have talented players, but poor coaching .

Re: France v England

LCDs foul play was missed by the officials, and not dwelt on by the TV. Should have been red.

Re: France v England

« Why was Ford taken off? » Because EJ can’t see his way past Farrell. The fact that Farrell had a dreadful game as a 10/12, and worse as a captain, makes no difference to EJ, who will stick with him through thick and thin. OK, on another day he will be a good 12, but never world class, but his inab...

Re: France v England

Care has looked a snipy sort this season, but I doubt Eddie will bring him back. Still best of the rest.

Re: France v England

Well done France. England won the last 20 minutes, Eddie lost to Shaun.

England have now lost 5 of their last 7 away since the 6N.

Re: Saracens are relegated!

If my salary was that low (comparatively speaking!),and since I am an educated man, wouldn’t you think I might be a teeny bit suspicious if I was given some extra dosh to make it up to par? I just wish my old boss had made up my salary by chipping in when I wanted to buy a house. Or that he might ha...

Ed Griffiths in more trouble?

EG worked for Middlesex Cricket Club after leaving Saracens, and is accused of acting as an unregistered players agent, against ECB rules. (Now back at Saracens).

From The Telegraph, Friday 5.17pm Saracens players have been told the club will accept a further 35-point deduction that will effectively spell relegation from the Premiership. The English and European champions were deducted 35 points and fined £5.4 million having been in breach of Premiership Rugb...

Re: What Now For Our Season?

its been proven that currently, no English side can compete in Europe without cheating the cap. Exeter have a chance to progress this year, but I suspect few imagine they can win (hope I am wrong) It’s rather more complicated than that! There is no « proof », and I have seen no proper correlation b...

Re: Refs talk too much

I’ve managed to copy the article Time to stop the talk and end rugby’s language bias stuart barnes Shaun Edwards is locking himself in a room and learning French. Enough to communicate with the 42-man squad selected for the imminent Six Nations. The new France defence coach will not need to browse F...

Re: Refs talk too much

One of the comments made by Stuart Barnes was that Carley never stopped talking. This disadvantages any player whose first language is not English. Even those who speak some English have to check their understanding, which may only take half a second, but that is long enough to give away an advantag...

Refs talk too much in English

This is an article from The Times by S Barnes commenting on Matthew Carley’s performance at the weekend, who gave a running commentary during the game in English? Would this be fair in a Wales v Italy match if the players of only one side understands the language (English)? What if Italian refs only...
