DW-S may have been born in NZ, but that doesn't make him a Kiwi. Anymore than Simon Shaw is Kenyan.

DW-S's dad is from Cornwall, and Dan himself has been living in england since his family came home, when he was about 3 years old.

Everyone seems to have forgotten how bans jonno picked up from the RFU that mysteriously expired before days before the six nations started. The RFU set the precident years ago, Ah.. would you be referring to the time when Johnson hit Marshall in a match but wasn’t cited by the IRB commissioner, bu...

Strettle's good and very quick, but the favourite youngster of the Quins fans is the dynamic young inside centre, Jordan Turner-Hall. He's started 5 times for Quins this season, and won them all. In fact, last week was Quins' first win of the season without him playing! Not all to do with him, of co...

Several points - 1. Dave Seymour is a specialist openside. Pat Howard claimed that he released Skinner as he could only play at 7 whereas Jennings, Abraham and Moody could all play 6 and 7, giving them more flexibility and alternatives. I suspect if PH is involved in the hunt, then you're looking at...

For anyone who is critcal of the return of the 'old guard' and frothing at the failure to include any youngsters, how about actually looking at the squads? Geraghty (20), Lund (23), Rees (22), Flood (21) and Tait (20) are in the 'senior' squad, and they are hardly Dad's Army... Also there is room in...

Jennings seems a likely departure. He comes from Leinster, but couldn't get into the side past Gleeson. Gleeson, however, is now reaching the end of the road whilst Jennings has been bang in form. He would have to consider that moving back home now he'd have more opportunity to cement a place in the...

I've not read the last page and a half because I was getting the gist of it. Guys... calm down. There are some things to remember; 1. 15 changes to the XV that demolished Bristol - not because of arrogance,but because a top flight rugby match takes, on average, 4.5 days to recover from. Teams who pu...

The scoring 4 tries and losing by less than 7 thing has always bugged. It happens a lot in S14 rugby. For a while, it used to happen weekly that at least one team would score 4 tries and lose. In fact, the whole try bonus thing annoys me. It was brought in by the SH to make S12 more exciting, but ve...

A good result, and with Gloucester not playing the Tigers go top ahead of Bristol. There's now a bit of a gap between Glaws in 3rd and tonights losers, Wasps and Sale, in 4th and 5th. This scheduling is hard on Bristol, though. They have a small squad and didn't even bother turning up for this. And ...
