Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

... pay them well - perhaps in the 200-250k range for a top international, half that for a first teamer? That's good money for running about a paddock, and if they retired in their early thirties they'd be well set up - although they would need to work. And that would allow us to really look after ...

Re: Duty of care

It is a pointless match that no one wants to play in and few want to watch, any player who is seriously injured in this match will feel very aggrieved, I am just glad there are no Tigers players involved. You are aware the match has now finished? Please tell me if I'm wrong but I don't think there ...

Re: Duty of care

Slightly difference - the losing semi-finalist could have been stopped - cuts/KO and be deemed unfit to fight. Rugby is a contact sport not a combat sport. Why play the Autumn internationals, friendlies in the warm ups and so on? Or play any games at all. Some good arguments are being put forward o...

Re: Duty of care

Combat sports at the Olympics award two bronzes exactly for this reason, nobody should risk their health for third place or to protect broadcasting revenues.

Re: Wales v SA

My point being that England 9's seem to get replaced after 60 minutes more often than not. Just like other positions. If you’re implying that’s a negative thing then I can tell you it isn’t. No. I was not. I was observing that de Klerk lasted for the full 80 minutes, which I believe is credit to hi...

Re: ITV coverage of WC

I think their coverage has been very good on the whole. Commentators Mullins is always excellent and Harrison is much better without Barnes chirping next to him, good selection of summarisers too though personally could do without Maggie Alphonsi. Slightly annoying thing for me, and I appreciate th...

Re: Re:

Things must be bad at the Tigers if Sam wants to leave. I don’t know how you can possibly draw that conclusion. Surely if the club was the problem he’d have just moved club? From an article in the Telegraph early last year, i was given the impression he was happy at Leicester Tigers and would end h...

Re: Canada Embarrassing?

Pretty sure Itoje was born in london to African parents, so not the best example of a Pacific Islander... He was I was using surnames as a search criteria, but I think he has Nigerian heritage anyway Japan seem to have poached about half of their starting line up as adults from other countries. Pos...

Re: Typhoon on it’s way

Yet again you miss the point, they were prepared for typhoons just not one of never before magnitude. But then again why let the facts get in the way, and to answer your other point, it is always played at this time of year to fit in with the world rugby calendar Mark I think the Prem final was on ...

Re: Canada Embarrassing?

This isn't really about Spain or Romania at the start. It's more about Tonga, Samoa and Fiji who do possess the genuine potential to compete having their talent lured away by money by the more developed nations. Then maybe England aren't so strong on the pitch and Spain and Romania can get closer. ...

Re: Canada Embarrassing?

These teams will never get better without the money being included in this will given them to invest in the game If England and Ireland played Spain and Romania on a regular basis the tier one teams would insist on getting tier one money with crumbs left over for the opposition. There is more chanc...

expand the 6 nations to 10, have 2 5 team groups playing each other once top 2 teams play in a final, that will help the likes of Russia, Georgia etc. The occasional mismatch of England v Spain in a rare random draw is one thing but to promote it as a regular occurence would be dreadful.

Re: PRC Round 3 - Bath vs Tigers

Here we go. I’ve read the law properly now. Law 14.3 clearly explains why a player who is tap tackled, can play on. 14.3 Being held means that a tackler must continue holding the ball-carrier until the ball-carrier is on the ground. https://laws.worldrugby.org/?law=14&language=EN This is where the ...
