Re: Marler - World Rugby step in

Marler to face hearing. http://www.bbc.com/sport/rugby-union/35887510 So, Marler says something, then apologises. Lee accepts the apology (it's just banter, no worries)but the WRU deem it appropriate to ignore the feelings of grown men, and investigate further. There is nothing to investigate - what...

Re: Job Marler racially abusing a Welsh player? No Sanction

Who remembers the old Welsh coach Gareth Jenkins (whose record with the Welsh XV was not the best) being called 'gypo' by disgruntled Welsh supporters? Surely a case of the pot calling the kettle black, eh? You don't seem to have grasped the real point in all of this. It's only the English who can ...

Re: Marler - World Rugby step in

Oh dear. I wouldn't mind if the Welsh were whiter than white. I've suffered enough English "so and so" comments from their supporters in recent years, so and so being used to replace any swearword you can think of. Yes, isn't it funny how offensive and discriminatory language only ever seems to ema...

The fact that he has felt it necessary to apologise for telling the truth is probably the most disappointing and upsetting thing I will hear today. A tragedy. :smt022 :smt022 :smt022

Excuses for parking illegally

A woman eventually confessed that, when using her dead grandmother's disabled parking permit, she (the Grandmother) was not actually shopping. Brilliant though, was that she was; (ready for it!)








Using it in her Grandmother's memory!! :smt044 :smt044 :smt044

Re: Behaviour at Welford Road.

Stewards do not want to confront and deal with louts. That is the problem. It may be. Do you have first hand evidence to support it? If you do, then the solution is to have a "snatch squad" of stewards (specially trained) who go it and evict the offender(s). Evidence? Come on. A poster reported on ...

Re: Saturday fixture - what a joke

Leaving aside the question of whether matches are played on a Saturday or not, we at least know when they are being played. Of all the 8 home matches between now until the end of the regular season, we know the date/time of 7 of them. Looking at the French Top 14 Montpellier fixtures (nearest to me)...
