Re: Jerry Flannery - now banned for 6 weeks

As Jim Royale would (probably) say "Reckless my AR#E".

I've watched the incident a couple of times now and IMO there's intent there. 6 weeks, for that? I'll think I'll starting watching football again!

Jerry Flannery - now banned for 6 weeks

This guy is a disgrace to the game. Never have I seen such a mindless, vile and premeditated piece of foul play than his maniacal kick at the French winger in yesterdays match. Had he connected 'properly' then at least one of them would have had broken bones. The guys a thug. I don't know if he will...

Re: Bill McClaren-RIP

A sad day for rugby. I too grew up listening to that wonderful voice of his commentating on the internationals and personally, I would rather listen to a minute of some of his finest commentaries than a minutes silence (or to be followed by a minutes silence). A life to celebrate, a voice to remembe...

Re: Wasps get off after enquiry

When was the last time anyone came across a wasp on a cold wet afternoon in October (unless it was a dead one)? Joking aside, I'm with wardy on this one as much at it irks me to say so. To call Wasps "cheats" is a bit strong as their desicion not to play did not affect the outcome of the match (they...

Re: Old Tigers Crest

The old Tigers crest is NOT the same as the City Council crest although it is very similar. I don't know anything about copyright law, but I would have thought that as it isn't identical it could not be in breach of a copyright. Personaly, I like the old crest but only because I think the current on...

Re: shd txtspk b ok on frm

h's dad; I think your contention is completely wrong and I think you're missing the point. Text speak does nothing to enrich the English language, it cheapens it. I stick by my original view that it's the sign of a lazy mind.

Re: shd txtspk b ok on frm

Personaly, I would say no. English is one of the greatest and richest languages in the world with over 600,000 words; most people (me included) know/use less than one twentieth of that. Text speak is a bastardisation of our wonderful language and I for one refuse to use it. It's a sign of a lazy, fe...

Re: Hartley should be cited

I've watched this incident a few times now and whilst it is debatable that it was 'late', it certainly was a deliberate high hit. It wasn't a tackle and therefore, IMO, the intent was to cause injury - ergo foul play. Hartley isn't the only perpetrator of this type of cynical play, Rabeni and Butch ...

Sorry all you ref haters, but I think Roland has a good game granted he probably missed a few decisions that should have gone our way but all in all I think he did a good job, in fact I'd go as far as to say that he was very lenient toward England in the last quarter - he could have carded Easter bu...

Come on TigerEye, what do you expect on this forum. A certain Marcelo Loffreda took us to 2 (?) finals and the screams for his head before the guy unpacked his suitcase should give you a clue to the empathy Jonno is likely to get, even though I doubt a single one of the "off with his head" crew has ...

I think you have point Big Dai. To have our pack out-muscled by Al Baxter and co (no disrespect) was not a heartwarming sight. As for Cipriani, I have to agree with Westy 154 on this one. I have some reservations about him (although I don't agree with some of the negative comments about him made her...
