If true this is a killer!

Post by jgriffin » Sun Oct 04, 2015 2:30 pm

Spotted on the UnOffy, from the Quins board:

From a friend before the game yesterday:
So, it turns out Kieran Bracken’s next-door neighbour is the senior partner at a City litigation law firm called Stewarts Law. Last night they held a RWC gathering which was hosted by Bracken. As part of the proceedings—after David “rent-a-gob” Campese had spent 15 minutes railing against everything in modern rugby—Bracken got hold of the mic and did a Q&A with injured England no. 8 Billy Vunipola! who had a beer in his hand and appeared to have a couple more inside him…

Bracken: when you were interviewed after the game against Fiji you said you didn’t know you’d scored the bonus-point try—that was a strange thing to say…
Billy: not at all. None of us knew bonus points were part of this world cup. No one had told us.

[…]

Bracken: what’s Stuart Lancaster like to work with as a coach?
BillyV: I don’t know.
Bracken: what do you mean?
BillyV: Stuart doesn’t coach the team, Andy Farrell does. I’ve never been coached by Stuart.
Campo, butting in: what effect has that had on the way the team plays?
Billy: he makes us play like a rugby league team.

(Campo then goes off on one about England’s terrible style of play is and how the RFU should just bite the bullet and hire an experienced international coach. To be fair, he’s absolutely spot on with that).

[…]

Campo: so what do you think about England picking Sam Burgess?
BillyV: it’s been disruptive. The whole squad is unhappy about it.
Bracken: WHAT? Why?
BillyV: Luther Burrell earned his place in the RWC squad and Sam didn’t. Luther should have been picked, not Sam.

[…]

Bracken: and how are you enjoying playing under Chris Robshaw?
BillyV: *shrugs shoulders, sips beer, says nothing*

So, that’s OK then.


Meanwhile Jake—who seems to have got himself quite close to the England camp—is saying that Mike Catt walked out of last week’s selection meeting and vowed not to return: seem Farrell is not only coaching the team but picking it as well…

It tallys with the reports in this morning's papers.

I may be wrong, but reading other posts on this thread, I got the impression that 'Jake' was Jason Leonard.

Erm...Someone has made all of this up.

If he doesn't coach, what does SL do? All grist to the mill, the sooner they all go, the better!

I cannot believe that anyone at the RFU reading this will not want the whole lot out, unless they are minding their own backs.

Disgraceful.

Fatnorville, the national press reported the "bonus points, nobody knew" story days ago! I think it was SCW who first talked about it.

Has it occurred to anyone that fatnorville is a troll or a meatpuppet? Just joined, one post, web crawler alert to text of story?

Quote from Cueto on ESPN

"When he came in, he had some pretty strong words to say about the 2011 regime -- one that I was part of -- and our pride in wearing the shirt and so on. I still take that very personally. We won all our group games, and went out to a side who made the World Cup final -- and Martin Johnson only had 18 months or so to prepare us. His team have lost two games out of three in the pool and are out with a game to spare. If anyone deserved four more years, it was Martin Johnson, so if you're going off that logic, then Lancaster's got to go."

Must be true it is on Twitter the person who first posted it on Twitter only copied what was said on the original board.

Wasn't Mike Catt there last night anyway?
