Re: Aviva Premiership: something exciting happens

Rumours abound that Wasps are going to declare a Company Voluntary Arrangement with their creditors for the £35m debt they got into to buy the Coventry Building Society Arena (previously the Ricoh)

Re: Eddie Jones blames public schools for building 'compliant' rugby players

Eddie Jones has his own beef with public schools and the stereotypical output from them based on how he was treated in his playing days in Australia. What he says on this has to take that into account.

Re: Friday's rant

Clare Daly and Mick Wallace – a pair of Quisling f*cks. Two stooges for Putin who are a disgrace to Ireland. Clare Daly crowing about the Amnesty International report criticising Ukraine for daring to defend their cities by placing soldiers in the cities instead of lining up in the countryside in l...

Re: Steve Thompson not very well at all

SRU and WR are having legal action taken against them on this case: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/62372097

I predict that the SRU will come out at a significant loss on this, WR less so as at least they have recommendations and processes which the SRU clearly didn't follow.

He also said he hid them, so there's some excuse, but the environment and staff should have been looking out for them.

Re: Tour to NZ 2022

Going back to the Plan A Plan B discussion - SquidgeRugby makes a point in his most recent video that the tactic that NZ made so well in the first test to pull us apart (Aaron Smith running backline plays from 9) was worked out and counteracted in a week by Ireland. He also makes the point that our ...

Only real complaint is the lack of sizes for retired props. And a fabric supporters version.

Re: Tour to NZ 2022

Mad we've gone from never beating NZ ever to beating them, to beating them in their own back yard, to winning an away test series against them. Huge.

Re: RFU reviewing “Swing Low”

So a constituent part voting to leave a larger union (UK leaving the eu) is a fine example of democracy. But a constituent part wanting to vote to leave a larger union (Scotland leaving the UK) is not? Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk They already voted on that though? It’s a funny one though, ...

Re: RFU reviewing “Swing Low”

I'm a bit English, born in Leicester, with Welsh, Scots and Viking ancestors who voted to stay in the EU, campaigned against us joining in the first place(I was active in politics back then) but am quite happy we have left, even though I knew it would be a disaster for a lot of folk.

Especially if rights are sold en masse with no real regard for whether they get shown or not.
Yep, UK would be Premier Sports for URC, BT Sports for CC, Amazon Prime for Autumn internationals and Sky Sports for Summer Tests.

Not a great angle for a kick, and the MAB missed one from around here in the first half

We'll take it, but would prefer the officiating was a bit better.
He's really not, if he was riding them he'd have given us a PT in the first half with the yellow.
