Too early? Pre-season matches are only a week away
Lions hangover cleared, season ticket bought, hopes of a decent year for your club returning, possibly the last Heineken Cup. The new rugby season is nearly upon us.
Predictions for Rabo, Premiership, Heineken Cup, 6N and your own team?
Heineken: Leinster (BOD to retire in style)
Edinburgh: A new South African coach, a bunch of Aussies signed plus Nikki Walker…not what I had hoped to see in the closed season but just want them to play good rugby finish top5 in the Rabo, not embarrass themselves in the Heine and Visser to get 20 tries.
lastly a reminder of last years rules children, play nice!
"Our annual opportunity to indulge in baiting one another along regional/national AND international lines.
1)I have tickets for Munster v Embra;you don't (Duckman to confirm if this is true again?)
2)PLEASE no individual arguments lasting more than a page;it gets tedious.
3)Ashton is,and always will be a Merchant Banker.
4) A-A is,for the sake of this thread,allowed to pick fault with his home nations players and coaches even after they have won the slam without losing a try.
5)It is ok to be a patriotic Irishman or Englishman even if you live in Bristol or OZ...
6) See 1 above.
7) No arguments carried over from last season"
