Shame Saffacens didnt try that offer last year. Henson was excellent v them for Welsh denied a try from a questionable reffing decision but scored at least a drop goal. Just moved so no internet to see any games the team Bath chose looked like they had chucked the towel in before they started. Shame Saffacens have to resprt to cheap publicity stunts to get away fans as they have none of their own………. Not…..Posted 4 years ago
Last Saturday, BT sport was absolutely appalling. It was a football show with a game of rugby wedged in. All of the per match, interval and post match was just football talk. They had a football score ribbon at the top of the screen. Complete shit. Today was completely different. Shaun Edwards and dallaglio were brilliant pundits who talked a lot of sense and Edwards did a mini lesson in defensive patterns. Really impressed.Posted 4 years ago
So have the English and French definitely broken away from the Heineken Cup?
There was some interesting discussion of it here
Seems like a complete mess and the IRB don’t seem to be involved too much at the moment 😕 It seems a bit like the IPL T20 league in cricket in some ways… although I can’t see rugby going that way. Seems the English and French have the financial clout to be in the stronger position and no doubt the Celtic league and IRB will bend most in the “mediation” going on last minute herePosted 4 years ago
All of the Celtic Unions have released statements saying they will not play in any tournaments not sanctioned by the IRB…
Quite right too. ERC ltd is dead though. The French and English have been VERY clear that they won’t play in a comp organised by them under any circumstances. The celts deliberately didn’t mention ERC by name. It’s a complete mess.
Calum Clark sent off again…….Posted 4 years ago
Foden is bloody brilliant. I’d forgotten how good he is.
Wow did anyone else just see Cuthbert’s try?! I’m not his biggest fan, but good god what a try!
Rob Kearney still couldnt tackle a kebab! Was a pretty good game, shame the ref was so far out of his depth it wasnt funny. I thought Warburton looked good for his first game back. Patchel could be very special too as could Owen Williams. Leinster had far too much class though.Posted 4 years ago
Now, I haven’t seen any other training grounds, but after helping a mate out this week at Bath’s, I’m pretty sure no team else in the country has such surroundings in which to train. They even have an AstroTurf half-pitch just for training…in a bleeding walled garden! (Not that it helped them at Allianz). The money that’s being spent on the refurb of Farleigh House (Google it for images) is staggering.
Still couldn’t find Peter Stringer anywhere. I wanted to get his autograph for my mate’s lads. 🙁Posted 4 years ago
(and give him a hug).
Knew we were going to lose to Saints last night but I’m fairly happy with Sale this morning. Sale were missing Tuitipu and Leota along with Peel and Gaskell but they showed some ambition and an attacking style that’s been sadly missing for a couple of seasons.Posted 4 years ago
Saints were far more physical and that told in defence, good game though and I’m happy Sale are moving forwards.
Agree MD. Only watched the second half and Sale looked pretty effective and resolute in defence and looked like they were constantly probing. A lot of injuries at the moment include Peel, McLeod and Buckley (who may have been effective last night) to your list.Posted 4 years ago
I had hoped for a losing bonus point at best but all in all it looked like a reasonable performance against a better team.
The game will be at the Rec surfer, which is a great spot for an evening game.
The owner bought this place a few years back and is restoring it. It’s a pretty impressive little pad. The floor we’re doing in the boardroom is gawdknowshowmuch. 🙂
Gimme a holler when you’re down for the game. Would be good to grab a beer over that way.Posted 4 years ago
