Chabal announced his retirement, he’s helped Lyon into the top 14. Great player and character, I’ll miss him.
Castres stunned Clermont to reach the semi final of the top14. Clermont’s season has really disintegrated. Sexton kicked Racing to victory over Toulose who failed to make the semis of the top 14 for the firs time in over 10 years.Posted 3 years ago

Great to see Matt Rees back and playing well after his cancer scare. James Hook has really pissed on someones chips at some point hasnt he. No idea how Gav is picked in the probables over Hook or Owen Williams or McShingler. Seems Samson Lee is picked over Rhodri Jones as back up 3 which is nice. Gyll ahead of Paul James is odd too. I reckon a few like Hook may be in the possibles to get more game time.
V SA I’d pick:

Henson back for Wales, Cipriani for England. Who would have thought it, a mouth watering discussion of what might have been ?
@aa was offered a pint of Brains in a Chelsea pub last week, seemed a bit of a bizarre place to find it offered. I didn’t realise they sold it outside of Wales.Posted 3 years agoCaptainFlashheartMember

There used to be a brilliant Welsh rugby pub on the King’s Road, the Cadogan Arms. Many a day spent quaffing in there!
Pubs serving Brains in SW3 now? Could it have been the Trafalgar, perhaps? Intrigued.Posted 3 years ago
Two big days to end Johnny’s career ?
Toulon eased past Racing to make the Top 14 final (they have never won it) Giteau scored a try and JW kicked conversion, two penalties and a drop.
Roll on Cardiff next Saturday.
Massive win for Saints, what an atmosphere that must have been.Posted 3 years ago
Tinybits Henson isnt a probable or a possible. Gatland said they picked the probable 15 and then the possible 15 then filled the benches. He’s way down the list. Wont be allowed to play anyway. Gatland does love though so he may tour.Posted 3 years ago
Cipriani to be fair is still young and did have that horrific leg break…good luck to him.
What he does off the pitch i couldn’t care less about as long as he delivers on the field. Having said that, in an interview at the beginning of the season he spoke about his friend who committed suicide (that young cricket player who’s name escapes me) and how it affected him & made him reevaluate his life and approach to his job.
Plus, he got to hump Kelly Brook – admit it, you would love the chance 😉Posted 3 years ago
