- Rugby 2019 – 2020 Season
Lineouts. With the hooker throwing in in a full lineout does that mean its 7 jumpers on the throwing side against 8? Or does a back go into the lineout?
Throwing in team decide the number, you can put as many in as you like, defending side cant have more though.Posted 3 weeks ago
right – so a normal lineout would be 7v7 then with one hooker throwing in and one hooker defending in the tramlines?
Ta – I got confused and everytime I remembered to try to count when watching a game there were too many subs on to work out what positions they were all supposed to be.Posted 3 weeks ago

Yep, you see the attacking team tell the ref the number in pro games. I used to sneak out of the lineout and then the hooker would shout numbers in school games back in the day. Free kick I think, rather than pen.Posted 3 weeks ago
Bristol have had a cracking start to the season and that was a very big victory for them.
Tigers appear to have started where they left off last year. Got humped today by London Irish.
Gloucester fans were waving fake £50 at Sarries yesterday not that it did them much good in the end.Posted 3 weeks ago
He’s got this – I believe – faux laddish personality though, which I’m guessing will rub a few up the wrong way but actually could be comedy gold. I can’t see him and Ian Wright getting on well for instance, although alternatively they could make a very good straightman/fool act.Posted 3 weeks agoTom BMember
I’ve pretty much bowed out of the rugby stuff on here, but I’ll just step in to correct you on Haskell. I’ve had the misfortune of meeting him…..it’s no act, he’s one of the most arrogant out of touch with reality blokes I’ve ever met (and I work in the music industry so meet plenty of deluded arseholes).Posted 3 weeks ago

Did exactly cover themselves in glory at the WC did they though? 😉

Could be a bit tricky for him given that England and Ireland have been shown to be bottlers on the big occasions and if there’s one thing Gatland believes, it’s that bottling in a game means you’re not Lions material. Not to mention the fact that all of Wales seem to be broken.
Maybe he should start pushing to make it the British, Irish, and French Lions 🙂Posted 3 weeks agoBruceWeeMember
Sale got smashed by Glasgow
I thought it was one of those games where they looked totally dominant but simply weren’t turning it into points in the first half. And then they came close to throwing it all away in the second half.
For most of the game Sale were outplayed but 13-7 isn’t a thrashing. Better than losing at home though.Posted 2 weeks ago
Smashed ’em because they were totally dominant.
But failed to smash them on the scoreboard…
The English teams (other than Exeter) have been shut this weekend (again). Gloucester should have won after establishing a good lead but silly penalties killed them, Wasps looked good at times but silly errors etc and Quins are just utter shite.Posted 2 weeks ago
Also bored of the baa baa’s game.
I’ve discovered U11 is where its at. Oh my, the kids have really come on. Some proper skills are now on show this season, people are standing in the right places, off the floor quickly after the tackles and rucking with intent. Not just that but working out the oppo’s over reliance on their fastest player (he’s very good) – whom my kid decided to stop with his face after I literally told him ‘get in his face and he won’t be able to run at you” 😀
Some of the passing, loops and pop passing out of tackles was properly slick for 10/11yo’s.
Two great games today – won one lost one, but all the boys played really well on both teams and it really was joy to watch.Posted 2 weeks ago
They did better than I thought they would. I’m surprised they’re not in trouble for fielding a weakened side though.
Now that they’ve confirmed that they’re accepting the fine / point deduction they’re obviously going to save themselves for the prem. Which means weakened teams…they’re now probably a guaranteed five points for those facing them.Posted 2 weeks ago
