    Such a sad day for Worcester.

    Is it wrong to be glad my poor old dad (former 1st team player) is not around to see this?

    Thought there was a two break down limit but I’ve been known to be wrong.

    Darge out of autumn internationals.

    I think there was a limit in one iteration of the rules

    No.

    Although the real Worcester local club is still alive and well. Back in the day I played for Bromsgrove and Worcester were local rivals and just another small club. Moseley were the local big boys and Coventry the new up and comers…It’s still a sad day though…..

    Documentary about Steve Thompson on BBC2 at the moment. It’s powerful stuff.

    Why don’t they use the precedent established with London Scottish and Richmond by the Irish theme pub and sell Worcester’s share of the prem to the team relegated? In return Bath or Newcastle(probably)can put a tiny badge at the bottom of their strips, avoid relegation and then try to sell the name back for a five figure sum to the Amateur side. Or attempt to sue them if a hundred year old club tries to use it’s own name.

    Picking at old wounds apart, I wonder how many clubs are actually sustainable long term? Sale for instance spend a fortune but get 6.5k to a home game and Wasps have a level of debt that would scare a Championship football club. No idea how Wasps, Newcastle, theme pub or Sale are sustainable long term. I suspect a British league in a decade or less with centrally contracted players for England as well.

    Rumours suggest Cardiff have sacked Navidi, Asserati and Lewis for being dicks.

    Hope Worcester have two spare tightheads going cheap if so.

    Might be a nice time to highlight the WRWC starts on Saturday. Should be a cracking set of games!

    I was hoping to watch the WRWC games on itv hub. However, the games don’t currently appear to be available. Lots of places saying they’re available live – but does anyone know if they’ll become available on catch-up? The times are not great for watching live.

    Edit: sorry just found the info. Full games will be available ‘shortly’ afterwards, on ITV hub.

    England beat Fiji 84-14. That’s a great start for England, they are in a dominant position and will retain a lot of confidence.

    Now I realise that the Australia v New Zealand game is playing right now, but I cannot find it on itv hub. Is it on there ? Am I being stupid?

    Ps sounds like a good game too!

    The ENG v FRA crunch match next Saturday is an 8 AM start thankfully. Great to see Abbie Dow back after a horrific leg break 6 months ago, scoring on her return.

    Looks like Waps are going under now, will this have a knock on effect due to teams missing games?

    Gloucester have said that the cancelled Worcester game cost them circa £400k, so for the teams that have played neither them or Wasps at home yet will loose a lot in gate receipts. As a Tigers fan, the Wasps game not happening will mean we have no home game for 7 weeks.

    That and the AB’s will be their biggest test, can’t wait to watch it especially with the continuing form.

    I was thinking the same about sale as poster above this morning, it can’t be a sustainable model however much they pay in wages.
    They still don’t own the ground, there’s no hotel, conferencing, casino or community use on the main pitch and if there is they don’t get the income. Realistically the crowds aren’t going to grow much. If the investors go bust or stop bank rolling them it’s over. Sale FC would become the only sale again.
    I do like the idea of replacing cancelled games with exhibition games that might generate more interest ala saints v barbarians, I’d also watch tier 2 international v clubs

    Watching the Japan-NZ game, NZ leading by 21-17 at half time, hoping Japan can keep this up. Christ, if someone had predicted 10 years ago that NZ would struggle against Japan, they would have been laughed at.

    NZ women aren’t struggling against Wales however. It’s horribly one way.

    LRZ is on fire at the moment (his tries at 03:18 and 76:50)

    Is anyone going to the Scotland v Australia game? Scotland ranked 6th in the World, Australia 9th. Should be close?
    Darcy Graham seems to have improved his overall game (to my uneducated eyes), I hope he has a good game today.
    C’mon Scotland!

    Indeed. All got a bit scrappy, with too many little errors. I guess down to lack of playing together? Scotland were lucky with some of the bounces, but let too many points go. Shame to lose so closely.

    Kinghorn was one of the better players but overall Scotland seemed rudderless. Not much from Duhan or D’Arcy. Some handling errors. Not much from either team to worry teams ranked above them

    Watching the England ladies performance in a downpour vs Australia, my god they make the mens team look terrible, they really are awesome players with weapons from 1-15.

    All that while we await the impending disapointment of the next Eddie Jones “surprise” strategy.

    FFS they have been fully pro for how long? Not the players fault but it is hardly a level playing field.
