Rugby thread 2016/2017
And brizz will bounce straight out unless they can massively up the game they played against Doncaster the other day!
To be fair, wuss beat us by one point in the PO’s, didn’t look great and they have managed to stay up so I’m quietly confident.Posted 1 year ago
We now have a (very good) defensive coach, some decent centres and no more of Holleys hair brained ideas of how to play.
With Blackadder going to Bath looks like they’ve recruited Robbie Freuan at centre too. He’s had some injury blighted years but could be handy.
Dave Rennie to take over at Glasgow after Townshend. That’s a coup…
The Chiefs have played some fabulous rugby under Rennie. I guess he’s widening his CV with the long term aim of coaching the ABs.Posted 1 year ago
Sale Sharks 33-Edinburgh 28 good game from both teams. Had a chat with Edinburgh’s lock Fraser McKenzie after the game, bugger is huge! Lovely chap though.Posted 1 year ago
I don’t watch much Pro12 rugby, so can anyone tell me how Edinburgh’s pack is rated? Sale were destroying them tonight.
The edinburgh first choice front row is the scotland one – Nel, Dickinson, Ford. NOne of them played. McInally in the second choice scotland hooker and he ws in the squad. I can only find squad details for the match not who the actual team was. Good to hear the backs were good. Was Meatball ( Duncan Weir) starting 10?Posted 1 year ago
Thats him. Good player.
This year Edinburgh should be able to mount a serious challenge in the pro 12. We how have not one but two decent 10s. Last year we played the whole season without one. I hope Sam Hidalgo-Clyne can rediscover his form at 9. Weir has moved from Glasgow where he was 2nd choice behind Russell and has hardly had any gametime. another one who needs to rediscover form. 3 years ago he looked great, injured then too much sitting on the bench has meant he has not progressed as he should. Couple of good young uns to watch. Kinghorn at fullback ( 19 yr old), Jamie Ritchie a 99 kilo back row who is only 20 and Hamish Watson who I hope really kicks on this year – a fearless and fast back row but a bit lightweight.
Solomans needs to rotate a bit more tho – he worked the front row into the ground and didn’t give the youngsters much gametimePosted 1 year ago
Those Aussies eh!!!Posted 1 year ago
The try that was disallowed for offside was another fantastic example of 1-15 drawing a man and giving a pass, simple stuff done well, amazing. Combined with Barretts pass injections from 10 the are wonderful to watch.
Aus 3 NZ what is it 32 now at half time.
Some nasty injuries though which I dont like to see.Posted 1 year agoDezBSubscriber
My god, are the Wallabies really as bad as the ABs are making them look?Posted 1 year ago
Some of the selections for the Australian team are beyond my comprehension. Clearly they needed a shake-up after the England tour, and yet the only difference seems to be Genia back in at scrum half?? And he is bottling tackles!
Scarily good NZ team anyway.
