But I do agree with the overall sentiment .
Me too, I don’t see why your behaviour outside the game is anyones business. I don’t see why you have a moral compulsion to set an example. I like rugby, the rules in the game are important, break them and face the consequences, outside, WGAS.
Therefore forgive Cips, and bin Ashton. That was not just silly it was downright dangerous. It wasn’t even a tip tackle in the heat of the game, it was a deliberate lifting and dumping.Posted 11 months ago
Although I agree with the above Cips outcome as stated, I don’t agree that any progressional sportsman doesn’t have an obligation to behave appropriately in public.
He’s a role model to kids, and as such the message that its not ok to push people about and rough up a WPC should be prominent at worst – never have happend at best.
Ashton’s behaviour is ON the pitch. Worth thinking what that might have cost, and what liability he brings during an international game. We are approaching a RWC, Eddie needs consistentcy and calm heads on the pitch .<span style=”font-size: 0.8rem;”> </span>Posted 11 months agoflanagajMember
I watched the All Black game. They have a great nack of running away with the game in the second half.
They just seem to be a league ahead of everyone else. Looking forward to Autumn Internationals
Although they beat the Wallabies, I do think Pocock is a great player to watch at the breakdown.Posted 11 months ago
That beating pocock took appears to be taking its toll https://www.foxsports.com.au/rugby/wallabies/wallabies-star-david-pocock-has-neck-troubles-after-being-targeted-by-all-blacks/news-story/7c894ae2ae91b6d4a443897c15ad50b0
I see Warburton has been imploring more protection for the jackler following his early retirement too. Can’t say I disagree.Posted 10 months ago
Pigface did you watch the Ospreys game? I couldnt find a feed fir that so watched the Blues game. Was a good game, blues scored some great tries but the Leinster pack ground them into the dust in the end. Brave from Blues, I even saw Nipper Morgan make a tackle, but in the end out muscled.Posted 10 months agoIdleJonSubscriber
Finally have a replacement tic tac from chuck it to Shane, now chuck it to George!!
Problem is that to get there the ball has to go through the 10s hands. Luke Price was ok last night, nothing more, but got injured by a late tackle. Sam Davies came off the bench and played his usual style of excellent rugby interspersed with awful mistakes. If Price isn’t fit then they’ll have Davies and Hook for the next game. 🙄
The O’s forwards looked decent, they all looked fit and everyone was surprised when one-out passes along the backs didn’t create any space. So they reverted to plan B which was to throw one-out passes along the backs and hope it would create space. Edinburgh didn’t get the memo about waving them through.Posted 10 months ago
Just to help your blood pressure DD
Apparently tho the ref has also apologised for giving the last pen to connacht ( which could have won them the game) – Grigg clearly released then went for the ball. All evens out in the end
Two Odd sets of stat. Edinburgh far better in all stats other than the scoreboard but apparently ( I didn’t see the game) never really looked like winning Whearas Glasgow were behind on the stats but allways looked like they had a chancePosted 10 months agoCaptainFlashheartMember
Have we done this yet?
"I've always dreamed of doing this!"
Game value offence…

I’m torn. Yes, it’s very clever thinking and within the laws of the game, but at the same time it feels a little bit like a Mankad.Posted 10 months ago
