Worcester 7 tries!
bst afternoon Ive had at Sixways since we beat Bris in the play off. Had loads of kids from my U12 side around me too.
Am tired and emotional now. ANd am supposed to be flying to Glasgow first thing tomorrow so will have to take msyefl off to bed now. *hic* RRRRAAAAAAGAGGGHHHHHHHHH!Posted 2 months ago
Yup TJ, Weir was at ten. He’s playing really well for Worcester and seems to be a very good signing. He kicks pretty well too, which is nice given how poor Worcester’s tens usually are!
Kryton – alright it didn’t come off the post, but it still shows why every kick should be chased.Posted 2 months ago
Hughes has been cited for punching Ludlow in the head so may well miss the autumn internationals given that he’s likely to be hit with six weeks with not much room form reduction given that he’s been banned for striking before. Let’s hope Billy stays fit with Simmonds broken.Posted 2 months ago
Just when it was all looking quite good for Wales ffs. He never got injured at the Dregs but Bath keep breaking him. Should head back across the river!!
One injury away from an all 7 backrow. Tips, Navidi and Jenkins….might not work v big SA lumps!!!!
Still George North looks to be back on form at having the Englandshire talentectomy reversed.Posted 2 months ago
His hearing had been postponed had it not? No real reason given why. Ludlow (who he punched) has been banned for four weeks for stamping in Daily.
edit; just read that it looks like he is, hence the delay. What nobber.
Wasps look like they’re going to get dicked at the weekend; no Hughes, Robson or Launchbury and Leinster have picked a strong side.Posted 2 months agoBruceWeeMember
I think we’re going to get run over the top of pretty much everywhere. Our main hope is a high turnover percentage at the breakdown but you look at our backrow and I just don’t see anyone likely to do a John Barclay, and I doubt the ref would allow it anyway. Saying that, we also have Dunbar and Brown who are known to cause opposition problems at the breakdown.
Without forward momentum Hastings and Price aren’t going to be able to do what the need to do to keep defences guessing.
Saying that, the odds are 3/1 at the moment. That’s a better chance than I would give them. Maybe I’m missing something.Posted 2 months agodeadlydarcyMember
An away win would have been nice but great defence at the end by Munster to get the draw at Exeter. I should think they’ll be easy pickings, as premiership clubs normally are, at Thomond Park. Heart in mouth stuff when Carbery hardly tickled the clearance from around his 22ish and it still bounced over the dead ball line to gift Exeter a chance to win it at the death.
Here’s some terribly boring stuff from a prop who plays for Leinster.

James Lowe on Tadhg Furlong:
"Tadhg's bloody show-and-go then the one-handed pass; that's special.
"I don't think there's many front rowers who could do that in the world. He's a special human on and off the field." pic.twitter.com/Sqc4C39I3S
