very impressive but can they do thisPosted 3 months ago
Christian Wade has made it on to the Buffalo Bills practice squad. One step nearer the NFL.
Wade will be part of the International Player Pathway Program this season, which allows the four franchises in the AFC East to carry an extra player on their practice squads, as long as they are international players from abroad. As the 11th member of the practice squads, they are ineligible to be activated during this season and moved onto the franchises’ regular 53-man rosters.
Still a steep learning curve for the guy but good luck to him. I heard him interviewed in a Radio5 show and he was very down to earth. Not bitter, in the slightest, about being constantly snubbed by England and incredibly positive about following his own ambitions.

Good win for Glaws this weekend, but picked up a few injuries. I make that 5 out of 6 with an irritating loss to Bristol. Hope for a home win against Bath next up, and that is more or less a top four confirmed.
Anyway, lets get back to talking about the welsh grand slam.Posted 3 months ago
CB Fry played cricket and football for England as well as being world record holder for the long jump. He missed out on playing rugby for England as he didn’t play in the trial.
He also missed the chance of a medal in the 1896 Olympics because he “didn’t know it was on.”Posted 3 months ago
I thought I had better check !
Gary Parker played both rugby and soccer for Scotland ( one at schoolboy level)- I thought he was also a kicker for the Scottish claymores in American football but upon checking that was Garry Parker – a different chap. I always thought it the same person. doh!
Gavin Hastings also played for the Claymores for one season. The american football counts as =internationals !Posted 3 months ago
He was their kicker for a season.
Yes, believe it or not, the Scotland and British and Irish Lions legend Gavin Hastings played for one season with NFL Europe team, the Scottish Claymores.
He played for one season in 1996-97 and was the placekicker for the team. In his one season as an American Football player, Hastings managed 24 out of 27 conversions – which is a pretty decent record.”

Sarries make a complete joke of the salary cap, no way they could assemble a squad like that without some creative side arrangements. Everyone has know it for years. It was brushed under the carpet the last time. And to those who think it doesn’t affect you it is the reason they can add players like Rhys Carre and Eliot Daly without batting an eyelid.Posted 3 months agoTom BMember
Scrum half situation now is the worst case scenario of what could’ve happened based on selection policy during Eddie Jones’ tenure. I’m all for stability and consistency, but whom are we playing at 9 over the summer now? Spencer? He’s getting married in the summer so will possibly missing a few camps, Robson and Young’s possibly out, Care out of favour…..not looking good!Posted 3 months ago
