Great performance by Wuss yesterday, taking five points against Sale and easing their relegation fears. Adams was bloody brilliant, scoring a hat trick. He’ll be a massive loss next season.
Bristol beating Sarries was a surprise. Billy V was booed when he came off the bench. I was kind of hoping that Falcons would beat Tigers even though it would have helped pressure on Wuss. Gloucester have definitely found a backbone this season with another good result.
Big result for Glasgow hammering Leinster yesterday.Posted 10 months ago
I watched the Gloucester Bath game last night; how did Bath balls that up having been so dominant in the first 30 minutes. Burns looked brilliant in those first minutes too. Gloucester really have developed a backbone this season. Cips has signed again for them which is good and Slater has proved to be a good old workhorse for them.
Hell of a result for Wasps yesterday too given how they usually struggle against Exeter and have never won down there.,Posted 10 months ago
I feel sorry for the Bath fans who traveled to Sale last night for what was probably the worst game of the season. Awful by both sides; Priestland had a mare when he came on. BT definitely chose the wrong game to show on TV.

I just watched the 2000 calcutta cup match ( off work sick). It was almost a different game., Scrums so much quicker and no collapses but rucks and mauls were just a mess and several key decisions were wrong which wouldn’t happen now with TMO
Very much less organised off first phase ball – hardly any dummy runners and no loops or set piece moves.
Still enjoyed it thoPosted 10 months agoKryton57Subscriber
You might take the time to have a look and England Rugby’s Instagram feed. Yesterday they posted an “ask Eddie” pic of Mr Jones. The subsequent gazillions of questions, dominated on the subject of a recent RPA nominee that has been starring at 10, are almost as funny as the Amazon hair removal cream reviews.
It certainly cheered me up, and allude to the baying inclusion of Cips and Goode to the RWC team.

the baying inclusion of Cips and Goode to the RWC team
Goode is simply far too slow to play fullback in international rugby.
If you look at various tries conceded by Sarries over the years, there are many where he gets easily burnt off and many more where he doesn’t even get anywhere near the ball carrier due to his glacial speed.
He’s been a great club player, no doubt, and might have done a job at 10 or 12 for England but line him up anywhere he’d be exposed to a bit of pace and he’d be exploited every time.Posted 9 months agotinybitsMember
Agree about Goode, with a bit more pace he’d be astonishing. He’s very good at club level but just not quite there as an international.
In other news, my lad met NotToby Faletua at school yesterday. When asked if he liked Bath or Wales he replied ‘no, I like Leicester and England and Johnny May!’ He’s 5. LOVE Him!Posted 9 months ago
