Brand H has announced his retirement today. He’s been a good servant and whilst not the most talented player, he always gave his all and was very good when we toured Australia in 2016. He’s managed a whopping four games for Saints this season.
Worcester remain inconsistent;after a great performance against Gloucester, they got pumped by Saints at the weekend. Wasps are still shit too.
Will be interesting to see how Sarries ar after the euro final next week and how it will impact on their last few games of the prem.Posted 3 months agoloumMember
Leinster v sarries live on Ch 4 ,
For out those that didn’t know.
Sarries hitting form at the right time, Leinster losing out a bit by having their p14 conference done by Christmas.
Need to raise their game, but it’s still possible. Will more likely be brutal than pretty.
Biggest game of the season IMO
Sob’s last game too
Or there’s the 2021 lions tour to discuss if you’re Welsh. 😉Posted 3 months agomindmap3Member
I really enjoyed the game yesterday; huge commitment from both teams. When Sarries were ten nil down after 30 odd minutes I thought they’d blown it. Fair play to them for not loosing their heads and finding a way to win.bad news was injuries to Mako and Billy (who had a very good game).
Hard to see Exeter beating them in the prem final (I’m sure they’ll make it) but their form isn’t what it was. Securing their place in the knock out rounds so early hasn’t helped them.
Has it been confirmed that Edwards is 100% off to France?Posted 3 months agoSpudSubscriber
Was some game, lots of very unhappy (and absolutely battered) Leinster fans in the stadium. Best team won, it summed up Leinster’s day for me when McGrath didn’t kick it dead at half time. They’d might have held on for longer if so. Sarries defensive line was fantastic, Leinster having little room to run into.Posted 3 months agotjagainMember
Gatland for Lions, TJ will be livid!!!
Justy dissapointed. Thats the end of the lions as a “british” entity IMO
How frigging good is Liam Williams?!
Very, TJ will have a melt down when Gatland picks him for the first test over Hogg!!
Actually I wouldn’t as Williams is a great player in a great run of form. I’d say Hogg has more credit in the bank but Williams may just be in better form right now. Still an utter git tho that one would never tire of slapping!Posted 3 months ago
Sheesh, an all Irish referring team for Glasgow’s semi final with Ulster,I am sure that they will be fair but it smacks of poor planning. I mean;we could have got a Welsh ref as we have known since Christmas that they weren’t going to have any conflict of interest during the finals.Posted 3 months ago
What a tool Leo Cullen is, bringing sectarianism into rugby? Cheers for that!Posted 3 months agoIdleJonSubscriber
Did anyone watch the Ospreys v Scarlets game? I was describing the yellow card and subsequent try to a colleague ( also an Ospreys supporter, in theory) who didn’t see it and I want to gauge how one-sided my view was. 😀 Imo Dirksen was in a realistic position to catch the ball, until McNichol jumped on him, and also didn’t pull JM down – they only tangled arms as they hit the ground. And the Scarlets 6 deliberately blocked Tipuric in the try – he was ahead of the pass and collided with a defender. I’m interested to know what other think. (Partly because the Scarlets were only in this game because of those decisions, and the ref was otherwise pretty biased towards the Ospreys, I thought.)Posted 2 months ago
