Sounds like an exercise in avoiding injuries rather than a game to win.
Nah, why does Stevens need to stay injury free? 😈
What scares me about the weekend is that we were going to demolish their pack,on provincial evidence it hasn’t happened. The sum of the Aussie parts are making me a wee bit uneasy. There has been enough individual performances against us to suggest Australia will be a very difficult side to beat.Posted 4 years agonamastebuzzMember
We’d probably have won with a proper fly-half on from the start.
Poor performance all round, notably by the front 5, Tipuric, Youngs (who’s a petulant **** when thing’s aren’t going his way) and Barritt.
Kearney played well.
Felt sorry for Twelvetrees who’s a decent player but generally got man and ball in hopeless situations.
The subs should’ve all gone on at half time then at least Farrell would’ve kicked us to victory. Would have been good for moral leading up to the first test, if nothing else. 🙁Posted 4 years agotinybitsMember
Seriously, can you all just pack it in? I’ve never met (?) such a bunch of dainty flowers.
Australia are always difficult to beat, especially at home.
A series win would be quite something, and by no means easy. I do predict all the players involved to take it up a notch for the first testPosted 4 years ago
Zokes, it is intereresting how the media in England has been reacting.
1) Zero mention of the england tour to argentina, where we did very nicely, but loads of lions chatter.
2) Bigging up the lions, they are going for a series win, best side ever, etc, etc.
And these are so called england centric newspapers, always portraying england as the assumed winners..Posted 4 years ago
I have no idea what you are driving at.
It’s the criticism thrown at most English teams, especially by certain posters on here who are supporters of the other home nations. This usually happens whilst swearing blind that their own ‘confidence’ can in no way be perceived as arrogance.Posted 4 years ago
It’s slow, dull, the rules stop flowing rugby, expensive, no big hits because of the threat of penalties so players deliberatly fall ino tackles, too many penalties, too many kicks, too much reward for kicks in comparison to tries, too much reward for drop goals, the players don’t know the rules, it’s that non contact that it needs players with fake blood to get blood bins, Stuart Barnes is a tool, Even David Campese sent his kid to play league, Jonathan Davies, Gareth Thomas and many other players say league is better and wish they’d played it sooner.
In a nutshell, it’s almost comical to watch your pathetic game trying to be important, we play a game in the pub where everyone puts a pound in and we all guess what will be happening when we turn it on.
No on EVER says the ball will be in play, you know, with rugby happening.
The team with the most penalties wins, 31 pens to 28 pens.

This thread is becoming a real chore
Well I suppose that reading constant sniping between zokes, toys19 and a_a is becoming a chore. Perhaps if we can get them banned then the rest of us, plus others who are bored silly by them and don’t post because of them, might be able to talk about rugby?Posted 4 years ago

You’re clearly a bitter league fan, thanks for posting and enlightening us.
Yep, his profile photo is of him wearing his RL shirt, proud boy.
But I think the post below sums up how intelligent RL fans are. I’ve never needed to post on STW asking questions like this:

It’s my daughters nursery sports day today, will there be a dads race?Posted 4 years ago
Ask the school, Jonny, They’ll be able to tell you more. 😛 😆
I’ve been in for an operation and didn’t think for a second i’d have a chance to run in it, so I didn’t ask. I’m feeling fine so I think if there is one, i’ll give it a go.Posted 4 years ago
That’s okay isn’t it, or are you going to get even more personal and question my intellect again?
