Rugby A Game For Gentlemen


Give Ireland their due, they played a spoiling game, won loads of ball with the ‘choke tackle’ and didn’t concede penalties in the wrong areas of the field, they didn’t kick the ball away (which England did) their line out went well and they gave nothing away at the scrum.


Eddie furious?


If he was a premiership manager they would be baying for his head!


Wasps getting a spanking by Leinster.

Cips to be sub’ed soon along with Young I think.


Hope he’s ok.


Top bloke. Met him a few times as a fellow Notts uni law graduate
Just don’t get him started on feeding in the scrum…

Joseph also got the nod at centre



41 is a lot, he must be expecting a lot of injuries in the warm up games.


It’s a really tough schedule with no easy games.


The winger is my nephew. :sunglasses:

It’s on FB but can not get link to share. Hope you will see later why I thought worth postlng


Classic first album, but they went downhill after that IMO.


Help this explains the duller Uncles excitement.


Yessssss, so happy Chiefs have beaten Saffas and wiped that smug fucking smile off Owen Farrell’s face.

Come on Tigers and beat the Coventry Franchise.


Favourites for the final on their current form? They seem much more consistent than Wasps.


Wasps have been much worse since they started playing Willie La Roux, he’s runied their fluidity.


Yeeeesss come on Tigers…:grinning:


Nice try from Nowell, showing up Thomas Young and the lack of pace of Josh Bassett.
