Rugby A Game For Gentlemen


#701

Great news. And just for good measure the link has that great BaaBaa try


#702

Great win for Wasps at Newcastle. Not many teams come away with anything playing there.


#703

London Broncos beat Toronto 2-4 to join the top division next season.


#704

Wrong sport Dave.


#705

Got to feel for Marland Yarde, his career could be fucked. Complete dislocated knee.

He was probably the form winger in the Premiership this season, head and shoulders Sale’s best player this season.


#706

Yarde out for probably a year.


#707

I see Naim sponsor Bath RFC


#708

Ouch…


#709

Wow! Christain Wade quits Wasps and RU to try out in the NFL.


#710

odd decision but good luck to him


#711

Reaction to mad Eddie Jones and his big and stupid selection policy for players, rather than skills and speed. He has an Americal GF, spent the summer there and has not been interested for about a year.

I see the Exeter back row is ignored again.


#712

Players who should be in the England squad for the AIs.

Armand
Cipriani
Ewers
Kvesic - has stepped his game up two levels since being at Exeter
Attwood - EJ picked his deputy as Attwood starts for Barf and is better.
Alex Goode - I normally don’t like him, but he has been on fire.


#713

Great match today at Loughbro Uni, eldest son looking slightly less happy than the rest at the end.


#714

Christ, he’s a chip off the block…


#715

Lovely day for spectating! Maybe a bit too hot to play though.


#716

Jaysus ! He is just as grumpy too :wink:


#717

He looks a bit like Andy Farrell.

You dont like Andy do you Bob?


#718

He was tired, he is normally a very cheerful chap. Spent most of the match tackling and rucking as an inside centre.


#719

I dispair. Why would you beast your players and risk injury and exhaustion just before a world cup. The guy is a complete tool.

What is needed is high humidity light to medium training not just hot and beasting, so the players can recover from pre-season and the demands of playing club rugby.

In these world cup matches, high energy positions will have to be subbed in Japan.


#720
