Rugby A Game For Gentlemen


#821

I love Iceland!

Did you know they’ve banned palm oil products in their products?

You did know that it was that Iceland rugby team I was referring to, didn’t you?


#822

Do you think they’ll rebrand once global warming hits?


#823

I prefer to call it climate change, but that’s another (very long) story.

In the meantime, I’ll support Iceland (and their rugby players) as their stance on palm oil is commendable.


#824

Barbarians 38-35 Argentine

Cracking stuff, highly entertaining!


#825

Bristol 41 - 10 Leicester

Highly satisfying


#826

Thacker, oh how Tigers management must be regretting letting him go.


#827

Yep, five tries in two games and he has played himself into the first XV


#828

Bath 0 v Sale 0 HT.:joy:


#829

A little reminder to the ZA fellows.


#830

I remember watching that. I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited watching a rugby game that England weren’t involved in.

I couldn’t understand why they didn’t take the 3 points and get what would have been a sensational draw. I think EJ said afterwards that he would have taken the draw, but fair play to the players on the pitch going for broke.

Amazing stuff!


#831

Worth going just for the show


#832

Had some great days at the Twickenham 7s.

Anyone recall the day it rained and the streakers ran riot!? Circa 1999?!
I think it got to 20 odd and the more the stewards tried the more they fell over.


#833

Blimey, Tulon got two great players.


#834

Madness.


#835

London Irish will share Brentford’s new stadium in 2020. Memories of Sunbury piss ups years ago. :heart_eyes:


#836

Been to Sunbury ground many a time for A League and U18s Academy, very Irish. The new training ground is rather swish nearby.


#837

The exiles moving to Brentford could save the club. The Madejski was way too big. Awful place to watch a game. Shame they lost big Bob Casey though, had a few beers with him down the years (my bezzie mate works for London Irish own Mick Crossen). Bob (the only person I know that I literally look up to), was great for the club, but fell out with Mick after years of bad decisions about pay for management staff.


#838

Watching Saints Vs Worcs, two sides trying to avoid the drop.


#839

Do you have a view on this Bob?


#840

He’s a disgrace if that is a true account of proceedings.

Sale should discipline him, let alone the authorities. Why would you want your club to be associated with someone like that?
