Re: Time to move on

I was a bit surprised that my 'Reason for stopping playing' had to put down as 'Other'. There wasn't a 'because I was shîte' option.

I don't think there'd be any room. Perhaps someone should call room-service.

Re: November test matches

I agree with you on the issue of a penalty offence at the scrum, but I don't think Barnes is alone in doing that. I would suggest that most refs allow play to continue if the ball comes back quickly, irrespective of any offences occurring in the scrum. Indeed I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) tha...

Re: November test matches

The problem with scrum penalties is frequently it is difficult to correctly identify who is offending . Eg a front row may go down voluntarily or may be forced down by illegal means in such circumstances refs may make a wrong call — knowing that ,frequently no call is better than a wrong call. Sent...

Re: November test matches

You'll never agree with every decision by a ref and for me last night was no exception, but overall i thought my mate Barnsie had a decent game. Not questioning his decisions, more his style. If the kiwis can't see when a ball is out (or understand his interpretation of that) then that is their pro...

Re: November test matches

I enjoyed that game. Re Barnes - why is he telling the NZ team when the ball is out on the Irish side? For me it is an example of the way he coaches and lets infringements go. Another is the way he ignored infringements in the scrum provided the ball gets played. Why does he insist on addressing al...

For a reset - I agree. But a penalty offence should at least generate an advantage.

Re: Time to move on

Jeepers Rum you homophobic old bore. Yes and thoroughly reprehensible to link "bum banditry" (which is legal between consenting adults) and "kiddy fiddling" in the same sentence. Even assuming you and Rim'n share the same definition of bum banditry, if the acts took place in 1973, then your argumen...

Re: Thundercunt of the week V1.4

Not convinced by the ,Trump not wanting to get his hair wet' narrative. Fake news. What is interesting is that he seems prepared to let this one go rather than provide an alternative explanation. Didn't want to cause traffic jams apparently. I saw one of his minions say he was acting on security ad...

Re: What are you drinking?

Previous experience means I'm not a fan of mixers and that puts me off the idea of gin a little. I tend to get put off any drink that requires another drink to be added to make it palatable. In my experience all that does is ruin two perfectly acceptable drinks. I long ago arrived at that conclusio...
