Certainly is in England anyway, also there are Romany gypsy families over in parts of England who have been there for years, one guy I know who has a legit business turning in excess of £3 million a year still lives in a caravan and travels around the country and comes over to Ireland for 4 months each year painting sheds and doing roof repairs, pays his taxes, VAT registered and all 100% above board. He totally distances himself from the Irish traveller types and also the recent Roma influx yet can trace his own family tree back to the Punjab in the early 1700's and is very proud to be of gypsy decent but classes himself an Englishman to the core. As decent a hard working guy as you could meet, never claimed a benefit in his life and would kick the kids out of the country if they as much as suggested not working.
Lee is a pretty common gypsy name so he could quite possibly have roots way back there somewhere

Tomas Francis cited over the eye incident in yesterday's game - not a big surprise.

I'm not sure I'd know Cole's head from a rugby ball if I wasn't looking. Anyway Cole was illegal all day in every aspect, he got one wee slap in the bake for his troubles .........boo-hoo. >ESAD

In my opinion, like the TMO, the view of the incident was inconclusive regarding any intent, but like Ashton, putting his hands in the wrong area won't go down well. He will be taking a holiday, how long depends on whether it was considered deliberate or reckless.
Support the team and coaching staff. Forget the rest,BUT NEVER MOVE ON.

FIRFU - FU'CK YOU ONE AND ALL, CAVING IN TO SPONSORS, SACKING THE INNOCENT FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE, SHAMEFUL BASTA'RDS. YOU'VE LOST MY SUPPORT & I HOPE MORE ULSTERMEN & WOMEN

It was at least as bad as the Ashton case. The fact that Cole is a weapons grade WUM and the pair of them were at it all day, Like Marler and Lee is irrelevant.

I don't hate him but he is a tad full of himself, given his position on the fringe of things.

If Ferg can cover four positions, as he claims, then what is the need for Quiffy Madigan on the bench, since Jackson need only cover 10 (though I do think Jackson could cover 12 perfectly well, or even 13 if needed). Especially given that Henshaw, Earls and Payne also cover several positions between them.

That's why Joe picks me

Feck off

You played 4 positions badly, nearly botched the try of the year and scored the flukiest try of the day that even Dan Cole could have scored

So, that means that Shinnerboots is not needed, superfluous to FibberJoe's selection, not required.

Obvious, thanks to Mr Modesty McFadden for his assistance.
