Maybe that's to do with the kind of Lionel you tend to find in Spain. At one point it was something of a haven for ex crooks, old lags, wide boys, dodgy lads etc. and perhaps not rugby playing types?

Funny you should say that Spiffer. There's an auld lad out here who claims to have run with the Krays back in the day. Almost certainly complete ballix but should be ok anyway, since they only kill their own ...

Just watch out for Dubs called Kinahan or Hutch , time to excuse yourself and find another pub.

I've come across a number of these characters from my days in the east end.
They only served to remind me of the Monty Python sketch about Doug and Dinsdale, the Piranha brothers who were eventually apprehended by Harry 'Snapper' Organs.

I watched the first half then went out, can't be doing with basketball score rugby. :roll:

I know Eddie the Jap is not a Lionel, he's a Jap, but is it not time the Lionels woke up to realise what every other team he has coached eventually realised ............he's a tiny wab. He is leading Lionelland to destruction, a coaching Slogan if you will.

Fifth in the 6Ns, beaten by a crowd of talented players on the razzle for a week, conceding the most points ever in Twickinghouse's long history.

Frankly, I'm loving it. I hope Saffers give them an enormous kicking.................. but I wouldn't bet on it.
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

Keep Bayliss for the white ball stuff. That was his remit when he took over.
