Re: English Premiership 2019/20

Bit of a sidetrack into the Championship for a sec. Anyone explain this table? I assume from the attenuated last season. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/the-english-championship/table Top 4 Points Newcastle 104.5 Ealing 83.42 Pirates 75.43 Coventry 65.8 Or am I missing something dead obvious?

Re: Big World of Rugby

Welcome Rosie. Nice find.
'Steeno' for only $5. Interesting to see him described as a businessman as well as rugby player. Personally, I'd go for the cameo Ulster hero Stefan Terblanche at $30. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmekPAmyQAQ

Re: Pro 12 20/21

Nice guy Liam Williams got 3 match ban, misses apparently scheduled but yet to be announced Pro 14 game v Cardiff next week, Leinster and Wales v Ireland for his ruck clear out.

Re: Ulster ‘A’ v Leinster ‘A’ Fri 15th Jan 3pm KO Live on BBC iPlayer and BBC Sport NI website

Just watched the match - really entertaining and a super result. Standout players? McCann, Izzy, Sexton and Doak. Doak is the most interesting. I hope he matures and doesn't get carried away with himself and is humble enough to learn. He's by no means the finished article but he can both box kick an...

Best I've read is Brian Moore's 'Beware of the Dog'.
Worst I've read is Brian O'Driscoll's 'A Year in the Centre'.

Re: Big World of Rugby

Interesting to see that tv viewing figures for sport are down in the last year, at least in the US of A.
