Well obviously ... we all know that in the history of the game no one has ever scored an entirely legal try. :roll: Every single try e...

Re: Guinness PRO14 season has been suspended in response to the evolving COVID-19 outbreak until....

Didn't think suspensions or other penalties with no end date were allowed under Human Rights laws?

League should just plead guilty, wear a nice suit and not eat the biscuits, and maybe suspension will be cut by a few weeks.

Re: 6N 2020

For those that thought Marler's tickling was just a harmless joke, consider this - if he did that in any other workplace or any other place for that matter, he would find himself on a sexual assault charge and upon conviction (it was caught on TV after all), signing the sex offender's register, and ...
