Re: Bath v Ulster

I wasn’t as convinced as others that playing the French sides in Belfast and the English sides away was a particularly great set of fixtures. Not only did it ruin my holiday plans but I’m pretty sure that the reverse would have seen us qualify comfortably. If we don’t find another gear from somewher...

Re: Lions Tour to Australia 2025

That Mark guy with the long surname won’t be playing for the Aussies as he’s fecking off to rugby league for (at least) a couple of seasons.

Re: Scrums. What are they for?

Hmmmm. Strikes me as a bit of a dick too. He bustled past me at Twickenham once, with his security guard, as though he owned the place. Saw Lawrie Sanchez outside Bristol Rovers v PNE in what must have been the late 90s. He was wearing sunglasses, despite it being very miserable winter weather. He p...

Seems their number 2 SH has done his ankle and is out for three months.

Lucky for them that it isn’t Blade.

Re: URC 2022/23 - Other Sides

I believe you are right.

Still, the ref shouldn’t be announcing that the guy was upright when he plainly wasn’t. Had he been upright, he would have been shoulder-charged/head-butted in the chest!

Re: Injury Update

I’d expect Herring to start.

I can’t see McNabney starting even if that leaves us at 6s and 7s…..

Did anyone else see this “lap of honour”?

I must have blocked it out.

Same as us except Cardiff instead of Bath.

Their two French games are first up though.

Re: And today, joining the underground .....

It's obvious Dan is trying to get him game time and hopefully that turn of pace / timing will return with a body of training and games under his belt. I think he showed in small flashes what he used to have. A bit of the curate's egg performan...
