Re: Cricket season

This only gets a lowly bronze for complex sporting qualification behind the Heineken Cup 20/21 version and the undisputed king, that European nations league football thingy (didn't northern ireland lose all their games and still make the euro qualification playoffs or something like that?). Anyway,...

I got a message from Sir Tommy Bowe for free when I got engaged.

I’d pay top dollar for 2MP though.
Funnily enough, a dollar is exactly what he charges!

Re: Heineken Cup 2020/21

Ulster and Newcastle are probably the best two teams in it. They're certainly no worse than Gloucester and will be tough challenge away from home. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk First competitive game v Newcastle although Ulster did beat them in a preseason game a few years ago, Zach Kerr fro...

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. https://www.forbes.com/sites/alexreimer/2020/12/16/why-sports-tv-ratings-will-likely-still-suffer-in-2021/?sh=41891f2c2acf I wonder if it's the same here. I'm watching less. The sterile atmosphe...

Ref awards the try. The player decides to celebrate by picking up the ref. Gets a red card for his troubles. Deservedly, imo.

Re: COVID Impact on Fixtures

Null and void. It's a load of banker anyway. The whole season is tbh. The Eurotrash, the half ar$ed league, the Rainbow Warrior Cup and the endless series of internationals which all seem to be against Wales. The sooner 20/21 is put out of it's misery the better. Agreed, no point winning any of the...

Re: English Premiership 2019/20

What's happening with the Engerlish Championship this season? Are Sorries likely to be stuck in the doldrums for another year? Starting in March. 2 x conferences of 6. Teams play each other H & A (10 games). Winner of each conference play in final, likely to be Saracens v Ealing. London Irish curre...
