Re: A leopard never changes its spots

When he signed for Worcester, they weren't really in much danger of going down. Leeds were well adrift but Back has turned them round; even Sale a few weeks ago looked hopeless but have put a couple of wins together. So Best probably thought he'd still be in the GP next season. They may even have ha...

Re: A leopard never changes its spots

Re: Referees ruining rugby?

One only needs to watch McPherson's performance tonight to evaluate the negative contribution of poor referees. Let's hear the referee defenders justify that performance. That match should be reviewed in detail and appropriate action taken. Made the Changleng days look good!! Would this go unchalle...

Re: Ulster vs Cardiff live

We are not 'close to turning the corner'. The corner is nowhere in sight. Again we were on the wrong side of the ref - doesn't matter if he didn't see all the offsides, crooked throws, whatever - we still got pinged off the park and Ha'penny kicked us to death. When the chips were down in the first ...

Re: Merry-go-round

Tonga'uiha would now like to stay on the merry-go-round until it goes back round to Northampton and not get off at Saracens as he said before.

Perhaps his change of 'heart' :roll: might be more due to a change in the teams' respective fortunes over the past couple of months........
