5 game ban for Farrell. Misses remaining league games and the Heineken Cup QF. Started at 10 games and got 50% reduction with Mark McCall, Eddie Jones and a founder of a charity he works with to speak in his defence.
Does a lot of work for chaaaariteee but doesn't like to talk about it eh? :roll: Yes. St Dylan's Refuge for Battered Teenagers are always grateful for his unstinting support.

I would have preferred to see Farrell play for Salarysins against Sexton just to view the contest. There is no doubt that this is the game of the season for Leinster fans.

Probably a fair judgement, for the amount of dodgy tackles that he's made he hasn't copped too many suspensions. Who knows, maybe he got tackling tips from his da, they still tackle high enough in RL.

Ironically his good record is taken into consideration!

Farrell - always slightly late; always slightly high; always unintentional :roll:

Hogg has just won two trophies in a week without touching the ball!

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 currently on BT Sport v Quins.

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 ... ship/table

Top 4 Points
Newcastle 104.5
Ealing 83.42
Pirates 75.43
Coventry 65.8

Or am I missing something dead obvious?

They calculated results for the unplayed games using the games they actually got played using a formula etc.

So the latest is the Premiership will freeze relegation for 2 seasons and still allow promotion, meaning Saracens and Ealing probably go up to 14 team league. Then there will be a promotion / relegation play-off etc.
