Re: v Wales

Regarding that knock on, as far as I can find the law on the knock-on is; A knock-on occurs when a player loses possession of the ball and it goes forward, or when a player hits the ball forward with the hand or arm, or when the ball hits the hand or arm and goes forward, and the ball touches the gr...

Re: v Wales

It was Jean-Luc, 1m 37 of this video - https://www.premiershiprugby.com/prtv/#pr-videos "Contact is on the shoulder" is a weird interpretation of an elbow to the head. I mean Dombrandt milks it, but even so Bedlows is accidental - think most would agree that. JLdP - on other side of ruck,...

Re: Irish Vs Bristol, Sunday 15.00

Sam Bedlow has been cited, suspect a hefty ban coming.

Just seen the Du Preez shoulder to Dombrandts head, if Bedlow is a red (& it is) and he's been cited, how the hell has he got away with that... He has a load of previous for it as well.

Well that was a bad second half... Fair play to Irish on a great come back! Bedlow - lucky to stay on the pitch, thought it was Red myself. Eadie - bloody stupid... Armstrong - simply not good enough, scrum turns to crap everytime he's on. Pat Lam - took off key players too soon (it turned out), but...

Re: Glouceaster v Bristol, Fri 12th 19.45

I wouldn't contend is does relate to Glaws, but the discussion does seem to touch in part on the Bristol lineup, and what I take from the lineup is they're not especially relevant to England with that mix of players. Brizzle though are perhaps copying how Sarries went when starting to build an impr...

Re: Glouceaster v Bristol, Fri 12th 19.45

Not entirely sure what this has to do with the Gloucester game...

But Mako and Ellis came through at Bristol, so that's 6 that Bristol have contributed to. Think Billy was in the set up but only briefly.

Re: Team for Italy

I'd have said that was a jump to avoid a tackle myself. Clearly jumps up and doesn't dive forwards.

Well done though.

Can we please stop with the "Lam for England" chat, he's had one flukely win at Connacht and done ok with loads of money at Bris.

Yep. Many years ago I put up a poll on here (well, a previous iteration) and subsequent discussion about who would be England’s long term 13: Tuilagi, Trinder or Lowe. I think I may have cursed them all.

Re: Glouceaster v Bristol, Fri 12th 19.45

Wins a win but that was not pretty. Hopefully Bryne and Hughes aren't too badly crocked! POC had another good game and Lloyd is growing into the 10 spot.

Hopefully a better performance and no more injuries next week!

Not surprised it's happened - I am surprised there was opposition to it. I'd like to think it was Bristol (at least) but can't see that being the case!

Re: Team for Italy

Personally I think this selection marks a huge change in game plan. Eng will now hoof it away from 12 instead of 10 - sheer genius.....

Re: Team for Italy

While Dombrandt playing lock for England is traditional Woodward bonkers, I do feel the need to point out that Dombrandt does and has played lock (certainly more recently and regularly than Hill) and was signed for Quins as a lock/back row.
