Hadn't even considered that. Maybe it's not so irrational.

No thanks.

I say this for no other reason than I, personally, find him irrationally objectionable.

Re: Cut to Championship Funding

Speaking as a career cynic (literally), the tone of it feels like the writer knows there is little to no chance of swaying them, so might as well muddy them as much as possible. I tend to share their view.

Re: Team for Scotland

Curry's control at the base was much better on Saturday in his SECOND match at No.8. Apart from breaking and carrying from the base of the scrum, why is there the obsession that the No 8 necessarily has to be a big ball carrier, if there are other options in the pack. Especially at lock, and with p...

Re: 6 Nations 2020

This is the most entertaining match of the tournament so far. Slight caveat is that I didn't see Ireland Wales yesterday

Given how much Scotland lineout we spoiled, it was a pretty credible plan :)

What did Farrell do, at all, other than miss a penalty? I'm including captaining the side in my rhetorical question here.

Re: Team for Scotland

Kicking was poor execution, but imo not the wrong tactics generally. It was hideous out there. Backrow looked decent, Kruis eventually mastered the lineout in attack and defence. Nothing much else to say - except we do some quite unintelligent things on a regular basis. Backrow was the only decent ...

Re: Team for Scotland

Why else are we kicking quite this much? In every situation? Either they're playing to orders or they're not fit to wear an England shirt. In which case, why the hell have they been picked. The buck stops with the head coach. Yup, just a witch-hunt then. In these conditions, the coaches are the lea...

Re: Team for Scotland

Just musing over what's gonna happen now Manu's out. Is Eddie gonna do an Eddie and call Francis into the squad and put him straight into the team or what? Or is Devoto actually gonna get some decent minutes? Ford, Faz, JJ seems to be lacking something..... The snag is that Ford/Farrell, Devoto, Jo...

Odd how it's all converging in the middle. 4 years ago we were up in arms about 2 and (particularly) 12, now 8 and 9 are a shambles. If anyone solves it we'll have a black hole form at Twickenham as HalfRobotCoach Farrell Jr hoists the 2039 WC trophy, following a flawless victory over the Ireland si...

Re: Team for France

I'm actually quite worried about that French side. Its early days and they may not click, but jeez if they do........ Yep. On one hand it's a boon that we're playing them first, so they shouldn't click. On the other, we haven't got anything to analyse and prepare with. I'm hyping this up in my head...
