Sports bars/pubs in Davos showing rugby?
Hi. I quickly booked cheap flights to Zurich a fortnight ago to go skiing with a friend in Davos. I've suddenly realised that I'll be there for Ireland v. Wales in the 6 nations. Anyone kn...

Grand Slam
So, who looks most likely? Ireland, Wales or neither? Ireland beat England by more but Wales looked more impressice but England certainly playd better agin the paddies. Grea...

Clean-out?
Referring to the Corry try, one commentator suggests - "that O'Gara was eligible for a clean-out was a matter for a referee's judgement". What is a clean-out in terms of the Laws? Is such ...

Jason Robinson
Since claiming in 1997 (http://tinyurl.com/5p4a7) that Jason Robinson was the best rugby player in the world, I've seen plenty of evidence to support my view. Although such statements are a...

Scotland v Italy
What a boring crap match. It's no wonder the leaguies call us kick and clap, with a 3 minute game of aerial ping pong that even the crowed started booing. In another thread I said the Paters...

Round The Wrong Way
Look, I don't like it. Why on earth is Mitchell with Perth and Nucifora at the Blues? Its a ridiculous inversion and a disaster for Australia. Nucifora will be over there givi...

Waratahs Dominant
Just as a broken clock is right two times a day, the super12 table has the Waratahs in 1st place. It must be the beginning of the season. -- Mike

Ref bashing
This ref bashing is going too far! We're watching a game with very complex (perhaps stupid) rules that can't be played without an umpire. One of the most attractive parts o...

England - contact area play
Does anyone have an opinion what is going wrong with the English recycling? Just re-watching the recording of today's game I was surprised at a number of things - but not the result a...

Lions tour heats up
The recent events in the 6N will surely heat up the Lions tour later this year. Previously I thought we'd get a bunch of English deadbeats over here and it'd be a walkover. Now at lea...

The England team
What the hell are they playing at? The last England team won the Rugby world cup for fucks sake. This team couldn't even defeat a team fielded by a bunch of school boy amateurs....

Pick an England team now.....
Forget today's farce. Ireland are a match for England, no doubts there, but Kaplan's incompetence cost us the game today. Rowntree did his job, no worries there. Thompson improve...

Congrats Ireland
Well done Ireland ! Serious, focused. Was enough today to beat a decidedly very predictable England. Wales or Ireland bound for glory... Watch out France though, Irish guys.. <...

England are now Wooden Spoon contenders
I never thought I would be able to say that. -- Hector Cameron

Brian Moore, Correct. Eddie Butler, thick Taff twat
22.10 BALL HELD UP IN-GOAL When a player carrying the ball is held up in the in-goal so that the player cannot ground the ball, the ball is dead. A 5-metre scrum is formed. This w...

no deluge of posts decrying Easterby's "red card" offence?
Bit of sarcasm there, just that a couple of weeks ago many seemed to insist Grewcock deserved lifetime bans for stepping over the ruck. I saw Easterby do that today for Ireland yet nothing w...

Thoughts on England - Ireland *spoiler* for those who get upset
I enjoyed todays game, I thought in the second half Hodgeson came into it a little, and at least kicked his goals. I like Noon - who seemed inventive at times, and if he and Barkley can fire...

Jonathan Davies says...
"It was extremely worrying watching those last three scrums and I thought the referee was going to give a penalty try." http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/rugby_union/international/43019...

Eng v Ireland
Would be interested in a genuine impartial view on that. Kaplan seemed to me to make a number of really key decisions against England. The Cueto try in the 1st half, a number of 'hold...
