Re: No Australia or NZ at the World Cup

Are these the same two countries that our mad scientists were promoting as a beacon of hope? It was inevitable that Covid would access the Southern Hemisphere, if this doesn’t tell SAGE that lockdowns don’t work but vaccinations do then they must be thick! lockdowns work in keeping hospital numbers...

Re: Squad v Wakefield

I wasn't able to go last night because I've been a bit under the weather (non covid) this week. However, I'm off on a family holiday next week and I wasn't going to go to the game anyway because the risk of catching covid now the bars are open and there's no distancing was too high to mess up a long...

Re: Squad v Wakefield

Nothing to do with it being his turn. He should have retired last year. Adds nothing to our attack. Does the odd hit. Been a great servant but gone on too long. He is blocking the progress of Smith as he should be learning from Hastings before he goes to the nrl. TL is one of the reasons why our at...

Re: No Australia or NZ at the World Cup

And yet they send their olympians and RU side abroad no problem.

We should enter a Aussie and NZ select side on their behalves and eject the two governing bodies from the international game.

Re: Championship club deducted points for breaching rules

I'm not sure, but I think that London are still full time, so the permission not to travel didn't apply to them? Is that why they were fined? I just checked and that's why they were expected to go - they are full time but 12 other clubs in the league are part-time: https://www.skysports.com/rugby-l...

Re: Australia should be banned from next two World Cups, says legend

Ice hockey, baseball etc. dont bring american sports into it, they dont count, they win the superbowl and are classed as world champions, its a domestic competition I'm not.

Well they hardly have a recognised international tradition in the first place.
Ice hockey probably beats us in terms of nations playing TBH. Baseball a little more restricted.
