Re: Saracens

It appears the old custom of “boot money” is still alive & kicking & clapping 😉 Big Boots to fill as well Josie, not just marginally over the salary cap but in a different league. death? Just read the story in the Daily Telegraph Sports section. The official salary cap for RU Premiership sides is £...

Test v NZ tomorrow.

Now Josie I know it is on the wrong subject but I want anyone who comes on to answer this question. When and where is the match on TV??? I thought it was on the BBC at 3am but no sign of that on my planner, just a 30minute section at 5-30am but also being promised on the SkyMix channel at 5-50am but...

Re: Why we will be worse off through Brexit (Question from other forum)

Farage is remain's best weapon. And he is a weapon. Let's hope he lives up to the record of hard core Brexiters and stops Brexit from actually happening. He could do it by standing against the tories, splitting the vote and letting the lib dems in. He said he'll do this if Boris isn't hard leave en...

Re: Changing of the guard

In 1996 Wigan RL played Bath RU in a couple of matches. Whilst, somewhat predictably, Wigan won the RL game and Bath came out on top in RU, it was generally accepted that in the traits that were common between the two codes- running, passing, lines of attack and general skill levels, RL was light y...

Neutral areferees?

Seemed funny that in a match between Tonga and GB we finished up with a British referee. Surely we could have found an Aussie or Kiwi ref, not because I think they are generally better, they've gone backwards in my personal opinion since they went to 2 on the field, but just to show that we play the...

Re: Why we will be worse off through Brexit (Question from other forum)

Well Heseltine doesn't think the Tories will win. Thinks they will lose Scotland and seats to the Lib Dems in England and are not guaranteed to pick off Labour marginals in "Labour Leave" seats either. He sees another minority Tory government. Johnson has royally pissed off the Unionists so don't e...

Re: Why we will be worse off through Brexit (Question from other forum)

I think the best thing to do would be to make a tradition out of this with lots of costumes, ancient traditions, and marching and stuff. We could make it part of our "unwritten constitution" - every year the houses of parliament first mislead the queen, then vote against the government and force th...
