Where's that thread where we complained about how marketing cnuts have ruined rugby?

Image


Will Tigers whinge about this, too, and post a reactionary billboard like they did when Wasps moved?


What AP clubs still have a classic badge? Just Northampton? Maybe they'll swap for a caricature of Roger Moore, given that the stick man is too 'retro' for today's youf?

My guess would be fasting and Ketogenic diet.

Would also like to find out more.

Fantastic news for the Youngs family though!

Gloucester are offering to pay people with tattoos of the old club crest to have new ones done. :shock:

Did a quick search, and there are black and white pics from maybe the 70s where Bath shirts have no crest at all. Is the round one from the 80s or 90s?

Not sure how far it goes back, and I guess Wasps and Quins logos have some history to them as well ... I was thinking along the lines of heraldic crests. Maybe not many ever had them? Worcester used to have the shield with three pears. Sale must have had something before "Sharks".

The badge looks similar but many of the fans weren't happy when the wording changed to "Bath Rugby" from "Bath FC"

Sale's insignia was a wheatsheaf, the county crest of Cheshire, the county being famous for its dairy farming, obviously. I think it's still the emblem of Sale FC.

Glaws changed thier logo before IIRC and it caused an absolute stink amongst the fans.

Great team. Can't really quibble over any of them given their relative seasons. Gibson for example has been outstanding despite the majority of his mates phoning it in.

Only quibble is no sarries' representative.

And no, I'm not sure who I'd pick, but I reckon they're going to end up with the title.

Or, can we play this team v sarries at some point?

If Billy brings his A game I'd agree with that.

I'd rather watch a Premiership All Star game than yet another meaningless national team Test, actually. They're good fun in North American sports. Go with rolling subs.

Vereniki Goneva has been named as the Premiership Rugby Player of the Season, just a week after fellow Fijian Leone Nakarawa was named EPCR European Player of the Year, looks like northern hemsiphere teams need more fijians :P

If you want to be brutal, Rob Horne got the 13 shirt on a sympathy vote. Easily the best back at Saints this season, but there were better 13s out ther

I've barely seen Gibson outside of the highlights, but I wondered if Ross would have been in for a shout at the 6 shirt.

Would have been just as worthy, so too Jack Willis.

Gibson has been really good in an awful side so it’s a decent call.

He missed half the season, and when he has played he's been on the wing fairly often too.

Apart from a couple of niggles he's been fit all season, played 25 games across all competitions. He's only really played on the wing for that last couple of months when we lost four others through injury.

It's a Premiership side - he's started 14 games and had 3 off the bench. Not exactly an ever-present.

What the fudge are they doing in Eddie Jones training camps? They are supposed to be getting players into peak condition and peak rugby form. He seems intent on achieving the opposite. the whole "Train smarter not harder" methodology seems to have bypased Eddie Jones completely.

Sam Jones never played again
Tommy taylor has played about 180 minutes this season after Eddie's post AP final session

From a Bath pov, that's Ellis, Ewels, Underhill, Watson and now Obano that England have broken in training in the past 12 months or so. Or, given we've had about 15-20 players missing most weeks all season, it could be our S&C department.

Nothing serious, I don't think. Can't really remember though, it's not something I obsess over - Quins S&C do a fine job of injuring players themselves.

Oh, hang on - he did maliciously mention Jack Clifford's name in the media once. Might as well have hit him with a lorry himself.

As if there are other teams than wasps :lol:

Eddie broke Gary Graham as well, which was annoying as it delayed finding out who he was by a couple of months.

With Obano broken and Eddie having access to the rest for another week, expecting another couple of casualties who will be left standing to take on the mighty BaaBaas

Going to be a reasonably strong team to stop the 3 game run even though its non-capped?

Eddie will go for

Marler
McGuigan
Sinks
Stooke
Beaumont
Robshaw
Curry
Mercer
Youngs
Ford
May
Teo
Trinder
Yarde
Brown

It's the BaaBaas so I'd go for

Genge
Singleton
Schonert
Beaumont
Stooke (only 2 locks??)
Ross
Curry
Mercer
Velacourt
Smith
Cokanasiga
Teo
Trinder
Solomona
Woodward
