Chuckles,
It was just a mistake mate, nothing more. Trying to do 3 things at once at the same time as posting, got the name wrong. Not sure how you can construe this to be racism on my part.

This is why I hardly ever post on PR.

Had a genuine rugby bee in my bonnet and wanted to air my view in case anyone else interested in rugby wanted to comment.

It's bell-ends like chuckles hell-bent on derailing genuine threads who spoil this forum.

You clearly didn't watch Hughes performance at the weekend then.

Didn't play too badly. But is so upright going to contact that he is becoming easier to defend against.
Bit of a penalty machine and to be honest looks absolutely knackered at the moment.


How many penalties has he given away his last 5? Games

What? I've not checked, but I'd figure penalty machines give away 2+ a game?

Looking at Hughes he has the body of the perfect 8 but is a nothing player compared to Billy who is just a fatty. Says it all

See now I've checked :D. Last 5 games for Wasps, 2 of those being substitute appearances, penalty machine Nathan Hughes has given away 2 penalties.

He's a dick alright. No idea why he used a gif of Christian Wade to accuse you, though.

People calling for Ben Morgan, WALDROM or a straightup Fijian poach to replace Billy Vunipola, a fairly good eight.

No idea. But just seems to get pinged regularly, particularly for holding on.

I counted for you, I'll say here again, in his last 5 games (2 of which were subs), he's given away 2 penalties.

Indeed. We've lost the once over there in our last four visits. Fearsome place.

I'm sure James Haskell is a good bloke to have in a tour party, full of bants and a great guy to keep spirits up. There is also an argument that his experience will be beneficial although quite how many rookies there are on tour to benefit from this experience is debatable (he'd be far better used in this role on the Argie tour)



The Lions is serious business. It's the best players in each position that you need. Haskell is at the end of his career, lacking a yard of pace for any of the back-row positions, and frankly out of form.

With Billy V's withdrawal surely you look for a like-for like replacement and pick a specialist 8. (If either Faletau or Stander goes down early on we're looking pretty thin in that position)
So who are the form 8s ? Thomas Waldrom for my money is a shoe-in, one of the most consistent and hard-working players in the Premiership (also knows his way to the try line) He's a better rugby player than Haskell hands down. There, I've said it. Must have upset someone in the RFU.
Then there's Nathan Hughes. Not quite a Billy V but did an admirable job filling his boots when given the chance. What about Ben Morgan ?
Even if you're ignoring the specialist position and just picking a back row utility man then Robshaw is a safer pair of hands who contributes far more.

How the hell 'Brand Hask' has blagged his way on to that plane is beyond me. The selection blunder of the year !


Freddie Flintoff thinks he's a cock and that's good enough for me.

If you're a fan of awful chat shows perhaps, but he acted the cock in his final years and his self-promotion rankled with a lot of people
