Wayne Barnes festooned in England gear. Great that he's reffing us in the 6N :thumbup:

Must be quite the realisation when it hits you that he's an RFU employee...

great workout for the lads.

I hope Wayne feels compelled to perform his civic duty for Queen and country when refereeing Ireland.

Quite. I do like Lacey. Good ref. Slightly strange accent though. I'd harbour a guess that he's from near the border?

Entirely different, no doubt.


Then again they are all so utterly shit that if they were trying to help a side they'd probably lose them the game.

Suits me no end to see that.

Hopefully Cole and Vunipola realise how much work is needed, as do the other players.

Georg are a fantastic scrummaging unit. I hope the backs work they got helps them in the following games. :thumbup:

Looks like it was a useful exercise - and they seemed to be getting to grips with the Georgian scrum, eventually.

Wonder if we'll see any benefits against Scotland.

Rugby is the main sport in Georgia is it not? Will be interesting to see how they go against Italy later in the year.

The England scrum looked a lot stronger when Cole was packing down instead of Williams. There's a touch of Kieran Brookes about Williams - massive unit but a bit of a jelly spine.

More broadly, it can't be good for our boys' testosterone levels to be brutalised by a bunch of Georgian wrestlers three days after beating Wales. Shades of Johnno's wrestling camps before RWC'11.

Soccer football is but they’re supposedly trying to make rugby the main sport. A lot of investment being put in.

Well, they shredded Georgia in the scrum towards the end.

Not good for the egos but training harder than you play is no bad thing.

We are just a mediocre scrummaging side at the moment.

Who gives a monkeys what geographical part of planet earth he is from, it’s irrelevant in the context of the conversation. What’s relevant is he’s from Ireland not England. Now how about developing your own refs.

We do. He lives in England and chose to work for an available employer. Tedious argument.

Good video, interesting to see which front 5 combinations struggled. While I worry about the level of work Eddie makes these guys do it seems pretty canny and must be good for Georgia too.

Seeing as this conversation started with Wayne Barnes that's a pretty weird route to take, especially when mentioning relevancy

The one scrum that England won, featured the Georgian first choice front row looking on from the sideline.

That’s worrying footage for England

No shame in being battered by the Georgian scrum ..... but I would be worried about the fact that itoje can’t seem to push to save his life
