Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

Think it might have been quashed now anyway.

Although Jamie Gibson has see definitely left, seemingly without a club lined up. Sign of the times I guess, that someone like him isn't walking straight into a new gig.

Sure there will be a little more to the story, so will be interesting to see how it plays out.

He'll definitely be the cheap option for Gloucester (perhaps a little less so now), but he does seem to be on the right track. So many variables though and he'll need a little luck to succeed.

Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

So Gloucester announced Skivington as head coach this evening. LI just released this. Not sure what the angle here is, but doesn't look great by Gloucester on the face of it. Perhaps looking to use a COVID reduction in salary as an initial breach by LI. Who knows though https://www.london-irish.com/...

For sure. Long long way from any election and a lot could go wrong, but I'd vote for him as it stands. Would be the first time I've voted Labour since 2001.

Starmer was struggling on schools, Covid and teaching unions. Perhaps RLB was his problem and this was a great excuse to eliminate her.

She was given the chance to take it down, but started dicking about talking about statements of clarification.

He's at a point where he can consolidate and RLB has given him the perfect opportunity to get rid of the Corbyn legacy on the front bench.

Those figures are pretty weird.

If you checked if a random (non self isolating) group of 174 people were at home at any one time, you'd surely expect more than 13 to be in. Do people not hang out in their own houses over there? What kind of demographic are we looking at?
