Re: 2 weeks to go, let's thank the Band - PR Visitors Book

Hello all. Thanks to those who have made this a great place to visit. I rather like the comment about the "lifeboat" given I'm a member of the RNLI and a Yachtmaster Ocean". I hope the new site will continue in the same vein as here. I wish you all well. God bless. I hope you'll be joining us on NPR?

Re: Rugby has become a complete utter borefest.

There's an even simpler solution which is to bring back rucking. If players on their feet were allowed to kick f*ck out of anyone lying on the wrong side of the ruck or with their hands all over the ball, pretty much all the problems being described here would go away.
