Re: The multiplication of red cards in rugby because of the new laws about head tackling

Players should stop flying into rucks recklessly, then they wont get sent off for it. Refs should also be more strict on enforcing the existing laws around rucks as well. This. I always wonder, when they are targetting a player who is head down over the ball, what part of his body they think they a...

Re: New Zealand...fvcked

Remarkable. Europe, the UK and Ireland can’t close, control or otherwise manage their borders. They can and have done already. Italy had the door pretty firmly shut in its face by its neighbours and it was very restricted access. A number of other EU countries also put strict restrictions on their ...

Re: Cricket: Australia vs India TEST SERIES

Have the Indian complained about Smith scratching around? It's not like he did it during an over or anything and I doubt it pissed Pant off who, going on the video, asked the umpire for his guard as any batsman does at the start of a session. Exactly. Smith is in his own world and I've never seen a...

England won, can't deny the ref was bad for both sides, yet favourable to England overall. I now know what All Black's fans feel like.

Re: Fozzie Out

Not sure it's all Fozzies fault. After about 55 minutes you could see the Argies were knackered but the ABs still resorted to plan A and kicked when there was no need. There doesn't seem to be any leaders on the pitch that can change tatics with out a half time break

If NZ goes it alone, I reckon we are a team short. I reckon 6 teams is the minimum to run a comp, and even that is quite small.
