Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

Launchbury out injured. Joe Marler out- personal problems. Ewels in, Tom West in !!!!!!! I assume I'm not the only person not entirely sure who Tom West is - not to knock him, more to say this whole covid nonsense has left me totally out of touch with club rugby. Having watched him a fair old bit a...

Re: Coronavirus Thread. Virus v humans

Fair play to the government and the NHS, looks like they will hit their target of 15 million getting their first jab by mid February. This covers all over 70s, all health care workers and all people with underlying health conditions. 500,000 got their first jab yesterday. Superb effort! :thumbup:

Re: Six Nations in Paris only ?

Seems an idea to bring them all together for 6 weeks, but why on earth in france? Bringing in 150+ players and entourages from areas where the UK variant is prevalent into the Paris seems like a ridiculous idea. Add to that an artificial playing surface that may not be fit for test rugby. Twickenha...

Addicted to this event now! Every day is impossible to predict. Team UK looking most composed of the challengers but their grinders (only 6 versus 8 for the other crews) working very hard. Upside is more boat trimmers and tacticians which is paying dividends so far.
