Re: The best new and returning TV series of 2017?

Anyone watched Dirk Gently? 5 episodes in and really enjoying it...properly bonkers and pretty funny in places. Nothing like the books iirc (despite being a massive hitchhikers fan, the dirk gently ones never really made an impression). Season 1 or 2? Rewatched season 1 since it was so nuts I forgo...

Re: Corny films that are still great

Perhaps I have missed them but I would’ve thought that Independence Day and Armageddon would be top of the list, or are they just too shite? I think a movie that falls into that category is Misson to Mars. http://forum.planetrugby.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=82720&view=unread&sid=ffbbdf21b73e9413945af8...

Re: Cheika post-Joubert in 2015- the man is a hypocrite

I’ve got no problems with Cheika’s in-game demeanour. Everyone acts like a muppet during the game, it’s what’s they do afterwards that counts so, for example, having a dig at the referee in the tunnel is bang out of order.

Re: Unofficial England v. Australia match thread

His attitude pervades through the team. Take Beale’s yellow for instance, which was an obvious outcome to anyone that’s ever played the game, but Kurtley has the cheek to stand there arguing the toss before Cheika allegedly goes mental in the tunnel.

Thanks for the insights. When you say you have a "small" backs line I always associate that to incredible speed and fast pace change.

Re: Malcolm Marx.

Coles is nowhere near back to his level, the concussion saga has blunted his all round game.
