Re: Welsh trolls leave Sonja McLaughlin crying in her car

Broken record time, but BBC's presentation is a shambles. Year after year. Warburton is carrying it right now. Sonja is an arrogant gotcha-merchant, Martin is shit and can only talk about 'his day', Guscott is irrelevant now, the commentary has been done to death but Butler must be blind, and the o...

Re: When is a knock on, in slo mo not a knock on?

The ball was clearly knocked on, It hit his hand and touched Slades leg closer to the England try line despite being knocked back by his leg. The ball traveling relative to the ball carrier is irrelevant, were the ball starts traveling with forward momentum with the runner, with a knock-on the runne...

Re: That Jonny May try

Re: Italy - piss-off

Well, as a matter of fact, it's not a subject belonging to promotion or relegation, it's a normal "excursus" on the phenomenology of the game in Italy.

Re: Italy - piss-off

We need to grow the sport and not remain parochial. A set of European conferences perhaps when the teams sitting in the ERC have shown they are reasonably competitive.
