Re: Is Owen Farrell the most hated man in rugby?

I think HATE is a much too strong a word. He tends to get under the skin (like Biggar) with his constant moaning, but,the main reason I think he is unpopular, is because he doesn`t seem to know how to tackle (unlike Biggar), he seems to rely on shoulder charges, and gets away with it far to often. ...

Sarries - Sale yesterday was pretty decent considering the conditions. Manu Vunipola potted a penalty from the half way line after Sale managed to give away a ten point score - a converted try and then I believe that McGuigan smashed Segun late after he'd scored and was penalised.

I've had a quick read through, and some of Sarries arguments are really daft in the context of the regulations. They're clear, for example, that a loan must be paid back within the same year if you don't want it counted against the cap. So therefore, I'd assume that means it's a dreadful idea to mak...
