Re: Leicester's publicity assault on new neighbours continue

I guess it's all relative. I like Coventry mostly. The ring road is a nightmare for both navigator & driver if you're not a native but I reckon we'll get the hang of it eventually. I like that the city centre is compact, I like the market with it's three fishmongers and veg stalls selling stuff I ca...

Re: What do you plan/hope to do when you retire from work

Re: Wasps v Saints

Reffing has been pretty poor all round. I don't think we've had a clean scrum this half and it seems like he is guessing and lacks control. He's a chump. Ruined last year's fixture when he sent Hughes off unfairly then changed his story. Wrong ref. Need to fact check your whinging. Indeed. That was...
