Re: The official Lions 2021 thread

Really not convinced that AWJ can possibly be fully fit. If he is and is playing well then fair play but can't see how it's possible.

Re: Wallabies v France July Tests

Aus are in trouble if they are going to keep defending close in like that.

France seem to be driving the defenders way past the ruck though

It's not clumsy wording, it's clickbait.

They are putting a headline that comes across as racist so people click on it, and then hiding behind the article which is a po-faced discussion about how terrible racism is.

Re: It's coming home TODAY !!!

I maintain they should always have defenders take penalties, they don't have any notions about their abilities and just blast it for the bottom corner, which works almost all the time. A penalty shootout in a major tournament isn't the time to get all fancy. Rashford's penalty is a good example of t...
