What is so funny about that. He was a decent young player at Quims and his parting gift was delicious.

6 TRYs in 6 matches and man of the match tonight. I just wish he was playing fly-half.

Why? England needs fullbacks - got loads of 10s.

He can transform our game and it would be madness to use our best fly-half as a full-back. That's to English

He's not even the best English 10 in his age group, or even the third best, Smith, Umaga and Vunipola are better options plus there is also Simmonds. Fullback however, he might already be the best. Plus as a proper playmaker he can still go to first receiver in a split field.

Going to ask, do we think Spencer is nearly ready for international rugby, alternating with Youngs?

I watched Maunder yesterday and thought he was fantastic at times controlling the game.

With Young’s? Shit no, with Robson or one of the youngsters maybe.
Though I’m sure Young’s will somehow get his 100th cap

You had total dominance in the scrum, and they had 14 men. How much more do you want before your pizza?

Eccentric refereeing performance. Doesn't seem to have got the memo on the new breakdown interpretations - he was constantly waiting for the jacklers to survive the clearout.

Poor start to the season but scooping up the BP wins before lockdown, so no. Quins on the other hand...

We are not in the playoffs but whatever reason we were off our game I don't care. As for covid. We were fighting Tigers for relegation one week then 3 weeks later we were up to 4th. Do you not follow the premiership ?

Wasps sacked Dai Young in February and the very next game they put 60 points on Sarries then 36 points on Irish and 39 points on Gloucester. Lockdown came at a very bad time for Wasps. Just as they were flying. They went into lockdown in 5th place. You can and probably will continue with your nonsense but that is your prerogative.

Don't understand that. Forearm smash to the head results in nothing because his hand hit the shoulder a millisecond earlier?
