As I said, I hope posting this this makes you a much happier person, as I can't see any other reason for it. Certainly not to single out sinckler.
Crying into your Pimm's has blurred your vision mate. Obviously I've touched a nerve. I thought Farrell and Jones we're classy in the post match presser if that's any consolation for you.
Your just being a cvnt for no reason. No nerves touched, just can't see what pleasure youre taking it of it.

By the way ' Sinckler what a cvnt' was your original post title. Any reason you've changed that?
Is there a subset here who post for it's pleasure?
Wow, was the first title you chose really, "Sinckler what a cvnt"?
Just to save you the trouble
I've deleted Sinklers name from the title. Will give the benefit of the doubt that his protruding lower lip pout along with the shuffling feet and downward gazing along with the rapid removal of the medal like it had burnt him was all head knock induced.

Just seems odd that you would want to have a direct go at a player who had been knocked out stone cold just a few hours earlier. Or didn't you watch the match?

FWIW I do think they should have accepted the medals out of respect for the hosts and the occassion even if they are worthless padding by RWCL.

But I understand why they didnt and to an exten applaud the altitude.

They are literally no different than Olympic medals. You either are best, second best or third best and get the relevant medal. Not rocket science
Has there always been loser’s medals for RWC’s?

Either way, why do they even have them? People complain about kids having too many meaningless medals and yet many expect these professionals to stand there when incredibly disappointed and be handed a losers’ medal in front of everyone?

I’ve been on both sides as player and coach for school and club comps. When on the losing end, we did what we were ‘supposed to’, but why? It’s pointless gesture in team sport, I reckon. When we lost a premier final, we wanted to just leave but also wanted to let our friends on the other team have their moment to themselves. When we won it, we didn’t even notice them as we were so excited for each other. The losing team should be allowed to just go and console themselves.

I can only imagine it feels 10 times worse for pros who live for the sport to be standing in front of 30 times the people and in front of 300 times more on telly.
My thoughts exactly. I think the recognition is important inside the parameters of the values we teach in rugby, but let them file on past with a handshake and a plaque and take the focus off them quickly to let them deal with their disappointment with dignity.

When I saw Itoje refuse to let the silver touch his chest I said “yep, knew it. Vampire.”

Out of interest, can the other mods ban Openside for being regularly the most objectionable poster on the bored? it seems a bit unfair otherwise.

It can’t be any other reason than this vampire-werewolf theory because let’s be fair there can’t be much else than these runner up medals in England’s trophy cabinet at the moment so any trinkets should be considered most welcome.

It was reacting to his initial thread title. Which he subsequently changed, so I feel the comment was justified. :thumbup:

They should get rid of bronze and silver medals at the world cup.

Oh and get rid of the pointless 3rd place play off while you're at it. The players are knackered enough already without forcing them to play meaningless tests.

Agreed, either have a sevens type format that has all teams playing for a final place or scrap it.

That said, it was a nice why see off some retiring players this time.

It also shows disrespect to the other 18 teams who played at the RWC, and who would have loved to get a medal of any colour. Lose with dignity chaps.

Just accept it with grace at the time and then write a letter to World Rugby outlining why the losers medals are unnecessary, get the whole team to sign it.

Indeed, a disgraceful childish reaction. I thought better of the players. What kind of message is that? It’s pathetic.

Its alright for your boys, they've got the rest of the year off.

The Welsh players will be playing for their clubs next week, and Wales next match is in 28 days time. The ride never ends.

The Welsh 'play' for their clubs in the way French lorry drivers go to work.

They'll be dossing about as usual for the regions until the 6N starts.

Amazing reaction to this whole medal-rejecting thing.

It's been absolutely commonplace in football for years.

Yes, Itoje showing his real colours a week after a one off match winning display. SA did to England what they had done to NZ the previous week. The kiwis displayed pure class after their loss, which was a much bigger upset.

Ah.

Well, no. But Olo mentioned their "class" in defeat, and did not mention medals. Personally I don't think players should really give a toss about medals. SBW keeps giving his away.
