    Religion and culture have always existed in close relationship to one another. He turned to the Pentecostal faith because his family share those beliefs. In turn, most Pentecostals believe in a...

    More power to him, I say. Let me raise the money and blow it on legal fees. Will it prove he is a better person? No. The way I see it poverty is a big issue in Tonga right now. For various...
  3. Re: IRFU issue statement confirming sanction of player

    I suspect a fine for bringing the game into disrepute. London Irish are going to have some brat pack next season.
  4. Re: IRFU issue statement confirming sanction of player

    Wrong about any sevens squad involvement. Not so far off about the post match celebrations though.
    Ireland flanker Sean O’Brien has been sanctioned by the IRFU following an incident that occurred...

    No details. Just an intriguing statement.

    Captain Billy Dardis picked up a yellow card late on in the match. But...

    Looks like a breach of T&C to me. How much clearer could they be? That, and they «*deem, at their sole discretion*». They deemed it breached Terms, so our opinions on that point are beside the...

  9. [Tackle] Re: Wales v All Blacks U20 - how is this not a red card?

    It’s possible that the U20 match officials had agreed on a different emphasis prior to the Championship.
    Certainly looked that way, winning hearts and minds as opposed to laying down the law.

    I threw the TV out in 1995. Even if I still had one I’d only use it for watching live Rugby matches.
