    1. Coming from the man whop rejected the opinion of other international experts in the area who weren't being paid by the ABs, that's a bit ****ing rich.

    Re: Rugby 12s

    If the players sign up for it, I don't want to hear any moaning about being overplayed.

    This may be tricky to get off the ground with players who are centrally contracted,

    Yeah, I had that as orange in my head and I wouldn't have faulted either decision.

    I think we may be at risk of concentrating on the wrong issues.

    Highly impressive last night, as he usually is.

    He has mastered the art of letting the captains know that they have been heard without allowing it to become a bitchfest or interfere with the...

    **** me. I can understand lack of intent, but to argue it wasn't reckless strikes me as...well, let's say odd. I don't want to inadvertently libel anyone.

    Oh, I watched that whole debacle live, and Ian's right. Australia were so bad the local U12 blind school could have beaten them. NZ actually improved the points difference when down to 14.

    TBH, in my head it isn't a 'spirit of the game' question.
    If that happened live, I wouldn't count for 7, in the same way that of they call "5" I don't check the throwing team. I just count the...

    Perhaps OB can help me out here, because I disagree with Ian and his stance on rotation.

    Two incidents for me. One blindingly obvious, the other confusing.

    Jordie Barrett (who, with his brother, account for 33% of AB red cards) sent off for doing a Hastings. Went up to collect a high...

    Re: Where are you this weekend - 2021/22?

    That's a great question.

    On balance, no. I think the only reason they close the points they did in the previous games was because NZ took their foot off the pedal, and Australia just decided to go...

    Which Bledisloe were you watching? The last 20 were good; the last 40 acceptable. The first 40 was abject beyond words in every way.

    Yeah, I meant GLDK - I had just escaped a different argument about 50/22.

    A law is only as good as how it plays out - we just found, to my mind, a serious flaw. A 22 would be fairer to the defense...
