Three big bumps in latest edition of Smashed Em Bro!

It is definitely worth a mention, but as Dan said, RD was a basement or garage site with a cult of followers and it could post what it liked. Nowadays its full of promotions, advertisements and permissions etc.

....I suppose the same could be said of rugby itself...

...and from chaos comes order hahaha..

But I agree. Hughes truly did grow into that game - just did a little fact check, he has 3 caps for England... so coming into a starting position (I assume it's his debut starter!) at 8 - which is not exactly a shy position, with only 2 caps, starting only last month... so to see his progress within 80 minutes of the game was excellent.

He really got hammered early on, but rather than curling up and being worried about the next hit etc, he took advantage of it and learned from it. Currently Vunipola would still be my first choice for England 8, but it's probably safe to say that Hughes has the capability to nip right at Billy's heels.

Not as bad as you with the 'life and sole of the party" comment... But still bad!

Agree with im1 here. The head clash was 'interesting' (wrong word), but it's not something that is 'fun' or 'awesome', that I'd often associate with "smashed 'em bro"....

On the Hughes hit, he really needs to work on his body position overall, I genuinely thought he was going to be in for a try or at least get right in close until that brilliant tackle!

Of course I'm questioning his body position due to the fact I'm actually a pro player and coach and knower of all things rugby.... but as an international I guess it's something he'll learn quick!

Warren Gatland confirms British & Irish Lions coaching team for New Zealand tour

Not sure I'd pick SOB... He is a beast, but with his injury level i dont think he'll last 5 minutes.... I personally think he's too heavy, he did himself a number when he changed direction early this year/last year... I know it could happen to anyone, but I can't help feel that his heavy setness is playing havoc on his ligaments, muscles, tendons...

Is there room for Haskell?

I like the inclusion of J Gray, I think his work rate is immense.

I'd imagine this 6N is going to be killer for Lions positions... Will be interesting to see how Wales fair in the 6N and their numbers in the Lions... I can understand Gatland going with familiarities of players he knows, but I don't think it's acceptable...

Fair point about Farrell, I take that back, althougb, he is a bit a part of that England "centre smaaaaash" thing they tried a few years ago, and I hope he doesn't want to put that into the hat otherwise the choice of tactics isn't going to very interesting:
Gatland - Warrenball
Howley - yeessss maaaaster, Warrenball
Farrell - centre smash, otherwise known as Warrenball
Who knows what Borthwick will bring to the table...

...and im1...don't be silly, I'm far too qualified to suggest alternative selections, with my level of expertise I am able to criticise without offering solutions!

You are the one suggesting the outcome should be the indicator of the action and therefore the indication of card colour/punishment.... I'm simply throwing an example out there for you.

Just because you've never seen it doesn't mean it couldn't happen... 50m kicks were unseen before, now we have 60m kicks.....

So I'm throwing you an idea where the outcome isn't a bad outcome even though the intent is outrageous...

That's interesting actually. I often viewed BODs efforts as lateral or there abouts, but argued that in any case it would not matter as he regained control himself, but I didn't realise it would be potentially illegal...
