What Rugby Gave Me, John Goldman

I was going to say, I've never had the pleasure of being part of a club that sports such an interesting blazer...

I'd say it's slightly less hideous than the father in laws cricket blazer....

tbf.... if Owens told the Irish they weren't allowed to touch the ball, you'd still moan he was biased...

Italy ruck tactics bemuse England and agitate coach Eddie Jones

Tbf Oliver, listening to half the referees round the world bastardise the English language with their heathen tongues, I'd say most of the British teams are already suffering that fate...

Italy ruck tactics bemuse England and agitate coach Eddie Jones

I know England played poor in the first half, but I can't help think that it was both directly and indirectly linked to Italy's tactics....

Firstly England went out onto the field with a game plan, it was to put big points into Italy, and Italy instead of tucking the ball up when they got it and trying to play close "it's our ball" rugby, they starting 'giving' it back to England?!?! This must have firstly been a little strange and a hint something was off, then they sort of went "ok, give it to us and we'll use it" only to find that when Care picks up the ball he has no one to pass it to...

From that point onwards mistakes were made in the managing of the game and the reacting to Italys tactics, but it certainly threw the English players, knocked them out of their comfort zone and id imagine their heads being so spun caused them to stuff up the rest of their game management....

You say England effectively ruined Italy from half time onwards, better than Wales did.... But England are clearly better than Wales...And playing at home..so they should in theory have put more points on Italy.. perhaps we'd be looking at 60+ points if Italy hadn't pulled a fast one.

How funny, aside from position and weight I'd say we are quite similar....

Although I think I may be able to squeeze in a 5th Nation out of the 6, and I have another one further a field...

The Best Tries from the opening round of Super Rugby 2017

Makes me wonder if they're not particularly well versed in purchasing the stuff....

Am i right in suggesting they're very new to the French scene? Maybe they figured "what happens in France stays in France" and it could be fun to dabble in something they've not tried before?

Then again Bieber strikes me as a potential coke head...
