The Rugby Club Plays of the Week 2012 - Groovy Baby

Love watching these, far more entertaining than the shite we display up here in the NH. (apart from the french which is as close to SH quality rugby we have)

Wales looking strong after solid win over Scotland

Yea, the refing was awful for both sides. Well we can agree to disagree, you won anyway so who cares :-)

Wales looking strong after solid win over Scotland

Just read a great post on the Scotsman site -

If you're worried about the centres there is an easy solution. Start with a backrow of BarclayRennieDenton and Harley on the bench. Put McInally in the 12 jersey and either Fusaro or the GingaNinja Grant in the 13 jersey. Et voila, a pair of centres who can run, catch, pass and tackle everything that moves :-D


Think this guy's on to something! Were Jonnie Beattie and Richie Vernon not two of the fastest runners in the Glasgow squad? That would be some 12 & 13!

It was Barclay and he was fine where he was. The Scots got pinged plenty for holding on, which I would say is a far easier law to enforce so how could they have gotten away with it? The offences the Welsh were guilty of are much harder for the ref to spot so while I was complaining about them doing it, I do congratulate them on their superior streetwise-ness, lots of other teams do it. If anything Scotland need to learn from other teams how to live right on the edge of the law and get away with it.

My wife thinks I should be a rugby commentator, but there's no way I could keep a cool unbiased head!
Unlike my old school pal Master Cotter, or the fantastic Johnathan Davies! ;-)

jog1986- Rubbish! 'On their feet' means 'on their feet' not using another body to support your own bodyweight, in otherwords ref'd strictly. just one knee touching the body of a player on the floor means their 'off their feet' therefore cannot play the ball. It rarely is ref'd strictly however..........

And how the feck did the Welsh openside get away with coming in at the side just before H'penny's first try? If you're not sure when, its at 1:42 in the highlights

It was the 'hands in the ruck' offences they seemed to be getting a way with (England and Waleas) Against Wales you can clearly here Sean Lamont near the end of the game shouting at the ref 'their hands are all over it! in an extremely exasperated manner, like it had been going on all game. As far as the 'knock-on' it looked fine to me in real time, never mind in slo-mo, think he should have been given the benefit of the doubt, still very looking forward to seeing more of Hogg, he does look a class act.Agree with other posters re we should blood even more young players, they're the future and need experience while they're young not once they've aged a bit. Our 1st XV is made up of loads of kids now and the team is doing better than ever! Lets be honest, you'll never be as fit as you were when you were 18!

Pretzel, have a closer look at Jacobsons 'knock on', infact look at what Gethin Jenkins was up to! Wales got away with murder the whole match, but that probably just makes them more 'street wise' than us, and this has always been the case, with the exception of Nathan Hines although big Jim Hamilton is pretty much stepping into his shoes lately! Anyway apart from them pretty much no other member of the team has the ability to 'play the ref'. Mike Phillips prime example, ive often called him a cheating bas**** but he GETS AWAY WITH IT, and there are guys like him the world over (pros and amateur) I'm not saying we should start cheating to win games but it does feel like we lose a lot of games with that going on! (England were at it and you can guarantee the French and Irish will be at it too. The Italians will try to but their street wise-ness is on a par with ours)
