Rugby 2016/17


#3587

Would be mad to change now.


#3588

Jones might walk if the media grates him too much.


#3589

Not on the money he’s on … chance of the sack and a pay-off … he’s not gonna walk anywhere …


#3590

Fair point.


#3591

Even though the wheels seem to have come off?


#3592

Leinster looking to replace the gap left by Isa … If he contributes half as much as Isa did, Joe Tomane will be a huge success


#3593

He could become Tomane man …


#3594

Hammered by Scotland in U20 WC … now facing an 11/12th place play- off v Japan or Georgia … what the actual f*ck loike as Ross might say …


#3595

Would that be the same team so many were convinced would inevitably go on to dominate once they got rid of Lancaster?

:wink:


#3596

Well they did win two six nations titles on the trot? Handy enough. We call rugby our national sport when we win one in a row.

Looks like Sexton is not a fan of trying things out beeko


#3597

There’s no escaping that the U20s this year are poor.


#3598

Indeed and they did. That was the two years with Ireland in transition, Wales in decline, and France as bad as they’ve been in 40 years. They still lost the Slam against us, and have not had to play the ABs in two years, luckily for them… We won a Slam the year after they had won two championships, and with Feance and Eng away.


#3599

Yet we should have beaten the hosts in the opener … who beat New Zealand yesterday … and who are now in the final v England … with quintessential Frenchman Daniel Brennan.


#3600

Traditionally England are always pants after a Lions tour.


#3601

Not to worry…we’ll get a head start on getting the sub U20’s over from SA and NZ and convert them into national hero’s…


#3602

Very hard to understand the French accent sometimes.


#3603

France should beat nz all the time


#3604

France should be split.

Some game that between the Boks and the chariots


#3605

Good win in Oz - hearing they were filthy


#3606

Not filthy…conceded a lot of penalties mainly for offside, deliberate knock ins etc
