Rugby Union 6 Nations 2021

The Welsh are obviously terrible people for having a nasty bully like Alun Wyn Jones as captain. Eddie Jones thinks he should be more gentle on the England boys tomorrow.

England boss is not talking to his squad, he is talking to the referee and TMO!

Jones just highliting what a gobby twat AWJ is on the field. And before you get your knickers all scrunched up, he is no more a gobby twat than Farrell. Between the two of them the ref should consider wearing ear defenders as a health and safety issue!
 
No doubt about it, AWJ can whine with the best of them. Every country has at least one. Biggar is worse for whining tbf, so maybe AWJ is not quite in the top rank.

But that’s not what Eddie is on about here. He is concerned that nasty AWJ says things to his delicate little England players that make them totally lose control and either get carded, or have to get hooked early to avoid getting carded (Mr Sinckler being a case in point).

Eddie shouldn’t be moaning to the press about this, he should be sorting his ill disciplined players out and making them exercise a bit of self discipline. Opposition players do say things to wind each other up, at every level of the game. It’s not illegal either. If Sinckler and co, as experienced internationals, haven’t twigged that yet and learned how to deal with it then maybe Eddie should be looking to select some other players who are a bit more robust.

Meanwhile I haven’t heard him suggesting that the ref should be watching out for any of his players tickling AWJ’s bollocks. But maybe there’s nothing wrong with that in Eddie’s book.

It’s just Eddie being a cock pre-match as per usual.
 
Same old script, being recited by the same old clowns, did EJ shag your mums?
Yeah, nothing to see here. Nobody should be allowed to comment on current stories in the media. Are you sure there aren't discussions in the Boris Grr thread that you should be shutting down?

You must be a hoot at parties.

You never did answer the question if you played Rugby did you? You aren't discussing you are whining, as usual. There's two other posts which are discussion you might want to read them.
 
And another Red at the AJ Bell. Deserved too no matter how much Jack Nowell drips like a septic minge on Twitter about it

Do you honestly think that what EJ says publically is for the benefit of his players?
Let me clarify that by saying it is to destract the press from having a go at his players. EJ is very good at deflecting the spotlight from the individuals. I know this is bad form on a rugby thread but Mohrinho and Fergusson were/are very good at that also and they have won lots of silverware.
 
Sounds like the FFR could be dans le merde if they didn't enforce the protocols.

'Sports minister Roxana Maracineanu has threatened to withdraw France's authorisation to play in the Six Nations if the French Rugby Federation (FFR) does not properly investigate the origin of a Covid-19 outbreak.

'France's game against Scotland was postponed after 11 French players, as well as staff, including head coach Fabien Galthie, tested positive for Covid-19 in the last week, prompting Maracineanu to ask for an investigation.

"I don't think it was written in the protocol that the players could go out to eat waffles," added Maracineanu, following reports that French players went out in Rome when they played Italy three weeks ago. "If they went out to eat waffles, they had to be re-tested when they re-entered the bubble. We want to know if this has been done because it is the conditions of re-entering and exiting the bubble that make it a bubble, by definition."

Well really there is not much rugby on! A very pedestrian game to date. Good end to the half from the 'Tallies.

I’ve played plenty Rugby, in four different countries, how ever that might be relevant. As regards whining, you might want to look at the plank in your own eye before commenting on the mote in others.

Anyway, the Rugby. The incompetence of this ref is only matched by his TMO. However, Ireland are way too good for Italy and I think they have another 30 points in them in the second half.
