What people also forget is that he also played age grade for Scotland before he played age grade for England.I see he has chosen Scotland after age grade in England.
IIRC also eligible for France as he was born there when dad was playing abroad.
Ah yes, the 'Hampshire Vunipolas'.....What people also forget is that he also played age grade for Scotland before he played age grade for England.
Funny how we always get criticised for picking players born in England, or in this case France. If you point this out, of course, you get told ‘but they learned their rugby in England’.
Educated at Royal High School and the Edinburgh Dental College, Fisher played his club rugby for Royal High and London Scottish. He also represented Edinburgh, the Army, Combined Services and the BarbariansKnow of him, RADC and Scotland.
Think he played for one of the Border clubs when they were the main domain of Scottish rugby
I'm glad it is a harsh penalty.Update
The big winger, who used to play for Stade Francais, faced a disciplinary hearing last night, and has subsequently been banned for five weeks.
The LNR committee charged him with disrespecting the authority of an official as well as ‘action against a game official’.
It would be nice if the Club or Country also were seen to be taking a dim view of such goings on.I'm glad it is a harsh penalty.
The ref is the law on a rugby pitch and should be treated as such. It is part and parcel of the whole rugby ethos.
We have seen some elements of disrespect creeping in over the past few years and recently we had Sinkler actually swearing at the ref and his decision! Once rugby allows this dissent to happen without punishment it will quickly descend into football levels of abuse. Red cards and match bans for all abuse and make the players and coaching staff aware of the zero tollerance approach.
That said fans are allowed to criticise every decision made especially if it's Roman Poite!
