Interesting looking film on a rugby theme
A fairly niche film with lots of comment about everyone wanting to be the ball carrier I guess... I bet the changing room doesn't smell of horse liniment afterwards anyways..

Any road up... only just caught the highlights of the Exeter/Saints game where the conversion was charged down in the dying seconds of the game. Ref says it's valid as the player had "he moved his shoulders.... he started his sequence" What does this mean for Dan Biggar's sequence? Start of the epileptic fit or end? Is the 'sequence' for Farrell the start of his 20x death stare at the posts? There was a law clarification to Law Eight in that "The moment the kicker moves in any direction it is deemed that he is ‘approaching to kick.’ The reason for this interpretation is simplicity, otherwise the referee would have to judge when the kicker first moves, and in what direction. It would also be open to misinterpretation by players, match officials and spectators.’" (In fairness Rob Baxter didn't make much of a fuss about it)

It looked like the ref was dying for a pee and wanted off the park toot-sweet! :)

Was that not Craig Joubert's excuse when he ran off the pitch after giving Australia That penalty

I watched the full game yesterday, and what an enthralling match it was albeit played on a very muddy pitch. And what a conclusion, full marks to Saints who never gave up.

I have to say, the Gallagher Premiership is good value for money from this fan.

Sale Ladies v Quins Ladies being live streamed tomorrow, should be decent. One of my players is on the bench for Quins.

It will probably be two in a row for Quins women but beating Exeter tonight is more than enough Alex Sanderson really is proving his worth already (even though the last 5 minutes left me with no nails)

Quins women were lucky last week...they were poor. Unfit, awful team selection. Wasps were the better side. Poor Gerard has been found out as Karen's puppet and it's showing....

Agree on Sanderson, he's got them playing some very very nice stuff!
 
World Rugby have announced this evening they are recommending the postponement of Women's Rugby World Cup 2021, scheduled to be hosted in New Zealand between September 18 – October 16, until next year.

Not what the BBC reported. They said the Rugby World Cup was being postponed from this year and I thought, 'But the Lions Tour is this year, not the World Cup.' Had to look at the accompanying photograph to see what they actually meant.
