    Just found that Foxtel will have all premiership games this year, starting at 4.30 this Saturday morning with the Gloucester game.
    Bein channels have some of the Pro 12 (half the games each week I think)

    3 games a week, I think the 3 that BT chooses to cover, but I'm not sure.

    Leinster v Treviso, Scarlets v Munster and Connacht v Glasgow this week.

    Last two should be good, crap choice on the friday night fixtures though, the Italians plus the Dragons. Leinster is the best of a bad bunch, but maybe Blues v Edinburgh should have gotten a Friday night and Connacht v Glasgow the Saturday night

    Warren Gatland (Cementhead) announced as B & I Lions head coach.

    Rob Howley to take over as Wales' head coach in Cement's absence.

    Mike Ford to Toulon anyone? (What a giggle that'd be) Keep him away from the Physios though!

    Franks could learn a thing or two from the French.

    Interesting to read in that article "Ashton received a 10 week ban last season for putting his hand near the eyes of Luke Marshall during a European Champions Cup match against Ulster." SANZAAR citing officials take note; HTF Franks wasn't at least cited I'll never know.

    What we rugby supporters want from officials is consistency; in this case they weren't.

    Suspended for 14 weeks:

    Ashton got 13 for the biting incident:

    http://www.planetrugby.com/news/13-week-ban-for-ashton/

    Without wanting to second-guess the judiciaries involved, 13 seems about right for biting esp when the guy has prior form for this kinda shit, but 14 for gouging is way too lenient. Entry point is 12 weeks, mid-range is 18 & I'd rate this as high-end so should have started at 24 weeks plus or minus based on prior record etc.
