    I think we got to remember the Reds/Tah etc first game back, a little like that a bit scratchy, and having a little problem adjusting to coorect ruck laws being used, it was ok. I would be disappointed if not some improvement a couple of weeks down track.

    I have a confession: I've been listening to a few english rugby podcasts recently and their derision of Aus Rugby is pretty unpalatable. Every game they watch they say is stupid rugby/poor to watch etc etc. Pretty much Aus rugby is the laughing stock for them. Now a lot of the criticism might be deserved but I thought I'd treat myself to a game from apparently the best rugby competition in the world, Premiership Rugby.

    I chose a game between two of the best teams in the competition, Bristol v Saracens. The lineups had talent Australian teams could only dream of. Bristol, captained by Luatua, had a backline of two Piutaus, the best rugby player on the planet Semi Radradra and running rugby specialist Luke Morahan. The Saracens had essentially the English forward pack in two Vunipolas, Itoje and Jamie George.


    One penalty try. That was it, that was all that excitement could muster up. It came from a 4th time repeated maul in the 76th minute. Before that was some of the most brain dead, stupid rugby I've ever seen. It looked like they were actively avoiding making a line break.

    Yeah, yeah I'm coming into this saltier than some shit overcooked fish n chips from Brighton, but screw England, screw England rugby and dear god I hope we spank them next time we meet.

    Northern hemisphere club rugby has always been insipid - but they like different things up there.

    LOL, having an all gaijin coaching staff and half their squad ring-in gaijin has turned around and bitten them in the arse.

    Hey guys, you could front up to an international tourney with a team of actual Japanese people and see how you go...
