its like when they broke up The Shield in the WWE

think also the English players go full time/leave school earlier than Irish counterparts so theyre further along the (screening) process
but
said this before but the % of England internationals who played u20 for England is a good bit lower than Irish equivalent

Update

Sale have sacked Tom Arscott

Northampton are playing Bedford Blues in Bedford tonight to make up for the gap in Bedfords fixture schedule left by London Welsh. We give the English clubs some stick but it's great to see one local club looking after another.

:D I'm a bit behind the curve. I absented myself from the board for a few days whilst 'issues' were being ironed out with some threads.

No it was Mike Williams. He had a photo of Mauger and a few players and the comment was "we've lost a good man".

PRL flying kites like billy-o today

Currie Cup sides to join Anglo Welsh cup; would mean scarpping Vodacom Cup they currently play in while super rugby is on and an way match in that would probably cost best part of €100k to field a team

And theyve gotten their shorter Lions tour but are basically angling for a North v South Ryder Cup style thing instead. If that doesnt make you puke as a rugby fan.... not to mention lack of viability

Bath boys letting their hair(and trousers) down.
[url]Home Rugby English Rugby Post-Training Drinking Session Sees Quarter Of Bath Squad Facing Wrath Of Management [Report]

In a somewhat bizarre development at Bath rugby, up to one quarter of the squad face disciplinary actions following a post-training drinking session that got out of hand at the Rec.

According to the Bath Chronicle, players were given permission to enjoy some pizza and a few beers in moderation last Tuesday. It seems, however, that the inch they were given quickly became a mile as up to eleven of the squad now find themselves facing a disciplinary hearing at the club, with allegations of antics that include running across the pitch naked, setting off a fire alarm and interrupting a skills co-ordination workshop for children.

Following the incident, Bath Rugby released a statement on the matter,

“Bath Rugby is currently addressing the events at the Recreation Ground last week, which involved a small group of players from the club.

“The appropriate conduct of all players and staff is highly important to the club and disciplinary hearings with those involved will take place in the coming days.

“The matter will be addressed appropriately as part of that process.”[/url]
I hope the naked thing and the "interrupting a skills co-ordination workshop for children" thing were two separate things.

Back to the good old days of traditional old rugby antics, it's pretty positive that some traditions have remained in the professional era.
