He just keeps on goin n goin, some man.


And he'll be joining back up with Donncha O'Callaghan, who's a little over a year younger than him!!

Saracens complaining they might have to ditch some English players to stay within the salary cap, poor souls run at a loss so they want to run at an even bigger loss now.

Chapeau to Tim O'Connor on twitter for this but basically Brexit devaluing Sterling means Prem budgets effectively €2 million less than they were v French budgets

England players know if they leave England they dont play for England. They already get academy credits and EPS payments. Its a load of sloblocks about competing for foreign players

Good luck to Saracens trying to keep all those players. They can't complain though because they've always raided other teams for their best young players and it highlights a problem of developing players in England where theres little loyalty. I'm sure London irish have one of the best academies in England but they're wasting their money if they can't hold onto them.

And Leeds/Yorkshire Carnegie.. one of the top academies apparently but can't keep a player.

Bristol Rugby will not have a club captain this year head coach Pat Lam revealed today.Instead Lam will name a captain each week when he announces the team.

This will be genius if they are doing well and the reason they are losing if they are not doing well.

Without much about their leadership cadre its a good idea. England could do with following it

If Bristol don't get straight back up I'd say their squad will disappear quickly, sure the only draw was the money and Lam now the money is between 10-20% less then what they expected thanks to Brexit

Sweet Jebus.. I think Kitson actually believes what he writes.

If you don't want to read, basically it's a knee jerk to loads of tries scored, no player bans and club soccer conicidentally not being on at the weekend.

My jaysus, that's Thornley writing about Munster circa 2006 levels of sycophancy.

How clever of the Premiership, as well, to commence this season on a weekend with no Premier League or Championship football. Suddenly there were highlights during news bulletins and prominent mid-afternoon Saturday live radio commentaries on BBC 5Live. An excited caller to Simon Mayo’s Radio 2 show even phoned from Gordano services on the M5 on Friday to request a song for his mates en route to Gloucester v Exeter Chiefs


This actually reads like satire! The Gordano services no less!
