Well that and the fact that's its about what a sh!t hole Coventry is (was).

Just realised you didn't get my response before, and despite doing me a favour here it stands!

Wasps and Leicester currently doing battle in lovely Coventry on BT.

Tigers ahead 28-25 with 50 mins gone despite being a man down.

It's not really, it's about urban decay in all of Britain's cities, in particular Liverpool and Glasgow. The Specials were on tour when the song was written and witnessed particular incidences of decay, violence and poverty in both cities and the Brixton riots were ongoing as the lyrics were being finalised and the song recorded.

For sure. A massive hit at the time, it very much summed up the zeitgeist of the early-Thatcher-era in Blighty.

Le Roux back for Wasps this week.

I wonder will he go back down to SA or stay up.

Important player for them but could be wrecked by the time we welcome them to RDS.

Fabulous player. Was great in the Boks' victory last week vs NZ.

According to the Grauniad's Robert Kitson, we'd want to keep an good eye on Danny Cipriani too, who apparently has been playing sublimely the last few weeks:

Hang on, he's an inconsistent player. He was terrible for Wasps for most of last season.

Just bin looking up travel options for Toulouse (predictions for the score - Toulouse to lose. ba dum tish!) and there's not much showing up on sky scammer.
It's a new destination for me, any suggestions?
Am tempted to wait for OLSC charter info.

Montpellier beat Toulouse 66-15 in the Top 14 this afternoon. Toulouse fielded a very callow side and were already 21-3 down when their no.4 was red carded for a tip tackle in the 17th minute.

Bath seem to be in a bit of a state. They've released a statement saying that Booth and another coach are leaving at the end of the season, and that Blackadder has signed an extension but will be replaced by Stuart Hooper after that. I think the statement was meant to provide certainty but to me it just looks like they're a mess.

Good venue but Italy gets shafted again.
I wonder are the hotels in Marseille already triple price?
