  • Did someone spike their porridge?

    What is the world coming to? Scotland loose an international rugby match to the USA. Yes I know England lost to S Africa but S Africa is a recognised major rugby playing nation. the USA is not -yet

    Sure Ireland were beaten by Australia last week. We all under perform the odd time.
    While Scotland had a really bad day they have been consistently improving over the last few years and have two teams which do well in the most competitive club league in Europe. England are in complete disarray at the moment. The biggest player pool in the world and the most money and a squad of world class player; what's going on? Eddie Jones as an ass**** but he did have a reasonable pedigree as a coach. Is it the influence of the Clubs? Is it the lack of brains on the field? Is it the fact that Farrell just isn't captaincy material? You can't have Lancaster back; he's doing too good a job as assistant coach in Leinster.

        I think it's about national pride for most of them.
        Most of the Irish players could make much more money in England or France but they stay here so that they can play for Ireland (and in the case of the Leinster players so that they can win European medals).
