I caught a chat on this issue at half time during the Cardiff blues Connacht game. What made me laugh was the fatalism. Yeah it's boring but nothing could be done! Jonathan Davies just said well league has 4 less players on the pitch without actually suggesting any changes to union! Curious

 

That's the worrying thing for me, the four extra men bit.  If the rah rahs decided to 'make a change' to their rules and get rid of the two extra back rowers 'to free up a bit of space on the pitch' then I guess we are headed toward the hybrid game.  The yawnion journos then go into overdrive to tell us that it was always thus.  A little bit 'Animal Farm -ish'

I'd like to see you all try to spin that into any kind of positive publicity if that had happened.

Can somebody, anybody explain in simple language, without displaying their masters degree in English Grammar and Spelling why just about all sensible threads on TotalRL.com descend into anarchy? 

 

I only come onto the main board about once a week out of season and find, as I pick my way through the various threads that may be of interest, that things often go to rat's muck very quickly.

Great defence, fast inventive attacking.

 

Good crowd.

Outside alcohol bar is going to need sorting for the summer evenings though.
