Ah, you are doing irony again. How jolly original.

Thanks for appreciating my post TT but I wasn't employing irony.  I was simply pointing out the irrelevant, if not vaccuous, nature of your post.

So you admit that the england league side are as deficient in basic skills as the Wallabies. On that we both can finally agree.

In a tackle situation there are two basic skills on show and only one can prevail.  The defender either makes the tackle or the attacker evades and / or breaks the tackle.  Simples.  You brought up tackling.  The discussion was about passing.  If you can't pass then you are lacking a basic skill.  Do keep up.

Trojan has ignored the evidence that contradicts his/her original point. I have answered his point. I have said no such thing, you can use whatever phrases you want to classify people, I have no wish to control what you say. I just wish you would answer points made that show errors in your arguments or counter arguments.

No he hasn't - you have.  I know I can use whatever legitimate phrases I wish to use.  Not sure why you had to mention it at all.  As usual, you get the wrong end of the stick and then build an argument around that.  Very strange.

Billy Boston: " in his first match for the Royal Signals just one day after arriving at Catterick, he scored 37 points himself.  In another he scored 8 tries, when the Royal Signals won the Army Cup in 1953, he accounted for 6 of his sides 8 tries.  In a full season of Army Rugby Union he scored 126 tries."

The Welsh selectors should have been begging him to turn out for Wales.  They weren't. Why?

dhw will struggle to answer that.  Apparently, we are not allowed to use the word "black" to describe, erm, "black" players.

So you are implying that "black" (your word not mine) players take significantly longer to develop their RL skills than "non-white" players do. With this you yourself are displaying the  same prejudices that you claim never existed in RL despite evidence to the contrary. given how talented most of those players were (in particular Sullivan's record prior to international selection speaks for itself, or did you forget the despite being considered not good enough to play RL for Bradford he was picked up by Hull FC based on his performance in the trial game) 5-6 is an awful long time to develop the alleged necessary playing abilities. 

Are you for real?
