In this thread some posters have tried to minimise the disruption that occurred to league as a result of the discriminatory acts perpetrated by the RFU and their hangers-on. Just read this fascinating article about bans and withdrawal of facilities that prevented working-class Northerners from benefitting from playing their chosen sport. It may not be about rugby, but this article shows that sports that experience institutional prejudice take a long time to recover. The ban was rescinded in 1971 and it is only now two generations later that the sport is starting to flourish again.

Perhaps Burgess Sama should consider turning out for Japan rather than England next year. The Japanese coach has recruited top soccer boss Pep Guardiola to help his team with their World Cup preparation. "Rugby and soccer are very similar in that you always want to move the ball into space and Bayern Munich and his previous team Barcelona played the most fantastic passing game you have ever seen. The principles are exactly the same." With such naïve tactics as moving the ball into space and passing, it is no surprise that Japan have never won a World Cup game!

Austin Healey has his say on where Slammin' Sam should play- apparently his best position would be on the wing!!!!!???!

I think Bridge in the halves offers more to the team in the halves than at centre; hopefully Myler will have an injury free season and show more of his talent, though equally happy to see O'Brien in the side. Very happy with the two big signings, and hoping that Asotasi does more to demonstrate that he is worth his place in the team.
