Blimey my Quins really are a mess at the moment.

Our entire front row is currently suspended and now our main winger (Marland Yarde) has jumped ship to go to Sale mid-season.

We seem to be lurching from one disaster to another, in quite an impressive imitation of mid-nineties Spurs.

I see Robshaw has come out and slated Yarde. He must have a naughty boy to get that reaction out of CR.

Quite.

Seems to have galvanised the squad though based on our Anglo Welsh come back against Sarries today though!
How they could give that try when no-one could see what the hell was going on is beyond me. If it had been the 53rd minute instead of the 83rd it would have been a nailed-on scrum 5.

It was odd I agree. But the question was ‘any reason I can’t award the try’ so technically it was right.

But we were denied a nailed on try earlier in the half for no reason so all evened out.

The response to the question was right. The question itself? Not so much! ;)

Sorry dude. It’s easier to give a spam rating than try and discuss anything about international rugby with you.

I’ll stick to the club stuff where the Welsh jingoism will hopefully come up a bit less.

That’s rich coming from you. You don’t want to talk about it coz deep down you know, as does the rest of the rugby community, that Mike Brown is a ****. I mean, he even admits it himself, pretty much. I’m sure you’ve had a beer with him, though, and is a throughly nice bloke.

Sort of proved my point there.

Cheers.

England team named to play Argentina in the first of the Autumn Internationals.

No Farrell, no Itoje, no Billy, but still looks like a strong team.

Big game for Slade at 12, and very exciting that we now get to see Underhill at the top level. All sorts of over-hyped media about him being the next Richie McCaw, but it will be nice to see an England team with an actual open-side playing.

A couple of exciting youngsters off the bench as well in Curry and Lozowski.

Having said that, Wales v Australia is still the most intriguing looking of the fixtures on Saturday. Going to be a long afternoon in the pub!
