Re: The Six nations rugby thread 2021

I think England thought Wales would kick the three points and congregated under the goal a) so the captain can pass on the refs warning and b) a quick tactics talk. The ref raised his arm , blew and Wales tap kicked to the corner and scored a good try. I thought England looked good in the second hal...

Re: The Six nations rugby thread 2021

I thought England were half a sleep for the first try. They conceded a penalty and the ref told the skipper to have a word with his team - that used to mean a quick shout to the players to buck up - not a 1 minute team talk or meeting under the sticks .

Re: Any comments on the Sentinals retirment last Friday

I hope in the future the 5 Squadon Maple leaf appears on another manned aircraft type - maybe a Lightning Squadron! Are the Red Arrows formally moving to Waddington or is it a temporary relocation? After all Waddo is a lot of airfield to keep open for three or four Rivet joints when the E-3D retires...

Eddie Jones please dont be so arrogant!! It's offensive ! 😊 That seems to be Eddie Jones all over. He's had it in for Wales of course since the Warren Gatland connection. Bring back Stuart Lancaster - he was a nice guy! Wales beat England because they played with more discipline and deserved to win...

Re: Electric Cars. Yes No or whatever!

You are right of course I was playing devils advocate Clearly if there is less pollution in the air then that benefits us all but I am not sure that mining lithium and banning ICE cars is the way to go - let the technology mature and if EV cars are better , more efficient etc then the demand will in...

Well said Iain. My mother was a school teacher and I know the hours she used to put in away from the actual school were considerable. When she suddenly fell ill and was unable to continue with her calling, the only thing she was interested in was how her pupils were going to cope without her. Her h...
