My father's seen one, but it was an amateur game.  Did anyone watch the USA Vs Ireland A?  The USA were good when they kept the ball in hand, but it all seemed to go to pot when ever they tried to pass the ball.

Cor, its dusty in this thread.....

Anyway - Rob Andrew as the new Elite Director of rugby for England. Good choice? I think so. Rob has always been outspoken about what he feels is wrong with the RFU and more importantly given ideas for how things ought to be done. By the sounds of it, he has excellent relations with the different clubs who are fully supporting his appointment so hopefully will resolve some of the 'Club or Country' problems English rugby has been experiencing. Now if only we can find someone to do the same for Welsh rugby...

Hes an excellant choice for England, but this could be a disaster for the Falcons. John Fletcher is a decent coach but whether he's got the talent to take over at KP remains to be seen. Could be a long and hard season for the falcons

To be fair, they haven't been that successful for a while. Been a while since they won it, anyway.

Also what about Lote Tuquiri's ban? Is it excessive? While I'm all for decent length bans for dangerous tackles, I wish they'd get some consistency out. Tana Umaga didn't get that long, did he? And that tackle looke more purposeful than Lote's, although Richie McCaw did land on his head rather than his shoulder like O'Driscoll.

Great game for sale on saturday. i was there and the atmosphere was good. a lot better than a lot of the home games last season.

Well now mr. andrew is in the england squad, expect to see some changes. In the centre, and this is going to be annoying, i would play Tait and Tindall. Tait because of his speed (more so than tindall) and tindall due to his vision. Yes he can be a bit flat sometimes but overall, he is a quality player. As long as robinson drops noon, all should be good.

Hodgson as number 10. The way he can control a game is amazing! He is cool and calm but like somebody said earlier, he does bottle under pressure. But thats moslty due to the press giving him a half time. A 40 point haul in 2 games so far this season can't be a bad thing!

And i do think simpson daniel should be on the wing. Anybody can play better than cohen has done since 2003. The drop he made against scotland last year which ultimately cost us that game will never be forgotten!

I don't agree with Tindall at all. All he seems to have at the moment is 'Route A1' running, smashing the ball up the centre. I used to think it was just the way Robinson played him, but then I saw him in a few club games and he did the same.

but under a new regime? give him a run out in the AI's but possibly look towards smith for the 6n and beyond. but it may be too late by then. Jesus, Robinson has left it late!

So Mattie Rogers is off back to League then, thats a pity, I've always liked Mattie, his only problem with the Aussies was that he was the 2nd best player in every position. Very exciting prospect and probably coulda been a superstar in the code in any team outside of Oz and NZ.

Bugger!!!

Didn't see the match and by reading the report, sounds like it was a dubious penalty at the end there.

Still, thems the breaks. I'd like to see what a) the penalty was exactly for and b) why they were pushed back 10 metres. I know it was for complaining, but I don't know whether the behaviour deserved it as no report really comments on it. I'm half glad that complaining WAS penalised as I think this separates us from football, but its a pain in the ass and the Tigers may feel aggrieved if its nothing worse than others have got away with. Still, thems the rules I guess.

Well, here's to giving Cardiff a good sound thrashing!!

As I said in the PM t'was a superb match in fairness. Leicester gave it everything they had, but unfortunately they were let down by bad selections from Pat H and too much indiscipline by some players, too much backchat.

If you want to see some clips from the game checkhere. Tis a bit long winded and turn the sound down if in an office.

Yeah, sounds like Goode should have been on at the start. I thought he WAS the starting No.10.

My bro was at the game and he said, rather worryingly, that Goode was puking up during the warm up for the game

Leicester increase their chance of qualifying for the knock-out stages of the Heineken Cup with a decent win over Cardiff.

So what do we think about the international squads for this weekend?

England looks like its taking a gamble on its younger players. As Ford says, they can't keep doing what they've been doing because it hasn't worked. Going to look horrible if it doesn't work but they;ve got to try and keep a squad together even if it fails to begin with. The constant chop and change has ruined the England team. Lets hope something clicks and its not just a massacre!!!

Wales seem to have a relatively strong side, although we seemto have a few injuries and disqualifications again. Dwayne Peel and Stephen Jones back again as the half-backs has been a successful combination for us. Hopefully Ryan Jones, Gareth Thomas and Gavin Henson (who I still think is an excellent centre when on form) will come back from injury fresh and ready to rock.

I'll be up at 1.30am on Sunday morning to watch the Wales v Australia game. Not hugely confident about beating an improved Aussie team but I think we'll give them a run for their money.

England will get what they deserve by picking that centre partnership. How they can continue to isolate Josh too is a mystery to me. Ford is a genius coach from his time with Ireland, but I think the Kiwi's isn't the time to go for it. Picking Corry at 6 smacks of wedging him into the side in my opinion. I applaud England for trying something different, but it could hurt.

Would you not agree that Henson is totally over rated though, really? I'd give any number of Welsh centre's a run over the over hyped one. Joes is class and Peel has a bit about him, Wales have the makings of a nice side there. They'll do well I'd say.

I fancy our chances this year over here in Ireland. Well not anymore than any other year, but its just that this year seems to be a make or break one for the team and Eddie. Could be an all Munster pack this year, apart from Easterby at 6, but even if Quinlan was to be included it wouldnt exactly weaken the thing. Ally that to the best backline in Europe in Leinster and we're flying it. Quietly confident, but then again we always find a way to fuck things up.
