Yes, in the England/Italy match. Eddie Jones was/is not too pleased at all about Italy's tactics apparently, even though they are legal. Watch for a rule change coming up perhaps? Pete :cheers:

Premiership: RFU Championship promotion play-off scrapped

"Automatic promotion to the Premiership will be introduced in 2018 after the Rugby Football Union decided to scrap the Championship play-offs.

The winners of England's second-tier competition will be promoted if they satisfy 'minimum standard criteria' to play in the top-flight.

Promotion this term will again be decided via the four-team play-offs.".....

I guess it might tempt pharvey to come skulking out of his hole, temporarily though :D :run:

Yep, could have been a slightly easier fixture for the record, especially being in Dublin too. :?

That said, if we play like we did yesterday, we have a good chance.
Poor old jocks didn't know what hit 'em :mrgreen:

I clicked on to the Rugby Thread and saw "last post by Pharvey". I had a vision of him blowing his bugle and lowering the Welsh flag
Class! Didn't have a bugle, but was certainly wearing the black arm band! :(

Well, I was glad to be back..... :roll:

Have returned from the depths of the desert with mixed feelings (and a couple of YouTube recordings of the 6N)... God's Own have not been at their best, but a great win against the Paddies and a narrow (but heart breaking) loss to those from the wrong side (of the bridge). The Sweaties deserve more than their points show, but capitulated at "HQ". Les Bleus...... ? :? and surely it's time for a 6N with relegation and the chance for Georgia to be a part of the Top Tier?

Abducted, yes BB - but by Mauritanians. A hardship not to have the pork Roast on a Sunday, but devastating not to be able to drown your sorrows after an excruciating 5 pt loss to Beelzebub (he does come from "Down Under") and his squad.
Oh, and that's a tad flat for Wales - has more of the look of the Lake District come 2018 :neener:
JG - Superb game, Ireland off their best, but Wales coming back from some poor displays - pity God''s Own have made it easier for the Lillywhites, but hope the boys from The Emerald Isle bring that winning streak to an end come Saturday :cheers:
PET - As much as it pains me to say, your "Red Rose" :wink: have realistically only played to their best against the Scots - and they're looking incredibly good. A huge contingent for the British Lions (hopefully without your captain).
Pete - As usual great captain! :cheers:
RZR - Understand..... I'm only lulling you into a false sense of security with my 10th placing.... :roll: :oops:

Here's to a great final weekend of the 6N!! :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

Good to have you back Pharvey. Now, do your best with catch-up concerning the Champions League, and sign up for F1 as only a week or so away. Pete :cheers:

Just need to shaken Big Boy off my tail and hoodwink Iron Jack and Dai in the final 3 fixtures. :? . . . . . :twisted:
