>Glasgow's Scotland flanker Ryan Wilson has been cited for allegedly grabbing the testicles of Northampton's scrum-half Lee Dickson.
That's happened to me as well
I took the ball in a lineout, dropped down and my opposite number reached over and started twisting my bollocks. I started randomly swinging, felt my elbow connect and he let go.
>tfw also have a testicle story
>fat smelly prop breaks the line (I know)
>I'm running directly behind him
>jump to tackle him
>as I do that his foot kicks up and catches me right in the balls
>be sick on the pitch right there next to the ruck
The only testicle story I have is running after a kick and getting stepped but trying to grab the fullback's shorts but instead I squeezed his nuts which made him lose almost all momentum.
Now that makes sense about Halfpenny.
If North or Biggar get injured Walels are literally fucked. It spells good things for the Wallabies tour later in the year if they're selected again because they literally cost Walels every match against Australia.
>tackle a fella
>as I'm rolling out of the ruck to get out of the way, the opposing scrumhalf stomps on my crotch
>I blow up the ruck and start throwing punches
>get pulled off him and get yellow carded
>tackle him later in the game
>choke him under the pile until he passes out
players who fuck with people's dicks are the biggest fucking faggots in the history of sport, I wish I had killed that shithead because you just know I wasn't the first person he did that to
What's worse though, having your dick fondled, or having your ass fingered?
>players who fuck with people's dicks are the biggest fucking faggots in the history of sport
this is true, it's the lowest you can go as a person
those people should be banned from sport and shunned from society tbqh
Said no one ever. I saw the literal gayest shit when I played Rigby in uni. Like, there was no way any of it could be considered banter at that point, this was latent homosexuality coming to the fore. Shit was so gay we had an actual gay person on our team and he didn't engage in nearly as much faggotry as the rest of the team did.
Think we're fairly fucked for this years tournament lads
We have the hardest opening fixtures, and England and France away. Tournament could be over before it even starts.
Missing Bowe and Henderson. Henshaw won't have played a game for 3 months before the opening game. Payne was just back recently. Our second row is weak with Hendersons injury and O' Connells retirement and will impact our usual dominance of the line-out.
To top this off Schmidt said after the world cup we don't have to change the way we play. ( ._.)
Just target Cuthbert like the Irish provinces have started doing. Little chip/grubber behind him then get a speedy winger like Gilroy or Zeebs™ to burst onto it before Cuthbert even gets a chance to turn around.

KEK, nice "poomunity" you have here
Neck you still alive m8? We need to talk about the serious issue of Warburton playing fuck all games this season but still getting put as starting 7 and captain.
You playing Italy twice and you are hoping for one win against them?
Read your post mate.
Englel have Jones now so I think beating them will be a tough ask.
You could beat the French but I think the Irish and Welsh will be a bridge too far.
So 1 maybe 2 wins - not the
>at least 3 this year
like you predicted
oh right, my bad, meant france.
A new looking england team with a new style of play who have been training with new staff for a few weeks coming to murrayfield, im not saying its an easy ask, but a new coach takes time.
granted, 3 is optimistic. but achievable, france ireland and wales are in no kind of form.
Well one of those games is at home...
Indeed, Jones needs ATLEAST a two year bedding in period before he should be expected to get results.
>England - New coach
>France - New Coach
>Ireland - Injuries
>Italy - Shit
>Scotlel - Shit
Literally OUR year
If Priestland and Cuthbert can stay off the field long enough for the rest of the team to win the game then yeah that's accurate.
Your literal autist of a fly half will carry the backline.
Wales look strongest and have a massive chunk of their squad back from injuries. Majority of players in good form.
Ireland have a few injuries, they'll be weak in the second row but have good depth all-round. Forwards always competitive.
Scotland have a full squad and the best scrum in the competition, they'll surprise a lot of people if they do something with their backs.
England will be rebuilding, a few new faces will change their structure but it'll take a good few games before they get firing. Tuilagi coming back could make a huge difference.
France won't change, they'll be half brilliant and half shit. Lopez at 10 is an absolute must (although I don't even think he's in the squad?)
Italy will look to pick off maybe one win at home if they're lucky, Parisse will carry them to good performances but they'll be lucky to get a win.
Is /cheeto/ gonna make a return this year?? Looking at the transerfs, I'm not optimistic
>4 try bonus point on suicide watch
Looks like they're going to go with the French system of 3 tries more than your opponent to get a bonus point, so no more both teams getting a 4 try bonus point when they're both shit.
What's been going on at Auckland Uni since the World Cup? I was unwittingly drawn into the Daniel tragicomedy.
Trannyiel dropped a 5 post "farewell" speech in this thread.
Naturally, he was back posting the very next day.
1. Irlanda (more strong physically)
2. País de Gales
3. Inglaterra (Jones effect shall appear later)
4. Inglaterra do Norte (RUWC was a summer night dream)
5. França (under reconstruction)
The Romania match was apparently the largest comeback in WC history . The Italy match was actually pretty good despite some shit referees, some really great tries. The other two you shouldn't bother with.
the injury problem isn't that bad now. It's just Halfpenny, Scott Williams and Webb now. I think Webb is probably the biggest problem, I really don't rate Gareth Davies besides his meme potential
>tfw your country is so good at producing 7's they've started producing them for other countries
You're welcome England.
i wouldnt go as far as saying Scotland have a full squad. Injurys to Bennet, Seymour, Gilchrist, Visser. Plus the guys that are just coming back from injury like dunbar and dickinson. Plus glasgow are lacking form at the minute. not saying they arent good but losing 4 games on the trot has an effect.
dont get me wrong, think they are in a stronger position than most, but i just wouldnt overstate how good of a position that is.
He pretty much guarantees lineout ball though. If you think he's shit now you should have seen him before he was capped, he was genuinely hilarious to watch.
I'm sorry but how? You're saying guys like Zebo and Payne are more physical than guys like Roberts and North?

KEK, nice "poomunity" you have here
The pinnacle of Rugby Union is viewed as the penalty goal. Every rule in the entire game is geared towards maximizing the amount of penalty goals that can be attempted within 80 minutes. Its great viewing. What a thrilling sport.
Rugby league is OK but I can't deal with all that running and passing. Sometimes a whole game can pass without a single penalty goal being kicked! Can you imagine?
I hardly ever get to sit and watch for eight minutes while a scrum collapses and repacks six times, followed by a penalty goal, in rugby league. If league wants to compete they need far more of it.
Also, there's far too much game time in rugby league. They set up too many plays and go far too long without slowing the game down with penalties, line outs and 4 scrum re-packs. What rugby league need to do is make field goals and penalty goals worth more, so more time is spent standing around watching one guy kick a ball. Did you guys see the latest Durban Pirates vs Roturua Razorbacks game? Six penalty goals to five! The pirates had no answer to the Razorbacks tactics of kicking the ball out then collapsing the scrum.
Its this level of tactical sophistication that is missing in rugby league, where as you rightly point out, its just a bunch of athletic guys trying to score tries against each other. Yawn.
with Johhny May, Memer-Skudder, CorderGOAT and others tearing shit up, who else is deligted at the comeback of quick, agile manlet wingers?
the dark ages of Matt Banahan seem so long ago now
I'll have to get into some NH rugby this year. When's your 6N kicking off lads? Who's the favourite going in? Any of you going to join us for some Super Rugby discussion come Feb?
Had enough of that shit at the world cup thanks.
Pool A was best pool and nearly led to me cucking someone
>tfw you will never be a based muscular ELITE rugby player
>Autists will never shitpost about their desire to suck your cock on a Turkmenistani scientific journal database
do the Lions have a chance in 2017?
Honestly I have no fucking idea what the All Blacks are going to be like in a post-McCaw world. They'll still be really fucking good, but it's hard to see them continuing to be as comprehensively dominant as they've been for the last decade
>do the Lions have a chance in 2017?
Better than in quite a while. I want to say it's the best chance in NZ since the 71 tour but it depends on whether whoever coaches it can get enough meme magic out of his players
Which 8 teams do you think will go through?
- Top 5 from NZ/Aus
-Top from all SA/Jap/Arg
In no order I've got:
>Kieran Brookes will be the best tighthead in the world at that point
Samson Lee mate
>Hartley could be there too.
He's not even the best hooker in England right now, let alone in two years
neck that has to be you, he's a fucking manlet with zero power when it comes to mauls
We're on the cusp of Pax Argentina 2bh.
You're gonna see good things from Scotland and the Aussies over the next few years while the Argies grow.
France, SA and England are gonna get worse and worse. NZ will dip up and down within the top 5 and never quite regain the GOATness.
But once the Pumas really get it together it's going to be over for everybody.
it's gonna happen faster than you think
and i'm only half-memeing
He's actually good, makes good decisions in attack and defense, is quick, has a good tackle technique, very good workrate and has great feet. He probably just needs to pack on a couple of kilos.
Sorry but there is no need for this racist terminology.
He's very young and has very few senior caps but he went to Blackrock and plays 13 so the effete southern Dublin media are hyping him up massively.
Literally spending ages on the radio talking about the young lad and if he should start for Ireland.
Surely you mean Olding.
fair enough, still think leinster have the stronger squad and will most likely be top of the table at the business end of the season like they usually are, especially now they're not going to prioritize the champions cup
Could make a few changes to that tbf but ultimately I think thats a better team.
>there were people who actually bought a ticket for this game.
The only good side from this game is that they are fresh for the remaining of "the best Union domestic championship in the World".
I'm expecting people to be fired on the spot or being transferred back to Fédéral 1 by the end of the season.
I got no beef with the UBB after that game only against our shitheads who keep on memeing for the sake of this sport.
Thei half-scrum Serin was quite remarkable too, I think that two tries were originated by him. I haven't notice much of his game besides his U-21 ones that I can barely recall.
I'd say that after that he should be on some managers small papers, maybe on Noves's for the summer tests in Argentina.
