I've been doing some searching and have discovered the abscence of a proper Rugby Union thread. If there is one, I haven't found it.

RULES:

1. Discussion of Rugby Union or related topics only.

2. Usual stuff about flaming and whatever.

3. Primarily for club rugby but National discussion is allowed.

Like the football thread, if you want to be listed next to your (club) team as a fan then give me a PM and I'll stick you down. Also don't be afraid to ask if you support a team in a league that isn't listed here, I can always add it.

Bath fan there, wondering how the feck we are doing so sh*te.

The rules that came in this year has affected our style, but it's still not enough to explain the loss of attacking potency.

I like Bath, nice club, cool ground. But yeah you guys are pants this season. If you don't pick your game up, you'll get beat by Leeds.

Wait, I don't remember saying I'm a Dragon's Fan? Correct but don't remeber saying it. ****ing weird!

Anywho, Dragons will sneak a play-off place this year when we sort out our away form Also a mixed bag in the International from Wales.

Lets be honest Og, I guessed that you had a terrible taste in rugby teams, so I just put down the worst one I could possibly think of.

Bout time we had one of these! I'm surprised at the falcons form so far this season. I mean 6th! I would've never have guessed at that. Still need consistency though, we'll win big matches like London Irish then lose to Harlequins =/

Also, sign me up as a falcons fan.

Finally got a decent thread about this.

Im quite suprised on how well Newcastle are doing but then it doenst suprise me that they turn shocking in the games after they perform so well. Im hoping for Europe.

and i agree, Saracens are doing stupidly well this season.

The blues are doing the same as they were last year they'll fail at the magners league and do well in the Henkicen, which I reckon they'll do with the side they have.
Anyone seen the Barbarian's squad today? S hit a brick, proberly the best side anyone could think of really.

There's gotta be a law or something against having Elsom, Powell, Roberts and Rokocoko in the same side.

Anyone watching the Saracens game?

I seriously reckon its still because of the worst debut he had against Wales. He is an awesome player, I rate him better than Geraity (spelt wrong, the Northampton guy)

Boxing day (or the day after) is derby day. How'd you team get on?

Dragons....well. The one decison went the wrong way and destroyed the momentum of our game. 2nd half, Fussel, pushed Rhys Thomas out the way (legal move after a few replays, but looked fine after firsat look) and grabbed the ball, clean threw for a 7 pointer, but a pentaly went Cardiff's way. And they went on to shit all over us.

Picking at straws maybe, but it was a turning point at the game 13-16 (to cardiff)

Sp yeah, how was your festive games?

Wales were missing Adam Jones (best prop in the 6 nations) and Lee Byrn (2nd best fullback to Keraney), so there'll be massive imporvments come febuary....hopefully.

If Ireland have everything in place at the right time they'll be bloody difficult to beat: Tommy Bowe, Brian O'Driscoll, Gordon D'Arcy and Rob Kearny at the back? That's one of the best back lines in the world let alone the 6 nations.

France have a decent shout if Ireland don't have things rolling their way; the problem with France is they don't have many TRULY world class players, many good players but at the moment I think they're lacking 1 true superstar to pull the whole team together (although it's a pretty good platform for somebody to take that mantle.)

With Johnson in charge England don't have a hope in hell; Borthwick shouldn't even be on the bench for a start, if Simon Shaw doesn't start I will have serious words with Johnson... Banahan is a good player for Bath because he has the necessary support from the centres, Johnson seems to think he's an olympic sprinter when he clearly isn't. I think the Saxons team would have a good chance of beating our 6-nations team, Johnson needs to give a few youngsters (with good premiership records) a shout otherwise we'll lose with our 1d game now and lose later when we have a team of players inexperienced in international games. (*cough* WALDOUCK... I think Johnson is a bit anti-wasps, Tim Payne fits his "lumpy slow brawler" mentality but ignores our best players! Tim Payne shouldn't even start as far as I'm concerned)

Onto Wales; I don't think they have a massive shout this year tbh, I don't see them scoring enough to win. I hate to say it but I think you miss Henson in the middle of the park, I'm not his biggest fan but he made a diffenence when playing for Wales and I haven't seen anybody to take over that role really.

I won't talk about the other two.


My prediction:

Ireland
France
Wales
England
Scotland
Italy

Saying that, Glasgow and Edinburgh are both flying in the magners league, I can't remember how well they did in the Autum but they could make some impact on the compition this year. If they find a replacment for Dan Parks first.
And Italy will be utterly useless this year with now Periesa (sp but you know who).
