Epic Rugby!

Wow! What a weekend of Rugby we were just gifted! I have not spent so much time on the edge of my seat in many a season! There was everything on tap from controversial decisions to sublime split second kicks and some unexpected close margin wins!

Let us start with the obvious and call upon the Engl...

England falter, Ireland fly!

So, the Autumn internationals are underway, and what polar opposites we had this weekend. England came stuttering out of the blocks and despite the fact the score line was a convincing win, it was not a convincing performance from the red rose. I’m not going to sit here and say that it was a bad per...

The Southern Hemisphere Jets In!

This is the time of the year the focus shifts from the weekly grind of league rugby to all things International with all four Southern Hemisphere teams jetting in.  With RWC 2019 edging ever closer there are some pretty intriguing sub plots that make this set of Autumn Internationals must see.

The ...

War of the West Country

Well, we were back to the domestic action this week and it seems as though it was serendipity that fireworks night is just on the horizon as the action went off with a bang! Who would have thought that “The battle of the West Country” would have gone down in the way it did?

EUROPEAN RUGBY AT ITS BEST

Swirling winds and unpredicted scorelines

With swirling winds and some unpredicted scorelines we had a fascinating weekend of Euro rugby.  It started for me on Thursday at Kingsholm as a pundit for the Gloucester game for Sky Sports.  Alongside me was old team mate HRH Mike Tindall who was in fin...

AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT

Lamb on the menu,  carnage at Franklins Gardens and honours even for Munster

European rugby brings the best out of every team.  In a long slog of league rugby it is almost impossible to get yourself to that high level of intensity every week.  Come European Cup rugby and – boy -  does the mind set ...

The boys are back in town!

What a resurgence for Gloucester Rugby that was! I am almost tempted to end this week’s blog there, but obviously there were many other very important results from the weekend!

Seriously though, how can a side who were literally pummelled away from home by another bottom third team last week, come ...

SHARK ATTACK AND FALCONS FLYING

From a Lion mauling to a Shark attack there has been allsorts going on in the world of rugby last week.  Let’s start with the Ospreys player who somehow thought it would be a nice idea to put his hand through the fence and give a lion a nice little stroke.  Scott Baldwin – what were you thinking! Pr...

Time for a sandwich

We’re in for an interesting weekend of Rugby, with the bottom of the table coming to life as Gloucester take on neighbours Worcester Warriors, both teams desperate to prove a point as the early stages of this season unfold. Gloucester got their campaign off to an absolute flyer with a win over champ...

It’s all about the Bounce Back

After the try fest in Round 1 we saw probably a much fairer reflection of the strengths and weaknesses in each team last weekend. The results were closer in every game apart from the Exeter win and defences tightened up.

Rugby and sport can always surprise you and that is why we love it.  Hands up ...
