    ****ing 11.15 kick off here with work on a Sunday morning. I'll tell you, they don't half take fans based in the GCC region for granted! Would a few 9am kick offs kill ye, would it?

    The latter. If it's bad, a physio might be a good bet for a few simple exercises to get your core going. And (the thing the pretty much fixed my back on it's own) stretch your hamstrings. Roll up a...

    Indeed. The ability to be a season ticket holder and only pay for a select group of games that work for you is a benefit that the MRSC offer, though obviously its driven by the particular nature of...

    I'd imagine the impact is readily assessable if the data is held in the right way. It should be possible to see what percentage of dual season tickets are only used in one venue and how many are used...

    Not an issue of aesthetics or entertainment for me. I just can't think of a performance in the last 12 months that will be good enough to win on Sunday if reproduced.

    My guess (and it is a guess) is that it's no coincidence that it's a World Cup year and that relatively minor injuries that would have been carried through to the off season are all being operated on...

    Do, Fitzy. I saw it just as my lad was turning 3, I think, and I was choking up in the cinema.

    We saw some of the old guard rendered a bit obsolete by the changes in the scrum laws. It would be interesting to know how far down the production line that rippled. Were the coaches looking at...

    On paper we have the talent, but they've produced back play in this tournament of a type that we haven't mustered in quite some time.

    I agree on Haskell and Robshaw, and we have shown we know how...

    Me too. They have more grunt than us in the front 5, and more incision than us in the backs. It will require the sort of Ire vs Eng performance where our pack sets about them like an angry drunk...

    Quite right. 20 years ago, any back worth his salt would have been saying "give it to me - they've a fat fella opposite me" and running ****ing rings around him all day. No space these days though.

    I think there should be another law covering the invocation of Godwin's Law. I've seen threads discussing fascism and anti-semitism where Godwin's Law is raised, as if no comparison to nazism were...

    At the same time the artifice added to it. I've seen Arquette and Hawke in other films during that time. I was struck by a recognition of the younger version of them, and by the fact that while I was...

    I found Boyhood very powerful exactly because it was a description of a mundane everyday life.

    The main impact on me was probably as a parent though. Watching how quickly a boyhood flies by is...

    I'm sure many did. And if at least one of them was that oppressive imperial regimes have no right to a monopoly on violence then I'd be right with them.

    By the time armies start conscripting again a call up would be the least of our worries.

    Modern armies depend on highly trained professionals operating highly complex systems and technology.

    I don't think you should be sorry. Being happy is generally a good thing.

    And we'll all need fairly sunny dispositions to deal with what's coming over the next few years :-)

    It's more the fact that a 9 isn't sighted a lot of the time. I was always coached that the call from outside was obeyed, basically, on the assumption that they were better positioned to see space.
