    I could afford to lose a few pounds like, but that's a bit ****in' harsh.

    No doubt there's talent there, and I agree that it's not like medical training where you have to do your three years at one level before stepping up.

    But I think it's optimistic to talk of young,...

    Earls has played wing, full back and centre at test level, which I suspect has held him back a bit.

    The gap between where he is and where he could be is mostly a question of injuries though, I...

    All prospects at European level as 12s bar Marshall. I'd have Marshall as my first choice if he could lose the fragility, but it's holding him back I think.

    The others are interesting players, but...

    They might end up there before the GE, but right now the position is that they'll only have a referendum if they're due to transfer more powers.

    All will change in the event of Scottish...

    No guarantees on an English EU exit, to be honest. If Labour win there won't even be a referendum.

    That would be my feel. He last played 13 at any level some time ago.

    And I'm not sure it solves a problem, given that there's no obvious successor at 12 unless someone pulls the stops out or...

    I'm quite confused as to why questions like sponsorship deals etc are being brokered in terms of a "salary top up from private money".

    I'd have thought it implicit that a high profile Irish...

    I'd bet it is. I'm just wondering if the extreme curve navigated in weight gain at a certain point in their careers mean they basically spend a lot of time in a more "pre-season" regime. It's...

    Could it be that the effort to stick two stone on them dictates their activity levels and makes the organisation want to keep then free of injury?

    He should run that idea past some of his African buddies.

    Yes, it's important that we take that on board too. Sorry for not being clearer.

    I wasn't referring to that post in particular. More to the idea of this turning into a long running thread where everyone comes to talk about people who don't use the site any more.

    I think that judgement will be based on how we're performing at the breakdown rather than tries.

    The return against Edinburgh, for instance, won't do. It's not enough to be dominated across the...

    That group was a pretty broad church in terms of behaviour on the site. Some of that doesn't apply at all to some.

    Either way, I think Glorob is right - there's not much that's edifying about...

    There's a conflict there in the "increasingly federalist" bit, I think. It's the quasi-federal nature of the EU as a trading block that is rendering the likes of the UK and Spain less relevant.

    In theory if he plays 7's for France now he's allowed to play XVs isn't he? I've lost all memory of the stipulations on the new ruling.

    Any idea of the quality of the two lads they brought in from Cheetahs this year? Surprised to see the Italians importing front five, even if it is a Saffer lock.

    Commercial genius. Loss making organisations increase their revenue and promptly piss it up the wall on inflated wages.
