    I doubt Sam Burgess was referring to the article by Gordon Darcy. There is a lot of nasty stuff going on in the RFU and not all of it is in the media. I suspect he is referring to the 'suits' among others that are gunning for the coach. English friends that are involved with Rugby suggest that the internal goings on in the RFU are not of the afternoon tea variety. The most illuminating bit of that interview is the admission that he was advised to avoid telling his Bath team mates, face to face, that he was leaving. Maybe there was also disquiet there about his arrival.

      Thanks for the advice. In a similarly helpful vein, I might suggest you learn what a plural is and how it is different to the singular.

        Nah, but the first two would struggle on the more basic end of fitness, and all three on passing. RU is a much more technically demanding game, but there is no doubt that the top end of the NRL is dominated by players whose basic fitness and skill levels are amazing.

            True, but no matter what juice they give a lad, he has to have the underlying physical attributes and the training ethic to be able to take advantage of them.

              Lancaster is gone, but Farrell, Catt and another back room coach appear to be still in place. This review, if published, may tell us if Lancaster was overruled regarding bringing Burgess into the team.

                Mike Brown gives it both barrels, ouch. As for Lancaster being overruled he was the head man. If he let himself be overruled then he was incompetent. I'd expect any new man to clear out and start again with his own team. If some stay it will be his call because he and the squad rate their input, any top coach will insist in that in the interview process

                  If a meteorite hit the earth and wiped everything out, the only forms of life to survive would be cockroaches and Andy Farrell.

                    I thought they were testing the T14.
