Disagree Chalker.

How about also respecting the referee, the ARs, opposition players ?? It is, I believe, one of the core values of our game - and one of the differentials between rugby and football.

I am not surprised it happened at Sixways therefore.
Nothing wrong with free speech or having an opinion - as long as it matches mine !!

I won't repeat my views about Sixways other than to say I am not surprised by what happened.

The booing at Sixways was very unusual and not something I condone. The reason was that Foley appeared to raise his arm for a Wuss penalty and then immediatly reversed it to award Exeter a try, this was not shown on the TV footage. It seems he got a bit mixed up with his signals and was indicating a strip by Wuss and then one by Exeter. Still not right to boo during the kick - before and after OK in my view.
We lost because you cannot defend for 40 minutes, a stupid clear out by Fatialofa which probaly deserved a yellow card and a shanked clearance by Pennell who I will cut a bit of slack due to for his excellence under the high ball and a thigh injury he was carrying for the last part of the game.
Not a fan of the ladder ruck which seems to have re-emerged and Ex used on a few occasions.
A disappoinitng day.

Having now watched the highlights of the Quins v Saints game, I propose that we should play our Jake on Taqele Naiyaravoro's wing. He takes some stopping.

But not so hard to run around when we're in possession. Turning circle of an oil tanker

Fair comment. He doesn't look exactly fleet but I wouldn't want to be the last defender before the line, if he was looming down on me.

Think I'd trip over my shoelace before contact was necessary :o :lol:

Just watching sale v Wasps
Sale have switched to an overseas team. I see 9 of the starters are not from Eng . Squadwise - I see they have raised our 7 Boks with 9 of their own.

Sale v Wasps, an example of the worst refereeing of the breakdown l have ever seen. Shocking. Poor Wasps.
I’ve only ever been wrong once; l thought l was wrong, but l was wrong!

Poor game of rugby. They've invented a new game of rugby tennis....watch it and learn Gloucester. Keep he ball in hand and play the phases.
I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....
