Just finished James Haskell new book What A Flanker. Was a great read as he goes through some of the antics he got up to during his career.

Got Joe Marler one to read at some point as thought that might be interesting!

Just heard the news about JJ Williams. A Welsh legend. Even a non-Rugby fan like me knew about JJ Williams.

Really sad. I grew up admiring that great Welsh team; JJ, Gareth Edwards, Gerald Davies, JPR, the Pontypool front row...

Sad news indeed. In an age when modern rugby players resemble body builders JJ came from an era when they looked like athletes and were light on their feet and looked a thing of beauty as they twisted and turned defying the opposition at every opportunity.

RIP

Wales looking appalling at the moment. New manager required.

Pivac is under real pressure. Look utterly clueless. To take over a successful team to make them look a shambolic mess in such a short space of time is very worrying.

Totally flat performance.Never looked like scoring tries and completely out enthused by a sharper Irish outfit!:unsure:

Shocking penalty count against the Welsh:blink:

It's not been a good week in Welsh rugby at all!:rolleyes:

Its clear to see Pivac is nowhere near the standards of Gatland as a manager. We look absolutely awful at the moment and big changes are required.

So the Premiership is back this weekend and Exeter carried on where they left off though not a great performance but a win is a win.

Autumn Cup is rolling on and two wins for England. Wales seem to be struggling and France are maybe finally showing what they can do?

Also been watching the RC and fantastic result for Argentina and World Rugby see them beat the AB and backed up with a draw against Australia :t:

Fantastic tries by May he got my MOM vote ahead of Itoje but great performance. Wales next up who laboured to a win against Georgia.

Well done to Newcastle and on winning ways on their return :t:
