House of Rugby (Joe) - podcasts

Post by Stephen_Dedalus » Tue Feb 12, 2019 4:39 pm

Does anyone listen to this? (accessible via YouTube)

There's a good weekly one with Mike Tindall and James Haskell.

And a Irish version for the spuds, I think presented by Andrew Trimble.

A bit twattish for my tastes.

Yes, there is definitely an emphasis on the "bants", with who would make a superhero XV.

But lots of good anecdotes, and good analysis this week on what's wrong with French rugby.

Oh, they did a who would make a best XV from 80s TV presenters. Apparently the suggestion of Saville at Full Back (nothing would get past him) was deleted.

Shavenhead and his fellow boneheads are still angry about losing the boer war so heaven knows how long they will be going on about that legitimate tackle

I stopped listening when I heard:

"South Africa should have beaten that England side comfortably"

"This is the worst England side under Eddie Jones"

Now I know why your head is up your arse.

I see England are starting to talk themselves up as being the best in the world.

Perfect timing just before the World Cup.

But England are surely the best in the world.

They just demolished France, and a few weeks ago they convincingly beat Ireland, who until then were the best in the world. They said so themselves.

No later no then.

Ireland started getting a bit ahead of themselves. I'm reliably informed there was a national day of mourning on the Monday.

I think the all cunts are still marginally the best side. Followed by and in no particular order, England, Ireland, Wales and the South Cunts. Below this you have Scotland, Australia and Argentina. Then it's Italy and the various South Pacific island nations.

France?

Also, Fiji is sitting way above Italy in the rankings. I believe they're sitting at about #8. They just recently gave France a hiding.

Shavenhead, as you linked it, I paid you the courtesy of going back and listening to that podcast, the first half.

Yeah, they made some very good points. The England team they faced were suffering from a huge amount of injuries at that time.

And a lot of those missing individuals are back now. The Vunipolas, Manu.

But, from the starting XV against South Africa last November, 11 out if that 15 started against Ireland.

So, some of those individuals who played against South Africa have taken their opportunity.

Jamie George will now keep Hartley out as hooker and co-captain. A good thing IMO. And George is a proper hooker, I will no longer call him Fatboy

And Henry Slade is showing signs of his skills, a gem to have at outside centre with his Football skills.

And who could predict a aged Mark Wilson and 20 year old Tom Curry adding spice to the back row?

So, the Saffers shouldn't feel so bad about losing to a team they perceive as being "under-strength".

Yes, it was a penalty. I'm unsure if it was a yellow.

But, as they say, no guarantee they would have kicked it, at that angle, at Twickenham, especially at that moment if the game. And with the kicking performance in the game.

But, they would have had the opportunity.

I think over exuberance and penalties could be the main thing against England at the WC. But, how do you 'school' that out of players?

What isn't mentioned in that clip is that the SA side was also woefully understrength. Arguably the two most important players - De Klerk and Willie Le Roux didn't play, as they had a commitment to their English Pub team. How absurd is that? WTF!!! It's a bit like saying "Oh Sorry, Owen Farrell and Henry Slade can't play in the epic match at Twickenham against South Africa this weekend because they have to play for the Sharks in Durban in an important match".

Basically that match was a complete farce for all of these reasons, and wasn't really a true contest.

England still have a good few to come back, first XV and bench replacements.

But who knows what each team will have available after a long season with their clubs.

The two positions I think England are vulnerable in are No8 and No10. Billy and Owen are irreplaceable.

May is great too, but you could cover him somewhat

If I'm not mistaken, Billy Vunipola didn't play in the AI's, yet England still managed to win all their matches including SA and Australia, and narrowly lost to the All Blacks. England can survive without him.

Farrell can also be a potential liability. There's a red card out there with his name on it. Hope it doesn't manifest itself at a crucial stage in the world cup.

Everyone has a 10 minute sin bin in them.

In 67 caps for England I don't remember seeing Farrell being sent off.

What is do see his him getting 8 or 9 out of 10 in the paper each week.

refs need to enforce off side rules, defensive lines being offside is ruining attacking play.

The tactic is to play brilliantly for the prior 6 months, talk yourselves up in the press, then implode spectacularly at home to a lowly Southern Hemisphere pub team.

In an alternate universe, where a shadow exists, other posters would probably have also linked podcasts from their neck of the woods.

That would have been interesting.

Thanks mate. I'll give them a listen.

I've decided to make rugby my main spectator sport, down to club level.

I've become tired by the general 'wankery' in football.
