Watching the Scotland Wales game from 2017 on the SRU facebook at the moment.

3 years on and I'm still utterly seething at Eddie Butler spending the whole game calling Tommy Seymour the wrong name. Usually something between "Tommy Boyd" and "Tommy Bowe"

I was at that game and behaved appallingly towards the Welsh guy sitting in front of me, who basically ended up paying the price for every w****r Wales fan I'd sat next to in the years previous.

When it comes to rugby, I have never met a Welshman who wasn't an arrogant w****r.

Highlanders-Chiefs was great. Amazing how much of a difference a proper crowd makes when you compare to the NRL stuff over the last few weeks.

If they ever start enforcing the breakdown laws in the NH the way they did today, Wales and Ireland are fucked.

I love the idea of Otere Black telling his kids the story of his first Super Rugby Aotearoa game.

"Daddy, did you play for the Blues?"

"Yeah son, I played 10. They shifted Beauden Barrett to full back and Dan Carter didn't make the 23."

Did the Blues Ginger scrum half get on as all I have seen is the final score

I'm watching as live and am at 75 mins. The ginger boy has just fallen on a ruck

25 years ago today, Jonah absolutely obliterated England.

One of the great sporting occasions.

Have edited this thread title so it is just union. There is a already a league thread here, so people can post about either if they want.

As I said on the wrong thread Glasgow look to be shafted by the Pro'14 fixtures.

Or if they get the required ten points Edinburgh will be shafted.

Aye looks like it. 
Has Stafford McDowall been playing much for Glasgow this year? Just thinking about Scotland squad depth (I've really fallen away from following Glasgow) and with Horne, Taylor, Scott and Dunbar all pretty unlikely to play for Scotland again either because of form/age/injuries, we only really have Sam Johnson to play 12, excellent though he is. Hutchinson seems to switch between there and 13 for Saints but I think at international level if he makes it it'll be as a 13.

Warren finding out that it's very difficult to bore teams into submission in Super Rugby.

Such a shame.

Has it not guaranteed us European Cup for next season though? I agree it's a fucking stupid way to finish the season. Doubt Benetton or Cheetahs will be complaining.

Yes it has. However we'll be bottom seeds. No fault of our own, but if the Cheetahs could play in Europe we could've found ourselves in the European Challenge Cup next season.

Rugby will be all over the shop next season. Doubt bottom seeds will really matter too much

Glasgow squad getting even thinner with Davidson off to Edinburgh

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/53150678

We are getting pretty short in the 2nd row, with Gray away, Swinson re-tiring, i think it only leaves Cummins and Gray coming in, with Harley as back up

That is all we have at the moment. I'm not sure if anyone has heard what is happening with Nakarawa, but I expect we are trying to keep him as well.
