After watching some of the games today, and seeing the lack of talk about it on here, made me think does anyone actually care about it...

I know I dont give 2 shits about it, but I suppose it is a way into Europe...

After 2 defeats in a row for Northampton...although the injury crises is definently not helping it shows that they don't really see the competition as important as the Heiny or the GP.

I just hope the form picks up again next week at FG against the Tiggs.

The fact I've refered to it as the Mickey Mouse cup since it's inceptio answers the question from me.

Couldn't care less if my team doesn't progress on one hand, but I don't like seeing them lose on the other... Catch 22.

So the was only 2 'completely' English players on that starting line-up?! No wonder England are doing so well, oh wait....

That's Keith Barwells way of saying 'f*** you' to the RFU and their central contracts proposal.

Sadly, it'll backfire when Saints lose Lamont & Kydd to Scotland, Davies to Wales (it'll proberbly happen in the 2008 6N), Quinlan, Browne and Browne to Ireland and Cohen, Wally, Hartley, Fox, Diggin & Barnard to England.

Been out with a groin injury for a long time. He's a fast inside centre, good at carving a line. I think he scored on his debut last season.

This is him;

It's boring rugby...mainly because "who cares?" Let the Welsh and English meet up in the H-Cup (if the Welsh can even get there...no offense...I mean "Wooo Go on Ya Big Red Dragon!")

That's just the natch; they don't have to win f*** all and still get into the HEC with the pissy rules in the Celtic League.

Anything with a group stage where you don't play each team home and away can't be a competition you take seriously. The UEFA cup isn't a model to base a tournament on.

What's wrong with a straight knockout competition for the top three divisions in England?

Oh yeah sorry Mr PRL, how dare we suggest your superstars mix with the hoi polloi.

Bee-in-his-bonnet Stuey ;)

It's not the PRL that caused the upsed, it's the RFU and WRU wanting more money.

They're the ones who made it the ringfenced ******** it is now.

The top x amount in the CL, not 3 from wales, 3 from Ireland and 2 from Scotland.


Make the c***s earn it.

umm yes but tht defeats it somewhat, cos the representation of the hec, is for the union, i.e wales, ire, and scot

you could have four welsh side, and three irish and none frm scotland, this is the fairest way i think.
