It’s comical some believe this is even debaitable, Bristol flat out attempted to manipulate the situation until the point they realised they would be worse off and U turned, not saying it’s not been done before and won’t happen again but see it for what it is, lam et all are simply not whiter than white the sooner thats accepted the better.

If needs be pretty much, yes. The majority of coaches lie and cheat to benefit their team all the time.
That doesn't mean when they are caught it should be ignored. Players cheat all the time but we still expect them to be punished when it is noticed so why not the coaches?

I know what you're saying but that's how you end up with a bloodgate situation.

This specific incident has been on the horizon for a while (as the use of blood capsules was) and it's just the kind of thing that needs stamped out of the sport when it's caught.

Yeah that’s fair. I’m just saying I’m not sure Lam acted any differently than the majority of other coaches would of acted. I agree with the general jist of what you’re saying though. Just being a miserable sod and pointing out everyone is a lying cheating ******* if the conditions are right.

Absolutely, that was literally Dean Richards argument about bloodgate hahah, I'm pretty sure he's accused Woodward of doing it in the world cup as well, though I can't remember any major subs happening in that tournament

JP Du Preez, thought he was banned.

On wait that's JP Du Preez the other second row lock who is no way related to the other 3 Du Preez brothers. Bloody Sharks. Reckon at some point they've tried to put Rob in the pack and just assumed all the players name Du Preez play there. One is as good as another.

Could see a lot of tries.
Exeter will know that a potential TBP win and if Irish can beat Bristol that they will go top v Quins.
Even a normal win and Bristol not getting anything will mean top.

So Simmonds ankle or whatever is fine then. Thought he’d be ok but surprised he’s ok enough to start this weekend. Hope him and all the other lions come through ok.

Dan Luger, 16th man ring any bells? Although probably not technically a substitution as we didn’t bother taking off anyone.
