Reckless Brown sees red for vicious head stamp

Brown

Harlequins’ stunning last-minute victory over Wasps at the weekend was overshadowed by a reckless moment from former England fullback Mike Brown.  The long serving Halequin of more than 15 years and a 72 cap international, was sent from the field in the 44th minute after a clear and direct stamp to the head of Wasps hooker Tommy Taylor. Referee Wayne Barnes and TMO Stuart Terheege could find no mitigation for the action, determining that Brown was ‘conscious’ that the player …

One among a number of high profile omissions, the Bristol, England and 3 times capped Lions prop was conspicuous by his absence from Warren Gatland’s 37-man squad, with Gatland opting to select Scotland’s Zander Fagerson, Wales’ Wyn Jones and Ireland’s Andrew Porter ahead of the 28 year old Sinckler (capped 43 times …

2021 Lions Squad: Gatland Favours Power and Versatility

This Will Be Elliot Daly'S Second Lions Tour Lions Rugby

The announcement of Warren Gatland’s 37-man 2021 Lions squad has sent fans and pundits into a frenzy. England’s Jonny May, Scotland’s Jonny Gray and Ireland’s James Ryan and Johnny Sexton were considered by many to be shoe-ins for the team but each of them failed to get the call-up. These are by all account harsh decisions but it is important to remember that the Lions are not necessarily the best 37 best British and Irish internationals. Instead, Gatland and his …

Courageous Leicester march on, whilst Bath crumble

Leicester

At the start of the 2020-21 season, few would have predicted that Leicester Tigers would be in genuine contention for a major European trophy. Rock bottom of the 2019-20 Gallagher Premiership, Leicester were only spared relegation last season because of Saracen’s mammoth points deductions for breaking salary cap rules. If not for that, one of the most successful clubs in English rugby history would now be competing in the Championship – travelling away to the likes of Cornish Pirates and …
